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

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.

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

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.

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