Seat seems to be very well made.
T. Langston
I bought these seats for my husband and I to use in our canoe, we spend long days on the river and it's nice to be able to lean back.

Just the right amount of cushioning on the seat, and good lumbar support for your back.

Seat seems to be very well made. They were very comfortable for the five day canoe trip my son and I just made. My only concern is that the hinges are made of a plastic material and I don't know how long that will last as I am 220 lbs and I like to lean back. The thicker seat cushioning was far better than the Crazy Creek seats we have been using and the back adjustment system was easy and did not require the fiddling that the other seats require during the day. I would buy again and highly recommend them.

I have the an older version, all one color, and it's an LL Bean model, and I paid more for it than here, but still the basic same.

The split seat really helps it adjust to differing seats if you need it to. I solo trip a lot. My Sit-backer has been a wonderful canoe seat that really helps me spend 12 hours or more on the water if I want to - fishing as well as paddling to get somewhere. It works on the cane seat, and with the spit bottom, it works flat on the bottom of the canoe too against the thwart.

It's also a fantastic camp chair - so I don't have to pack another one.

It's a great portage yoke on my Old Town Pack canoe - I just unstrap it, turn it around, fold it flat, strap it tight, and flip the canoe over onto my shoulders and pack - the sitbacker rest comfortably on my pack. It's basically hands free from that point.

I've used it at sporting events, of course, and it's been a great piece of gear for me for prob. close to 5 years now. will buy another one as needed, definitely.

I'm in the process of restoring a very old canoe and these seats work fantastically. Very easy to adjust and they simply strap onto the existing wicker seating with velcro straps. I know that sounds like a cheap secure job, but the straps are long and strong enough to handle it. I highly recommend these to anyone who just wants a little back support for their canoes. Fisherman, these also have enough give for when you really need to dig back in your pull.

Let me start out by saying I'm not the type of person who says that a product is either awesome or sucks. I tend to be realistic about my evaluations, and most of the stuff I buy (whether on Amazon or at other places) gets three stars. Furthermore, I don't evaluate most of the stuff I buy, because it's just not worth my time. But with that said...

I've been an avid canoer/kayaker for about 20 years. I've paddled the Boundary Waters, multi-day downriver trips in several states, and whitewater in Wisconsin. One thing that always sucked was sitting on a bench seat in a canoe. That came to a happy ending with the purchase of this seat. I specifically bought this seat for a homemade plywood and fiberglass canoe. I custom-fit the seats based on the dimensions of this seat. My teenage daughter and I paddled downriver for several hours, and I can't say enough good stuff about this seat. I've never had such a comfortable ride down the river.

Once the run was over, I just used the portage strap and popped the boat back on my truck. I didn't even remove the seat until the trip was finished.

The ONLY downside I could possibly come up with is that it may be a bit flimsy for heavier paddlers. I have a friend who is about 300 lbs, and he was pushing the limits of what the seat could hold.

We were headed to Brazil for eight days on the Amazon. Someone who had just done the same trip warned me that if I had back problems (I do), I should get a canoe seat with a back. I quickly ordered the GCI Outdoor SitBacker and had it sent to my grandson's home. He was joining us on the trip. He was able to bring it in his suitcase, and I was able to take it back home in mine. It was, indeed, a real back saver. We were out on canoes for 2+ hours at a time, from 1 - 3 times each day. Just one canoe trip without it would have ruined the rest of the trip for me. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is that I thought the side strap adjustment could have been a little tighter. But I was able to use this even on a canoe with no way to strap the seat to the bench. My weight was enough to keep it firmly on the seat. The seat padding was also very good. My husband had no cushion and complained that his bottom was sore at the end of each trip. I am so glad I spent the money on this instead of just a stadium seat.

Bought this at a local sporting goods store to try on a 14 mile canoe trip. Previously I had been using the frameless bleacher type seats on my canoe seats for a couple of years and I wanted to try an upgrade. I don't think the brand is important, but the one's I started with were Alp's Mountaineering ones if you want to look them up. I since found some no name ones of the same design on clearance at the same local sporting goods store for $8 and stocked up a few more after returning this GCI seat.

I am a bit of a bigger guy. 5'10" and 230 #'s. The problems I had with this seat were that it felt like it was always pushing me over the front edge of the canoe seat. I was constantly trying to scoot my weight back into the seat to keep from feeling like I was falling off. Way too much work for sitting down to me. Maybe if you are of smaller stature the limited depth of the seat would be more comfortable to you, but for me I found the extra depth of the bleacher seats to be far more accommodating to me, and vastly more comfortable as a result. Also when I leaned back into this seat I could feel the top frame bar press in to my back. That is not comfortable. Again this problem does not exist on the frameless seat variety. I also like the thinner padding on the bleacher seats, I feel more stable and connected to the canoe, but still adds plenty of comfort to the canoe seat for all day paddles. All of these little quibbles added up really made me dislike everything about this seat other than the construction and build quality, which seem very good. I just could not enjoy using it, despite really wanting to like it.
