A hunting seat cushion makes the world of a difference if you want to stay in the woods for a longer period of time, especially if you have chronic pain like me.

The Best Seat Cushions for Hunting

Hunting Seat Cushion for Deer Stand Hunting is one of my favorite activities to get away from some of the pains in life. Unfortunately, I was in a car accident in 2015 and the chronic back pain from this follows me into the woods.

This put me on a quest to find the best cushion for tree stand seats and hunting chairs. The goal was to reduce back pain, which would hopefully allow me to sit in a tree stand or behind my blind for a longer period of time.

3 products really stood out for the following categories:

  • Overall Best Hunting Seat Cushion
  • Best Deer Tree Stand Seat Cushion
  • Best Turkey Hunting Cushion

Below is a summary of the three products, then I dive into each of these cushion options a little bit more.

Overall Best Hunting Seat Cushion

Hunt Comfort Fatboy Hunting Seat Cushion

If you suffer from back pain or want to sit out in the field for a very long time, the Hunt Comfort Fatboy is the best hunting seat cushion you can get.

First, this hunting seat cushion is wrapped in camouflage ComforTex fabric that is both waterproof and noise reductive. Underneath the fabric is both LiteCore and GelCore technology.

The LiteCore is a triple density foam that works to distribute your weight to eliminates any painful feeling that causes you to feel like you bottomed out in the cushion.

The GelCore at the center of the hunting seat cushion works with the LiteCore to provide a temperature-controlled core to the seat that provides long-lasting comfort.

This is a premium waterproof hunting seat cushion that has a several layer anti-fatigue comfort construction.

Things I Like:

  • Triple-layer LiteCore technology
  • GelCore center for added comfort
  • Waterproof & durable fabric
  • Silent fabric for stealth comfort

Things I Don’t Like:

  • It is a bigger, thick seat cushion so it may not be ideal for longer hikes to further back hunting spots.

Best Deer Tree Stand Seat Cushion

ALPS OutdoorZ Terrain Hunting Seat Cushion

Deer hunting season, especially up here in the midwest, gets cold and the ALPS OutdoorZ Terrain hunting tree stand seat cushion is a go-to seat cushion.

The cushion is built to be silent and add a significant three inches of foam cushion for a deer stand seat. It also has an easy handle with a buckle to easily attach it to your backpack, jacket, and your deer stand.

The cushion is reversible with hunting orange and camo fabric, perfect for deer hunting. There is also a Coyote brown option. The fabric is designed to be silent, durable, and waterproof for use in wet and snowy conditions.

Things I Like:

  • Waterproof
  • Lightweight
  • Reversible Hunting Orange & Camo
  • Made in USA

Things I Don’t Like:

  • Great for extending your time in your tree stand, but it is a solid foam piece so it can start to cause fatigue if you don’t stand once in awhile.

Best Turkey Hunting Cushion

Therm-A-SEAT Traditional Series Insulated Hunting Seat Cushion Pad

The Therm-A-Seat hunting seat cushion pad is the perfect turkey hunting seat cushion as it is lightweight, durable, and versatile.

When it comes to turkey hunting, you often aren’t sitting in one spot all the time. Sometimes you need to move to get closer to where you hear the Tom gobbling. Being lightweight, this turkey hunting seat pad can easily be clipped onto a belt, strap, or MOLLE loop.

This cushion for turkey hunting is made of waterproof foam that is virtually indestructible. It also has a decent R-value, providing good insulation if the ground is cold and helps to retain body heat.

Things I Like:

  • Very lightweight
  • Durable construction
  • Limited lifetime warranty

Things I Don’t Like:

  • Not as thick as the other two due to being a more versatile, carry-friendly option.
