Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Valerie Love the tub
We love this tub ... it is a heavier construction than many other flimsy tubs. It is higher than most, so you can take a nice bath with deep water. It looks sharp!
We have had a problem after installation (the contractor followed Kohler's installation instructions) ... the floor of the tub squeaks when we move in the tub while taking a shower. He has tried to reinforce it, without a change in the squeak. We are waiting for a response from Kohler (we wrote a letter).

Great Product. Well packed and shipped. Easy to install with plenty of room on the flange for mounting it to the wall studs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PDXKari Love this Tub!
We just remodeled two bathrooms in our home and put an Archer 60" x 30" right hand drain soaking tub with Apron in our main floor, small and narrow bathroom. There is info on this site that says this doesn't exist but we have one installed at this very moment so ask around for this if it's what you need. We replaced an old, shallow cast iron tub (that had to be sledge hammered to pieces to be removed) and we are so happy with this choice (it took MONTHS to make our tub decisions!). I finally can take a bath and have water cover my torso while reclining! Our Archer apron has a more recessed look (see photos) vs. the raised detailing of this model so I'm guessing we have an older model (we purchased summer 2015)? But the classic, clean look is a great fit for our home and a good match for the simple Kohler cast iron Bellwether 66" tub we put in our larger 2nd bathroom. There are no arm rests in this model which is a plus given the narrow size. You do need a special overflow part given the cool horizontal design (which also allows a deeper fill) so make sure you order that part as well, for installation! Great tub and so glad we found this model!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jb Double check dimensions
The dimensions listed on the Home Depot sight are not-correct. The tub height is 19" not 15" as stated. This error caused some problems when ordering the tile. If you want accurate specs I recommend downloading directly from Kholer. Tub is going in this week - hope there are no more surprises.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MLMH12 Very disappointed
After much research and trusting the Kohler brand, we purchased the Archer 5 foot soaker tub, when cleaning it, I noticed two cracks towards the back of the tub. This is a horrible defect and removing it and replacing it is going to be a nightmare since we have installed marble. What are we to do?
I see that obviously this tub is a defective product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RKA Tub is defective don't buy it!
We purchased and installed this tub almost one year ago. This morning while cleaning it I noticed two cracks toward the back of the tub. The warranty only covers replacement of tub not installation and who wants to do two bathroom renovations in a year! The tub feels flimsy underfoot and was installed with support under the rails as instructed.
I read additional reviews this morning and others who purchased the tub around the same timeframe are having the same issue. I purchased a Kohler expecting a quality product - it is far from that!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by pmw Bottom of tub is small
I know this bathtub got many good reviews and that is why I purchased it to replace an old cast iron bathtub. Now though, I was surprised that the measurement of the width of the inside bottom of the tub is only about 17"-18" , 4"-5" smaller than the tub I have now. I want to return it but the remodeler will be coming soon and I don't think I can wait for a new one to be delivered. Very disappointed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AML Don't forget to buy the custom drain!!
My husband owns a general construction company and were a bit blindsided when we opened the box and discovered an odd shaped-drain slit. If you order this tub, then you MUST also buy the custom drain!
