Most Helpful Customer Reviews
If you only need a floatation device to make the coast guard happy then, by all means, get these. I, however, returned them because they didn't strike me as durable enough for my needs. I will be taking them out on a skiff in a lake while doing research (a lot of research and riding around) and they didn't seem like they'd last long. Plus, the foam inside is just 5-6 thin squares stacked on each other...really moves around.
I returned these cushions due to less quality than I expected. While the cushions fill a Coast Guard requirement I don't feel that would be adequate in a real emergency and only partially adequate for day-to-day use as a cushion. While the material and fill seem OK, the straps are poorly attached, in my opinion, with just the barest of stitching to the cushion itself. I honestly think one good jerk on the strap would pull it from the material. Hopefully, I'll never need to use a cushion as a life-saving device, but if I do, it will be durable, well-made, and probably a lot more expensive than these. On the plus side, the vendor was very quick to provide return instructions and authorization...so kudos to them for that.
Works as a boat cushion. Much more comfortable than sitting on metal all day. I like that the inside is layers of foam as opposed to a single layer. Others have complained about this, but it makes the cushion much more flexible than if it were a single two inch thick piece of foam. There are small holes on the sides that allow it to dry out much quicker should it get wet. Construction seems to be fairly good quality.
