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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBeanFrog Very good product
This seat is well made and it is very comfortable. It has several features that add to its portability too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by alabre very disappointed
I bought this for my daughter who was taking an 8 day trip up the Allagash River. After crossing Chamberlain Lake, 1 day into her trip, the seat ripped apart along the middle. She jerry rigged it with duct tape, which was a poor substitute. Very poorly constructed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vermonter05001 Bought a 2nd one bec we liked the first
Hubby had his for several years and finally I got one, too. We still make a point of using our torso muscles to maintain good paddling technique and posture, but it's nice to be able to relax into these when looking around, taking a break, etc. Very easy to put on & take off. Haven't tried any of the other canoe seats w/backs so can't offer comparisons, but these are working well for us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OccasionalPaddler Great for all day paddling!
Very comfortable to paddle all day. Helps support my back; which gets tired and sore. The padded seat works well too!
Much better than all fabric seats that don't provide support like this metal framed seat. They're in the same price range, and I've used them before I purchased the Sit Backer.
Attaches quickly and easily to the canoe seat with 2 buckles and they hold without having to keep being adjusted.
It's very light and doesn't add enough weight to be able to tell it's there. Folds flat and doesn't flop around when using the "portage tab."
I won't paddle without it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by jisk well worth the money
We use these for the canoe and as seats on the beach to relax and not be on the sand directly. They would be great stadium seats as well. Comfortable and sturdy enough to lean back with your full weight.
