I love my Togiak.

Before it reaches the end of it's lifespan I have decided to demote it to 'buddy tube' status.  Sad

Bought me a brand new Cumberland float tube. I've wanted one for awhile now. So it's official...I'm part of the Cumberland crew now. salute

Congratz on the new tube!

You will have to give us a compare and contrast report.
Lure Storage, handling, float levels.

I like the look of the Cumberland (type of sausage in the UK) but we can't get them over here and shipping plus handling cost and import duties means it's a no go. I've found what looks an almost equivalent tube that I'll upgrade to at some point

As far as ranking the Cumberland...it isn't exactly at the top of my list. But I have a lot of stuff I have bought and built that attaches to the tube. There needs to be certain features or I end up doing everything over.

So the Cumberland wins...won!

Oh, and I'm not a fan of orange. Now pink is a whole other story. Cool

Let's face it bro, getting old sucks. But I pity the fool that counts us out. Old lions are the most dangerous in the jungle!

WOO HOO!

Got my Cumberland about an hour ago. Opened it up. Inspected it closely. Aired it up. Inspected I closely. Transferred all my externals from the Togiak to the Cumberland. A few minor adjustments, and she is ready for her maiden voyage.

I am crazy busy today and for the next two weeks. But as I sit here I am trying to figure out how to adjust my schedule so I can put her in the water tonight!

I am very impressed with the Cumberland! I'm very happy with the decision to go with it as an upgrade.

Man do I love Float Tube fishing! I should just sell the boat! I never use it.

The Cumberland report...

Took her out for her maiden voyage. After some minor tweaking she was anxious to get in the water. Float Tubes are like that. Like a pet, you have to feed them all the time.

As I prepped her to get wet. Rolling Eyes the differences between the new and old mounted up. The pockets seemed to be about the same in size. But the Cumbie was just two large pockets while the Togiak pockets are compartmentalized. I use numerous containers to organize my stuff. So the compartmentalization worked better for me

The inflation valves are far superior on the Cumbie! No contest there.

The apron on the Togiak has clips on the end to secure it when not in position. No chance of it getting away while I am entering or exiting the craft.

The backpack straps on the Cumbie seem wider apart. This causes them to want to slide off of my shoulders when hauling it. A simple chest strap will remedy that.

And finally; on the water!

Entry was about the same. First thing I noticed was how high I was sitting above the water. This is due partly to the larger pontoons but mostly because the seat is also a large flotation device. This also prevents the pontoons from pulling inwards when sitting in the tube.

Legs not as far into the water which in turn means the fins are closer to the surface. In small water I like to use small snorkel fins for better maneuverability. Sitting higher up means I won't be able to perform hard kicks to fight wind or current as effectively. I can easily counter this with my dive fins.

There is considerably less friction on the water with the Cumbie! This of course results in the wind scooting me around more easily. It also means it's a lot easier to propel it in the water too.

I really like the zipper set up on the Cumbie pockets. Works very nicely and is far superior to the ones on the Togiak.

The seat on the Cumbie is superior to the one on the Togiak. I found it to be very comfortable and easy to adjust while sitting in it.

Over all I rate the Cumbie way over the Togiak. It is a better quality build and certain features just make better sense.

Oh...and no maiden voyage is complete unless a fish is caught! I had four on the hook that managed to get some air and spit my lure back at me. Three very hard, nice strikes that missed. But one of them sealed the Cumberland Tube as a lucky fishing craft:

Thanks for the report Bigfish!

Congratz on breaking her in.

I use 4 plano boxes for storage on my Cumby.
One 3700 on the bottom and a 3600 on top of that fit in each pocket easily.
I also keep a 5 gallon bucket behind the seat.

I criss cross the straps on the back for carrying the tube. Interestingly, there is a right and wrong way.

Howdy fellow float tubers! I am new to the forum but have been float tubing for 20 or 30 years. Just bought a Cumberland after 4 other Cadis models all of which were donut models. I just love this new tube and can't say enough good about it. I would be out in it today except it is raining here in Missouri and got soaked last time out. It is great to see the modifications people have made to their tubes and am planning to put a fish finder on mine soon, any suggestions? I also plan on doing the mod on the apron.

Thank you to the people founding this forum, I am enjoying it very much.
