These seats have met or exceeded my expectations so far - I wanted a comfortable, ergonomic seat that I could also use without the cushions when in very wet conditions (these are on a kayak,) and I like that these seats are very comfortable even without the cushions, and the drain holes keep it dry and help keep it cool. The cushions themselves are not the best in the world (relatively thin, and uncoated foam so they hold water, although they are easy to remove and squeeze out,) and if you buy the recommended 1 1/4" screws to install the seat to a swivel, the back ones will be way too long and poke through into the cushion and/or your rear. I recommend 3/4" screws for the rear, or you can use washers like I did to space an easier to find 1" screw. Overall, these seats are expensive, but they do have features not found much elsewhere and I am pleased to this point. Time will tell how durable they are in the long run.
