We love this thing! TikTok made me buy it. The awning is great and the base self inflates when you turn the knob, which is such a smart design. You squeeze out air and turn knob other direction to deflate and store. I couldn’t tell what material this was made of and was nervous that it was cheap this plastic like a cheap tube you float in, but it’s not. It’s very thick, durable material. I will say it takes a while for my baby to get acclimated to the water at first so that is the one thing that’s tricky - I don’t want to strap him into this thing right away and have him scream his head off. Overall great buy though- once he’s used to the water it’s great. Very sturdy and no safety concerns about him coming unlatched etc.
