SoftSeat Options

There are 5 options to consider before ordering your SoftSeat: Base Thickness, Lumbar, Anchor, Pilot Cutout, and Color. These options, explained below, will help you choose right SoftSeat for your needs. For general use, we recommend our Standard SoftSeat Portable Cushion Base/Lumbar Combo which is available in 3 thicknesses. Once you have decided, continue to the ordering page.

1 - Base Thickness Options:

SoftSeat base thickness options

The SoftSeat base is available in 3 thicknesses: 1/2", 1", and 2" thick. The 1" cushion base is the standard recommended thickness for most applications. The 1/2" thick base is used where there is limited headroom such as in the cockpit of some aircraft. The 2" cushion base raises the occupant in situations where the existing seat is too low. All 3 base sizes offer the same long-duration seating comfort and benefits.

2 - Lumbar Options

Standard Lumbar Support

Standard Lumbar Support: Lumbar Support zippers to any thickness Cushion Base. The Standard lumbar support is included with our Cushion Base/Lumbar Combo packages.

Full Cushion Back

Full Cushion Back: Moves occupant forward and features an adjustable lumbar support. Back zippers to any thickness SoftSeat base. Sewn-in adjustable straps with side release buckles allow the back to be secured to the seat. Full back measures 21" high, 16 1/2" wide, and is 2" thick. This back is not available with base/lumbar combo packages and must be ordered separately.

3 - Base Anchor Options:

Non-skid strips anchor

Non-Skid Strips Anchor: Our most popular option. Two strips of strapping with non-skid rubber are hand sewn to the bottom of the cushion base. These non-skid strips help prevent the cushion base from sliding around on smooth seats.

Straps Anchor

Straps Anchor: A good option if you will always be using your cushion on the same seat. Adjustable straps are hand sewn to the bottom of the cushion and secure with an adjustable buckle and two hook-and-loop fasteners. The Straps Anchor option is not available with Pilot SoftSeat Cutout Cushion Base. See cutout options below.

4 - Cutout Options:

Cushion base without cutout

No Cutout: This is the standard SoftSeat cushion base configuration.

Cushion base with pilot cutout

Cushion base with Pilot Cutout: We call it the Pilot SoftSeat Cushion Base. Special cutout is designed to accommodate aircraft controls and restraint systems. Cushion bases with pilot cutouts have proven themselves effective in both airplanes and helicopters.

5 - Color Options:
