Super comfortable and dynamically versatile. Made of water resistant 500 D cordura with waterproof non-slip rubberized nylon for ground facing side. Filled with ultralight foam beads that will not crush and are silent. Brand new fill to the market in these bags.

Ultralight at about 8 ounces and replaces a couple pounds of other gear.

Sitting pad for glassing.
Pillow for sleeping.
Rear bag for shooting.
Support bag for positional shooting.

Any comments or changes before I launch these for sale? Now is the chance!

7x7x6 folded 7x14x3 flat

I will probably make a larger sized one, but this is about the smallest size I think that balances weight to usefulness for backcountry. I will never pack, camp or hunt without it ever again.

For day excursions from the truck, a Cadillac sized version would be nice, and wouldn't weigh much more. Maybe 8x9x3 and 9x16x3 flat. Just make the cushion a little deeper for seating and add a little width so it is 2" bigger all around.

I use this 12x12 glassing pad now but this definitely looks more fictional at multiple tasks and at basically the same wieght. Double win. Great idea

May try one out when you have them made up. What were you thinking on price?

I'll comment if I come up with any suggestions to improve it. Thanks!

Comfy on the rear cheeks and the face cheeks! Just don't fart on it and expect to enjoy sleeping on it too, lol.

Spex-Lite 5524B, I have been playing with it since it was first marketed in 2019. It is a closed cell foam, and doesn't compress over time like the old white beads.

Interesting. How does it work as a rear bag in the prone?
Folded up, it is a cube for higher rear support. If I needed lower, I flatten it out and grab a corner for elevation.

I can get some pics later this week.
