This mat provides a great night's sleep and quick, easy inflation
Comfortable enough for car camping and backpacking, this is a versatile and packable mattress

While not as comfortable as a foam mattress, it is surprisingly insulating and rolls into a very small package
A good overall self-inflating mattress that is thinner, and less cushioned, than some of the competition
With soft fabric and some insulation, this mattress is warmer than other air mattresses and nicer to sleep on
Best Buy Award
Bouncy and lacking insulation, this mattress is easy to use and affordable
