Been using mine on the river for years. It really just depends on where you float. The stretch we usually do has Class I and II rapids. Flow matters, too.

A couple of folks in our group were given a heavy-duty mesh cover of sorts that attaches to the bottom of the tube and protects it from debris. I looked at the time and couldn't find anything like it in the usual places and I keep forgetting to ask. I'd throw that on my Intex tube as extra insurance, but the truth is that we've had very few issues with durability.

Good for pool or lake, not great for rivers. If serious about river floats, check out Tube Pro Inc for a durable (although much pricier) river tube. Vinyl or rubber with canvas cover

Great for pools, beach, lakes, and lazy rivers.

Not great for rapids or places with numerous sharp objects.

Be mindful of your environment and these are a GREAT value at this price...tons of cheap fun!

I've taken these down small fast flowing creeks with different sized people from 120 to 300 pounds. We haven't had one pop yet but we do make sure we don't hit metal sharp edges. They are definitely worth ten bucks each.

Stellar deal! We've been buying these for years now. Unfortunately there's been quality control issues ever since they went to the new styles, the seams bust super easy but at this price its well worth picking up a few! We use them for lazy tubing down a river, they work great when they dont fail! We always bring duct tape and patches just to be on the safe side.

True, mindfulness goes a long way

I love the canvas covers, it takes the fear out of a random unforseen scrape. Sometimes going around a fast river bend, I end up bouncing off a bank with debris that was not intended or couldn't be steered away from.

We've had a few buddies pop cheap tubes mid float that have long walk of shame back to the car while the rest of us float on. More beer for us!

Hah, the one time someone in our group had a tube failure (slow leak, not a quick pop), they just floated down the river holding onto the headrest and holding their beer.

The two-seater is the real SD here. But, shipping kills it for me. No Academy's near me. Anyone got a free ship code, by some miracle?

They are $20 on amazon and in local stores, so yeah $10 is a great deal. Buy a few to get free shipping $25+.

I know the price list original as $12.99, but retail instore(anystore) and amazon normally go for $20+. So at $10 a tube, these are a steal.
