I am in the camp that thinks the stock Hobie Kayak Seats are uncomfortable. I did some searching and found the following options for replacing:

Seairsports Pacific Angler Seat

Wilderness Phase 3 Airpro Seat
http://www.austinkayak.com/products/922 ... -High.html


SURF TO SUMMIT GTS Expedition Seat
http://www.kayakfishingsupplies.com/ser ... eat/Detail

FeelFree Gravity Kayak seat
http://www.austinkayak.com/products/150 ... -seat.html


Jackson Elite Coosa

From I can tell, it looks the Jackson seat is probably the best Mod the the average guy could do. I am interested in what others have and would like to see the setup before I order one and go drilling my yak.

I have the S2S GTS. I can sit all day and not have a problem with my back or a numb backside.

The stock seats are good for filling a garbage can.

saltfisherman/Kramster- Are these seats plug and play or need a lot of modding?

(pictures please?)

Basher. Just a extra set of plastic loops to be mounted for the seat straps.

The seat doesn't need to use the seat plugs that hobie uses. Seat doesn't shift around either.


Not sure how well the picture I have shows you enough. Take a look. This is a different seat I tried too but uses the same attachment points as the S2S.

Plug and play...after typical adjusting... they don't have the plugs in the bottom so may slide a lil... the Skwoosh slides a bit more and I am wearing out the seat (butt) a bit ...I could prolly tighten the straps a wee bit more as well
