Ignik, the Bainbridge Island brand on a mission to help people stay outside longer, takes its lineup to the next level with the new Backside Heated Seat Pad. Representing the next generation of battery powered heat, the Backside offers portable, customizable heat built for the outdoors.

The Backside Heated Seat Pad is a lightweight accessory that turns any chair into a cozy heated seat. Made with a weather-resistant, bluesign®-approved 100% recycled fabric outer and premium dense foam, it provides durable comfort for any outdoor setup. The newly designed smart controller maximizes battery usage by allowing the user to customize the heat level and includes heat level memory and an automatic shutoff after 90 minutes. The Backside is compatible with USB-C power banks and other 12V batteries. It is also available in XL, which offers warmth for one person’s seat and back, or two people when laid flat. The Backside is ideal for a wide variety of outdoor activities, from fall/winter camping to hunting and fishing trips to tailgating before a game.

“We are so excited to launch the next generation of active outdoor heating products,” says Peter Pontano, Ignik’s Marketing and Product Development Director. “The Backside Heated Seat Pad and Backside Heated Pad XL build off our new battery powered heating platform, using the latest technology to safely and efficiently provide and control personal heat. Our new hand-held controller has an integrated OLED display (an industry first) that lets you actually see the heat level and fine-tune to your perfect temperature. This takes the guess work out of heating—no more wondering what the color of a push button means. Just set the controller to the level you want, just like a home thermostat, and the technology does the rest!”

The Backside Heated Seat Pad and Backside Heated Pad XL are available now at and other retailers. MSRP: $79.99 (Backside)/$99.99 (XL). For more information, please contact
