I've never been a fan of suspension seatposts. I really don't want my seat height and positional relationship to the pedals changing by an inch or more every time I hit a rough patch. I think they decrease pedaling efficiency and have never seen a seat suspension that made a significant difference to riding comfort. They might feel a little cushy, but you will likely be just as sore as if you rode a standard seatpost. If you need suspension, get it in the fork and rear of the bike, not between the seat and the frame. IMHO
