Light, pretty compact & effective.
I found this product to do what was described to do. It pumps the water out. But I have one negative comment about it. The motion of the handle from the extended position to the compressed position is not as smooth as it should be. I found this out the hard way last week when I found myself capsized 150yds from the NJ shoreline. I was trying to pump the water out of my kayak as fast as possible and I found this resistance from the handle inconvenient. I adjusted the compression motion from a straight motion down to a twisting- as-you-push; this improves the performance. Besides this fact the pump does move out a lot of water relatively quick.
Great insurance policy for offshore kayakers. It moves a lot of water.
This pump works as designed. It floats, is small and compact, and pumps a ton of water.
