A great pool toy!
on April 30, 2011
This is a really great pool float - here's why:
1. It's so comfortable. Depending on how fully you like the back rest inflated you can almost sit right up, or lean back. The arm rests are just perfect too.
2. It's durable : mine has been subject to quite boisterous use - it's been used in pool party "tournaments" with races, collisions and the like, and not a problem!
3. You still get wet. This is definitely a pro (you are in the water after all). I hate when it's just too hot lying on the plastic and you start sticking to the seat. All too common in an Australian summer. But with this one, you can wriggle down and get your feet up to your knees wet, kick around the pool (great for racing!) and get generally wet enough to offset any overheating that may be taking place. It's much better than those rafts where you are truly just baking atop the water. It's also nice to paddle with your arms, kick through that hole and zip around the pool, staying cool generally getting in people's way (usually the people who want to have a turn on your lounge) Depending on the way you lean back, you can also get the water coming up through and around the back rest to keep you cool. Of course, if you don't want to get too wet, you just have to get your angle right and it's perfectly fine.
4. The colors. Just a personal preference, but it screams summer to me.
