    Tired of plastic floats and the tears and leaks they develop with even the most gentle care, we wanted something stronger. We bought 2 of the Kelsyus loungers. We like the additional footrest. They are really light and fold incredibly flat. We think they will provide perfect flotation in the Lazy River and in the sea where we anchor out and people watch...

    One caveat about the Kelsyus floaters that both Walt and I recommended: DON'T leave them in the sun when not in use: there's an outer layer of material that seems to dissolve. We tried keeping one in a storage unit and one just by the pool. The storage unit floatie is still in use today but the "left out" one started to dissolve. But we still got a couple of years out of it.

    That is AWESOME!

    That second picture though... it just screams, "Here, let me get you a Gatorade... there's no roofie in it. I swear!"

    I have this one, too. But the Kelsyus one-just the chair part looks like it would be good to sit in and read. We also have another lounger/seat float that I brought down for me but hubby uses. Oddly enough, I found the same float in my older son's college crap. Since ours has developed a leak, I'm going to blow it up and see if it holds air. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Intex-Inflatable-King-Kool-Pool-Lounge-63-x-33-5-Color-may-vary/20703065?wl13=2109&selectedSellerId=0

    We like the swimline inflatable noodles for convenience. They are smaller to pack and they can be stored nicely in the rafters of a palapa with no worries of them blowing away.

    The best trip is the next trip. Anxiously waiting to book something.
