I've no experience with Scotseats but I've got Ullman's and I think they are brilliant.

Regardless of which seat, I think getting the seating position sorted out so you can get the maximum benefit out of the seats is key.

Boys boat has scotseats, don't think much in them tbh having sat in them both (only tried Scots in anger though)

His is away just now getting couple upgrades done, great company to deal with. He is getting the new cushion inserts put in, I don't know name of it. He did change from the narrow ones to wide ones but that is preference, harder to stand with the wide ones but much better to sit in.

We’ve got Ullman Biscayas. I like ‘em, the missus doesn’t. They are hard on the backside but easy on the back & neck. I’d echo what GuyC says, positioning is very important. There’s info on Ullman’s website re.positioning.

Depends on which scotseats too, some of them are a bit wide between the knees when you’re standing up

Whilst that is somewhat true, if you have the seats positioned correctly you can stand up on the wide seats.

If you want to stand and space is tight then get the narrower seats.

They really are a game changer on days out, lot of money but money well spent.
