11 insane pool floats you need for 2017, because it’s swimming season at last

It’s been a crazy year. Therefore, summer 2017 needs be about big, HUGE fun. Fun like you’ve never had before. Standard donut pool floats just don’t suffice anymore. Especially not in this era of Instagram. Because if it’s not impressive there, it’s not impressive anywhere.

And we’re not just talking floating loungers. Nah, we’re talking floating bars and shoot-out games. Your pool party (PP) deserves better than just some lazy, half-asleep sunbathers. All of these items are available online, so place your order, and get set to be the most IG-able PP OG around.
