What is the best seating support device that y'all use? Or is it about posture? Or a combo of both?

I have been driving a lot lately for this oilfield company and I'm starting to fill it in my butt and back.

Do you drive with anything in your pockets? Specifically back pockets?

I was wondering if wearing a weight lifting belt would help? Since it keeps your posture better overall? Thoughts?

Nothing in Pockets.

I find that supporting the small of my back helps a bunch when it starts to get sore ... fold up a flat pillow and put it right at the base of your spine - it tends to keep you from "slumping" too much which is one of the causes of a sore back ...

I have good posture (as I slouch while writing this! Lol) and have never experienced a sore back or ass.

In sure there is something out there that u can sit on that can make the ride more comfortable. Rather than look mindlessly on the Internet and reading lame or false reviews I thought some one here might have a secret they would like I share. I guess I'm alone on this issue.

I thought about trying an office chair style back support after seeing one in a truck stop. If I do and it works, I'll post on here about it.

Through trial and error I found that by raising my seat and tilting it forward it took some of the weight off my back and distributed it to my legs.

Should have said the back of my legs.
