That’s right! You spent most of your time in the truck driver seat cushion.
How often do you think about it? Sure, you wash your trucker t-shirts and clothes. You change your truck‘s oil regularly and check your truck tires. But how much attention do you really give to your truck driver seat cushion?
I doubt it is that much! Sure you might brush the crumbs off of it or might even vacuum it occasionally. But beyond that do you really maintain your truck driver seat cushion? Do you really put much thought into it?
For some people truck driver seat cushion means nothing, but for people like me and you that are directly or indirectly involved in trucking, a good truck driver seat cushion means the world!
If you are like most long haul truckers, you spend 8, 10, 12, or more hours a day (depends how much you obey the hours-of- service,(HOS)), firmly planted in your truck driver seat cushion.
Even for the most rugged and experienced truck driver the long trip can be tough to endure. Heck, you are seating on it for a good amount of time, even when you are parked on one of the good truck stops!
That’s why you should really pay better attention to your truck driver seat cushion. Oh, sure many of the newer trucks come equipped with very nice seats. But often they just don’t cut it. An uncomfortable seat can add to your fatigue. It can disrupt your concentration. And worse yet, it can lead to other truck driver health related problems.

Obviously I can’t go into every single little detail but I will try to cover as much as I can, to help you find the best truck driver seat cushion for you.

Although there are many truck seats on the market today, I did some basic online research on different forums, magazines and such. Out of that research I was able to getter some of the best ones out there.
Few of the popular name brands available are:
- Hammacher Schlemmer ;
- Wondergel ;

- Clever Yellow;
- Xtreme Comforts;
- Easy Posture Brands (Dr.Tushy);
Of course there are numerous other companies that make and sell truck driver seat cushions. So you can shop around and see what fits you the best! The choice is all yours!
They also come in many styles. Here bellow, I will mention few of the most common.
Pressure Relieving Truck Driver Seat Cushion
Some consider this to be more comfortable than the ever popular memory foam. A pressure relieving truck driver seat cushion actually ensures that your weight is even distributed throughout the cushion.
This can actually help reduce and even eliminating those uncomfortable kinks at your pressure points and joints. They are designed to fit most any seat and will actually conform to your body’s unique shape.
Gels Seat Truck Driver Seat Cushion
Of course you already hear all about those seats, they are very popular among the trucking world.
These also are designed to help redistribute your weight. Some feel it is like sitting on a waterbed or other firm but fluid cushion. Whereas traditional cushions are made of foam materials that actually ‘push back’. This creates discomfort overtime.
The good thing about these truck driver seat cushions is that they come in all sizes and can actually conform to your vehicles seat, as well as yours office chairs and such. They are washable and usually very durable.
Memory Foam Truck Driver Seat Cushion
Memory foam truck driver seat cushions are the one that people might be more familiar with.
After all, memory foam has been around a long time! In fact this was inspired from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) space flights.
That’s right, you hear me well; it was first used by the astronauts in the 1960s. So if it was comfortable enough for the roughly 238,000 miles (384,000 kilometers) to the moon, surely it will give you a comfort ride for your trip in your bobtail truck, straight truck, or even your ¾ ton truck.
Heated Truck Driver Seat Cushion
So who doesn’t love to hop into the truck on a cold morning and plop down on a nice warm seat?
After all, what’s a better way to start your drive and hit the open roads, than to be nice and comfortable?
They make them in several styles, some run off your truck, others are battery powered. They can have adjustable temperature control too. Many of the truck manufacturers like Peterbilt or Volvo even make them for your truck, or you can buy an after-market or custom made truck driver seat cushion.
Massage Truck Driver Seat Cushion
