very nice product. Self-inflates to perfect thickness, or you can inflate more if desired. Velcro's securely to the Hobie seat. Appears sturdy enough to last awhile. Really makes a difference in butt comfort.

The pad helps but it doesn't solve all of the problems with the Hobie Mirage seat because it doesn't give you any additional padding over the webbing with the pegs that hold the seat in place. I’ve always considered the Hobie Mirage well designed except for the seat. Basically it has no comfortable position because of the way it fits into the “scooped out” seat area. It forces your bottom to slide down and back on the webbing that the pegs are attached to. This feels like you are sitting in a hard trench. The second problem is the pressure that it puts on the back of your legs between the hips and the knees, where the scoop angles up to the middle of the kayak. This cuts off circulation in the back of your legs. An improved pad design would be a wedge that is at least 4 inches thick at the back of the pad, then tapers to 1 to 2 inches thick at the front of the pad. Instead of attaching to the seat by a flap like the existing pad, add 2 Velcro straps to the top and bottom of the back side of the pad that are long enough to wrap around to seat back to hold the pad in place. This would be a simple design that could be quickly attached to the seat and you would still be able to reach under it to line up the seat pegs to the holes in the kayak. Attaching it to the back of the seat rather than the web and peg part would put padding over the web and pegs. Hobie still has work to do to improve the seat and/or pad.

These inflatable cushions are great with the original Hobie Island cloth seats. Keeps you higher & dryer, and they are comfortable. They do, after a couple years, develop pin hole leaks in the creases. It may be best to leave them inflated when stored.

Top Question & Answer
Q: Do the screws have to be removed from the existing seat and inserted in the inflatable seat? The stock seat bottom scrunches up when I slide back. Will this inflatable seat prevent that? Thanks, Jerry
A: This seat is attached with the same bolts that hold the standard seat in place to avoid that issue.

Q: I have the inflatable seat but the edging has pulled apart What would be best to reattach the seam?
A: The best seal we carry for a split seam would be Marine Goop. You can copy this link: https://www.austinkayak.com/products/5233/Marine-Goop-37-oz.html
