I bought two of those for a trip to Hawaii since I wanted to bring some water floaty that would be light weight, compactable, and small. This was perfect! They are incredibly light weight, and they fold flat like a pair of jeans. They take only a few seconds to blow up and deflate. The material also felt very high quality. They don’t feel like it would puncture easily and the seat doesn’t feel like it will tear. And I used them near rocks that I scraped against, and it was fine.
You can also use these for multiple ways is sitting/ laying. You can sit in it like a chair with the floaty sides under your armpits, you can lay on it like a bed with your head on one floaty and the back of your knees on the other, or you can sit on it like you are riding a horse.
I weigh about 132 and my husband about 180 and it held both of us fine. But it would not support both of us on one.

Let this be a tale of caution for all of you that will use this on the lake: YOU WILL GET TOO COMFORTABLE AND FLOAT AWAY. This float rocks. In the picture you see I finally got smart and held onto a rope so that I didn’t have to get a full Michael Phillips workout in to get back to the boat at the lake.
Excellent purchase: easy to tote, easy to inflate, multiple ways to hang out on it: sitting like in a chair, horsey-style (lol), or laying out like in the picture. Love it so much that I purchased 3 more. Durability has been good so far—gave that 4 stars for now.
Husband is 6’2 and 240 lbs—no issues. I’m not putting my weight here. Look at the pic and give it your best guess. Kidding. Don’t do that. Let’s just say I’m not 130lb, but not 230 either. The other reviews on the durability, etc, seem to be spot on.
For my lake folks out there—get a rope if you don’t have one. Seriously. I fell into the best nap and almost couldn’t find the boat. The kid on the jet ski was nice enough to splash me without fulling taking me out, so I got that going for me. Lesson learned.
This worked out great! The negative reviews had me a little hesitant to order these, but I’m glad I did. We bought the navy and white striped ones on 5-5-19 and used them at a resort in Mexico.
1. They must’ve replaced the valves based on feedback, because the ones we received had the usual valves on inflatables. Pull out the stopper, squeeze the sides, and blow in. No problem. Deflating was easy, too.
2. I opened them up and inflated them at home as soon as we received them to make sure they had no defects. Both were fine. I recommend doing this.
3. There is a slight smell, but airing them out helps. It didn’t bother me, but it bothered my husband a little. The thickness of the material was nicer than I had expected based on the reviews.
I am actually dealing with an injury right now that makes it difficult to walk. Possibly a pinched nerve or sciatica issue. (Still getting a diagnosis on it.) Sitting upright in this hammock by straddling it in the pool with an air pillow in front of me and behind me was fantastic. It took the weight off my hip and back and it was soooo nice. I did not want to leave the pool.
It was also comfortable to recline in it with my head on one pillow and knees propped up on the second air pillow. Experiment with how much air you put in each pillow and see what works best for you. You may only want to inflate them two thirds of the way or something.
I found that the best way to get on it in my injured condition was to stand on the steps of the pool and put the long mesh part between my legs with a pillow in front of me and behind me and then walk down the steps into the pool. Getting onto it once in the pool would be easy enough for fit and able bodied people, but if you have any concerns about mobility, just walk into the pool with it.
I cannot think of anything negative about these. They deflate and fold down as small as a shirt or pair of jeans in your suitcase. Easy.
My husband is 5’8″ and 160 pounds and I’m 5’4″ and 128. I think these would still be comfy for people bigger than we are. Highly recommend.

I purchased this for a trip where I would be snorkeling. I’m not the strongest swimmer and this was my safety net. It worked great with the inflated parts under my arms. Not only that, it was fun to use as the chair in the hotel pool. It was small enough to be approved for use. Lastly, it packs extremely well, taking up next to no space, and having little weight.
After using this hammock twice, I don’t know why they make any other style of pool float! It was very easy to inflate, but it stores pretty small – I even take it to the pool already inflated. It’s pretty easy to get into (start seated, rotate to lie down) and so amazingly comfortable. I’ve mostly used it reclining, with my head and legs on the floats, but I’ve tried it sitting sideways too and that was also comfortable. I even tried it on the pool deck, and it wasn’t bad – with the headrest, it was more comfortable than just lying on a towel.
It’s only been a week, so I’m not sure about durability, but the material and seaming look and feel pretty sturdy, and I think it would be easy to patch small tears.

Perfectly compact for travel, minimal time inflating, multiple floating options (sitting, under arms, or laying across). I’m so glad I got this for my trip. My friends bought some too and they love them.
The Navy one has a white net that turned an ugly yellowish color after the pool, and the teal one has a blue net so it didn’t have discoloration. It’s not really any kind of deal breaker, but I would recommend the teal one over the Navy one for that reason.
Overall very happy to have a low profile float for lounging without having to drag a giant float up and down from our room, and it deflates and folds up small and flat for travel ease.
i travel a lot and enjoy floating in the ocean or pool. the old style blow up usually never makes it home cause it gets a hole in it . this type is easy and quick to blow up the sides …you dont blow out a lung doing it …easy to let the air back out and best of all it packs easy …very light as well…..what i also like its easy to take in the shower wash it off from the sand and the smell of the ocean and drys quick . this product is worth every cent to buy you wont be disappointed
