Really I am not joking.

It's to keep your wife from yelling at you to slow down! Seriously, mine will go to sleep on those 40 mile offshore runs now

You can get a pretty big one and I can see where the price would certainly be justified. The engine noise drowns out most complaints while running so you may have just given me a new storage idea for the bags once we reach or destination.

E-Sea-Riders are well worth the investment and made here in the USA!

Not just for the boat. Our ''bags'' get used at the beach, dockside parties, any type of outdoor entertainment, fireworks, concerts, etc.

Once you get one you will wonder how you lived without it for the boat.

gtchirs, We have the marine grade ones from Ocean-Tamer that we use on our Contender and they are amazing! We ordered 2 from their website about a year ago and we just got 2 more from them at an SKA tournament and we love them. We have used the cheep ones in the past but after a few trips they started falling apart molding and smelling really bad.

XV2PS, you wouldn't believe how comfortable they are. You can literally fall asleep in rough seas and even after them getting thrown around, blowing out of the boat, fish blood, and saltwater they still look and work great.

IMHO those bean bags are a real danger, lol. Once I sit on one on the ride out or back, I am soon drooling and out cold! Seriously though, dont worry about testing them. Invest in marine grade. Have a couple E-Sea Riders and they are simply the way to go. makes long trips to the canyons a great ride in a center console. Unfortunately I am usually driving while my crew sleeps on them, LOL!

E Sea Rider is my rec. Well worth the money and whoever sits in them will fall asleep for the long rides out guaranteed. Also just a quick spray off and your all set. Also the company itself is very helpful. Just my opinion though

tight lines

for center consoles, just toss on top of the T-top with bungie strap added, my wife puts hers in the bow while we are trolling if it's a little slow, just kick back and enjoy

Those that use the E-SeaRider Bag, what size and shape did you get and/or recommend. Thanks

Default Just got them in...

UPS just dropped off the Abaco Bags from alltackle. They look great and are very comfortable. We'll see how they hold up. Going on the boat this weekend.

Thanks again to everyone for their feedback.

We use the large teardrops from E-Searider and we throw them on the t-top when fishing.

Fatboy bean bag chair, there is nothing more comfortable and the canvas comes off so you can wash it. I got my on amazon. Well worth the money and takes a beating.

Another vote for E-Sea Rider's. I haven't experienced it but have heard some stories of people buying cheap stuff from walmart and the color bleaching out onto their boat.

we have used them all and the Ocean-Tamer Bean Bags are by far exceeded our expectations. I have 3 that are over 8 years old and look new and we use them on the boat, at the beach, cookouts, n such....You can use my Discount coupon code and receive a discount at checkout . Code BIGFISHIN saves you 10% and give it a try and you will not be dis-appointed.

You could contact Capt Woody Woods and see what he has on hand
