    I just noticed that the U boat is on sale at cabelas and I'm wondering a couple of things about it

    What is the valve system like, how hard is it to inflate/deflate? My caddis has a bike tire valve and it sucks to deflate so its hard to hike with, take down and put in my car etc...

    How small does it pack down to? I'm not concerned about weight just size

    This is just my two cents worth - but you might want to look at sierratradingpost for a good deal on a waterskeeter uboat. They hold you higher out of the water and hold up really well.

    They also inflate/deflate relatively easily. They ahve a screw cap that you would find on many other types uboats and pontoon bladders such as caddis.
