Honest review

I'm not one to post reviews however, after reading the reviews for this tube I'm quite surprised and thought I'd add my .02 cents. First I'll address some complaints others have made about this tube starting with the valve location. After using this tube and the original 420 for the past six years, I have yet to have a problem with the valves moving out of place after being inflated. I believe I've never had this problem as I inflate my tube 3/4 and then adjust the tubes so they are properly aligned with the valve openings before I fully inflate. Such a simple task which takes all but five seconds. My opinion is incorrect valve placement is not poor design but rather the operator of the tube is poorly inflating his/her tube. Is this tube the best on the market? No it's not, if you want the best buy an Outcast SFC. If you looking for a quality float tube on a budget that's also lightweight and packs relatively small then this may be the right tube for you. The inflatable seat/back rest work great and provide ample support even for myself at 210 lbs, compared to the Outcast, this tube floats just as high in the water column. (I own both this tube and the SFC)

good tube

I had my previous float tube for over 20 years. Unfortunately the bladder failed and the company had gone out of business. I needed a float tube that is convenient to pack into the backcountry. Most of the newer float tubes are too heavy. This float tube is light enough to pack yet floats much better than my previous float tube. The 420 inflates and deflates very easily however the bladders can shift making the valves difficult to center in the float tube. Besides this inconvenience the tube has served me well the last two seasons.

Bad choice

After 30 years in a belly boat float tube I thought the 420 with its front entry and air filled seat cushion and seat back would be better for my back after 3 surgeries. The seat and seat back were excellent, unfortunately the 420 is very difficult to maneuver for anyone with short legs. At 5'5" I had a terrible experience trying to turn this boat. I gave up after an hour on the water, I finally managed to pull to shore, and hiked back to my truck. The plastic sleeves over the inflation valves kept getting in the way when inflating the boat creating lots of frustration from he get go.

Would reccomend with warnings!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bought it at Cabella's 8/30, tried it once, and was very frustrated with the product. As others said, the valves move, and then you either fish them out of the small opening or you unzip the side where you need to get. I had issues with the zippers snagging on the narrow piece of fabric by the zipper. Major pain, especially after hiking in 5 miles for the maiden voyage. The backrest didn't hold air, and I used a Outcast seat instead of the one that comes with the tube, due to wanting to be able to use a pump instead of mouth to steem to inflate. At 9,000 feet didn't want to rely on blow to inflate. Tried to inflate back, but just said forget it, after I tried to adjust the straps for the back rest and one of the quick release tension straps cracked and broke off. Finally got some air in both bladders, as I was getting ready to get going I notice one of them is low on air, so I made some adjustments and refilled and it held. Must say I was a bit hesitant while out in a favorite high country lake a long way from anyone or thing. Kept pushing on the side to make sure it was holding air. I would say get rid of the boston valves, major pain. And the information says 7 lbs, felt a bit heavy, then I came acoss some information that claimed 8.75 lbs.. Feels more like the later. All in all not a bad tube, but I like the valves on the Outcast Trinity way better. I am more familiar with them and have had no issues with my two Outcast Fat Cat 4 which I have had for more than 10+ years. So I took this back, and no hassle and got the Trinity today, can't wait to try it. At $399 the Outcast is considerably more, but I really don't want the worry or hassle of inflation etc.. I did also get the Creek Co. light weight fins with a seperate leash. I have two set of Force Fins, which are great, but HEAVY, so I will use the other tubes maybe for drive to lakes and the Force fins, and the Trinity and light fins for hike into lakes. I would reccomend this product with some warnings, some can't or won't spend the extra dollars for the Outcast tube, so they would be o.k. with this one.
