I have 2 NRS Kayak Back Bands…

Submitted by: pugetsoundkayaker on 5/7/2020
I have 2 NRS Kayak Back Bands installed on both of my kayaks, a Seda Gypsy and a Seda Swift. The NRS back band is constructed well. It is made from quality materials and seems to hold up over time with regular use, and against the elements. The foam cushion is comfortable. The straps and buckles are strong. It does not come with installation instructions. This is understood as kayak seats can vary quite a bit from kayak to kayak, but it also makes installation a lengthier process than one might expect. It does comes with anchoring straps for the rear, but my boats require bungee shock chord anchors due to their construction which needs to be purchased separately if you do not have any extra lying around. The seat back is comfortable enough for me, but I wish it was a little taller in height. Taller individuals might find that it doesn't provide enough support. All things considered, I'm really happy with the NRS Back Band (enough to purchase it twice) and would recommend it to others.
