    Yep the last 3 I bought didn't have cushions, had to buy separate 19.99, or 27 something, depending on which 1 you buy.

    You could make something much better for a lot cheaper than that.

    CharlieRay, knee pads, seat cushion or platform. either way you're still putting pressure on your knees at some point in the hunt. I don't have bad knees but after a while even with knee pads it can get uncomfortable and trying to stand the whole time get old real quick too. The kick stand is probably your best bet. Have you ever thought about trying a Guidos Web? The whale tail on it was a game changer for me.

    I'll have to try and see what works best. I just bought a new Aero Hunter and really like it. A kickstand may be a good option for me.

    I saddle hunt in pants that I purchased as an operator and they work well. Knee pads are attached to your pants , not bulky, and adjustable. They can be removed as well. I have found that normal knee pad straps can become very irritating over long periods of time. These are basically strapless and I am fairly certain you can find all types of camo patterns in these pants. Probably around 60-70 bucks.

    You can find them on ebay. They make pair , gen 3, that if not needed, you can remove the knee pads. I think around 60 bucks.

    I have a pair of core4element pants with foam kneepad inserts you can add/remove as you like. They're super nice and definitely nice to have in the field. Alas they are warm weather pants and I don't wear them for deer hunting, but they are super nice for spring turkey and scouting.

    I think sitka makes a pair with built in kneepads as well, but milspec pants will probably do the same thing except a whole lot cheaper.

    I bought a pair of arc'teryx kneepads last year and they are (for me) the cats meow for kneepads. A little pricey but they are very low profile, super easy on/off, and don't slip/slide around like other kneepads. They are not as thick but the design helps alleviate pressure points and discomfort. If you don't mind spending a little extra money they are worth looking into.
