How to Choose the Best Seat for Your Kayaking Adventure

There are many different factors to consider while choosing the right type of kayak seat. You need to look for a seat that is comfortable and offers complete back support. With many kayak seats reviewed online in different blogs and sites, a large number of professional kayakers still prefer comfort over budget, whereas some consider budget as their topmost priority.

Without investing in proper equipment, you won't be able to enjoy your kayaking trip in its true essence. So, why not invest in a good seat and take your kayaking experience to a whole new level? The following are some essential factors to consider while investing in a kayak seat.

Size Matters
Size is a significant factor to consider for choosing the right seat for your kayak. Make sure to measure the proper dimensions of your boat, including the width and length, to avoid getting a wrong sized seat.

Sit Inside vs. Sit- On -Top Kayak
Whether, you have a sit inside or sit- on -top kayak, you will have to choose a seat accordingly. Many seats are adjustable and can work for both types of boats. Still, it is recommended to choose a seat based on the type of your boat. Also, make sure that its back can extend between (12 to 17 in.) from the seat.

Gel Based Cushions
There are many different gel-based cushions available online that can give extra support to your back while paddling. However, they are not as effective as they don't come with any attachments and can easily slip from the back.

Budget and More
The price of a basic kayak seat ranges between $20-$300. Still, it is recommended to invest in a high-quality seat that could last for years. If you have a limited budget, then try to pick one within the $45-$60 range.

Durability and Comfort
Seats that are cheaper than this price range may not be as sturdy, durable, or comfortable and may even hurt your back. The material of your seat is as relevant as the boat itself. A high-end material can last longer and can resist different weather conditions.

A thicker cushion seat may soak more water and may take a while to dry. Still, if you have a weak back, then a thicker cushion may provide you extra support for paddling.

Other Factors to Consider
•Neoprene Fabric is a good option as it is more resistant to different temperatures.
•Molded Foam is not as durable as neoprene, especially for hot weather conditions.
•EVA Foam is light but is more durable than molded foam.
•Polyester is extremely durable and can withstand severe weather conditions.

However, it is mostly used to give an additional protective layer to the seat.

To Sum Up
Whether you are a newbie or a seasoned kayaker, by investing in the right seat for your boat, you can make your kayaking experience more fun and comfortable. Try to consider the size of your boat, climate, material, and budget while choosing a new seat for your boat.
