The FlipNFloat is a tri-fold floatation device made of high grade foam and a mesh covering that is mold proof, mildew proof and will last for many years! There is no need to inflate and it is very versatile: float on it, sit on it, use it as a poolside cushion, chair cushion, beach blanket. It weighs 2 lbs. and is so easy to store (17X14X5 when folded); easy to carry to the beach (handles). The FlipNFloat is good for all ages and will hold up to 300 lbs.
