I quite clearly stated that I "read" about it in a review - was just wondering if other people had any experience of them.

If I had the actual experience of sitting on them I would have stated "I sat on them" - simple really......

In my opinion the seats are the dogs danglys.

The back rests are slightly different to the others, however when standing they form great leaning posts.

What do you think Dave (Wavlength)?

Spot on - comfortable & when standing they offer a comfortable backrest. With the half round grip at the back they offer a great handhold for two people to stand behind each seat as well.

The review complained saying there was a lack a padding which made them uncomfortable - MAYBE Humber increased the padding or changed the density of the foam.

It DOES happen you know - a review points out a fault and the manufacturers correct the problem.....

Don't take any notice Jono, the seats look mint, codprawn's just jealous because he cannot fit them in his little tub!
