One of the most important pieces of equipment for the kayak angler is the seat. After all you are going to be sitting in it most of the time and you need to be comfortable to really enjoy kayak fishing. Surf to Summit has always had the highest quality seats available for kayak fishing starting with their GTS Elite series that has become the standard in comfort over the past four years. With it's high back for great support, thermo molded foam padding for comfort, accesories such as rod holders and backpacks, and it's made in the USA excellent quality and workmanship Surf to Summit has been the standard of excellence with the GTS series.
With features like that I figured there wasn't really room for improvement, but Surf to Summit's new GTS Expedition seat has taken the bar even higher. The Expedition is truly the Porsche of kayak fishing seats.
While maintaining the same high-back profile that offers fabulous support, the Expedition has completely redesigned contours and additional foam padding that make this seat even more comfortable and supportive than the GTS Elite. There are two models with different bottom portions - the standard seat has a larger bottom with maximum 'cushy for the tushee'. For kayaks with smaller seat wells there is the SB or Sport Bottom model which uses the same seat bottom as the GTS Sport model combined with the new design back.
Like the other GTS seats the back has connectors for the GTS interchangeable packs including the standard pack, dry bag pack, fishing bag pack which includes a pack and rod holders, water bottle pack, and hydration pack. The Expedition back also has a net mesh storage area with bungees to keep things in place.
While the GTS Expedition seat does come at a premium price, it's premium confort, quality and workmanship are worth every penny. For more information on the full line of SurfToSummit products line visit www.SurftoSummit.com.
