Kentucky Lake is where you can find me in the summer. I love boating, wake surfing and water skiing, but my favorite activity is floating. Dancing in the water with a cool drink in hand and playing music is my recipe for fun in the sun.
I consider myself a connoisseur of floats. I tried your basic inflatable from the dollar store, saddlesa giant peacock floatand the Lily Pad Floating Mat. They all have their pros and cons, but I recently discovered an inflatable pool float that really float my boat — and it’s only $13!
Whether you prefer the pool, the lake or the ocean, the Aqua Original Monterey 4-in-1 Pool Float and Water Hammock completely changes the summer deal. Here’s why you’ll love it too.
Why This Pool Float Is The Goat
What makes that Aqua biggest brand float of all time? Let’s count the paths:
1. It’s compact
The float was so compact before it aired that it was delivered to my mailbox. Once it has air, it remains much more compact than other floats because only the two armrests are inflated; the rest is just mesh.
2. It’s easy to inflate
It is very easy to inflate this float using only your lungs. My husband and I each took a side and had it ready in no time. Not having to use an air pump to blow up the float was a big plus for me.
3. Use it in multiple positions
There are four ways to use this versatile pool float: lie on it like a hammock, sit on it like a saddle, use the floats as armrests and sit like a chair, or just hang on it in front self.
4. Easy to get on and off
There seems to be no graceful way to mount or dismount a float, but getting into this floating hammock is quite easy. The mesh hangs lower than inflated floats, so you can easily swing a leg. To descend, simply swing your legs from a hammock position to a seated position and slide down.
5. It’s steady
It’s like sitting on a chair in water. Unlike other floats, you don’t have to worry about falling off. If you sit on it, you don’t even have to get your hair wet!
6. It’s super affordable
No one will have to lend you a loan for this pool float! The Aqua Original Monterey Hammock 4 in 1 Pool Float can be yours for only $12.99! For $34.99 you can jump for the premium Aqua 4-in-1 Deluxe Monterey, comes with a tote bag and features Aqua Lux fabric that resists fading, stains, mildew and mildew. I took the basic version because I didn’t need a tote. The lake hasn’t turned brown yet, so we’ll see.
7. Choose from a variety of sizes and colors
A variety of colors are available including burgundy, yellow, light blue, lime green, orange, pink and navy blue. The hammock pool float is also available in extra wide, which is 30% longer and wider than the standard Monterey and designed for people between 5’8″ and 7’4″ tall. The regular Monterey Hammock Pool Float is perfect for people up to 6 feet tall, but I ordered the extra-large model for my extra-tall husband. If you want to float with your darling, there is also a double size called the Catalina which allows you to float together side by side.
8. It’s made to last
With a weight capacity of up to 250 pounds, the Aqua Hammock Monterey 4 in 1 is made of mesh and heavy-duty non-stick PVC, which is 50-70% thicker than most other “sticky PVC” pool floats. It will definitely outlast one of those dollar store inflatables! It also comes with a 60-day limited warranty.
9. It’s easy to store and transport
The Aqua Hammock Monterey 4 in 1 is perfect for travel. Let it dry so it doesn’t go moldy, then roll it up and store it, or let the air out if you want to pack it in a tote bag. I like that you can leave the float inflated to store because it doesn’t take up much space. It is much more compact than my peacock float or Lily Pad!
Make a splash with this awesome pool float
I released my new tank for the 4th of July and all my friends wanted to know where to find one. Everyone also liked my drink float – a floating cooler that my husband bought at Walmart for six bucks. I didn’t care until I saw how practical it was in the water!
With the Aqua Hammock Monterey 4 in 1you’ll be the envy of any pool party!
