Rated 3 out of 5 by Jfox Not thrilled The good...shipped fast, seems durable, lots of straps and d-rings. You also sit up nice and high. The bad...top backrest is not needed. I had to deflate the U-shaped tube for comfort (Im 6'3" 240#). The storage bags are very small. When in the water the stabilizer bar really digs into the pontoons, and the pontoons rotate inward and everything pulls too close. I feel a little claustrophobic when fishing. And the apron sags a lot due to the rotation of the pontoons. A little bit of buyers remorse but I am too lazy to return it. July 15, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hallinin Wow this is nice I have bought Caddis tubes before, but this new material they are using is the best I have ever seen. I love this new Navigator. I did not think it would be better than my last tube , but it is ! Thank you thank you ! May 3, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by sonarbp Not like the old Caddis Navigator! Well I have been tubing for over 10 years and have always used Caddis Navigators. I finally decided to buy a new tube to replace the three I have...boy what a disappointment! Caddis has changed the way the tubes are made and I am not happy. Got my new Navigator II took it out of the box and inflated the bladders. Tube looked great until the rip-stop cover split. I know for a fact I did not over inflate because the bladders were only about 75% full....it is just cheap materials use to manufacture. I did return it to Bass Pro and they gave me another...if it does it again I will just switch to OutCast float tubes. April 3, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by jblawman1 nav ll float tube i have used this tube for 9 years now and have had excellent service by it,i am a big guy 6-1,275 and its very stable,i own 2 of them,1 is a backup, i like the 4 bladder set up, much safer, takes rough water well and i agree the top bladder is not really needed, excellent back support,plenty of storage room, i fish 2 rods and use duel rodholders, this tube takes lots of air,invest in a 12volt inflator and run from the car, you will get more fishing time !!!

Details:I have gotten used to the added safety of a center (crotch) strap on my last 3 tubes. All float tubes allow you to slide down in them when you are paddling, and I like the support and safety of that center strap.I am in need of another tube and would like to know if this has that center strap before I order, and the local BPS did not stock this model
A:There is no strap. it has a wide swing style seat. I have no slippage issues and can easily adjust my seating with no problem. I have never slid down to "paddle" I use dive fins to move about and to hold my position when needed.
A:No strap, but not an issue for me. Probably could add one using carring loop in back
A:mine does not, i dont like the center straps, if you roll over it takes longer to get to the surface, i dont think there as safe
Details:Can a small person use this tube comfortably? 160 lbs. under 6'.
A:Yes. I have a friend that has one who is 185lbs and 5-8. He loves it...
A:Yes, I am 6 2" and 215 before putting on waders but not an issue if smaller. Plenty of room but I think the big floats on bottom are the key for big guys. You sit high in the water which I like
A:yes , you will sit a little higher but moving along is very easy
A:I'm 5'5" and 160 lbs and have no difficulty with falling out. There is some slipping forward and pulling yourself back, but by reading some of these reviews it appears to be a common trend.
Details:what is the weight cap. for this float tube? caddis navigator11.
A:I think the max is 350lbs...I would check the website
