Tops its competitors for features such as the spacious, 5-person size, comfortable seats with backrests, i-beam floor, and thick PVC vinyl material.
Large and awkward to handle when inflated. Not for fast-moving water, but great for river or lake cruising.
Stands out for its high-pressure inflatable floor that is somewhat sturdier than others in its class. Has a durable vinyl build. Comes with oars and a pump.
Doesn't fit many occupants – rated for 2 adults and possibly a child. Seats are removable, and don't stay put in the raft. Not for rough water.
An easy-to-inflate and handle model that has a seriously tough PVC vinyl build. Comes with a pump and aluminum oars, and has oar and fishing rod holders. Earns praise for its true fit that accommodates most 4-person groups.
Floor lacks stability. Not for use in rapids. Seats are a bit uncomfortable due to nonexistent back support.
Stands up to use in most lakes thanks to its thick PVC vinyl construction. Has fishing rod and cup holders that make it a handy option for fishing excursions.
Though rated to hold 6 people, it may be a tight fit. Not ideal for use in rough water. Pricey. Seats are uncomfortable.
Fits up to 3 people. Made of sturdy PVC vinyl. Features bright colors and attractive design. Can be used on lakes, yet is small enough for use in some pools. Affordable.
Comes with oars but they aren't very sturdy. Not a lot of space once people get aboard. Challenging to maneuver, and not for use in rough currents.
