    Interesting product, I may have to order one! Though this specific one comes from an Australian website, so even though it may be cheaper with the US dollar I wonder how bad shipping is to the US?

    Do I have a right to be frustrated?

    This is mostly just venting, but if I'm out of line in my thinking please let me know!

    I would say that the panels are squishy but not soft. They definitely don't feel like they are hard or compacted but they also don't feel soft like a leather saddle. I could be misinterpreting the...
