TRYING TO FIND A NEW SEAT FOR MY CURRENT DESIGN BREEZE.NOT HAVING ANY LUCK.WOULD LIKE TO FIND A WILDERNESS SYSTEM SEAT PHASE 3, WOULD IT FIT IN MY BREEZE? REAL COMFY SEAT
How about ExtraSport?
You can get the ExtraSport XtraComfort seat for $171 from hhttp://www.kayakproshop.com/Extra_Seat.html
This seat is used in many Old Town kayaks. It compares favorably to the Phase 3. I recommend trying it out before you buy it, given the price.
I would also consider getting a carved foam seat—cheaper, simpler, and possibly more comfortable than the ExtraSport.
thanks for the info!

Best carved seat
if you don’t want to do it yourself might be from a wooden kayak builder. They have the skill to make you a custom seat. The challenge is the back. If you want a backband, that’s easy. If you don’t want a backband you have to find some other way to rig up a back support with a carved seat.
I recently made a sit-in seat out of a sit-in-top seat. I added about 2" of padding under it, and then a wedge at the front for leg support. I reversed the seat so that the longer part became the seat bottom and the short part became the back.
To my knowledge there really is no excellent after-market seat, but if you search this forum you will find some suggestions.
W/S does not sell the Phase 3 seats.
They’ll only sell replacements for W/S boats - up to an including providing the serial number for the boat that you’re replacing the seat in.
NC Kayaks sells seats.
At respectable prices - they look nice and comfty.
redfishkayak IS a wooden kayak
builder, and based on reports of buyers, they can make you a good seat, fitted to your hull (from template you provide), and with a good back support. They have been doing custom foam seats for some time.
i need a new seat too…
…mine has gotten lots bigger in the last few years.
My only point was that a wooden kayak builder can carve you a seat IN PERSON, with you right there to try it 50 times while making minute adjustments. Redfish is a mail-order seat, sort of risky. Looks good and the reviews are good, though.
We make a nice one as well.
We can tailor the layup from racing to rolling.
Several options for mounting.
