I often fish for 8-9 hours a day from my Hobie Revo 13 or my OK Prowler 15. Most of the time I use a Tree Stand Cushion on top of the stock seat, but it changes your COG on the SOT kayaks. This pad provides just the right amount of cushioning for me and keeps my COG much lower than the Tree Stand Cushion. So far I am happy with the product and cant say enough about Austin Canoe and Kayak. I recommend them to anyone getting into the kayaking world.
This pad is ok....not as great as I thought it would be. I does help, but I'm not sure that it is worth the price.
Well I can say that the seat cushion did add some comfort when sitting on my Yak seat after fishing for 6 hours straight. However, it comes with a small sewn on loop that's obviously made to secure it to your boat. Brand new out of the bag and I grab it by the sewn on loop and the loop tears and separates from the cushion. So yes it floats, but now I have a black seat cushion that if somehow I were to flip my boat, well you can imagine a black seat floating away in a lake with dark water. Yeah, 50 dollars would be lost forever. So 3 stars for a decent cushion and 1 star if I happen to lose it as it floats away.
As previous purchasers stated, I was leery about the thickness...but after 3 good paddle trips I am sold. No soreness! I was skeptical but I am now a believer!
