    This is a good tube. I have last years model which is a different color but otherwise the same. Unlike previous models the drains are in the area between the seat and back cushions so you get wet just sitting in the tube.

    If you want a four person tube consider this one instead. I had to order it and as I recall they shippped it to me within a week. It’s still sitting in its box waiting for the next boating season.

    Both are subject to Costco’s seemingly never ending warranty. No receipt required and you only have to bring back the tube not the tow rope and or pump or even the box it came in.

    Any comments on this one? Looks small for two, but might be great for one. Many outings, we have just one tube rider (adult sized) where this tube might be perfect for one person. Plus at 79 bucks you can't go wrong. I guarantee we will beat the F out of it after one weekend. Will Costco really take this back and give a refund no questions asked? If so, this would be a great free rental tube for one rider. It does, however, look like it might be a POS and not made well like some of my old standards.

    or this one, which I think is built for one medium sized adult?

    This kid and his friends are on the large size....

    I’ve exchanged over 5 of them now and the only questions they ask are what is it, when did I buy it and sometimes about how much I paid for it. Oh, and do I want, store credit or a refund?

    I bet the body glove (lay on face down and forward) tube will take a full season on beatings maybe more.

    My older guests and I don’t use them anymore, to hard on the neck and back but the disks also make great sun pads.

    What? I hope that is not a new nationwide policy. I did a return and a separate exchange in September, brought in just the tubes and didn’t have any problems at all. If they did want the pump and/or rope it would not be a big deal for me to produce them. After a few cycles of this I have at least two unused ropes and pumps sitting around at any given time.
