The AIRE Cheetah Chair has a stiff backpad for excellent back support. The stiff backpad also allows for more storage area or leg room between seats on the tandem kayaks. This chair can be used in either AIRE or NRS inflatable kayaks. Take it out of the boat for an excellent camp chair.

    I had a seat that was comfortable but it had al tubes on sides and bottom and I was concerned re wear on my outlaw 1 inflatable. This seat works great and is soft enough to do no harm.

      Comments about AIRE Kayak Cheetah Chair:

      I bought this to replace the thwart seat that came stocked with the 2013 Tributary Tomcat. A much better seat IMO. This seat has storage space. On a recent trip I put a blue freezee in there with 6 beers and was a one man party barge inbetween rapids and on the way out the canyon. The storage bag has durable mesh and drains readily.
      The seat has more back support, is easy to install and un-install.
      The strap that goes under the boat is a necessary piece of equipment when performing self rescue if/when tipped.
      I now use the thwart seat as a foot brace near the front.
      Excellent, and if you have the same intrique I did and 60 odd dollars, it's a must.

        This is the seat that used to come with the Aire Tributary Tomcats. I used it with an older Tomcat and bought another Tomcat that came with the lame little pillow seats. These seats are more comfortable, more adjustable, and have the nice storage in the rear.

        Comments about AIRE Kayak Cheetah Chair:

        This is a much more comfortable backrest than an inflatable thwart. It has more back structure and yet it can stay attached to the kayak and roll up with the boat for storage. It also has a handy pocket on the back and a cup holder for a 12 can of your favorite beverage. It straps in through the self-bailing holes and adjusts quickly with NRS style cam buckles.

              A:

              Dan, the straps on front and back corners will span ~13" from the seat to a tiedown point. If that's not far enough, you could always add your own length of 1" webbing - http://www.nrs.com/product/1450.5/nrs-1-colored-webbing

              Not sure of the measurements, I believe it's 3 loops for the base then a few loops behind the seat to keep the back pulled up, I bought two and love them

            Q:

            Is there a repair policy in place for sewing new straps on to your cheetah chairs? I am a happy Tomcat Aire owner but my straps are finally deteriorating. Can I get a quote for strap repair and shipping, so I can evaluate this against the cost of buying two new chairs? Thanks!

              Meagan, we can't replace the straps for you. However, there's no need to buy new ones. Any good upholstery shop should be able to attach new straps, using the existing buckles. If they don't have the right webbing, check with us for that. Give us a call with questions, 800.635.5202.

              Cant see how you can do that facing forward. where would they put their feet?  Facing backwards looks like it would work. Maybe put a cooler or tackle box between the seats as a support for the backrest.

              We have two in a Aire Tomcat Tandem, which the specs say is 12' 9" long and 38.5 inches wide. Sounds like one would fit fine in yours. They're pretty comfortable and have a handy bottle holder and zip pocket on the back.

              I guess it would depend on how wide the base of you kayak is, I have a tandem and have purchased two of them. Does your boat have the loops in the bottom?

              A:

              I think it would but check the return policy just in case. Be aware that you may find the new seat just as uncomfortable. I found my aire seats to be marginal in comfort and wet in white water. I used to put an inflatable seat pad under the Aire seat to make it a bit drier. I think it was made by cascade designs. That was the best I came up with. I also invested in a pair of neoprene shorts(like a wet suit). That turned out to be a very good solution for me. Good luck, and happy paddling.

              A:

              It's 14" high (measured on the side facing your back). There are straps
              hanging from 4 buckles on the seat (2 in front and 2 in back); each has a
              loop end and 2 free ends. Your boat should also have loops on the side
              that these can attach to. Undo the buckles on the seat and run the strap
              loop thru the boat loop, then feed the free ends thru the strap loop and
              pull tight. Then reconnect the buckles to attach the seat. Use the buckles
              to adjust the strap lengths to take up any slack or to move the seat
              forward or back.
