The Granite Gear Stowaway Seat Packs attach under your canoe seat with two side-release buckles. Unlike thwart bags, they can be left in your canoe during portages. They are the perfect storage place for items you really want to keep accessible and out of the bilge water. A rigid plastic bottom keeps the bag from sagging when it is heavily loaded, and can be removed to double as a cutting or fillet board.

Fantastic under-seat storage, couldn't go without these!I've got 4 of these—two of the padded (smoke blue) variety, and two of the "original" (sage) model. Granite Gear's build quality is second to none.,,,,I put padded stadium seats on my canoe seats for comfort (especially on long paddling/heavy drinking days) and these seat packs strap in perfectly underneath and hold a LOT of storage. I can fit a drybox, rope, gloves, tools and a lunch in there with room to spare for sunscreen. It sure is nice to keep all that stuff from rolling around in my canoe!,,,,I'm not as big a fan of the padded seats and use them as spares. I don't need the extra padding, as the aforementioned stadium seats are quite adequate. Also, the straps on the padded model don't work quite as nice with the stadium seats, cinching the bag too much and cutting into storage capacity and zipper function.,,,,NONE of these models are waterproof, but the material does dry very quickly. Keep that in mind, and throw critical items in a dry box/bag and you'll be fine.
