I wasn't expecting this to turn
my kayak into a Tempurpedic.
About six months ago I peeled
off the back and installed this
into my sea kayak. It's been
very comfortable ever since. I
have put hundreds of miles on
that kayak since. Now I have a
second sea kayak and am
purchasing another one for the
new boat. Top notch. I also use
the other Surf to Summit GTS
seats on my fishing kayak.
I was a little disappointed. The seat was
harder and less comfortable than I had
hoped for. I was expecting memory
foam/gel consistency and the seat itself is
fairly hard except for the outside edge. I
kept it to give it a try, but I would not have
bought it in a store had I handled it before
I bought a used tarpon with this pad
installed. When this pad gets wet, it
stays wet. I'm peeling this off and
installing a STS seat. I dont mind
getting wet, but I want a chance to
dry. This seat is a recipe for a soggy

This was a joke. I purchased it to
improve my seat. However, it is a
very bad product. Where your
buns sit maybe 1/4" thick! This
was a bad purchase.....
As a kayak fisherman, I spend
many hours sitting in my yak.
This seat cushion looked like
the solution to the invariable
butt numbness that goes along
with aforementioned activity
or lack thereof.
Unfortunately, this chunk of
padding did not live up to
The problem lies with the
advertised depth. Whereas
this seat is said to be 11/2
inches high, it is more like a
half to 3/4 inches high where
it counts. The rim around the
sitting area measures as
advertised. The business part
of the seat is so thin that I
can find virtually no
difference in comfort versus
this and the seat cushion that
came with my yak.
I do not recommend this
product if you are looking for
added comfort during longer
I own a kayak with a great,
seat. But after 4 or 5 hours,
my legs and rear are
numb. I bought the large seat.
It is firm and
amazingly comfortable. I love
it. Buy this seat.
I do not think I could have done six miles on the lake with out this seat! It fit, stayed in place and worked just fine.
Comfortable but a little less padded than I was expecting for the price!
Looking forward to trying this out, Best price I could find!
Great replacement seat. My stock seat on my '09
Ride just wasn't cutting it. Adhesive is super
sticky, make sure you know where it is going
before you put it down. No worries about it
moving ever without some serious muscle, should
you ever have to remove it. Makes hours on the
water so much more enjoyable.
Fast delivery, Great price.. Work Great, Makes paddling even more enjoyable.. Really do stick, even on our Old Town Otter & T160.
I was skeptical at first about the strength of the adhesive. I have a lot of shape in my seat of my Tarpon 160. I was worried about it being flexible enough to fit the deep dish of the seat and it works great! The adhesive is super strong, just make sure you line it up right before you place it(you only get one shot). Very happy with the seat, it is comfortable.
