    Easily packed float - suggestions?

    I am taking a carry-on to Aruba in December so have limited space. I purchased a spring float and when I got it realized even after it collapses it is just too big for the small suitcase. Does anyone have any suggestions for one that packs well?

    Thanks!

    We will pack a new one going, nice and compact then give it away to a deserving person and ask them to pass on and so on. In other words, our raft gets a longer vacation than we do

    I have been the lucky beneficiary of a donated float while there. It is a great way to lighten up the old suitcase before you leave the island and make someone's day to boot.

    we carry the papason type of spring float that fits in our carry on. Its much smaller and when in use looks like you are sitting in a flying saucer.

    Will be taking the papasan float this year and then pack in our our timeshare storage tote for future use.

    Floats

    My husband and I recently returned from Aruba. While in the water we were speaking to a woman who had a very nice large float. I asked her how she transported the float to Aruba. Her reply was that she purchased the float from the Holiday Inn Sunspree gift shop for only $5.00. The pool boy had an air pump and put the air into the float free of charge.
