Rated 5 out of 5 by CanoeFisherman from 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 Deutchland from Row Worthy We did some hunting around for some nice canoe seats. I have purchased multiple items from LLBean and just love them as a company. After comparing quality / price and appearance I decided to go with these. I purchased 2 of these seats for our canoe. We tried them out this past Saturday and Sunday, we are so happy with our purchase. The adjustable lumbar support is perfect for rowing along as well as perfect for laying back docked in the middle of the water to soak up the sun. The seat straps on the bottom snugly tighten to the existing wooden planks that we have for seats. We are so happy with this purchase, its makes canoeing a luxury with these seats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tsizzle from Love this Seat! I have been looking for a "stadium seat" to watch my daughter's 2 hour long softball games as well as my son's 2+ hour football games. I tried the seat cushions, which were of no use. I bought the "High School booster club" version of this seat, but there was no comfort. Finally I found this chair. It is great to strap on to the stadium stands, sit back, relax, and enjoy the game. I have back problems, and sitting upright for 2 hours was quite painful. With it's super cushion seat and metal bars for support, I am quite comfortable at the games. I recommend this to all families who must spend time on the "bleachers" I find it durable, and comfortable. A great buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MaineAngler78 from Also works very well in a sit-inside kayak I originally bought this seat to use in my old aluminum canoe, and it works very well in it. Before I got it, I thought I might try to find a way to install it in my sit-inside fishing kayak. Well it turns out, all you need to do is set it on the seat-no fancy modifications or anything. I think it may work in many sit-inside kayaks. I have a YouTube link that shows a short review on the seat (I also have other fishing and kayaking videos on my channel "Maine Angler") Definitely worth buying!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Mountaindogmom from 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 5 out of 5 by BustersMom from Transformed my canoe into comfort! This seat completely changed my canoe experience. I am now able to canoe for extended periods of time because my back and seat are now comfortable. I wish I had ordered it years ago. We have an old Alumacraft 17' canoe and the seat fits fine in both the front and back. This seat has made my old canoe into a new, pleasurable experience!

Rated 5 out of 5 by OccasionalPaddler from 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 Pnee from It works 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.
