Comfy. Works both on the canoe and on the ground (as a camp chair).


  • Floats but doesn't absorb much water
  • Thicker pad underneath
  • Simple, rugged design
  • Widely adjustable straps


  • Rigid (don't expect to roll it up)
  • Hmmm, how might I elevate it into a chair?

Use on the Water, Easy As 1, 2, 3:  

   1.  Click straps under the seat.  

   2.  Adjust side strap lengths.  

   3.  Paddle all day.

Use in Camp.  Decent ground-bound chair or kneeling pad. I'm trying to figure out a simple, cheap, lightweight way to raise it up 6-8" into more of a chair.  (Maybe using old tent poles to hold it up, maybe sling it somehow....)

Use inside a Tent.  Like most foam pads products, can be used to supplement your sleeping system insulation. I like it to boost up my pillow with it folded in half. You might find the thicker bottom pad is enough and so use the backrest as torso padding. Or maybe to elevate your feet.

Not much else to write. It's simple, strong, and just works.


This wouldn't raise you up, but I have dug into the sand or gravel to allow chairs like this to lean back for more of a recline.
