I'm in the market for a float tube. I'm looking at the 'U' or pontoon variety where you actually sit out of the water (supposedly). I need the portability of the tube for some trips this year. I hate buying without experience 'cause I know what that's like. I don't necessarily need a super light weight one, but I do want to be able to carry it up to a half mile. Appreciate any tips/recommendations out there from your experience. Thanks in advance!
