  Yup, I third that
  Posted by: Kocho on Dec-27-12 5:08 PM (EST)

I like having a backband for various reasons (keeps me in the seat when upside-down and in lumpy conditions, plus I do like having some support to lean my back against to stretch). But I don't use it while I'm paddling. I too don't touch it much if at all while paddling. I suppose, I like very little support under my thighs, which allows me to have a more straight-up position. With lots of support under my legs, I tend to slouch, thus relying more on back support. But fit is individual and depends on conditions (and conditioning, initially it is tough without it and it does take quite a seat time to get comfy with little or no support). I suppose a nice supportive back system is nice to have on long days ...
