    Awesome. rating
    I do a lot of fishing out of my canoe. This means that I spend a good amount of time anchored in one spot. Sometimes for 5-8 hours on end, only moving occasionally to get back on top of the fish that are being targeted. There is no possible way I could spend this much time in my canoe without the all day comfort of the SitBacker. The 2 inch cushioned seat is easy on the rear end, and the SitBacker's steel frame provides the strongest, most adjustable support I have ever found in a canoe chair - and I've tried them all. Compatible in most canoes with bench seats, this chair attaches with two nylon straps and user friendly buckles. This attachment system also allows it to be used on a picnic table or bleachers at a ball game. Sometimes (when the fish aren't biting so well) I like to ease the seat all the way back, kick my feet up on the gunwales, and just chill.
