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.
Dimensions (approximate): Laid out flat: approximately 39″ Long, and a plush and comfortable 3″ Thick. It’s amazing it only weighs 2 kg! Referring to seat-type use: seat bottom is 15″ wide, at the bend (lower back) it is 11″ wide, and the upper back is 14″ wide. As a soft, comfortable stool: approximately 16″ High with a 9″ Diameter soft top (seat). It floats, too which is great if it goes overboard! (Not approved as PFD)
The ideal tool for your next project! Make use of a Freebag PRO the next time you're on your knees recaulking the teak deck or have your head and shoulders wedged between two stringers as you clean out the bilge under the engine tray. Once you're using one you'll wonder how you managed without it.

We cannot predict the cost to ship hazardous materials outside of UK. If your purchase includes a gas inflating lifejacket we can send it overseas only by first removing the gas bottle.

We cannot send other hazardous goods including liferafts, paint and antifouling overseas without first getting a special delivery quotation. After all these hurdles we put up, please do not be alarmed - if you need a liferaft delivered to the Baltic, the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, simply contact us for a quote. You can be confident our delivered price will still be better than local sourcing.
