Editor's Notes

June 11, 2020:

If you are looking for a little extra padding or support while you drive, one of these car seat cushions should do they trick. They come in a variety of styles, from small pillows to full seat covers, so you shouldn't have any trouble finding one that perfectly suits your needs.

If you tend to suffer from lower back or tail bone pain while driving, you'll want something that is designed to help keep your spine in a natural alignment, such as the Clever Booster and Aylio Coccyx, which both feature a coccyx cutout, or the LoveHome LH-ML001, which provides good lumbar support. The Excel Life Portable, which looks very much like a regular pillow, but in miniature, can also easily be placed in a position that allows it to support the natural curvature of the spine. The LoveHome LH-CLK01 provides both lower back and cervical support when both pieces are used together, or, you could even split them up, with the driver using one of the cushions, and allowing a passenger to use the other.

For those who don't really need dedicated support in specific areas, but simply want something that adds some extra padding to their seat to make long drives more comfortable, we have the Big Ant ZDTB07, Sojoy iGelComfort, Zone Tech SE0018, Sojoy Four Season 2.0 SJ219A, and Zone Tech SE0046. Each of these offers their own set of benefits that you'll want to consider when making your pick. For example, the Zone Tech SE0018 and Zone Tech SE0046 are both good for keeping your body at a comfortable temperature. The former offers heating, while the latter features a cooling fan. The Sojoy iGelComfort is also a smart choice for those who tend to get hot while driving, as its gel padding has a grid structure that is designed to promote airflow. The Sojoy Four Season 2.0 SJ219A can do doubly duty as a seat protector, potentially keeping your vehicle's upholstery safe from stains and punctures, and the Big Ant ZDTB07 has a small pocket in the front for valuables, which can be very helpful for anyone who often forgets they put their phone in their lap, and have had to deal with the experience of later getting up and watching as it shatters on the pavement.
