Planning on paddling long distances this summer? Enjoy the journey across the lake or down the river by cushioning your kayak's or canoe's seat. Seats made for sit-on-top kayaks and sit-inside kayaks or padded seats that fit securely on the bench of your canoe provide support and comfort from dock to dock.
Choosing the right seat for your kayak or canoe is important in any situation, but especially when outfitting an angler's vessel. Adjustable straps with sturdy hooks anchor the seat securely inside your kayak, while a nonskid bottom prevents sliding as you move to reel in a catch or cast off. For added versatility, browse seats for use in and out of the water - some portable canoe seats and kayak seats fit almost any bench, so you can sit comfortably in the stands at a game or around the campfire as well as in your boat.
If you're planning on sitting out on the water for longer periods of time, ensure you'll be comfortable with a properly padded seat made with breathable fabric. EVA foam padding provides ample cushioning, while neoprene fabric helps keep you cool under the heat of the sun. If your back needs extra support, choose a canoe seat with built-in lumbar cushioning to keep fatigue and discomfort at bay. While prepping for your trip, ensure you have all the kayak and canoe accessories and paddle sports gear you need for a comfortable ride.
