White River Fly Shop Lost Lake Open Front Float Tube
Best buy on a budget or otherwise
I have two closed front and a recent open front, actually wore out one of the closed front and the second, which was for my son, not home now, is still going stong. My brother used it with no problems, bought the open front because it would be easier to get in and out of, which it is, the other 2, I got 7-10yrs ago, and now I am not as limber as I was then, and plan to buy the new style with padded seat, etc. Granted nothing is perfect, but have never had any leaks, if I had, I know BPS, would have gladly replaced it. I have no reservations about buying another.

I'm 6'4" and 315 lbs, and this tube worked just fine for me. I fished all day with it yesterday, it holds air well, and is stable. Even for a tall guy like me, the back rest was fine-I'm actually considering taking out the very top bladder, to use as storage. For the price, you can't beat it. The tube is very maneuverable and handles choppy water and wind well. I didn't have any issues with sliding forward out of it or anything. All in all, if you are looking to buy your first float tube, and don't have the cash to buy a more expensive one, than this is the perfect one to get.

lost lake, great buy
I've been fishing for a long time in so. cal and other places as travel permits, and float tubing is one of my favorite ways to spend time. The tube I purchased from bass pro is the white river lost lake model, very nice tube for the price. This float is very easy to get in and out of, as well as entering and exiting the water. I am 6' 2, 210 lbs and it rides nicely in the water. Plenty of space on board for storage and well crafted. I'd definitely recommend this tube for anybody, beginners or experienced tubers. In fact, my girl and I bought one for her dads birthday shortly after mine arrived. I can't wait to go use it again.

I just purchased the White River lost lake open front float tube but discovered three design flaws.
1. the stabilizer bar was too long to fit in the apron sleeve. It had be cut 1 inch to fit.
2. the velcro on the apron would not reach the velcro on the side walls of the tube, and had to be moved.
3. the inflation valve for the main tube does not line up with the cover hole.
It was a good thing that I assembled the float tube at home instead of at a remote lake.
