Inflatable / February 11, 2019 / Zurie Chandonnet
Inflatable costumes are lightweight and cool thus the wearer would not have a difficult time carrying it around for hours. There is also no need for the person inside the costume to worry about dripping sweat and losing his or her breath-the wearer will bring with him a fan and an equally lightweight power pack to keep the costume inflated. Thus it will be entirely comfortable to be inside the inflated suit and interaction with audiences will be more genuine and heartfelt. The inflatable balloons on the other hand are durable balloons that incorporate a companys brand pr product catch images.
But as with most things in life things change. In the last five years most U.S. "manufacturers" have thrown in the towel and are no longer making their own Inflatables. Theyre now importing China made Inflatables and passing them off as "Made in the U.S.A." In addition a new breed of internet phonies are posing as "manufacturers" and selling "China made Inflatables" or acting as a distributor for some other inflatable company importing from China. The fact of the matter is there are only a few manufacturers left that still build their entire product line of Inflatables right here in the good old U.S.A. Its more expensive but far superior in durability. And yes in spite of what you have been told there is a big difference in Safety Quality Craftsmanship.
If youve owned one of the older cheaper style inflatable boats you know you also have to invest in repair patches or a roll of duct tape. New high quality inflatable kayaks are changing peoples impressions of inflatable boats. New inflatable crafts are made from puncture and abrasion resistant rubber often reinforced with polyester fabric. This is much stronger than the PVC material used for most cheap inflatable boats. Under normal circumstances it is quite unlikely that you would puncture these new rubber materials. Even if you did most inflatable kayaks have at least three separate air chambers.
