After many years, the backband on my NDK Romany Explorer is about to self-destruct. Any suggestions on a favored replacement?

  Lounge Band
  Posted by: Gromulus on Aug-25-13 7:01 PM (EST)
I really like the Immersion Research Lounge Band Back band and installed one this year in my Aquanaut after having one in my Nordkapp the past few years. About $60 on-line and can be installed various ways (as demonstrated on their website). I use the Pro straps.
 
 
  IR Lounge back band!

I did the same as the previous person. Both on my Aquanaut and on my Etain. Simply the best back band on the market.

Check it out on YouTube.

I love the IR lounge band, very adjustable and durable. The only down side is that the lounge band may ride a little higher than most "stock" bands, and it can interfere with your spray skirt if it (the spray skirt) rides low.
I put them on every boat I own.

Just another plug for IR. Most common retrofit I do to kayaks.

See you on the water,
