White River Fly Shop® Lost Lake Round Float Tube
Have used this tube several times for duck hunting(I painted it a nice flat black and brown) and it has worked fantastic for me and I am a big guy at 6' 4". I would recommend it.

Not many other choices
The float tube is well constructed but there are no drain holes in the outer skin, so when you pull it out of the water you have to drag a gallon of water with you that has seeped into the interior. You have to unzip the cover surrounding the tube and manually allow it to drain. The Boston valve is not too handy when you want to add a little air at the lake using your mouth. There should be an attachment you can add to the valve that stays in place with a cap, so it is ready to go at all times. I have shopped around but cannot find one. I like camo, but not an option. I'm just saying.........

Okay for the price
I bought mine on sale about three years ago. The quality of this tube is good, the inner bladder is well made and the outer material is high quality and well sown. I use mine for freshwater bass fishing in Florida and it has preformed well. My main criticisms are in the ergonomics of this tube. As stated by others, it tends to sag in the middle causing the front and back to fold together, this forces you to lean forward and you basically have to fish hunched over. Secondly this style of tube has a sling style seat so you sit relatively low in the tube, this forces you to hold you arms higher than I consider comfortable especially for longer fishing trips. Lastly the space between the front of the seat and the bottom front part of the tube is quite small, it is tight on your legs which causes discomfort and even seems to limit circulation to some extent. All in all for the price this is a good tube, but I would personally recommend going with an open front and with a tube the has a better seating configuration.

I just picked this up for float hunting ducks this season and couldn't be any happier. I has lots of storage for all my waterfowl gear and it's easy to set up and use where I can't launch a boat. Buy one today, you will not regret it.
