The Crack of Dawn Spider Angler seat is by far the most comfortable that I've ever used. I've always preferred high back seats, and this one is the tallest yet. The pads are thick and provide excellent support, yet soft enough to not create sore or hot spots. This seat also adjusts more quickly and easily than any I've ever used while first setting up or switching kayaks or out on the water. I can sit on it comfortably for several hours at a stretch without. The storage pouch and rod holders are about the right size and work well without being too bulky - important to me because I carry a tackle bag right behind the seat. Despite it's large size, this seat is very lightweight. Finally, this seat dries very quickly due to the material it is made out of. So in summary...
Things I really like:
Things I don't like so much:
- Thick comfortable padding
- High backed seat
- Quick easy adjusting
- Functional behind-seat rod holders and pouch
- Dries quickly
-Minor, but the drink holder behind the seat seems to be a weird size - a bit too large and loose fitting for standard water bottles, but too small for some brands of sports drink bottles.
-Also not a big deal, but I'm not yet used to the Velcro loop-style attachments for the rear of the seat. I will soon just add brass clips so I don't have to use the Velcro every time I put the seat on and take it off.
