On the negative side, however, the rigid plastic inflation tube into which one blows air to fill the bag is easily broken by routine use. The stiff tube broke off at its insertion point and pulled out of the bag, rendering the product useless. It seems to me that Jackson should redesign the Fun Float and use a flexible inflation tube which would not break off when the bag is inflated. I have tried in vain in the past to get Jackson Kayak to respond regarding product issues, so I didn't waste my time contacting them about this issue.
I give the Jackson Kayak Fun Float a 10 for the concept, but a 1 for durability. It is not cheap, and it should hold up much better than it does. It gets an overall rating of 4 from me.
