This is a great product. It does NOT take up hardly any space and who has time to blow up a float when they're in deep, moving water trying to keep it all together. Whoever said these were too cumbersome or took up too much space (reviews I read) are nuts. Pay more for others, but this is the most bang for the buck AND EASY.

I haven't used it yet but it fits my paddle, looks like it's well made and will do the job for which it's intended. I was amazed at the ticket prices for paddle floats and had even put together a homemade one that was required for a roll class. This one will be buckled on to my deck and will be ready if and when it's needed. The inflatables may provide more flotation and take very little space when deflated, but I don't think I want to be taking the time to blow one up if I've capsized in heavy swells or find myself in a situation where one is needed.
A Paddle float may be used for reentry into a kayak after a capsize in open water. It may also be used for a reentry and roll, or for training a kayak roll. For more information. http://www.outdooreyes.com/paddlefloatrescue.php3
