The Skwoosh Voyager kayak seat back system is a lightweight and comfortable gel kayak seat. Designed for fishing use with nearly any sit on top kayak, the Voyager offers a new set of possibilities with dual insulated bottle holders and a detachable travel pack to hold your cell phone, keys, fishing gear and more. The Voyager kayak seat is perfectly engineered with patented TekPad® pressure relieving gel to reduce fatigue on long duration kayaking adventures and to provide ultimate comfort for kayak fisherman.
When I first looked at the Voyager seat back system, I immediately realized that it was based on their Classic Paddling Cushion. Since I had already demoed that cushion a few days prior, I knew it would take about 15 minutes for the gel to fully adjust to my body shape. Once the seat pad had molded to my body, I was able to really test out the Voyager. As the paddling trip neared the two hour mark, I immediately noticed a more comfortable lower back and less fatigue. The seat felt like it was tailored specifically for my body and properly supported all the areas that are constantly strained while paddling.
Since the Voyager was designed with kayak fisherman in mind, I figured this was an opportunity to give my new lures a try. After nearly two hours without much luck, I decided that it was time to cut my losses and paddle home. Although I didn’t catch any trophy fish, the Voyager’s performance was a prize of its own. When I made it back to shore, I immediately noticed that I didn’t feel like I had been kayaking and fishing for the last five hours. It felt more like I had just returned from my favorite chair at the end of the dock, leisurely jigging for bass in the weeds.
I also enjoyed the detachable “fanny” pack that features two water bottle holders. I like to put one bottle in the freezer before I go paddling, so when it’s time to drink it’s still ice cold. The compartments have plenty of room for your cell phone, keys, and anything else you want to keep safe and dry. Plus, the adjustable waist belt is very comfortable, and the design allows for you to carry it like a sling pack over your shoulder. This is pretty handy when you’re stopping on shore for a quick lunch or to get out and stretch your body. It also makes a great place to store your case of fishing tackle.
I rate my review of the Skwoosh Voyager seat back system as 5 out of 5 stars. The Voyager offers amazing comfort and is far superior to any stock kayak seat pad that I’ve used. After the initial 15 minutes, the seat pad has formed to your body shape to provide ultimate comfort and support for your kayak fishing adventures.
