    I've been using one for the last 6 months- very comfortable in hot and cold conditions. The lady on the phone was very helpful and added an extra strap on the "nose" end, shipping was unreal- mine arrived the day after I placed my order.
    Would recommend one to anybody.
    Cheers,

    Somehow, I don't see you on a scooter.

    Thumbs up

    I've had one for several years now. It does add extra time in the saddle. Now if I could only figure something out for my knee...

    While you are at it get one of the helmet hitches from them. Best way to store a helmet I've found.

    I got mine in Gillette as a reward for getting there! On my small budget, I could afford (last years model).
    I wouldn't want to ride without it anymore.

    The people at Alaska Leather are wonderful, and the product is exactly as advertised. Their pad won't raise your sitting level in any significant way. I didn't find it noticeable.

    That said, their buttpad didn't do much for me. It bought me another hour or so in the saddle. I didn't really get long riding (4+ hours) relief until I got beads from Beadrider. Beadrider will raise your sitting level by around a quarter to a half inch. If memory serves, both a Beadrider and an Alaska Buttpad are around $50.

    Use it all the time! Transferred it from my CLc to my C bike. Keeps you dry in the summer and warmer in the winter. It's so worth the money
