The Jack's Plastic Daddy Cat is the ultimate whitewater performer.  Tested and used commercially for nearly two decades on the Class IV-V Upper Animas, the Daddy Cat is a proven design.  It's fully capable of serious whitewater descents, with enough weight capacity for longer multi-day trips like Cataract, the Salt and Gates of Lodore.   25 inch diameter tubes keep you floating high, while the blunt tips give it the same waterline of a boat 3 feet longer. 

The Daddy Cat is constructed with 42 oz bottom / 35 oz top welded PVC for maximum durability.  Each tube features two cone shaped baffles for safety, which will extend to 2/3 the length of the tube should one chamber go flat.  Blunt tips keep the waterline long while reducing the length and offer some bounce should unexpected encounters with a rock wall occur.  Daddy Cat tubes come with a 10 year manufacturers warranty.
