Not many other kayak seats offer the total comfort that the FeelFree KingFisher Kayak Seat does. Its unique construction controls the degree of flex laterally without putting pressure on the sensitive lower areas of the body. A dedicated conjure lumbar cushion gives the extra support in the lower back area. An internal skeleton retains shape and comfort for hour after hour with no adjustment. The seat will not sag or collapse with continual use.
I love this seat. I've used it in open water in the Gulf off Florida a lot, some lakes, and a resevoir. I use the seat for about 6 -8 hours per trip and it's very comfortable with nice support. I have it installed in a Field and Stream Eagle Talon SOT kayak. It looks right, feels right and is worth the extra money. It makes this Kayak better. I needed support from customer service and the service at ACK went above and beyond to make sure I was satisfied. I am now a loyal customer. I highly reccomend this seat and this site for purchase.
I have had this seat for 6months and it "broke". Let me say first I am very hard on my equipment. I go yak'n 2-3 times per week in tough fishing conditions. The problem with this seat is that because the back straps do not go all the way around the back rest a "bulge" or big "crimp" happens right in the lumbar area of your back. Once this happens from wear, there is no fixing it. I bought a Summit seat and it works great.
Seat is now manufactured without the bottom adjustable buckle for the strap which ties to the back of the kayak. This lack of the buckle makes it extremely difficult to properly adjust. When finally adjusted to the best of the seats capabilities, I took it out for a day of fishing on the water. Long story short, my back hurt more by the end of the day with the kingfisher seat than the original cheap seat that came with my kayak. The back holds its rigid shape with what seems like a flimsy piece of plastic which bends and crackles when leaning back on the seat. Overall, this seat failed all of my expectations. 2 stars, the best thing about this seat is the material of the outside.
As usual, ACK was great. This seat however, was not. The back is very flimsy and the attachment points are only about halfway up. As a result, when you lean back, the back just folds over and you flop back, making it essentially a nine inch high seat. I returned it before ever using it. ACK made the return process super easy, though. My advice is to call before ordering a seat and ask a customer service person about it. They are terrific.
