"A good friend of mine has this tube and I have first-hand experience with it.
Functionally, it is fine. It floats and moves around on the water without issue. It's also lightweight and occupies a small amount of space.
I'm not a fan of the seams; the way they extend past the body. They make an expensive tube look cheap. Not a big deal, but dropping significant money brings certain aesthetic expectations.
Now for the real issue: Maybe it's just me, but I hate these valves! With this tube, you'll want to allow 20 minutes or so for deflation.
Your buddies will have everything packed and ready to go while you're still hugging your tube in an effort to get the air out faster.
You may hear things like, "Come on, Ethel", or "Hurry up, Granny" accompanying the faint hiss of air slowly leaving your bladder.
Better call home because you're going to be later than you'd planned.
Perhaps my friend and I are unaware of a faster way to deflate, but it's certainly not obvious.
The included fins are also awful. They don't hold to the boot well, no matter how hard you pull to tighten them. Every kick will result in separation from the bottom of the boot, then slapping on the down stroke.
You'll be better off with a different pair of fins.
Heck, you'll be better off with a different pack tube and have money to spare for some real fins."

Quality Product,

"I have only used it once, but appears to be a very good quality product. It is light weight (8 lbs on my scale), packs to a small enough size to backpack, the valves and chambers hold pressure well, & was easy to maneuver on the water. It does not put the fisherman off the water as high as some of the other heavier & larger float tubes, which is OK with me for the trade-off of being light weight. The only reason I didn't rate it 5 stars is the cost of this item (fairly expensive), and access to the lower seat cushion valve can be a little tough to get to if you don't fill it up before the main chambers."
