I purchased this raft on the 4th of July last summer. I used it a couple times throughout the season - static in a lake. It is really, really fun. The coolers are a great feature. We use them for dry storage, too. Pluses: it's easy to inflate with a double action river pump - it takes me about 15 minutes to do alone. It's comfortable. It's easy to move around in the water. I like having some holes with mesh and some that go straight through to the water.

Negatives- after four uses, one of the seams ripped and now we're unable to use it :(
The anchor was a joke. It doesn't hold this thing in place at all.
It's really, really heavy, but I guess that's to be expected.

Overall I really love this thing, but I'll be super pissed if I'm unable to somehow repair the hole or warranty it's not cheap.

Killer. Not sure about 10 people, but for 4 or 5 it is incredible! Built in coolers, choice of holes to water or not ... a loafers on the water dream. Only thing it needs is a waterproof trolling motor so drunk people don't have to paddle.

I've used this tube 3-4 times now on river runs, and I love it. It fits 8 people just fine, and the two coolers are a nice feature...because they are recessed though they do tend to get water in them (people moving around on the float brings water into them). Not too much, but if you plan on putting things you want dry in there I'd recommend a "dry bag" the kind you get for kayaking/boating to ensure your stuff will be dry when you are done using the float. I'm always surprised how it inflates in about 20-25 minutes max compared to floats that are bigger and hold the same capacity of people. It's held up great, there are two compartments to inflate an inner circular tube around the mesh circle and an outer one, so you are able to pump both compartments at once bringing inflation time down to about 15 minutes before you're ready to roll.
There is also areas to tie rope too to chain additional tubes in case you have a large party.

Beware, smoking can cause holes in your tube from the embers/ last party float died that way after getting a few of them, so if you like your toys you spend money on I recommend telling your friends to hold off on lighting up on your float.

I purchased this item to take to Shell Island near Panama City Beach, FL and it greatly exceeded my expectations! It's HUGE, (obviously, it says it's 12-foot) but I never took into consideration how big 12 feet really was. It's made with the thicker plastic so it won't tear easily, which I love in case we take it down the creek. It's a little heavy for me to carry comfortably but my boyfriend can carry it easily. I also bought a Black & Decker ASI500 12-Volt Cordless Air Station Inflator through Amazon to blow it up with at the island, works like a gem. From flat to full, total time was about 15-20 minutes. But, the easiest way to blow it up is by using a gas leaf blower against the quick-release valve, in case you didn't know.

We had 6 adults on this tethered to a calm bay and it was amazing! Too big to tube with though. Spent hours hanging with friends- this one is a keeper.

When I opened the package I noticed a small hole by the seem..... The description of the item said it was like new. I had plans of using this on a family gathering that is coming up shortly and now those plans cannot happen.

This float was AWESOME at the river.
We had 10 people on our float and sometimes 11, and this float held up extremely well.
The material is strong and it is very sturdy. We also had ice chests (on top of the ones that were already built in) and were jumping off of the float.
I definitely recommend this float! <3 :)
