I bought the pump while it was on a 'special', but even at full price, would happily recommend this to others. It was purchased to inflate a 'proper' Sevylor inflatable boat that would have been beyond the capabilities of most typical pumps sourced at your local camping-type shop ... it's a bit harder work than using an electric pump, but much, much faster. The pump itself is quite robust, and of a larger size (though this is a 'plus' if you are trying to blow up a bigger inflatable) and works smoothly and easily. There are a decent range of fittings / adaptors supplied which would (I guess) allow inflation of most toys / pools / boats etc, and although I would have liked the hose to have been a little longer, it was perfectly functional. One small word of caution about the hose though; it's a flexible concertina-type affair, and I'm guessing that if it was stood on / flattened, it would likely crack, though I've not had any problems with it ... it's merely an observation.
