Comfortable, but not sure about the durability
by Joseph M. (3 out of 5 stars)

This is fantastic for sporting events or venues with metal bench seats. I decided to put this down on my office chair after coming back from the Indy 500 in May and it has been great so far. But after almost 5 months, I noticed that the edges in the front are starting to cave in.

Now, this really isn't such a big deal if you only use this sparingly, or even as a fulltime seat cushion since the main area is still good. But it makes me leary to get the full mattress. I wanted to use this as a test to see if id like the mattress, and I think I would, but for over $2500 I don't want to have it wear like this on the edges! I hope there is edge support on the mattress version of the purple.

It wasn't comfortable, and beware of restocking fees
by Harry Potter Fangirl (2 out of 5 stars)

I sit all day at my computer and was looking for relief for my rear. I had great hopes for this based on the glowing reviews but it wasn't comfortable at all to me. The Sharper Image cushion that I've been using feels much better than this so I sent it back for a refund. I was shocked, however, to discover that I had to pay a hefty restocking fee, and the company (PT Supplies) was not at all willing to reduce or waive the fee. It was a hard lesson, but I learned to always check the return policy and restocking fee before buying a product.

it is really comfortable for the length of time I can sit on it. I can not believe no one has posted how incredibly toxic this pillow smells- it's insane!! The pillow emits fumes that are so strong that I can't sit on it but for a few minutes. You're sitting on it and it feels pretty good but after 5 minutes of breathing in this burning plastic odor, you have to get away from it, I am going to try to let it air out for a week but will return it if it doesn't get better. This can't be good for your health or the environment.

great replacement for worn down office chair padding!
by Lara Satori Harris (5 out of 5 stars)

There were some who said this cushion was too small for large cabooses, but I beg to differ. I have the most gigantic backside and this cushion fits perfectly into the divot my huge butt left in my home office chair. If I'd gotten the large cushion, it wouldn't fit right. This is perfection, and my earthshaking derriere is happy in repose again. I actually notice how comfortable I am, and I realize I'm sitting up straighter and with better posture. This is improving overall comfort, not just my sits!

Royal is cheaper and better than this.
by J. Englund (2 out of 5 stars)

I was expecting more comfort for this price. I'm 275lb but still have no padding on my rear. I've tried it flipped both ways (there's a dense side and a sparse side) and neither way felt that much better.

The Royal cushion, which I also have, is $25 less and WAY more supportive/comfortable.

Easily the best seat cushion I've ever had
by RedRoosta (5 out of 5 stars)

Let's start by saying I'm a heavy equipment operator at a gold mine. I drive haul trucks the size of 2 story buildings, and the dirt roads I drive on are bumpy to say the least. It's rough riding. The seats they have in those haul trucks have a little shock absorption but they get hard to sit on after 3 hours of a 12 hour shift.

At 3 hours my lower back begins to hurt. At 6 hours I'm constantly shifting around in my seat while sweating more than I'd like to. At 8 hours I've usually taken some mild pain medication to ease it up.

So I needed to find something that would help. And by golly I found the perfect remedy. This seat cushion. The first day I brought it to work I was waiting to see when the pain would come, 3 hours went by, then 8, then 12, and I was on my way home completely shocked. I had no back pain the entire shift, the cushion absorbed ALL the shock, the design is breathable so it kept my hind end from sweating like it used to, and so I tried it again the next shift, same results. Life at work just became that much more enjoyable.

I take it home and use it on my chair for the computer and I can sit for hours (even though you should probably stand up every hour, but i didn't even notice the need like I used to)

I bought one for my dad and brother, my brother has tried it out and was as shocked as I was, he works at a university in an office for 8 hours a day. He told me that it was amazing. My dad is on vacation so he hasn't been able to try it out.

I'd recommend this for everybody, I'd even hope they start making actual chairs with this material as the main cushion. You won't regret this at all. The material keeps its shape and works well.

So worth the Price!
by Gary Lee (5 out of 5 stars)

I have severe Piriformis pain, and have tried different pillows including Tempur-pedic. I have been showing everyone at my work the Purple mattress commercial (comedy is always a big seller to me!) and when one of the guys asked me to look up their site, I found this. I really debated over getting another pillow (there's 3 in my closet right now); mainly because of it's cost...$80 for a butt pillow! But considering the pain I'm always in, I decided to bite the bullet. I've had it now for about a week, and WOW, is it ever worth it! My hip pain can be at it's worst, and sitting for any extended time doesn't bother me at all. It compresses perfectly when sitting on it; the first time I sat on it, I thought (by the initial "feel" of it) that it'd be uncomfortable. Just LOOKING at it could make you think that. Trust me, it's not. After putting it in the included cover and sitting on it, the compression/push back is perfect. In fact, I was so impressed by the pillow that I decided to buy the mattress! (Still waiting on it's delivery...)

If you have any type of Sciatica or Piriformis pain, or general hip pain or problems, this pillow is worth it.

New airplane seats are hard as a brick.
by alice (5 out of 5 stars)

Recently I took a three hour trip on a major airline. The new seats were not only closer together, but had very little padding. It was like sitting on a brick for three hours. I just couldn't get comfortable, and other passengers around me were complaining, too. I decided that next time I would bring my own seat pad. So I did some research, and bought this pad. It is about one inch thick and made of some kind of gel in a funny waffle pattern. It comes with it's own cloth cover that has a zipper and a carrying handle. When I took my next plane trip of four hours, I brought it with me. It was easy to fit it in my carry on luggage, and take it out when I found my seat on the plane. What a difference this pad made! I was comfortable for the entire four hour trip. I will NEVER travel without the Portable Purple Pad again.

Can't take heat over 105 degrees
by Daniel W. Boren (1 out of 5 stars)
June 14, 2018

Look, this is simple, we were going to use this in my wife's car. Well, if it gets over 105 degrees and you sit on it, you will ruin it! They advise putting it in the shade/floor to keep it out of direct sunlight. We live in TEXAS and the cars get up to 130 degrees easily and quickly when parked in the sun. Which made this worthless!

Great cushion
by Dorothy S. Mall (5 out of 5 stars)
May 16, 2016

Amazing little cushion. It is firm but not hard. But the most amazing feature is how this large pad fits into the tiny little cover. Complete directions how to accomplish this feat. It gives wonderful support and cushioning and adds a little height. And it does not squish down when you sit on it. It will be around for a long time---which is a big plus. Well worth the money.
