AirVentUSA seatcovers?

Anyone out there try these AirVentUSA breathable Seat covers? They look pretty nifty!

I have one that I used on my last GoldWing. I really liked it. I may still use it on my Russell, but it is too soon to tell.

Any idea what size would be needed for the Wee? Also do you know if it adds an inch or so of height so I can stop looking for a V owner that wants to swap seats?

I have this one http://airventusa.com/concours-st1100.htm that I bought specifically for my old Concours. I kept it when I traded, and it works very nicely on the Strom. (I have a DL1K, but I traded seats with a 650 owner because of height issues).

This one doesn't have any vent holes, but it doesn't seem to overheat my ample hindquarters. It is VERY comfortable and I'd recommend it. I don't get soreness on the spots that suffer without it. Adds maybe half an inch of height when I'm sitting on it and stays in place when snugged in with the elastic cord that goes under the seat.

I liked mine better as it allowed more air to go under my rear. Kinda like beads to. My biggest complaint was the cord and managing it. Wouldn't be as big a deal on a Strom as the seat comes off so easily. On a Goldwing, if one of the ends came off of the rope and went under the seat, then you had to remove the seat to restring it. Kind of a pain.

Now the real question is, which provides better ventilation? AirVentUSA or Airhawk!

I could be wrong, but I don't think the AirHawk provides any ventilation at all. You sit on a cushion of air, but you blow it up. The air from the outside doesn't pass through the pad.
