We have had one aboard WJ for 5 seasons and SWMBO and i fight over it. It is not cheap, but it has not faded, failed, ripped, or gotten saggy. It is perfect in the cockpit, on top of the cabin, on the foredeck...
Armrests just get in the way unless it is a dedicated helm seat, like gary's- brilliant idea, btw.
Have one of those that was 'regifted' to us via the recycle bin at our marina ... must be several years old as it's now been aboard for 2 ... the irish setter's favorite spot laying over the lazerette ... and I can attest to what BL said ...

West Marine had a similar model tho' somewhat larger thicker and more comfortable 2 years ago ... they were running a '2 for' sale in January and happened to stop by and found they had stocked the sale bin incorrectly with that model (retail price then was about $100) at 2 for $79 ...

They have been decorating the cockpit of the Cal nicely now as well ...
