Gear Guide 2012: Wenonah Super Seat Canoe Chair

Keep your butt happy on long canoeing trips with this add-on seat.

Arm fatigue isn’t the hardest part of extended canoeing trips; it’s a sore back that’ll get you. Wenonah solves that with its Super Seat, a downsized Crazy Creek-like chair that securely fastens to either bench or bucket seats to support and cushion your back and butt. Adjustable side straps let you change its recline for that stern-position snooze when your partner isn’t looking. Bonus: On dry land it doubles as a comfy fireside camp chair. $40; 1 lb. 6 oz., wenonah.com
