A cushion to sit on in cold weather



Looking for a cushion that will keep my buttocks warm when sitting outside in cold or freezing weather.

For the last 30 years, we have used "blue pads" cut off the end of an old-fashioned thin closed cell sleeping pad. They are very light, instantly useable, insulating, waterproof, don't absorb water, dry off fast and are durable. They keep your butt dry and warm when you sit down whether on a log or a picnic bench. They even work as insulation on a mesh camp chair when its cold out.  The only real disadvantage is that they blow away easily. We have lost a couple to the wind over the years.
