Summary

This paddle float does what it's designed for, but it is a little on the bulky side and not the easiest to put on in a hurry. On the large size so it helps to get you back into your boat with ease. Doubles as an awesome camp seat on multi-day paddles or some extra cushion in your kayak seat.

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Dries fast
  • Reliable
  • Doubles as a camp seat

Cons

  • Bulky
  • Hard to attach in a rush

Well made paddle float, lightweight, although a little bulky/large on deck. Works well for self rescue and gets you back in your boat but I would suggest a few practice tries at attaching it to your paddle first before you attempt. It doubles as a camp seat on multi day paddles and I also use it occasionally as extra padding in my kayak seat.
