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.
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.

Took this mattress on a 5 day hike and found it to be super comfortable and held its air all night.

I received my mattress, and couldn't wait to try it. The first time I used it, I was slightly taken aback as it did not want to self inflate. I took it out of the plastic bag, opened the valve, unrolled it, and waited...it slightly inflated and that was it. I rolled it around and squeezed/ manipulated it, to no avail. I blew into the valve as you would do a standard air mattress, inflating it to a satisfactory condition. It was not difficult to inflate, nor was it difficult to deflate after use. I was hoping after the first use it would perform better, and it did, as it self inflated much better.
The little mattress is comfortable for what it is, light/ packable, and seemed very durable. It is sized well for most people, and gets your tired old body off the ground a bit. I wish the stuff sack was a little longer as it would allow easier stuffing and would carry better if it could be carried in a longer, thinner condition. This is simply a personal observation, and not major boo boo of the part of the manufacturer.
The quality seems good, and I am pleased overall. I would not hesitate to buy another if I needed more than one.

I received my mattress quickly and as promised. I couldn't wait to try it and compare it to some other self-inflating mattress I have owned and use. The first time you use it some help is needed to inflate, same with all the mattress I’ve used. It was not difficult to inflate, just a couple of puffs and you’re good to go.
This mattress is comfortable, light, and packable, seemed very well made. It is sized okay for backpacking and perfect for car camping. The stuff sack could be little bigger, but it gets the job done.
The quality seems good, and I am pleased overall when comparing to other brands I own.
I’m giving it 4 stars and not five because it’s not quite as good as other mattress I own, but is a third of the cost in comparison. Also I almost never give anything a 5 stare rating before months of use. If it cost more I would give it 3 stars but as it is I'd say the price is right. I’d like it better if it would compress down further so it could be carried in pack but it’s not going to happen at this price range, but It carried well on the outside of the pack. This is still perfect for car camping at a walk in campsite. Good value for what you get. Worth the money and I might get 1 more. I have a family of five backpackers.
Well this performed mostly as advertised but did require a little air from my lungs. The rest is my fault. The regular size is not long enough or wide enough for a 5-10 man. Width would only be suitable for a small thin frame. This is for backpacking not tent camping. Go for something larger for the tent.
