I bought the Ryder for long term play. I got it and used it right away. Not even a couple minutes into walking around, the base started to fold and sucking inside me. I caught it before it did, but definitely made me lose my confidence in the toy. I love it and it was comfortable but I did not want to risk it. So I looked at buying the bootie to try since it seems the base is longer and firmer. Has anyone had any experience with both and can confirm that the bootie would be a better choice? Thank you!
