After breaking countless toilet seats made out of all sorts of standard materials such as porcelain and plastic, I've finally found the perfect seat for my rather large rear end. I often spend significantly long amounts of time sitting on the toilet and although this could have a little more on the comfort side of things, it's so strong that it hasn't even broken yet! It's also very light which is great because I've always hated bending down to put the seat up and having to lift a heavy toilet seat, I mean, I'm never in the mood to do THAT much working out... Overall, great product, just missed a little on the comfort factor. You definitely need some stamina to spend long amounts of time on this thing but it's so light, strong, and aesthetically satisfying that it outweighs the lack of comfort!
