Self-inflating Air Mats by Fox Outfitters are carefully designed for serious campers and backpackers. Crafted on a foundation of time-tested materials and components, our self-inflating mattresses are lightweight, compressible and now softer than ever, making them a perfect travel companion.
These light and versatile foam core pads are great for cold temperatures or those looking for a comfortable and lightweight self-inflating pad. We’ve taken outdoor living to a new level of comfort by covering our mats with a lightweight fabric that’s amazingly durable. This weight reduction improves upon an already portable mattress that uses innovative die-cut foams to provide comfort and support where you need it most.
Our designs incorporate premium fabrics that include an internal polyurethane coating and durable air valves for years of use. Each pad is individually inflated and tested. Whether you're out for a weekend with the family or on a solo trip through challenging terrain, our self-inflating air mats will help you stay comfortable all night.
This pad is very light and compact. Doesn't self inflate that great. I had to go ahead and blow it up to get it aired up enough. It does deflate with some pushing fairly easily. It packs well. Didn't provide as much padding as I would like but you can't pack a mattress with you. Overall it performs well.
Came right on time, no surprises and exactly what I expected. I had never ordered a sleeping pad before but upon trying it out I realized I do not want a mummy shape. I am 5'10" and fit fine, just a little more narrow than I would like, I tend to sprawl a bit. Seeing as how I will be sleeping on it for 3 months and not carrying it much, I decided to go with a bit of a bulkier one that promises more width and about an inch more thickness. My room mate/travel buddy liked this one though (she is smaller and less picky than I) and she will be keeping it. I like that it folds in half before rolling and compacts fairly small, about the size of a regulation NFL football or a bit bigger.
If I have any troubles with the durability I will come back and edit.
Product works well, but is a bit small. Also does not pack up as tight as I was expecting. Still packs smaller than some other versions.

For it only being an inch and a half it is very comfortable. Plus the self inflation aspect is great. I hate blowing up a pad at the end of a long hike at elevation.

Just used this mattress for 2 weeks camping/hiking with my Venture crew. Very comfortable, light weight, and packs up much smaller than my old one. I let one of my Crew members use it a couple of nights and she said she would purchase one.

It is light weight, and comfortable. I had to give it 4 or 5 blows to get it fully inflated to where it was comfortable for me, but that was the first use. I had just inflated it and left it under my couch for a bit to see if that helps the foam expand fully and inflate a little more during next use

Love this little guy, I only tested it in basement and backyard and i haven't a chance to go camping/hiking yet. I have the Fox Outfitters Comfort Series Self Inflating Mattress and it feels firmer than the ultralight. That being said i have back issues so a little firmness goes along way for me. This is great if weight is an issue. It also comes with a carry sack and a patch kit. If its built like the Fox products its built to last
Comfort series = 3.1pnds
Lightweight series 2.2pnds

For the price not a bad pad. Compared to other pads its not as light as other ultralight pads. My pad weighs 2 pounds 2 ounces so about a 9 ounce drop from the Lightweight pad. To trim the weight off the lightweight pad they rounded it off and put diamond cuts throughout the pad they also switched from a brass valve to a plastic valve. I have no idea what the R value is on this pad however for a summer camping trips it shouldn't be an issue. For a lightweight pad for the price you can't go wrong with this pad.

This pad was comfortable to sleep on and compares well to some of the other more expensive pads in my collection. It is made of lighter material than a heavier Fox Outfitters pad I own that's more suited for car camping or guests. It could be easy to roll off of if you move around a lot at night because of its mummy shape design. It comes with a repair kit and stuff sack. I see myself using this pad when I want something light and compact . Going to try it in a camping hammock soon, it's shape and size may work well in that application.
I got this mat a couple weeks ago for backpacking and it worked well and is super light. I took it from the packaging when I received and followed all of the care instructions on how to get it inflating on its own. Before I left on my trip I tested it and it inflated all the way, fast. When I set up my camp the first night, however, it only inflated enough to be almost flat. The mat is small enough to only need a few good blows to inflate so it wasn't a big issue. It slept great. I imagine that it didn't inflate correctly because of how could it was when I inflated it. I hope it gets better over time. For the price I couldn't expect anything better.
