GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., July 11, 2018

Leading lifestyle and product design manufacturer, Big Joe®, a Comfort Research brand, has launched a heavy-duty pool float called Big Joe Island with a firmer structural design to enable it to serve as floating table, docking station or heavy duty personal float. Summer’s must-have float for the ultimate water experience is available for purchase directly from Big Joe at www.BuyBigJoe.com and other online retailers for a suggested retail price of $149.

Leading lifestyle and product design manufacturer, Big Joe®, a Comfort Research brand, has launched a heavy-duty pool float called Big Joe Island.

 

Big Joe Island is made from Comfort Research’s proprietary Orahh® molded-core technology—the same expanded polyethylene core that is used in the company’s bean bag chairs. It is waterproof, mold-resistant and extremely durable. In fact, the Island can keep up to 250 pounds buoyant all day long without absorbing an ounce of water.

“Our new Big Joe Island falls somewhere between individual floatation devices and enormous floats,” said Matt Jung, FABulator at Comfort Research. “It’s stiffer in design (in a good way) so it has a ton of functional flexibility. I like to think of it as the perfect summer fun machine, and I should know because I did a lot of personal testing to make sure we got it right.”

Guaranteed to attract a crowd to any summer party whether at the backyard pool or shoreline, the Big Joe Island features holes at each corner to hold drinks, connect to other floats or tie to boats or docks.

“The Island doesn’t absorb sand or water, so it’s not a spongy mess at the end of your beach day,” said Chip George, Ambassador of Awesome at Comfort Research. “It’s kind of like the heavy-duty SUV of the water float category, only way better for the environment.”

The Big Joe Island is made domestically and it is 100 percent recyclable.
