Seat foam suggestions?

My seat is comfortable for about 20 minutes and miserable after 60. I know there are a lot of high dollar solutions out there but I'm not in a position to do that now. What are my best options in the $100 range? I have the original seat and would be happy to stick with it.

I know a few LD riders that swear by them, and they are under $100.

A friend put one on his Ultra Glide Classic and said he loves, it especially in warm weather.

I went to Wally World and bought this ATV seat cover for $19.95. Worked wonders.

That looks like a great solution. Is there a part number of vendor name on it I could use to find the same one?
