The Outfitter Back Band is our most economical kayak backrest. If you are curious about the advantages of additional back support for your kayak, the Outfitter Back Band is an excellent introductory option. This back band comes without a bottom pad and is designed to provide basic lower back support, which not only makes it a great back fatigue reducer but also one of our best seating options for kayak surfing. In kayak surfing you want the seat to be flexible enough so you can lean back when weight transfer to the rear is needed but at the same time have the back support available when paddling out or waiting for a set. The Outfitter Back Band achieves both these goals simply and effectively. The very durable Outfitter Back Band expertly combines comfort and support in an affordable package.
