These floaties are our go to inflatable lounge for several years running. They are sturdy, I am a big & tall man and these keep me afloat for hours. Because the price is reasonable I buy 2 or 3 every year. Some for people in the pool and one for our Golden Retriever who likes to float on these also [see photo] I've tried more expensive inflatables for the pool but these are the best I have found for my needs. Th dog has nails that can pierce thinner plastic but these hold up and other brands/styles do not have the buoyancy that these King Kool do, I end up sinking in other brands because they are cheap, I leave them inflated all pool season, after the following winter they get discolored and I eventually toss them in the garbage knowing I will replace in the warm months. I usually buy them at Target in the summer for similar price as Amazon but at retail stores they are only available certain months of the year and they go fast. This year I decided to buy here on Amazon early since its already pool season here in Southern CA and luckily I got different colors which is what I wanted. I like that at the end you can put your legs through the large opening on the end and dangle your feet in the water or prop them up. Our dog likes the opening also, he puts his front paws in the water and periodically he dunks his snout and head in the water, its also a place to keep his tennis ball when I am not through it . for him to swim and fetch... see photo

bought these back when they were on sale, so the price was right. arrived quickly as prime does, but the durability is just not there, if you are a comfortable sized adult you may look for a little more enduring, forgiving, whatever..... when grandma tries to get on it and the seam bust out its not a good thing, not once but twice, I bought 6 (one for every member) so far blew up three and two seams busted out in nearly the same spot. maybe a person of smaller statue under 50 yrs. 5' 3" 150lbs would be different.

Oh. My. Gosh! This was like heaven on the water. My kids have fifty million inflatable toys and water guns and sometimes I feel like the pool is the least relaxing place to be. I got this so I could get a little sun on my legs while being in the pool this summer, but what I actually got was a love for the hole with water in it that resides in my back yard that I'm sometimes tempted to throw bags of dry concrete mix into. Maybe it is the Coke in the cup holder talking...probably the Coke...but that headrest hits me just right. the hole for my feet is just the right distance away so I can dip my toes in the water when I get too warm, and that cup holder, well the possibilities are truly endless aren't they! My kids know this is off limits to them. The nieces and nephews have been warned that if they would like to inherit anything from me some day that they will keep their mitts off of it. I do share with the rather harried looking adult that comes to visit from time to time. There is just something magical about when you sit in this rainbow raft of Ahhhhsomeness, it transports you to a pool far far away where there is only sun, warm breezes, birds calling, sea (pool) spray, and cold refreshing drinks at your fingertips. Even the noise from kids screaming and splashing then fighting and yelling then cannonballing on top of eachother seems to be transformed into a distant fading nightmare when you close your eyes and just float around on this. If I lived near a lake I'd have to tether it to something, because my luck I'd fall asleep and end up in the middle of the lake with the sun going down and no paddle. So if you are wondering if you should spend the $7 something dollars to buy this, I'd recommend asking yourself, "How much is your mental well being worth to you?" Mine is worth a whole lot more than $7 but if it were more I might not have bought it and then think of all I would have missed out on.

So pleasantly surprised! I have never owned floaties in the past but really wanted to take a few camping this year. I am 5 ft tall and 120lbs and this thing rocked my socks. 4 days of continuous use and still going strong. Here as some things to know:

1. Like most floaties or air beds, it will stretch a bit through first time use, so it'll loose a tiny bit of air/stiffness. It is not enough to be un-usefull or a bother - I just realized it needed a bit more air on the second day of use.

2. It has an open back to let water creep up on your lower back and bum, the more you sit up or lean forward, the more water will pool. You will get wet on this floaty - you will not stay dry.

3. The cup holder works for a small cup or soda can, but be mindful, my short arms really have to reach to get the cup, which causes you to sit more in a V which causes more water to come in. This may not be an issue for a taller person.

Again, no issues thus far and it works great for laying on the lake with a nice cold drink!

Super comfy to float on, really difficult to inflate. Our electric air pump had to be pushed into the valve as far as possible, and even then I had to squeeze the valve really hard to move the flap in order for the air to be allowed through. It all had to be placed just right then don't even think about moving or adjusting once you notice it finally inflating. Once you find the sweet spot it's fine. Overall it's decent for the price.

THE STANDARD for comfortable utilitarian float tripping. Unmatched in comfort, portability, value, and on-the-water mobility, the King Kool has cult status among my circle of friends. It is surprisingly durable, able to survive trips in whitewater rivers (Class I-II, after that all bets are off). This baby will bump or even ride over rocks with gusto as long as you don't overinflate it. I have tried many types of tubes, the most popular type being the standard circular tube. The King Kool rises above as you have full control very low in the water, being able to use both hands for propulsion along the sides with full range of motion. You can really move in this thing and navigate rapids with ease once you get the hang of it. The "hole" in the front can snugly fit a small cooler or drybag. As long as you don't pop it on a difficult seam tear, you can repair it pretty easily with Gorilla Tape mid-trip. I have a friend who used the same King Kool for 3 years of river float trips before it gave out.

***INTEX, IF YOU ARE LISTENING!!!!*** The King Kool is great and a great value, but if you make a more durable premium version with thicker more resilient material (especially the bottom), YOU WILL HAVE MANY BUYERS. It would be far better for the environment as well as my group of friends has had to "retire" (throw away) an unfortunate number of King Kools in our travels. That said, they really are durable and should hold up for many trips. I have grinded mine over plenty of shallow river rocks with no issue and repaired it with Gorilla Tape.

I've only had the Inflatable raft for a few weeks, but so far so good. I don't give it a terribly hard workout, but I do get some nice, relaxing afternoons on it. For the money it's not bad at all. Check out some the questions and answers that go with this product. Search for the quests about inflating the two pieces of the raft. Personally, it took me less than 10 minutes to inflate the whole thing by blowing it up manually. The trick to it is making sure you squeeze the valve just right as you blow it up.

Bought 2 of them. Love them! They will definitely last through the Summer.

We've had an ongoing joke in our house with my 45 pound dog. I nicknamed the floats 'Nessie' because my dog acted like there was a monster in the pool when the wind would blow them around. At first. It took him about a week to warm up to them and now he will actually ride pretty contentedly! So I would say they are pretty sturdy holding up to his nails.

They are comfortable. The cup-holder placement needs to be moved or I would have given it 5 stars. Maybe on the arm rest instead. It is too low to use functionally.

Otherwise a great float for a very comfortable relaxing time!

Really great raft at a great price. Floats myself (110 lbs) and my husband (175 lbs), separately of course, without letting water on the raft like flimsy ones do. The upright recliner part is great for comfortably laying back on, and I can lay face down on it for 15 mins or so before it gets too uncomfortable and awkward, which is when I just flip back onto my back. They are holding up to the kids playing rough with them as well. I would definitely recommend them. (I bought 2, but they are sold individually).
