Customer Reviews:

  • leaks!
    What a disappointment. I followed instructions and used as directed, but it has a slow leak. I submerged it underwater to search for a puncture, but could not even find the leak--that's how slow the leak is. I reinflated about every 2-3 days at first, then it would not even stay inflated for a full day, so I'm returning it. I wish I knew why it's leaking air, but maybe it's the entire product....more info
  • ...started out fine but...
    ...suddenly it deflates quickly.
    while it worked it was excellent. I have to locate the leak.
    Worked in the car (a few times) as well as home. I have had it for a month or so....more info
  • excellent product
    My husband loves the back booster. He takes it to his car and any air travel....more info
  • Good adjustable lumbar support for travel
    This product works well for travelers using rental cars or airlines. I gave it four as opposed to five stars because the adjustment process (blowing into a tube then trying it) is inherently a litte tedious. And over-inflating can be bad for your back as well.

    On the other hand, it stuffs into your carry-on/briefcase with no problem and works well once adjusted. So the ability to deflate it completely is also inherent to its value....more info
  • Saves my back
    I have suffered from backpain when sitting for 20 years. I have finally found something that I can take anywhere. I LOVE SITTING NOW!!!!!! Thank you so much. I have recommended this to all of my bad back friends....more info
  • This product is AWESOME!!
    I sit in a chair all day for work and usually finish the day with a sore back. After using this for awhile, I have no more pain at the end of the day and my back feels great! Also travel alot and love it on the plane too!...more info
  • Back Booster saved my summer!
    I live at the shore and have trouble sitting on the beach in a sand chair.Back Booster allowed me to spend hours there in total comfort.I have now moved it to my computer chair!...more info
  • Bad Product
    Has soft fuzz-type exterior.

    Strap did not fit around car seat well. Will not fit any bucket type or indented seats. It would work on a flat backed chair, but otherwise the strap is superfluous and gets in the way.
    The curvature is not adequate and being inflatable it does not hold its shape well. A firm type foam back support I had once that has a similar (but more pronounced) curvature and is much better.
    After a day or so of using it in my car it went flat.

  • great little item
    easy to use and extremely comfortable. I would highly recommend this to anyone who has to sit for any length of time and has lower back problems....more info
  • Good Shape, Poor Quality
    As others have noted, this thing leaks a lot. Basically, it is single layer construction -- like the cheapo type of air mattresses for swimming pools. The outside has a kind of short velour-like texture, which is not bad. Despite the leaks, it works okay for sitting on the sofa. However, I originally purchased it for use during an air flight. I discovered that since the seats are so close now, when I used the cushion my face was too close to the seat back in front of me. I purchased this thing for a reduced price, so the low level use is okay. However, at $20 or so now, it is well overpriced for the quality. I will look for something else to support my back......more info
  • Leaks - Don't waste your money
    This cushion lasted just long enough that I couldn't return it to Amazon. It developed a severe leak, and would not stay inflated for more than a few minutes. In looking at the reviews, other people experienced this same problem. Buyer beware. Don't waste your money on this product. It was a good cushion while it lasted, but one does expect something like this to last a bit longer than 40 days.

    Update 02/2008: The manufacturer saw this review, and sent me two replacement Back Boosters at no cost to me. I must say that I am impressed with the company's extremely proactive willingness to make things right. I will test out the replacement, and post a further update.

    03/28/2008: I would agree with the review from "Cat's Meow" posted in January, 2008. Three stars - it's an adequate product, but not too helpful for someone with severe chronic back pain....more info
  • comfortable, unless you are fighting chronic or severe back pain ....
    If you don't have a real back problem, but want some lumbar support while sitting at a desk or computer this is comfortable. It works mostly with office/computer chairs, but the strap doesn't wrap around a lounger or recliner. Eventhough you can't strap it down, it does offer some support in a recliner. I had a temporary back problem and it didn't help. I gave it to a person with severe, chronic back pain, to try. Unfortunately, it was of little comfort. It deflates easy, too. I have to keep reinflating it. I rated it a 3-star (not less, not more) because it does have some benefits. Now that my back problem is gone, it does help at the computer. However, for real chronic problems I would try a different product....more info
  • it's ok
    this is didn't really help me much, but, nothing awful to say about it. I like that you can decide how hard or soft it is....more info
  • deflates too soon
    I had the same experience as Robert of Niagara. It worked well at first, but it developed a leak after a week of use in my car. It quickly became useless.

    This happened twice. (Thinking that the first one I bought just had a defect, I foolishly bought a second one.)

  • Great for Sitting at Computers
    Great product for those who sit at computers for long hours and for airline travel too....more info
  • Love it for work!
    I have to sit for hours at the computer to do my work, and my lower back has been bothering me on and off for years. I tried the Back Booster at the suggestion of a friend, and it is GREAT! It is easy to inflate and deflate when I move around to another location. The packaging is nice and fits in my purse. I have gotten more to give to other friends with similar problems as well....more info
