These are great straps and once you have them you will be so comfortable packing your float tube that you will find yourself fishing harder more remote places and probably catching more fish! These are so comfortable, now you can get rid of that crappy parachute cord thing you have been calling a carrying strap. LOL, time to upgrade. Just do it and quit fooling around they are less than $30. With the purchase of a float tube you will need some accessories to get started. If you have never owned a float tube before, you will definitely need fins and a pump at a minimum.
