Anyone have mastercraft or other suspension seats ?

I saw these on TV they looked interesting.

The seat is made like a hammock which give it a suspension.

Own them personaly.. no.. ridden in many of them.. yes. Mastercraft, Beard, PRP, you pretty much can't go wrong. They are expensive and require special mounting hardware. Not to mention in a daily driven vehicle they are inpractical because of the high sides, they make it difficult to get in and out.. but all the companies make some sort of street seat but they are not as comfortable as the others. Anywho, yea I'v sat in nearly every model those three companies offer.

Have a look at the Corbeau Baja seats. Very heavily padded and I'm thinking of them because of my spinal arthritis issues.

Are they a suspension seat or are they just thick padding ? Does it really make a difference ?

Mongo thick padding on the Corbeau and the two designs are different -- but which is really better you'll have to decide. I suspect that one type or another is better for one person, but not another.

Here's a pic:



These are NOT adjustable back. Most offroad design seats don't have adjustable backs and those models that have them are more expensive.

Edit: The Baja seat IS a suspension seat AND it's got thick padding.

Right the mastercraft suspension seat with the adjustable back is big money compared to the other ones they make.

Is that baja seat the Corbeau ? That seems like the better idea suspension plus thick padding. The mastercraft doesn't look like the padding is very thick.
