This float is the best purchase we made this summer! It is thick & strong enough that 8 teens got on it at one time & ran & jumped & played all afternoon! I couldn't get over what all they came up with to do with this thing! Finally just gathering around its edges & chatting. It has strong grommets so we tied a rope to it & the dock & didn't worry about it floating away. Several boats came by to see what it was they were having so much fun on! Even the dog likes it! It also rolls up easily & has strong straps with Velcro for storage. I had younger kids later too & they were able to roll it up & put it away. This is an awesome product that I hope to use for many years!
This is the best float I've ever bought. Hard to walk on though. Great for lake! Can float with a little water or a lot depending on your weight. Hard to roll up while on boat, but we do. We played on it all day. Plenty of room.
My kids love their floating mat. Best investment I made for the lake. This comes out every time they go in the water. They can get about 8 kids on it to play. I used the cup holders to tie a rope and anchor onto it so it stays in one place.
Big Joe is a great mat for the price. Good qulity. Not as thick as some of the more expensive mats, but you cant beat the value. Sadly, its overpriced on here. Sama carries the same thing for 260.
The float was very expensive compared to blow ups. It sinks about a foot underwater where ever a person sits or lays down leaving you in a pool of water on the float unlike pictures, which are a lie.
Love this water pad. My family loves to play or lounge on it. Great value for the money
This mat is designed for sitting only. First time an adult stepped on it his foot went thru. I wish the directions would of suggested only sitting.
Just used this watermat for the first time over Memorial Day weekend. Kids and adults loved this mat. The grandparents loved sitting on it too! It's thick and sturdy and the kids loved jumping on it and playing games on it. Great quality! Definitely recommend buying it for a lake house!
Just as advertised and already enjoyed by the grandchildren. Haven't used it myself but the report is: "perfect!"
I bought this a gift for my mother to use at her lake. I did not think it would hold several adults but it does.
My kids absolutely love it, and the size is great, but I cannot believe the price of this for a piece of foam. We had to purchase one for our neighbor, as we borrowed their's, and my 175 lb husband decided to jump on it from the boat landing on 2 feet. Well, the 2 feet popped right through the mat, so beware. It is not very thick, and the foam gets scratched up so easily, just from normal use.
This thing is huge. The only downside is the cup holders are tiny and only fit a bottle of water size drink.
My family and I absolutely LOVE this water mat. It arrived on time, in a huge box--- bigger than a water heater! I thought it would be heavy, but it's not. It's very easy for me to manage. We use it in our pool, we took it in the boat to the river, and we tied it to a dock. My kids (in their 20's) love using it, and my friends kids (10 year olds) spent hours playing on it. I research these mats and Overstock had the best price. I'd buy it again in a second!
I dont think it will hold as much weight or people as they said it will. It seems rather thin. I was a little disappointed in the quality but we will see how it holds up. It sure seems like it should not cost so much. The kids have enjoyed it anyway.
I wouldn't even give this mat1 star. It is terrible was used 2 times and has s big split down the middle. I will be trying to return it and get s refund. I would not recommend!!
This only lasted one summer. My teen son and his friend tried running off the dock onto the mat and one of their feet went right through the mat. After that the whole got bigger and bigger until the mat nearly split in too. I emailed the company to see if they offered some sort of repair kit and never got a response. I found a make shift repair online and will try it, but I am not holding my breath. Really disappointed after spending quiet a bit of money on a short lived flotation device.
Waited 2 months after purchasing to get some use out of this item before reviewing. This works great! Kids really like it and it is easy to roll up and carry on the boat.
Works great on Lake and Swimming Pool
Picture and description show multiple people above water. One person on float puts you 6" underwater. Terrible product.
Fantastic for the lake, kids and adults both enjoy .Great price as well!
