The Feelfree Gravity kayak seat is unlike any other kayak seat on the market. This super comfortable, and super adjustable seat, will make all day fishing trips feel like you're sitting in your favorite chair. The Gravity Seat adjusts up to 10 inches high in 1 inch increments. The backrest is fully adjustable and even reclines. In the low position the seat sits almost flush on the deck of your kayak and is the perfect height for paddling. The high position is going to offer more visibility and will be more comfortable. There is a mesh side pocket for tackle or other storage. The Gravity Seat needs a wide footprint, 23 inches of deck space from side to side and 16 inches from front to back. It does not come with any mounting hardware.
This seat was used as an upgrade from the original version Hobie seat for the 2011 Pro Angler. It took a little modification to a mounting bracket but it has worked flawlessly, and is (imho) the most comfortable version that can be used in and configuration for the Pro Angler line. It gives 10" of elevation adjustments to give you the best ride height for a multitude of situations. I have been extremely happy with this product thus far.
Tried this one out today in the store. I like what they are trying to do here in terms of a mix of comfort and raise- able lower ability. It felt somewhat heavy and thick and the back support didn't go up high enough for a tall guy. Also didn't have much give to it and I though the raising and lowering was a bit clumsy. There were also a lot of instructions as to maintaining the chair etc so it seems like there is some maintenance that needs to occur. For the price point would like to see more comfort, more give, more back support and airier mesh/ more breathable. I could see getting fairly sweaty in this chair.
I have used this seat numerous times while fishing with my Lure 13.5 in rivers, lakes and inshore coastal flat fishing. In my opinion I do not think it is a very comfortable seat. It's a great concept that you can raise and lower it as well as remove it from the boat and use it as a stand alone chair. However, comfort after a couple of hours will leave you thankful that you can stand up on your Lure and stretch your legs. The seat itself appears very comfortable with the nice looking cushioned seating, but unfortunately your hamstrings and rear end will start to fatigue whether in the raised or down position in just a few hours. I have a second boat (a Vibe Sea Ghost 110) that I bought as a backup for small rivers and the stationary seat it comes with is simple, yet will let me fish for 5 plus hours and never once feel fatigued or sore while sitting in it. This goes to show that not all seats are created equal. One last complaint is that the raising and lowering mechanism is at times a pain and you must BE SURE to constantly check and tighten all the bolts from the under seat hardware so that it stays screwed together or you will lose pieces and be forced to fix it (speaking from experience). There was a little line mentioning you must do all that in the instructions my Lure 13.5 came with. For such a great looking seat and the price to go with it, this seat should stay together in one piece without falling apart because screws come loose from regular and normal use.
