Rated 2 out of 5 by brtf Not good for narrow seats.
I tried to use this on a 10" wide seat in a dinghy. When leaning against the backrest even slightly, the straps underneath that hold the seat to the bench would loosen. I couldn't get it to stop happening. I probably could've used tape to hold the straps fast, but I'm not willing to take that extra step every time.

We bought two of these seats for a 16 foot Old Town Camper. The boat is about 20 years old and came with cane seats. These folding seats are much more comfotable than the original equipment, and they install easily. A good buy that makes paddling for hours much more doable.

The only answer to keeping you comfortable in a canoe. It adjusts and attaches with ease. Well made. Worth every cent and more. Stop lower back pain and get this seat.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Keifer724 Does NOT fit Coleman Scanoe
Straps are not long enough to reach around seats in the Scanoe.
I made up a set of extender straps for about $8.00. Even then it wasn't very secure. I didn't have much confidence in putting a lot of weight on the back rest. This may work perfectly well for a traditionally designed flat wooden canoe seat.

Actually haven't gotten to use it yet but think it will be perfect for our needs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Alfred123 canoe comfort
I received my seats for my canoe delivered to my door for the same price as having to go to a competitor's store. These seats are comfortable and easy to attach and take off. I only gave them four stars because one of them had a small stain on the back. I didn't want to send it back because it would've been too much of a hassle.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Mountaindogmom Doesn't Fit Our Coleman Scanoe
While the quality of this seat seems to be top-notch, it will not fit our Coleman Scanoe. The straps are not long enough to reach under the Scanoe's curved seat bottoms, even when the straps are fully extended. So, we'll be returning the two we purchased. However, I'd recommend them -- just not if you have a Scanoe.

Rated 3 out of 5 by FishingBud Good enough for the money, I guess!
It lack a little bit of caushion for the butt and the back rest is too weak.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CanoeFisherman Great seat!
We had used a friends' canoe for the past 2 summers and they owned these Sit Backer canoe seats. We were so impressed that we bought our own. They improved the design with a little more padding for the lower back. It fits perfectly on our canoe seats, just like it did on our friends' canoe. I spent 2 painless hours on the river fishing, an didn't have to constantly move around to stay comfy. When we opened the package, we were also pleasantly surprised to find out that you can also use them on bleachers. Since we spend a lot of time at our sons' football games, that was an added bonus. These seats are worth every penny! Thanks L.L. Bean for carrying quality!
