The standard Outfitter kayak seat was the first of this series to be developed to fill the need for a good performing back support while providing a great value for the money. The Outfitter series kayak seats are the strongest longest lasting kayak seats in the S2S range. This seat series was originally designed for rental and instructional kayak programs. With that in mine our quest was to make a kayak seat that could withstand the use and abuse typical of a commercial kayak fleet. The seat is compression moulded and baked, thereby permanently bonding the fabric to the foam. This process makes our kayak seats last considerably longer that any cut and sewn kayak seat. This lacing, as we call it, helps lock the moulded foam face of the kayak seat to the heavy duty PVC plastic reinforcement back. This flexible back is the part that gives the paddler all the structure and support. This insures that the seat will probably last longer than your kayak.
