Kayak Seat modifications
What are some kayak seat modifications you have done? It seems the standard issue seat doesn't have much butt padding or back support. I've heard some people use a stadium tailgate seat. Anyone heard of or tried this? Any other suggestions for seat modifications that give more padding and back support?

What kayak do you have?

I have a Native, so my seat is pretty much perfect. The seat is one of the most important things to look at when buying a kayak IMO

Get the gts expedition. Do not get a crack of dawn seat. I have this kayak and the cod seat will bruise your ass.

Damn...looks nice....if I had $200 to spend on a seat. Looking for a more financial savvy solution.

I velcroed a raised stadium seat to the pirogue when I used to use that. It worked pretty well. As long as the seat area isn't too flimsy it'd probably work fine in a kayak

Stadium seat brah. $40 (or less I guess, that was the first thing that popped up when I searched)

If the new ascend didn't have such a badass seat, I'd be tempted to try it fa sho.

The Hobie seats are insane, almost like a recliner.

They even have adjustable lumbar support

And the bottom folds up to give you more standing room!

I tried to find one for sale, the only one was on ebay for $560. Seems a little steep.

What about that Ascend seat I posted on pg 1. Looks to be pretty comfortable and should be a direct fit.
