Rated 5 out of 5 by Rainboodle First time tuber
I recieved this for my birthday this year as my boyfriend and I have taken up fishing and wanted to get out to where the fish are. This tube is very easy to put together and inflate. Due to our limited car storage space we underinflated it to get to the lake and filled it up before we got it into the water. Its easy to get in and out of with plenty of storage space for tackle. We pared down what we brought but were able to fit 3 4 X 10" tackle containers and a small fly box into one of the arm pouches. The other I used for the essentials: clippers, pliers, drinks (cupholder would be nice), sunblock, waterproof camera, small towel, snacks, wet naps, stringer, lip balm (as a girl this is truely essential). There was still room in the first pouch but until I get better with the tackle I have I will just have to slowly add on. The tube moved well thru the water and I had no problems other then tired legs from kicking. Thank god for the safety strap between the legs since it does feel like you are sliding into the water. I wish all the tubes had this. Very comfortable, the netting was helpful for changing lures and retying jigs. Its not too heavy even with all my tackle and extras in it so carrying it was a breeze. I didn't have too much trouble when the wind kicked up either. It does ride a bit low in the water but I did not get any water into the back of my waders and that was even as I was leaning back against the back of the tube. I would recommend this tube to others and the price was more than reasonable for the product. I am looking forward to many more days out on the lakes and reservoirs.

Look no further. Solid boat at great price. Only complaints are I slide down in the seat over time and the arm rests are empty so pack your stored items like Tetris unless you want to be uncomfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Flipperman Good value
I have used the tube 6 times, so far so good. It is easy to carry and seems durable enough ( keep away from sharp objects). The tube came with a patch kit that I hope to never need.
Storage is good and I like the front crossbar and soft lap table set up. I made a rod holder and a portable depth finder out of PVC pipe that increase usability greatly.
The tube is very stable, the only disadvantages I see are that as you are seated in the tube you have a forward lean rather than a neutral position. I suspect that is because the tube is U shaped - not a big deal. The only other issue I noted was that after an hour or so of kicking around, my hips were a bit sore as these seating position places pressure on your hips. I am tall and thin so this may be less of an issue if you have a wider "base" of support. I am going to get a foam kick board and fit it onto the seat, I think that will provide a better base of support.
Even with the very minor issues noted above I would purchase again or reccomend to a friend as it is great fun to use and a blast to catch fish with- great value

Rated 5 out of 5 by zechnas24 Great Purchase, Very satisfied
Great Float tube don't even think twice. I love this tube it doesn't loose air, and it has great maneuverability and you don't drift away from your fishing spot even if the wind wants to push you away from the fish. Also stores away nicely.
