Humvee Upgrades: Oregon Aero HMMWV Seat Upgrade Preview
A set of HMMWV front seat cushions are on the way from Oregon Aero, Inc. for review!
This set are Oregon Aero’s standard Humvee seat cushions.
I am incredibly excited since some of the most comfortable and supportive aircraft seats I have ever had the pleasure of sitting on were from Oregon Aero. Unlike a car or truck that you can pull over to get out and strech your legs, flying an airplane doesn’t allow the easy option of pulling over. Back when I was flying a lot of Search and Rescue missions with the Civil Air Patrol we had a plane with Oregon Aero seats and I admit to sometimes choosing that aircraft over others in the Wings simply because of the MUCH better seats.
What Oregon Aero says about their HMMWV seats:
HMMWV (HUMVEE®) Seat Cushion System
The Oregon Aero Seat Cushion System for the High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV — HUMVEE® Vehicle) is energy-absorbing, pain-free, and durable. Users consistently give the cushions top evaluations.
The front passenger seat cushion features an internal thermal barrier and external foil-faced reflector to keep heat from the battery box out of the seat cushion and away from the passenger.

Other HMMWV seats
We are already in the process of testing both the old style, original HMMWV seats and the newer military issue “high back” HMMWV seats and will post reviews of each soon. HMMWV seats on eBay.
