I think this is a great product for what it was designed for. Lounging in the water while being clipped to the tow line, so you don't float away from the boat. I weigh around 140 lbs. I float pretty high in the water, but then it is less likely my margarita would get diluted that way. :-)

I found the carabiner clip made the Gail Force Saddle Float easy to store. I just clip it on an indoor clothesline. The float seems durable and sturdy to me, but I have only used it twice.

Dimensions:
Narrowest Width of Float : 5"
Width: 15.25"
Length: 32"
Depth(Thickness): 2"

I did try it for Deep Water Aerobics instead of using a noodle. It was less tippy than a noodle, but my instructor said I was too high in the water. So I will look another solution for Deep Water Aerobics. For Water Aerobics it might be good for someone heavier than 140 lbs.

Two negatives: 1) When I try to move to exercise, it tended to slide me forward, and 2) Where the float curves in is too wide for me to be comfortable.

I don't know if you were lounging in moving water whether the current would tend to slide you forward where the narrow part of the seat is too wide and thus uncomfortable. I only tried it in still water.

The real test will be next summer if my daughters enjoy playing with it in the water.

Use for floating in the lake. Really good for larger adults. I question the quality. on first use by an average size 13 year old girl, the plastic coating came off. it is still usable but for the price it is a disappointment. only gave it 3 stars because, other than the cover coming off, it performed as expected.

        Comments about Gail Force Extra Thick Saddle Float:

        this saddle float is a grade above the normal floats with the heavier coating. I bought 2 a couple of years ago and they are still like new so as the cheaper floats tear I am replacing them with these. be it a child or a two hundred and something pound person, this float is stable and very comfortable for hours of enjoyment...Have 10 people playing in the water and these are always the floats everyone scrambles to use.

          Used to just float around the lake and also as a bumper on the boat when other boats pull up without bumpers -
          Great as they don't hold water like a lifejacket when you get them in the boat
          Great Product !!!

          The best thing is you can wipe them off and hang them up for storage.
