New seat pad at Costco

Ladies and Gents,
Just picked this thing up at Costco today. It's almost identical to the one sold at Walmart only some different technology. It's got some "cooling gel" so the "boys" don't over heat. Well, that remains to be seen (or felt). I just got it so, the test is on the way. It was about $15.00 so, I figured I couldn't go wrong. It's a tad thicker than the W/M one so, I'm anxious to check it out. I only use the W/M one when I've ridden for quite a while and the seat's getting like a brick wall.

If this has been brought up before, sorry, I didn't see it. If not, take a look, see what you think. Take care and ride safe out there.

Smile cushion

I better run right down there, seems Costco's stuff gets rotated alot so you seldom see the same stuff...or maybe that's just me...

costco #

Can you list the costco item number please? I just looked at costco.com for seat cushion, that item doesn't show so it might be a local store only item, but can do a stock check with a costco item number.

While I don't have the receipt just now, this is what's on the side of the box:
ITEM # 501080

Hope this helps some.

Scott, do you have a brand name on this item. We dont have Cosco's in Oklahoma and I would like to maybee able to find one since you left the item number but no brand.

Thanks, PARTSMAN

I tried a Costco pad similar to that awhile back and found it to be not as comfortable as the WM pad. It was to thick and didn't cover the whole seat.
