I haven't bothered putting the backband in mine yet. I was just thinking, other than getting a small sore spot on my back from occasionally bumping my coaming, there really isn't any need for it. I was planning to put a small strip of 1mm neoprene directly on the inside of the coaming and not bother with a backband.

Does anyone have any reason that a backband should be used, other than comfort?
