Gel Seat Specifications
The Yakpads Paddle Saddle is surprisingly thick and heavy despite its size. It’s around 16 inches long, 16 inches wide and 12 inches high. It also weighs around 2.8 pounds.
The Yakpads Paddle Saddle doesn’t have a lot of features. It is essentially a gel-filled back cushion with a simple design.
Its only major feature is its gel-filled seat cushion which allows the user to stay on their kayak for extended amounts of time without raising their center of gravity.
Despite its simple design, it works surprisingly well.
The backrest attaches easily and the quick snap buckles require no adjustments. It also stays stable after hours of use.
The Yakpads Paddle Saddle includes a set of quick snap buckles.
How It Performs
Despite its simple design and lack of sophisticated accessories, the Yakpads Paddle Saddle works exceptionally well.
It’s stable, durable and easy to install. It can also keep the lower and middle parts of your back comfortable, even after several hours of paddling.
The non-slip bumps and gel seat cushions are surprisingly resilient, and they can retain their integrity even after several weeks of use.
Even the body’s center of gravity cannot affect the performance of the Paddle Saddle, and as long as you watch your posture, it will keep your torso comfortable.
Its only real problem is its size. It may be a little too small for larger people, and so it’s not the kind of item that you may enjoy if you have a large torso. That one problem aside, the Saddle Paddle is a simple product with great features and a reasonable price.
The Yakpads Paddle Saddle is the kind of seat pad that was designed for comfort and durability.
It’s covered with UV resistant nylon cloth for added durability, while its gel-filled cushions can keep your lower and middle back comfortable for several hours.
On the other hand, the Yakpads Paddle Saddle is not as large as other seat pads, and it doesn’t have a lot of accessories to offer.
Despite these problems, the Yakpads Paddle Saddle offers excellent support and comfort. There are plenty of other seat pads that offer a lot of features and accessories, but they rarely offer the same level of comfort that the Paddle Saddle features.
In short, the Yakpads Paddle Saddle is a very comfortable seat pad, and although it’s not perfect, it’s definitely one of the best seat pads to be released this 2019.
