Victor from CT, USA submitted this review on October 10th 2013 at 03:38 AM. Victor is an end user who has six months to a year of experience with the product.
Strengths:zero maintenance
breathable
very easy to clean, cleaning instructions are clear
Weaknesses:the cushion cover (standard polyester) is not snug, so it can slide around a little
the handle on the cover is "loose" - has too much slack

i weigh 140lbs and i think i "bottom out" the honeycomb (after broken-in), which can be very bad in the future.
Comments:i use a stiff seat pan. the honeycomb is stiff at first and needs to be broken-in by sitting on it. after sitting on it for several months, the area where my butt goes is very soft - i can depress the comb over an inch just by pressing on it. i have partial sensation and it gets slightly uncomfortable where the ends of my femurs are after several hours.

my durability rating is based on the comparison of the extremely broken-in comb (by my butt) compared to stiff comb (in between my legs).

i wonder if the non-XS version would have been better for me. i think i am going to try the contoured next, but at $350 a pop it is not cheap to try a cushion out.

overall, i think it is a good cushion and supracor has many supporters but it is not for me. i don't think my butt is extraordinarily bony and i am not heavy. not all butts are the same, but suggested user weights would be nice to see before biting the bullet on a purchase.
