As other have said, it is a good sturdy float and lives up to most of the qualities it advertises. The only problem is it really does not hold up a normal size person from being at least, a bit in the water. I would say, if you don't mind being in 1 inch or more, it is great. If not, just buy the cheap inflatable ones that you get each year for $$ and that way you stay out of the water. I bought 2 of these quality ones and need to stack them to stay out of the water on cool water days.
You do have to get yourself centered on the float, but then it is so comfortable. Floats great. Took a little work to get it assembled -- yes, you have to put the cover on the float portion and inflate it.
