Tempress Hi-Back All-Weather Camo Seats
Second Time Around
I have been canoe fishing for many years now and have tried many different approaches to reduce "butt fatigue" on those long floats that I typically do. A couple of years ago I modified my Old Towne 119 Discovery by getting rid of the factory seat and installing the Tempress seat set up. One of the best modifications that I've ever made to any river ride.
My son liked it so much that he asked me to complete the same mods to his 119 solo canoe.
Both of us are extremely happy with this purchase and the difference its made in our enjoyment of river fishing. Highly recommend this product.

good quality seats
These seats are well made with plenty of padding. They give good back support and are relativly light in weight. They also come with stainless steel bolts which are not affected by salt water. The only thing that I can say against their design is that they do not have a backrest tie down which allows the back of the seat to flip up when trailering. But still a great boat seat.

Don't last long
I wonder if you can just buy the cover. The add says it may just outlast your boat. That is a complete lie. The cushions didn't last 3 years before they fell apart. I have had much cheaper cushions last much longer. If you buy this product, you need to keep the seats inside and out of the sun and weather when not in use. They should make that a main part of their sales pitch.

You can tell this is quality product.There's a reason why this is basically twice the price of the other fold down clam type seats.Stainless hinges and hardware are great touches.And I like that you can remove/replace the cover and pad if needed.Nice.
The only thing I can complain about is the install of the screws.They come with a wax type coating on the threads to keep them from backing out.I can appreciate that,but the screws bind about half way.I had to remove most of the wax to get them to go in all the way.In no way a deal breaker,just an inconvenience.
