    Comments about NRS Seat Pad - Firm:

    I was very excited that this seemed to fit perfectly on my touring kayaks hard seat but then found out it wouldn't stay on. I made sure the seat was clean, tried it in the warm sun, in the shade, tried standing and sitting on it and still had difficulty getting it to adhere to the plastic seat. It left a very large sticky imprint on the seat but the pad came off. Unless they change the glue I would not buy this again

    Nice but too hard

    Pros

    • Rugged

    Cons

    • Needs connection points
    • Sticky back not good
    • Too hard

    Comments about NRS Seat Pad - Firm:

    Great product but didn't expect it to be so hard. Wish I had waited on the back ordered softer version. Sticky back doesn't work for my application so some connection points to attach to kayak would be very good. No one likes a yard sale on the water.

    Might be good for a tractor

    By Cueball

    from NC

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about NRS Seat Pad - Firm:

    Hard, sculpted not hydophillic. Sticky back makes it pseudo permanant. Buy a piece of urethane foam and shape as needed or get a new seat. Unless you have a tractor this thing is just wrong for kayak.

        Paul, the foam is a dense, closed-cell material. It is covered and protected with a woven material.

        Paul,
        It is made of a pretty dense foam
        and has a slightly fitted seat area.
        I built a cedar 17 ft kayak and wanted something low profile so I could keep my center of gravity lower. Has been on my kayak now for 8 years with a week a summer use. When wet drys quick has stayed stuck without having to re-glue down. Keep in mind it is not spongy soft but tolerable.
        Been seated for a couple hours at a time before taking a break to get out to stretch.
        Hope this was helpful:)

        I think it's the same closed cell foam that they use for the blanks they sell for carving your own seats and padding, don't know the name. It doesn't soak up water and mine is still in good condition. At least 3 yrs on my boat.
