> Go to a Medical Equipment Supplier and ask for T-Foam (aka Temprafoam) this is used in wheel chair cushions. If they do not have the foam ask for a wheel chair cushion that has it and cut it yourself to the required size. Your body temperature will mold the cushion exactly for you.

> I need to make a seat cushion for my plane.  Yeah, I know what you're thinking, "Don't you already have enough cushion on your seat?"  I've dropped some more pounds since I saw you guys last, so I actually do need a cushion, thank you.
> Anyway, I'm trying to find some foam that I've seen several pilots use for extra cushions.  It's soft and pliable, but it's really dense so it doesn't squish down too bad.  I thought that a sleeping bag mat might work, but the ones I've seen are really thin, and even with layering them, I'd have to buy 3 or 4 of them (at $30+ I know there's got to be a cheaper way).  
> I need to go up at least 4 inches, so I'm thinking if I can find 1 or 2" thick stuff, I can stack it.  Any suggestions will be appreciated.
