I live in Arizona and use this product everyday.
Unless I turn off the radio, AC, and listen to the fan I havent figured out a way to know whether whether it is blowing in "high" or "low".
I think that some of the holes are blocked when I sit down by my wallet or just my weight which was a negative.
I also thought it didnt blow air out hard enough to make a difference at first.
However, after using for a few days I can tell a difference. I dont sweat almost at all on my dress shirts because of the leather. So it has made a difference.
I will note though I also bought a sunshield specifically made for my truck which has made a huge difference so this is just specifically for my back and butt at this point.
I will also note it has not been near as hot yet as it will be this Summer. Will review again when it gets hotter if reminded.
I like the way this thing cools, but down here in Florida, we wear shorts all of the time, and this seat feels like sandpaper on your legs. Also, it raises me so high in the car that even with the seat at the lowest level, my hair touched the ceiling.
I am a truck driver and I use the Cooling Air Seat in my truck. The Cooling Air Seat fits very well on my truck seat and I love how it transfers the air conditioned air in the cab directly to my back and inner thigh area. The sensation of air flow isnt so apparent which is a good thing. Instead, I have the feeling of sitting on a soothing/cooling pad - but without having any moisture involved. Its awesome.
i like the product,and it s useful.
this item is very,very useful
We bought 2 of these to use in our RV while driving from place to place in the summer. What a difference they make to our comfort level! The cab seats are not great on their own, but adding these not only gets bare skin (when wearing shorts) off the sticky leather, but also provides a nice cooling breeze. Weve also used them in rental cars with black fabric upholstery, and noticed that we feel much cooler than without them.
Not as good as it sounds
I do not use the seat at all, it is too hard to set on. Hurts.
Overall great product
My air conditioning went out in my car and I could not afford to fix it. In hot Iowa weather, so far this has been a great product. It makes a huge different in cooling, especially on my black leather seats and black interior. The only con is that it is a little hard when sitting on it and it is over an inch thick so it will prop you up about an inch in your seat. For anyone that gets hot in their car or does not like "swamp butt", this is an great product. I would highly recommend it.
Added too much rise to the seat.
Im not able to use the product. Its too bulky. I would not recommend it for seats that dont lower enough to make it usable.
Gets the job done
I like that it raises me up an inch or so. It fits well in the seat of Mercedes GLK 350. It doesnt fit so well the bigger seat of the Nissan Murano cabriolet.nevertheless it keeps me cool no matter which car it it is in.
Definite male product
While wearing shorts or skirt, the material used is not comfortable to sit on. It was scrachy on the bare skin. My husband, with longer shorts and long pants was OK with that. Coils on the seat were annoying for a longer drive for me. Again, my husband was OK with that as well. But it does cool and keep my back dry in the heat.
Id give it about 7 out of 10.
OK, but a bit uncomfortable for long periods.
At first glance and first use, it was rather uncomfortable. But the cooling qualities made that palatable. We havent tried it for long distances yet, and that will be the test.
Works for me.................
Getting in and out of the car all day, keeps me from sweating so much. I would buy it again.
Much to my amazement this seat cover does help keep me cool during hot weather. Granted its not ice cold (which I would love) but it does blow cool air on my lower back and thighs (you need to run the vehicles AC for the air to be cool). I wouldnt mind if the fan were more powerful but it does help keep me cooler as is.
Cooling car seat.
Use in our pickup and RV.
Compensates for our temperature comfort levels.
A cooling car seat
This was a git for my wife. She loves it, it stops the sweaty back with a cooling breeze.Very easy to install, well made, it keeps its shape with out collapsing when you sit on it.
Works as advertised!
I really put this device to work every day. I drive 70 miles each way to work in the Florida sun. The cooling seat really helps to keep me comfortable the whole way! A great investment.
I wish the fan was slightly more powerful to push more cool air up the back, but the improvements as-is are very nice!
After one time use, the fan on the
Seat stopped working. Waiting for a replacement... Hope this time it last.
I use this product on my school bus that has no air conditioning. It does not blow cold air, but the air that circulates behind my back is enough to really help me feel more comfortable.
Returned product after it failed cool anything off. It was also uncomfortable to sit on
Small and Uncomfortable
Too small to fit most of todays car seats. Uncomfortable because it does not rest in the seat correctly. The controls are under your right legs which make them difficult to adjust.
You can keep your COOL with this seat!
Ive lived in Arizona for 12 years and have hated every summer - until now. This seat has totally changed my opinion of the dry, desert heat. I love getting into my car, starting to drive, and turning on my Cooling Seat! The circulating air totally envelopes me in a cooling breeze - so much that I can actually turn my A/C down a bit. Now I have no need to purchase a high-end luxury car with air cooled seats. Ill keep my car for many more years.
Although this works, I found it made my comfort a little stiff. I am torn, like the cooling, just not comfortable in my seat.
Maybe I will save for the super hot days, or maybe just return it. If I had a bench seat in the car, I think this would work better.
This was a birthday present for my husband. He travels alot and the seats get really hot here. The car seat was a bit too small for his car but he is using it anyway and says that it kept his back and legs cool.
I tried it in my car and again the strap that goes around the seat is a bit too short and I am practically sitting on the fan. BUT it does keep me cool!
Works well - could be more comfortable.
The seats for our new car were leather, and not breathable, hence they got very hot. I was looking for something that would make the seat breathable, and found this actually cools it itself! Its pretty loud, the fan is bulky and right between your legs, and the tubes make it less than optimally comfortable. But it succeeded in make it cooler to drive, and we turn it on when its really hot outside. It was the best solution I found, but not the best possible product in terms of its features. Maybe you should be able to remove the fan, maybe it was more comfortable, but since it was the best I found and we are using it, I would say get it unless you find something better!
Cooling car seat
Works well to circulate air in car on hot days. A little too hard and shifts too easily on car seat.
Because I travel a lot and have leather seats in my car, my seats get hot and uncomfortable at times. On long trips or hot days, I love using my Cooling Car Seat. It makes my ride so much more enjoyable. Great product!
Great cooling seat
I love this product it feels like an extra air conditioning vent in my seat. In this hot muggy Florida weather....its exactly what I need.
Great product for price
Great for hot summers when driving around all day.
Works well and is lightweight. My seats would not lower and the 1.5" that it lifted me almost put my head into the ceiling. I also wish the fan was a bit further from the seat cushion. But all of that aside, it kept me cool during my travels and I didnt have sweat on my shirt.
Im a believer
Living in Texas the cars and car seats get hot. This cooling seat works like a charm. I turn on the car and immediately turn on the cooling seat. I cant believe I didnt know about this sooner.
it actually works!
Used in my new car (last one had ac in the seats) and worked well.
A little stiff for me, but it is be cool or be uncomfortable.
Very surprised at the power and the effect.
I bought this car seat for my husband and it has made him very happy! We live in Arizona and drive a car with leather seats. In the summer my husband always places a towel on the seat, but by the time we get where were going his shirt and shorts are soaked with perspiration. Not only unsightly but very uncomfortable. This new seat cushion has solved the problem! Easy to install, and comfortable to sit on, highly recommend.
Husband found it uncomfortable. Adaptor didnt fit his car. Returning it.
In my work truck, during summer, used everyday. The bottom needs to be a little longer, as it has a tendency to slide down the seat. Other than that, Ive only had it for a week or two, so I hope it lasts.
good car seat but not for cadillac seat

ways to install
This really helps
These are a great help to me, because my car interior is black--the seats can become very hot when parking the car in the summer. Having these cooling seats helps in two ways: first, they are a lighter color, grey, which does not get as hot as black, and second, the fan is really very effective at cooling. In fact, the cooling sensation is a nice feature even after the seats have become cool; on long trips, the fan seems to be a sort of constant massage. Its a little noisy, but not annoyingly so.
Horribly uncomfortable. Want my money back
Did anyone actually try this?
Puts the cool where it helps.
In this hot, humid south Georgia summer heat it is pleasant, after an extended trip, to get out of your vehicle with your backside cool and dry
