Cumberlands are great tubes, not too pricey and holds its own against the higher end ones.
I own a caddis pro 2000:
Probably the lowest sitting vstyle tube there is. It pretty much means you are sitting a little below water level. Super light and packable.
Fat cat and odc 420:
Both great heavy duty tubes. Noticeably heavier than the c0umberland, these are tanks of the tube world. You sit pretty high and these generally hold a decent amount of weight as well. Draw back is they are heavy, sit higher in the water meaning you catch wind more. The lack of a "spreader bar" means if you under inflate your tube, you may have a taco effect going. The fish cat has an inflatable seat/backrest option and if you pop a bladder, the foam seating is more than boyant enough to act as an swim assist device to keep you afloat.
Caddis navigator:
Pontoon style tube...still sits in water, drag sucks and the smaller valve for the back rest is strange to say the least. but, rolls up small and very packable

I think the Cumberland is going to have to wait for a while.....

I couldn't believe it, but I had put a sticker on my reel dating the line...it was 13 years old.

Don't count me out though, Ya never know.

I'll bounce back, I'm just a bit rusty!

BTW: Thats about the same time I've been Cancer free, but I think this was just a rod and reel I haven't been using, because, although not a lot, I've been fishing some since then.

So far it seems the Cumberland is a best value, especially here on this forum.
I bought mine 3 years ago and it is still running strong. Like you, I came from an old style, in fact, the one in my avatar. I had a small tear developing in the outer shell after about 10 months. I sent a pic of the problem to Classic Accessories warranty department. A nice young lady called me up asked me if my address was the same, and one week late I had a complete new tube dropped on my doorstep.

here is a link to my first review in 2014

We can't get the Cumberland over here unfortunately, however the vision keeper iso is the same tube the downside is its double the cost of a Cumberland, my seven bass gator does a good job though, pretty sure that's the same as the guideline drifter but mine was £100 cheaper than a guideline Smile
