by fromThe Swiss Army knife of paddle floats The North Water FourPlay Multiple Use Paddle Float is a terriffic addition to any paddlers gear. Being multipurpose it does save space compared to packing a camp chair, a sleeping pad, a beaching pad and a terrific booster seat for little paddlers! Although it is bulky if you stow it on your deck I find it very handy in the cockpit so I can grab it in a hurry for beaching or if it is needed as a paddle float. I originally got it as a vehicle protection pad but was amazed at how quickly it became a must have on my every adventure. North Water needs to call it a Five Play as it is fantastic as a booster seat for little paddlers.

by fromNice piece of gear but . . . The Fourplay Paddle Float does everything stated in its description except serve as a paddle float. It would probably work for a 140-150 lb. or less person. I weigh 195 stripped down (+ 20lbs. of wet clothes if I go turtle). Fortunatly, I discovered the potentially fatal shortfall of it not providing adequate boyancy while practicing self rescue! Other than that, it's a great piece of gear to carry on-board. It has a number of handy features/uses and is easy to stow. When stopping for a break or to eat lunch it's nice to sit/relax on something soft and dry. It could also serve as an emergency life preserver for a child/small adult in trouble but . . . DO NOT depend on it as a paddle float IF you are a larger statured person. In that department, only an inflatable paddle float will provide the necessary boyancy to support a larger paddler. If I were a small paddler, I'd give it a 5 but I would never recommend it - as a float - to an average sized or larger paddler.
