Yakpads Paddle Saddle w/ High Backrest ReviewThe Yakpads Paddle Saddle with High Backrest is the perfect seat pad for the standard plastic seat in your sit inside kayak. The High Backrest Paddle Saddle features a memory gel-filling which distributes the paddler’s weight evenly, resulting in a reduced pressure point for both your butt and your entire back. The Paddle Saddle with High Backrest also insulates your bottom and back from cold temperatures, allowing you to increase the length of your kayaking season well into the late fall.

No matter what type of kayaking you do, you can’t go wrong with a Yakpads Paddle Saddle with High Backrest seat pad!

    This is one of the best backrest pieces I’ve ever used. Yakpads makes good products and definitely designs its materials well.
