We are on our last run until we take a few days off with the family.   Met a guy named Gary at the North Forty Truck Stop in Holladay, TN.  He had a cool looking seat.  The Prime 600. It had more buttons than usual...cooling, heating, tilting, all air out, shock type, height memory.  It sat up a little high for me but I see on Seat Specialists's website that you can order it with a low profile bracket that brings it down a few inches.  Hmmm...wish it came in blue and grey.  The headrest was really different, up down and in/out.  My wife didn't like where the headrest was for her, she kept leaning her head forward like it was bothering her.  Maybe some time in the seat and finding all the right settings would resolve that. 

I wonder what Santa will bring me this year.  Better be good!!

Happy Holidays to all!  Please leave us comments - we like to hear back from you!

Looking for the best truck seat on the market?  So are we.  We will be reviewing seats that we feel are note worthy and perhaps some that are not.  If there is one in particular you think we should look at, leave a comment!

There was a Sept 2013 article in Overdrive Magazine about some of the new seats that are out in the market today.  Take a look here to read the article:  Overdrive Truck Seat Review

They talk about the latest seats: Seats Inc Legacy, Knoedler NuChief and the Bose seat.  I attended the MATs show in Louisville in March 2013 and tried all of these seats out.  The Bose was pretty interesting if you have a spare $6k.  Didn't love the actual seat it self but the suspension technology was very cool.  Knoedler had the Chief but not the NuChief at MATS.  Going to have to dig into that a bit more in another post.  I liked the options on this seat - good adjustments nice craftsmanship - felt very solid.  My wife sat in the Knoedler seat for a while when I went to check out the KW booth.  She was still there relaxing when I came back.   Seats Inc was right around the corner and they had a lot of action at their booth.  I see these seats everywhere so wasn't too much of a new experience.  I did learn about the Legacy LO which would be better for me, I think.  

All the other players were there too.  National, Bostrom, ISRI, Qualitex, a few Prime seats here and there in other store-based booths.  I sat in the Gra-mag seats that were at KW, I think.  They were OK...the rep from KW that helped he didn't know what they were.  I snooped around a bit to look at the back of the suspension.  

This is all a bit of a recap now that I have this blog finally up and running.  Next post will be on a specific seat topic.  Submit your suggestions anytime and I'll do the research needed to get some answers.

You can read about our Quest on the dedicated page of our blog.  We have started out with a lot of internet searching.  All very helpful stuff to see the breadth of information out there.  There is one online company www.seat-specialists.com that had online reviews of seats which I found helpful.   They even had online chat so I tried that out a bit - she was nice and lots of good recommendations.  Searching for terms like "Truck seat" or "air seat" or "KW seat" bring up some good results for people selling or making the seat.  But what about the opinions of the millions of driver's out there?  I'm not seeing much.  Everyone sits in a seat...and complains about their seat...so let's hear it!  The good, the bad and the ugly!  Start commenting!


    I am a veteran truck driver for 16 years.  My wife and I travel the US and Canada in a KW W900.  We are focused on finding the best seats out there because we spend 60% of our day driving or sitting waiting for a load.  We are on a quest in 2014 to find the best seats for each of us.  They don't even have to match.
