Santa's Stolen Christmas List

Don't tell Santa, but we have an elf working on the inside that leaked a copy of Santa's personal Christmas list. Turns out he's a really big paddler when it's not his busy season... who knew?! Please don't tell him we showed you though, that's grounds to be put on the naughty list. Check out what the big man himself is hoping for this holiday season!

3. YakPad Paddle Saddle with Low Backrest

by Cascade Creek Company

Santa's Review:

"Started using this on the sleigh in '04. Without it, I wouldn't make it more than three hours on that rigid sleigh bench."​

Why's it on the list?

Yakpads gel seats are designed to increase the seat comfort of any kayak or canoe by incorporating an elastomer gel (same is as used in bicycle saddles) into the cushioning which virtually eliminate potential pressure points.
