    I bought an extra thwart seat to use as a foot brace for paddling through rapids. Works well with the thigh braces I also purchased.

        Comments about NRS Outlaw IK Thwart Seat:

        I put two of these in an old Aire Lynx. What an improvement in performance. It is now stiffer and even more bouyant. They provide both a great seat back and foot rest. I'd put my old Lynx up against any rubber ducky out there now!

        • NRS Outlaw IK Thwart Seat

          Q:

          I've had a Bandit for many years now with the old style seats (similar to a Crazy Creek) and during a recent trip, I noticed new inflatable seats on another kayaker's newer model . I saw two people in their tandem and one was using it as a backrest and the other was sitting on top which got me wondering... What was NRS's intent on how to use this seat or was either way listed above valid use? I've got my suspicions but I just wanted to hear from you guys! Awesome product and thank you so much for allowing me to have so much fun on my local rivers!

            A:

            There are two great advantages to using a thwart seat. First, the thwart
            as a cross member, adds some rigidity to the boat. Second, it makes for a
            very comfortable backrest. Yes, sit your butt down on the floor of the
            boat and use the thwart as a backrest. Sitting on the floor gives you a
            much lower center of gravity and allows you to feel the water much more.
            Have fun.

            I have an Outlaw with an inflatable thwart seat like the one you describe. It is intended to be used as a backrest, but that's not to say you couldn't sit on one to stretch your feet or change position briefly in calm water... even to gain a few inches of height for downstream visibility. But it would put your center of gravity way high and be pretty easy to slide off. I use both.. an aire cheetahs chair resting back against the thwart. I like the solidity of the thwart seat, but it's rough on the back over the course of a long day. Cheers.

            Bruce, this is a case where we've probably misnamed the product. It's intended use is as a backrest. As you saw, you can certainly sit on it, in calm water. It you did that in any vigorous whitewater, that higher center of gravity would probably lead to a swim! I hope that helps. Glad you've enjoyed your Bandit; they're great boats.

            Joe, the straps you see on the ends of this Thwart Seat are designed to cinch down through the floor drain holes. Looking online I don't see how the drain holes are arranged on your boat.
