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
Love at first sit! I have a Pescador 10 sot and I have had nothing
but major tailbone pain when I use the stock seat. The stock seat
has so much padding in the tailbone area that puts tons of pressure
right on my tailbone. It almost feels like most of my weight is on
my tailbone. I bought the Skwoosh seat and used it for the first
time today and I was instantly amazed at the comfort the minute I
sat in my kayak. No tailbone pain. Very comfortable gel padding on
my sit bones. I was completely thrilled and knew I had to write a
review. I thought I was going to have to live with the pain and very
uncomfortable buttocks while kayaking. Now I know I can be
comfortable and pain free.
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!
So far so good - Only been out once, but this pad seems to have really
helped w. lower back pain. I was out for about 4-5 hours (vs my usual
2-3) and didn't have any discomfort. Giving it 4 stars until I have the
opportunity to try it a few more times......
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
Sore butt ....no more !!!

Excellent. Does not slide around
and keeps you comfortable during
I ordered this for my wife. Thought i would
surprise her with a butt pad that would help
with the pain, after sitting in the kayak for
40 plus minutes to go
around our lake. it is not enough cushion for
her. Maybe I should have ordered two of
them. Who would know, it seemed, by the
ad it was a great pad.
Improves my longterm comfort in my
Perception Conduit 13 more than I
expected based on the thickness of the
cushion. My only criticism is that it seems
a tad expensive for what it is. Other than
that I am happy with my purchase
I am using this seat pad in my
Ride 135. The seat in this
kayak is already pretty good
but after about 5 hours in the
saddle I was experiencing pain
at the tail end of my spine.
This is due to an old injury.
With this pad I have spent as
long as 8 or 9 hours fishing in
my kayak without any pain!!! I
only wish I had discovered this
This pad works great for me
(age 62, 5' 9", 190 lbs)! I yak
a NW Mariner 12.5 Propel.
Without it, my butt was
seriously aching after just a
couple of hours. With the
Skwoosh I don't experience
any discomfort even after 4
hours out fishing.
I used it on my office chair for
a week, waiting for the
weather to warm a bit, and it
made a noticeable difference
Works great, as advertised.
