Default Seat manufacturers closest to Corbin?

I've got a Corbin Gunfighter and absolutely love it, but the pillion is a bit...non-existent and I'm getting complaints. I looked at the Gunfighter and Lady but I've been hearing really poor reviews of Corbin as of late and they are way more expensive than a lot of the other brands. So my question is this, what brands are similar in firmness and the lower profile cut of the seat?

I'm have short legs, so the thin cut of the Corbin is nice for me. My cousin has one of the Mustang "tractor seats" on his sporty and I don't like it at all. It's too tall and soft. It's proven hard for me to find anywhere for me to try out seats for the old rigid mount sportys, so I'm looking for a little guidance here. Thanks.

Sargent Motorcycle Seats http://www.sargentcycle.com/ I have a Corbin on my SV650 and a Sargent on my VFR800Fi & FJ-09. The Sargent is comparable to the Corbin.

Looks like the only thing they have for Sportsters is they are a Mustang dealer.

If not Corbin or Mustang... Might checkout Saddlemen (Explorer) or LePera (Maverick, Monterey, Sorrento). They both make similar seats to the Gunfighter & Lady...

Can't attest to their comfort... But I can say that LePera's build quality is excellent.

I’ve had a couple mustangs, and lepera’s, one saddleman and one Corbin. Liked the mustang for comfort, lepera for looks, saddleman for fit (also short) and Corbin the least (too damn hard). Lepera is closer to firm but not as hard.

I bought a seat similar to a LePera from C&C seats. Quick service with a lot of custom options. I have had several complements on it also. I find it to be much more comfortable than the stock 2006. Custom seat. I can ride twice as far before my butt gets sore. Sits me lower to the ground too.
