Does anybody have one of the HO or Mission inflatable mats? Just curious of opinions on brand and how much you use it. I think my kids would love it when we are just hanging out swimming around the boat. I like that it deflated compared to the old style mats but also wonder if itís a beating to pump up every time.

I got this one last year from Costco and has worked well so far.

Seems to be good quality. Comes with 2 pumps and isn't too bad time wise to blow up. I usually make my 6 year old help me and we can fill it in just under 5 mins.

Between the foam roll up and the blow up you could argue the pros and cons of each. The mat is nicer but does take time to blow up so if you are moving around during the day you wouldn't want to inflate and deflate a lot which is where the foam style could be nice as you can roll it up. I'd say the downside to the foam is I've heard rolling it can be a pain and it's much larger of an item to store. Not sure what a wet foam mat weighs but the blow up is 50lbs.

^ How do you think it would hold up to a 85 lbs lab?

Don't think it would be an issue. I can walk on my mat without it buckling and I'm over 200lbs on two The mat is quite stiff when blown up and is pretty thick material.

Just picked up a Large Mission Reef thanks to this thread. I was waiting to pull the trigger on an Aqua Lily pad for quite a while but couldnít justify the money. I have an old DD Supra so space to store the lily Pad was a concern. The Mission Reef looks to be a lot more flexible with the way it folds down and fits in the duffel bag.

I wasnít aware of the inflateable options until this thread. Thanks Wakeworld!!
