Pelican Rotator Inflatable Snow Tube
Bought this last year and this tube should never have been invented. Whoever thought of using plastic instead of vinyl obviously does not live in snowy areas. This tube busted a crack within 3 slides.
Bought the bigger tube this year and the same results happened. My son was very disapointed he could not slide.

Don't waste your time and money
I wish I had read the reviews from previous users before buying this item. My kids wanted to go play in the snow, so I bought them one of this, inflated it inside the house, as soon as we brought it outside to -5, it deflated. Thinking that it was just a defective unit, we took it back, got another one, this time I inflated it right at the park, same story, it deflated in a couple of minutes. I do not recommend this item to anyone, what a piece of junk !

Was a good idea at the time...
Today the weather was 4C out, and we managed to crack one, pop 2 more...these are garbage and I would never consider buying these again! I love the idea of the inflatable tube that cushions your bum from all the surprises on the hill, and this is great for a one time use...but if you are planning on using it more than once, I wouldn't recommend it. I have learned what to look for after buying these though, check the seams, you need a good durable seam and definitely a thicker, softer, less brittle material...more like rubber.

Not good quality PVC.
I bought one, inflated it at home, and took it to the hill. The cold caused the inflation level to drop and I reinflated it to a comfortable level. Made one run and there was a crack by the seam. The PVC is not soft enough to handle the cold, it was only -10C. Hard to find a good tube, believe me I tried.
