You may not like this suggestion but I thought the RANS Seat was too bulky and so I bought 1/2" (or
it may have been 5/8") thick dense camping pad material and used the original RANS low density foam
as a template to cut out two pieces of camping pad material. I used them both to double up the
thickness and placed it directly on the plastic molded bottom of the RANS seat. It isn't as soft as
the RANS foam but my seatback is on an incline and so my bottom only feels about 70% of my weight.
The added benefit is that when it rains, the camping pad material does not soak up the water and
so...no drying necessary. It's ready to go the next day when the sun is out !
Not sure if you can see the way it looks but believe my photos on my website reflect the camping pad
material in place of the foam. The foam pad is in my closet in case I ever want to put it back on.
So far, I have been happy with the camping pad material and have had it that way for about 3 years.
