Love this cushion. Folds in half and stores easily in my gear bag. Just enough gel to support my bottom.
A little small for me. I am 6'1" and weigh 200lbs. Doesnt really stay put well but some velcro took care of that. It doesn't make as big of a difference as I had hoped. It is not unusual for me to fish 5- 6 hrs at a time without getting up and I was hoping it would be better than it is.
I have an Ocean Kayak, Venus 11 with a good seat, but after 3-4 hours of paddling, my back side was getting sore and falling asleep. I used the Skwoosh Extreme Kayak Seat Pad Cushion on my last 4- hour paddle and, voila!, no more sore backside!! It doesn't look like it would make that much difference, but it made paddling much more comfortable and fun. Since I didn't want to lose my new pad if I capsized or in carrying my kayak around, I also purchased the Skwoosh Kayak Seat Cushion Tether (it's only $4), which worked great to secure it to my existing seat. My reason for giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is that I think the pad should come with the tether.
Defintely made my kayak seat more comfortable without raising me up to high to comfortably paddle.
