OUTFITTING : Comfort
Kayak seat technology has vastly improved over the last couple decades, but no seat is perfect. Sometimes the solution is more padding, other times its best to switch out the seat completely. This section is where those options can be found.
We offer a variety of gel and foam padding solutions to offer paddler’s the most comfortable fit for their particular need, no matter how long their trip may be, or what style kayak seat they own.
We also offer replacement seats for any kayak that comes from the factory with a clip-in style seat. These seats offer comforts many factory seats don’t, such as thick foam padding, higher backs, lumbar support, and fishing attachments.
Lastly, we offer padding solutions related to the paddle. There are a couple different approaches to this, you can wear paddling gloves, or attach gel pads to your paddle, either way giving more cushion between you at the paddle to reduce fatigue and help prevent blisters over longer paddles.
