Customer Reviews

If you're looking for a sledding tube, buy this one!

We took them down the river tubing and they did just fine.

This is much too small for even a small adult to use.

So when I first blew up the tube, I used a little car air compressor, the ones you plug into your lighter. The tube was not big at all, and I was majorly dissapointed. Then today I stopped by the gas station and put a lot of air into it. I was surprised at how big it became, and it worked great for floating down the Snoqualmie river up here.

After reading the other reviews, it's clear to me that the other reviewers didn't put enough air into their tubes. I'm a 180 pound guy and this tube was plenty big enough for me, no problem.

I would highly recommend the tube and can't wait for winter use. Just be sure you keep putting air into it (I would have a good compressor).

I used these tubes this winter when Seattle had it's big snow storms. They were great for tubing in the snow and was way better than sleds, etc. You can take jumps on these and they actually provide a cushion'd landing. AWESOME!

One caution though, be sure to let air out of the tube if you're not going to use them for a while. I store them in the rafters of my garage, and have left them inflated. However, I walked out last week and they both had popped. It's obvious since I inflated them for snow use, as the air warmed they expanded, obviously beyond what they can handle. They lasted 4 years easily for me, and would have lasted longer had I only let some air out before storing them for summer. gotta order more for river fun now.

The thick rubber in this tube stands up well to rocks and other hazards in river tubing. It also inflates to a size that is fine for me, a 170 lb male. I've tried to find the maximum safe inflation pressure online, but I haven't found anything yet. Just blow it up until it is the right size and you will be happy with it, I promise.

I bought one of these tubes even though I needed three. All these sketchy reviews had me scared.
Once I received it in the mail, I filled it up until just after it started to bubble on one section. I wanted it as filled as possible. At that point, it was clear that this tube is not large enough for an adult. Guaranteed.
It was an extremely tight fit around our medium-small cooler.
We took it to the Salt River here in AZ and it was actually the same tube they rent out for coolers, or very small children.
I have no idea where to get the tubes they have at the river for adults, but they are certainly much larger than this one.

I got 8 of these, and while one of them blew, which I'm guessing was a fluke, the others worked out great! kudos to the reviewer who said to make sure you had enough air in them. They will get pretty big--big enough for an adult, or you can leave it smaller for a child. we even used one to float our tub of ice and drinks. Works great for that too. Can't complain at all. I have no idea if they work on a car or truck though, lol.

I remember the inner tubes from cars so long ago and that's what I expected when I ordered this tube. What a surprise. The thick, wrapped rubber looks like it will last forever. I use this inner tube for back rehab in the swimming pool. After exercising, I go to the deep end of the pool and just dangle with the tube under both arms. This stretches out my spine and gives my bulging discs some relief. When I received the item, I was afraid the very long valve would poke me but I find that I don't even notice it. I have plenty of room (146 lb adult female)and since I never learned to swim, I use it to keep me afloat so that I can pseudo swim...it works! This product will last, not like the newfangled swim rings made of plastic. Baby Boomers rejoice...have fun again like a kid and help your achy bones at the same time.

I bought this for floating in water. It is a decent size tube as you would typically rent to float down a river. I've only used it once but it seemed of good quality (forget about the cheap plastic inflatables). Decent price for a good product.

Like other reviewers, we initially thought this tube would be too small for my 180 lb 6'3" husband to use for river tubing. However, we inflated it to 39" across, and it worked very well! It's a great size, and well-made.

Purchased this inner tube for sledding last winter, but it also works pretty well for summertime tubing. It could be larger if you wanted something ideal, and being a real inner tube its width isn't extremely even. My only suggestion is maybe going to a hardware store or a garage for something cheaper.
