Rated 3 out of 5 by Darkisle62 Good product with no arm rests.
Please note I have not yet used this product and I do look forward to using it in the fishing season but I feel I should point out that on receiving and checking my float tube I have discovered that it is not supplied with inner tubes for the arm rests. On viewing the picture on the website, I assumed that the arm rests were indeed inflated the same as the back. On contacting Bass Pro they have explained to me that they stuffed the arm rests for display purposes only. I am disappointed about this as I expected support for my arms when fishing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FIGG 10 years tubing
I have been using tubes for ten years. I fish northwest New Jersey and rarely see another person in a tube. Why more fisherman are not involved with this personal watercraft is something I just can't understand. Over the years I have purchased five different brands of tubes. The White River Tube is an all round great product, it has good storage, great stability, hours of comfort, and exceptional durability. A great value for the price.
I have gotten all my friends into float tubing, 2 years ago started a guide service. I just retired some of my older tubes and purchased 3 new White River Tubes for my upcoming season. Enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bass Pro The best thing on the water!!
Float tubes are the best period!!
They are light weight, safe, and as comfortable as you can get outdoors.
Especially on the water.
And so easy to afford they are almost free.
I've had all kinds of watercraft and these win hands down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jwader57 Best Buy & Much Better Than Others
I am surrounded by Lakes & Rivers here in Sacramento, Calif. I have used this on breezy to light windy days. It performs alot better than my friend who has a $150.00 model.He bosted about his for a couple of months. I have been able to mount a fish finder & trolling motor and battery. And even a 3 rod holder and a small live well with a portable airator on this Baby. I would not trade it for the world, I have been able to stay out for 5 + 6 Hrs easy. I even bring home a good catch for the day out. There is a Bass club for out here In northern Calif for these float tubes, and think I will be joining. So get one of these when you can their great :) Calif & Life is great !! I am 50 and retired now and loving it,

If 14 pounds is too much for you to carry, try this: you can rig up a single wheel under it, to push it like a wheel barrow. I use a Woods sleeping bag tote to pack the Cat 4 deluxe, keeps it clean and neat.
The new trend seems to be a seat that is higher in the front on U-boats. This makes the user feel more secure but doesn't work for shorter people because it puts the front edge of the seat below the knee and their flippers stick up uselessly in the air!
Float Tubes may be used on lakes. Float tubes can once again be dangerous on large lakes in the event of high winds. Float tubes are not designed to "ride the waves" like a pontoon boat or an inflatable kayak is.
Float Tubes, while they can be used in rivers, are most definitely not recommended for river fishing. This is especially so if the river is fast moving, has rapids or has no current at all. Indeed, on fast moving rivers or where there are rapids, a float tube can be downright dangerous - especially if you are wearing waders.
not heavy, like maybe 15-25 lbs with all your gear in the pockets. It is a different story when you drag it out of the water though, more like 50 or 60 pounds. It does have holes to drain the water though.
