Technical Information

The best way to deflate the mattress is to "pinch" open the "non-return" valve, inside the mattress, with one hand and roll up the mattress with the other. Once the pressure in the mattress is reduced, thanks to release of air, the "non-return" valve will no longer lock and you'll be able to deflate the mattress easily by folding it with both hands.

Product test
Sleep comfort, also called "postural comfort", is defined by our R&D centre. All our mattresses are subjected to mechanical tests, to assess their performance and durability and ensure you enjoy a good night's sleep and an excellent recovery. We also carry out numerous field tests in real-life conditions.

Stockage tips
The simplest way to fold your mattress without damaging it is to fold it in two lengthways and then roll it up.

Great value mattress
Used for More than 1 year
I have spent 20+ nights on this mattress bike packing without a problem. It is easy to inflate and deflate and rolls up into nice low weight compact roll. Only complaint is that it could be 1 panel wider.
Comfy, light, well priced, easy to inflate
Could be 1 panel wider
Brilliant Backpacking Mat

lightweight and very comfortable, we have spent many week sleeping on ours
Light and comfy, but impossible to pack back
Used for 1 week or less
It’s light, keeps warm and is soft enough for a night’s sleep outside on stony ground.
But deflating it is a two man job and even so, nearly impossible to roll back into the original compression bag. The frustration you get high in the mountains when you have to depart quickly is just not worth it.
Will buy another brand.
The best, why don't they produce it anymore?

I miss this product so much, I have back problems and for me travelling is almost impossible, most beds are too hard for me - finally I had found a travel solution with this mattress and some memory foam, but then after 3+ years of using it constantly one punctured (it was even my fault, because the mattress even if soft and light is quite sturdy) I had one extra one but it would be nice to be able to buy some more to stock
Really light and comfortable
Used for 3 to 6 months
A good night's sleep with this! Packs really small which is a bonus for touring. As some others have said it's a tad more comfortable if not inflated 100%. Only downside is the choice of valve which makes deflating a pain.
Air mattress

Excellent size and the best I have used so far
Lightweight n comfy
Used for 1 week or less
I've just had one of the best night's sleep at scout camp for years. I could be a little wider & you need a layer between it & you for warmth. . but most long time campers do that anyway. ⛺
Great bit of kit!
I've used this for a year and it hasn't let me down yet. It packs small and light, really easy to inflate, I've never been cold, surprisingly robust as it hasn't punctured even when sleeping on scree etc. ,unlike self-inflating or plain foam roll mats it allows your shoulders and hips to sink in without touching the ground which is good if you want sleep on your side, once you perfect packing it away it's easy and quick(ish). Only downfall is that it's quite narrow and I usually end up half on, half off it and so it could do with 2 more strips.
A piece of comfort
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
After using a Thermarest type of mat and feeling my hips on the ground I decided to give this a try. Fantastic. Much more comfortable. Perhaps slightly less insulation, but I'm not sure of this.
Comfort. Ease of inflation and deflation.
Small, comfortable, lightweight
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
A family of five used these throughout our cycling tour of the Loire this past summer. They're great. Really comfortable. We found not inflating to max pressure was preferable to pumping the air in and bursting our lungs in the process. It's a bit of a faff to deflate. But rolling it up twice to get rid of the excess air makes a real difference. Bit fiddly to get back into the pouch but squeezing the air out makes that manageable. We slept on solid grass and benefited from a bit of insulation and a lot of padding. They show no signs of wear and tear. A little pricey at £30 but well worth the money. And so much smaller than the self inflating mattresses that we've used before.
