Customer Reviews & Scores
The customer reviews on Amazon reinforce that the Fat Tire snow tube is a quality product. At the time of this writing, there were 44 reviews with an average review of 4.6 out of 5 stars.
While the reviews on Amazon were positive overall the few negative reviews dealt with the Fat Tire snow tube not holding up to being towed by a vehicle. While you can tow the tube manually just fine it is not suitable for being towing behind a motorized vehicle or ATV.
The Fat Tire snow tube is a quality product that for the price is hard to beat. When compared to the Bradley Snow Tube, the Fat Tire is only slightly more expensive but offers better features such as a heavier duty cover, foam grip handles and a leash for manually towing.
