Skwoosh Fishing Chair Seat Pad

rated 5 of 5 stars Hard seat? Then add some skwoosh for your tush... Skwoosh is a US company specializing in seat pads. They cover every conceivable option from wheelchairs to motorcycles.

GCI Outdoor SitBacker

rated 3.5 of 5 stars This canoe seat offered excellent back comfort during a five-day paddling wilderness adventure.
