ACK Review: About 6 months ago I noticed that when I would spend an extended amount of time paddling my kayak, my legs would start to ache and eventually go numb. I started researching aftermarket seats and came to the conclusion that it was the seat bottom that was giving me the most grief — not the seat back. My research brought me to the Skwoosh Gel Seat Pad Cushion so I decided to buy it and give it a try. After just one trip out I noticed a considerable difference. My legs did not ache nearly as bad and I did not have any circulation issues either. As a person that regularly fishes tournaments from a kayak, it is important to have a comfortable place to sit and fish from for up to 8hrs at a time. PROS: I really like the fact that it is compact and has low profile while still being very comfortable. The cushion folds up and can be packed away easily. Having a lower profile keeps your bottom closer to the kayak, which helps keep your center of gravity balanced. The gel seems to conform to your body which provides a great deal of comfort. I also like the rubberized texture in the bottom of the cushion because it acts as a grip, which helps keep it in place. This is important because if you decide to adjust your position in the kayak, the seat cushion stays put. CONS: The only real complaint that I would have about this seat cushion is the fact that it does not have a better way to permanently or temporarily attach itself to the kayak. There is a small loop in the back to attach a tether, but if I was to load the kayak in the truck and then take off and forget to remove it from the seat, there is a chance it would fly off. Overview: I am extremely happy with the Skwoosh seat pad cushion. The initial price point may seem a little high, but when you take into the account the time spent on it and the benefits that it provides, it is worth it. I would recommend this product for anyone who had the same issues I did, or someone looking for a more comfortable ride in their kayak. I give this product 4 out of 5 stars.

Delighted with all items for my Ocean Kayak. Seat is stiffer and forms better around my back causing less leg fatigue. Cushion adds more comfort as well to my GF's kayak. Complete satisfaction here.

Really helps with the sitter. Thin so it doesn't add much height. I glued some velcro on two edges to keep in in place.

Seat works well from me. I am small frame, 133 lbs and contrary to another review of this product, I don't find the padding too thin. Kayaking for many years, I am very sensitive to every little change. I do feel like I am sitting slightly higher and glad that I did not buy something any thicker.

I was skeptical, seeing how thin the pad was, but in use it made a tremendous difference in my comfort. After an all-day paddling excursion and an all-day pedaling excursion on my Hobie Outback I had little to none of the discomfort I have experienced prior to the pad's use. I use it with my standard seat padding; it's a welcome addition!

I had one of these before for my surf ski, failed to lash it by the handy retaining loop, picked up the ski and lost the cushion. Bought another, which says how much I liked it. It arrived practically the next day.

Not so good in the comfort department. Better than sitting on the kayak plastic directly, but most boat seats work just as well for comfort. TekPad gel is just too thin. Suggest you look at thicker pad or inflatable pads if comfort is important. Does stay put in a variety of circumstances. Very light. Not really comfortable.

Well made, but did not solve the problem I had hoped. Not much support.

Looks thin, but don't tell my butt. After 17 miles on the Mississippi River last weekend I was, unbelievably, not sore.

Just purchased this for my Tarpon 120. Have not had a chance to try it out on an all day trip but appears to help when trying it in the garage. Not extremely thick but appears to do the job. Agree that a backrest pad would be nice as well.
