The Sonic Snow Tube is a fantastic product. Well worth the money. This is the second one my son has had. We ordered the regular a few years ago and had to upgrade to the XL. I would recommend buying the XL the first time, as little ones grow way too fast:) If I had to order the XL the first time, it would have lasted him for yeras. Very durable. My son has had hours and hours of fun on his tube. They are also not too heavy for pulling back up the sliding hill. There is also a great video on L.L. Bean Website to show how to inflate probably, which we found very useful. Customer service is top notch.

My daughter received the Sonic Snow Tube for Christmas this year, and we put it to the test today. It passed with flying colors! It's very sturdy and well-made, and slides really well in the snow. She had a blast! I highly recommend this snow tube to anyone looking for a fun and reliable sled.

Just had to write a review after watching the hours of fun my son is having on this tube. He received it as a Christmas gift. What good timing as we have had a lot of snow. We have a popular sledding place known as (what else) "dead man's hill"! When my son, age 11, shows up with the tube it is the most popular thing there, 3 an 4 kids pile on it at a time and they even go over snow ramps with it. Everyone wants a turn and it is used hard. We have had other snow tubes that last a day and while inexpensive, they are just money down the drain. I would also recommend the x-large as that is what we have and I couldn't imagine using something smaller. Think of what you pay for a video game for your kid to sit on his butt in front of the tv and then think about all of the exercise and hours of fun they will get with this. I guarantee you won't be sorry!

These have been the best purchase we have ever made for sliding. Every winter, our church youth group comes to our house for a sliding party, and we used to purchase the snow tubes that you buy at a hardware store. Needless to say, most would be popped by the end of the day - it was getting expensive! Then we discovered these snow tubes... although they cost more than what we previously used, they have paid for themselves, as we can use them every year since they are so tough!! It can be a bit scary though, as we have clocked them with a GPS at 35 mph... and there are some days after an ice storm when I don't let our four boys use them - they go too fast!! Highly recommended!!!

this is a quality sled that is built to last. it's large to store and the instructions recommend keeping it inflated off season so you'll need some space. My 5 and 6 yo boys could sit in it together and then my husband and i both used it. Really fun!

We bought two of the extra large tubes after hesitating since last year. It was the best family gift this year. We are a family of four with two adult sons. It's a snowy winter this year in PA, and we've already used them multiple times. The quality is fantastic, they glide in the snow, and they look great too. Sledding is not just for kids as long as you own the extra large L L Bean snow tube.

We've had this for 3 winters now. At NO time has my child or I been able to get this to go down a hill with any sort of speed without help.
By "help", I mean pushing or pulling it.
It does not matter what type of snow.
It does not matter what the incline of the hill.
If I prep the snow - dragging the kid, in the sled, repeatedly over the snow, to pack it down... oh wait, that didn't really work either.
It's a beautiful looking sled - I want to love it. In theory, is should slide as nicely as a saucer. But the fact is, it doesn't really slide. I could go to the grocery store and get a saucer that would work wonderfully at a tenth of the price. The only ones impressed are the parents. And then they see my kid begging to borrow their kid's cheap sled.

L.L. Bean has become our Santa. For the past three years I've ordered items to take along on our January trip to our cabin in Taos, N.M. We got Snowshoes one year, Sport clothes to Snowshoe in the next year, and this year I took the risk of buying my husband a Sonic Snow Tube. He would have never even considered buying a Snow Tube, but when it arrived in a huge box and he had to wait until Christmas to open it he was really interested. I worried that he may not like it, but I was wrong! He was like a kid! I got the red plaid one. Taos didn't have much snow and we had to find it, but we took the Tube out and had a great time! We also Snowshoed and wore our winter sport pants and jackets. Thank you L.L. Bean for making quality goods and getting them to us on time.

We received the Sonic Snow Tube for Christmas. Less than a week later snow was here and the children were having a blast! There is no need for a large hill with this Snow Tube, any downward slope will do and they really fly! We love them! Children's comments: Awesome! Cool! Rad! Sweet! and Fun, Fun, Fun!
