        Hip pads were close to perfect right out of the bag. Thigh pads needed a little work, but not much.

        good product, just a bad description

        Comments about Padz Kayak Deluxe Outfit Kit:

        I got this to outfit an oldschool boat where all the foam was pretty much gone. The pads work great and I fit in my boat way better now. The only problem I had was that the product description is unclear about whether on not it comes with the glue. It doesn't, so this process was both more expensive than I thought and took more time because I had to order the glue after I already got the foam.

          Comments about Padz Kayak Deluxe Outfit Kit:

          I have seen a lot of reviews aimed at whitewater and touring kayakers. This is for all you recreational paddlers. Customize your ride! Recreational kayaks are designed to appeal to a variety of people. The only adjustments are the seatback and footpegs. By adding Padz you can add comfort and control to your kayak and greatly improve the way it responds. With a little effort in fitting, placing and glueing this product will transform your generic craft into an extension of your body. The minicel foam is easy to work with and can be installed in little time working alone.

              This kit included everything I needed to custom-fit a cockpit. Components were nicely sized for a good surface to trim down, and working with them was easy.
              I wish the kit had included appropriate sandpaper for filing and smoothing (I luckily had materials from another kit).
              Overall, good quality and value to save the work of chiseling from full blocks of foam.

                Are these pads made for whitewater kayaking or recreational kayaking like in a lake?

                  Hi, I bought these to outfit a sea kayak that was being used in bumpy, winter conditions. They were probably designed for a WW boat. I don't think there is much need to outfit a canoe. I hope this helps. WW or SK.

                  Gday,
                  You can use them most any kayak, I used them on my sea kayak, and it really helped to learn to roll when I was "wearing" the boat, instead of flopping around inside it.

                  If you are outfitting your boat for a tighter fit, these pads will work
                  for either white water outfitting or flat water. But in general,
                  kayakers would use this type of kit to snug up a whitewater boat that
                  they plan to roll...

                  I've used these pads in whitewater, sea, and surf kayaks. If you want to glue in permanent outfitting to give you better boat control, and don't want the hassle of carving your own, this will help.

                  They are used to give you a snug fit in your boat, so the boat moves with you and you have better control. They work for any type of kayaking.

                  In response to the question about the product's utility for freshwater kayaking, what I believe would be most important are the knee braces. They give a person much more control over a kayak than not having them. That'd be especially important when you'd need to turn the kayak fairly quickly, as when floating downstream on a river to avoid obstacles. They would become relevant on a lake if the wind and waves picked up, because they'd give you more control. They provide a snug fit and more control--as long as your cockpit is not too wide.
                  I'm not sure if this particular set of pads is optimal compared to competitors, given that my main focus is knee braces.
                  Also think about hip pads. I'm not sure if they are in the packet but you could ask. For narrow-hipped folks like me, they keep me from flopping around the cockpit in challenging water.
                  If you ever plan to learn to roll, moreover, knee pads are essential and hip pads are desirable.
                  Good luck,
                  Bill

                  I used mine for a whitewater kayak, but I'm sure they could be used for any
                  kind. Just glue them in!
