The Reggie Forward Adjust Backband is a direct replacement for most modern boats with backband adjustments on the thigh braces. Featuring our patented adjustable, no slip ratchet technology, the Reggie Foreward Adjust Backband is constructed of plastic with a foam insert covered with neoprene that is both soft and abrasion resistant. Corrosion resistant stainless steel hardware makes the Reggie suitable for use in salt water. The low profile design nestles perfectly into the small of your back top provide excellent support while allowing quick access to gear stored behind your seat. It is NOT recommended to use this in boats that were not originally designed as forward-adjust system. In many cases, the thigh braces in these boats were not designed to withstand the pressure applied to a backband.
