I just picked one up recently and I'm impressed. I've used similar inflatable floats and for the price this is the best one in my opinion. Durable outer shell and solid badder on the inside. Very well constructed and designed. I especially like the velcro flaps on the bottom. They are great for keeping your tag lines organized for carrying. Another nice touch are the heavy duty rubber handles on both sides of the float and one on the back of the float as well. You won't be disappointed with this float. Oh - the flag pole I got was a bit long but it can be easily cut down to suit your needs.
