Freebag® boat cushion incorporates a patented design and is a lightweight, multifunctional water repellant cushion / bag. The lightweight Freebag® has a coated textile outer shell that encases a removable inner bag made of nylon. The outer bag is machine washable in warm water. The inner bag can be rinsed in fresh water and then air-dried. The inner bag is filled with polypropylene beads that easily adjust to whatever shape you need (the beads are smaller than those in “bean bag” chairs, and are more conforming and more comfortable).
This helps Freebag® easily adapt to its different functions and is especially beneficial for sitting or lying in any area of the boat cockpit or deck on sailboats or powerboats, eliminating the discomfort of sharp angles and projections. The bag is easily stowed with minimal weight and space requirements.
Freebag® was developed by Norwegian yachtsmen as a Multi Purpose Boat Cushion for increased comfort and endurance on long voyages, ocean races and in rough seas. Freebag® can be used as a cushion, bag with a carrying strap, or as a portable or stool. Cushion – This “anywhere” cushion can ease your body from fatigue. Use it for outdoor concerts and picnics; usable as a shapeable (and warm) stadium cushion or to soften a hard boat deck, or even a pile of rocks. Use the Freebag® as a pillow or additional lumbar support for any chair. You can use it as a sun-lounger or as a travel cushion. The insulating properties can help keep you warmer or cooler. Stool – Collapsible, soft, and portable – Use Freebag® as a stool at the helm or while watching a parade or waiting in line.
It’s easy to carry by the shoulder strap and weighs only 2 kg. Shoulder bag – open the zipper of the outer bag and add your belongings. Inside the Freebag® outer bag, there is room for the inner bag (which contains the beads) and personal cargo.
