Any Experience with Saddlemen Seats?

I'm seeing Saddlemen pop up quite a bit on ebay for a KLR seat. I dumped a Corbin last year to go back to stock. I slid around all over the place in that Corbin. No grip to it. However, I did find it comfortable. I've been toying around with a new seat and see that the Saddlemen looks like it would grip. Also hear great things about Sargent. For $300+ I think I deserve comfort and grip. Thoughts?

I have the Sargent. Only a small comfort increase over stock. I would like to try a Russell Day-Long myself.

I just looked it up on their website. That thing looks comfortable. Costs as much as a Lazy Boy Recliner. It does look quite good.

I had one of the Gel seats and loved it.. With it, and a sheep skin it was all day comfortable.

I don't know anything about the new seat, though..

Sorry to hear about your Corbin, I've had a Corbin for about six-weeks and like the secure feeling as opposed to the OEM seat, and like the fact that I can have a better footprint on the ground. Good luck with a new seat!
