Seattle Sports' Self-Rescue Paddle Float is one of the biggest and best outrigger self rescue floats on the market. It has dual air chambers as a safety back-up - if a valve breaks or air chamber leaks, you have a built in spare air chamber and valve on the other side (with single chamber floats you need to carry two paddle floats in order to have a back-up). It has a strap and buckle at the open end which can be used to secure the float to the paddle (Wrap the webbing strap around the paddle shaft twice and buckle the ends together). Be ware of paddle floats that rely on friction to hold them in place! A tether is included with this paddle float, and it has twist valves which are easier to operate in cold water than paddle floats with spring loaded check-valves.

For outrigger self rescue paddle floats, size does matter -- bigger is better, and this is one of the biggest paddle floats on the market.
