I have been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to fish quite a few float tubes now. These have been test ridden to check them over and review new products and report back what I think. Now it has moved into selling some of these boats well. There have been some amazing inflatable boats I have had the opportunity to test ride, but there is one that still is on the top of my list for a few reasons.

The Classic Accessories Cumberland Float Tube has is still on the top of my list as best float tubes. I am sure if you have used one in the past you can agree this is one heck of a great tube. The Cumberland is on the top of my list for a few reasons.

1st - The pockets, they are large and the double zipper opening allows you to load the boxes up and still get to what you need when you need it.

2nd - The foam, seat some don't like it but I have never had an issue it is comfortable and keeps you high out of the water.

3rd - It ready to go - It has been years since I have had to put together a float tube. Recently 7Bass boats showed up and I had to assemble them. It's tough to line up the bladders in the boats. The Cumberland is great because you don't assemble them together they are ready right out of the box.

4th - They just work - I have not had an issue in the years I have been using them. They are built well and if you take care of them they will last you a long time.

There is not much I don't like about the Cumberland it is just a great float tube and at just around $150 it is the perfect entry level boat. Just wanted to put this out there anyone has anything to add post away.

I agree the Cumberland is a great tube, but it was an upgrade for me.

Here is a review I started in 2014, that is 5 years ago, and it is still fishing strong.

FYI
It cost about $175 back then and was a good deal.

It looks like a killer tube and from what everyone says its a fishing machine. I am a caddis man myself. I have had no issues with any of the caddis tubes I have had. If I get the chance in the future i will definitely give this tube a try.

I use the Cumberland and feel it's a great fishing workhorse that is comfortable and has everything I need float tube fishing so far. It's also very durable and a great bargain Thumbs Up

I was fortunate that I bought the Cumberland as my first tube, I bet I have fished out of it at least 100 times in 2 years without a problem. I love mine!!!!

Welcome aboard Hai..........I have owned 4 tubes in the last 7 and a half years. My second tube was a Cumbie from Classic Accessories. It is by far a great tube for the money. I sold it to another member and as far as I know he is still using it. I'm old and have no cushion on my butt so the foam was a little ruff. I now own a Savage Gear 170, inflatable seat and removable storage pockets, which I have come to really love. Tight lines............GT

I’m still using the Cumberland that once belonged to gt. I have three other tubes but greatly prefer it over the others due to weight (both gross and payload),having a crossbar to reinforce the lap tray and portability. Once the life of my current tube finally catches up, I will be ordering another. But by the looks of how well it’s holding up, it may be a while.

I am presently fishing from my 2nd Cumberland float tube and I presently have two more Cumberland float tubes (NIB) on the shelf in my garage waiting to be hatched for their maiden voyage’s.

I named my 2nd (current) Cumberland float tube the “SS MOJO”.

My 1st Cumberland float tube; that I named the “SS stitch”, which I sold to TobyB and I understand that she is still afloat to this day. Thumbs Up

So these float tubes will last you quite a long time if you treat them well and keep them clean.
