The Instaflator

rated 4 of 5 stars Simple, easy to use, human powered tool for filling sleep pads or other inflatable gear. Packs light and small, no batteries required. Would probably work to inflate a pack raft, but definitely a great way to save some breath when making camp at the end of the day. My first reaction when someone here on Trailspace posted a link to The Instaflator was to laugh. Then I got to thinking about the advantages of not having to blow up my sleep pad manually and the idea didn't seem so silly. I ordered two… Full review

Exped Schnozzel

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is a great multipurpose backpacking accessory for use with Exped sleeping Pads. Worth every penny of the cost. I bought one of these to go with my DownMat 7 mat. I had to buy a small adaptor so the connectors of this bag would fit onto the built-in pump of the Downmat 7. You may ask, if it already has a built-in pump why would you buy this accessory and add weight and bulk to your setup? Two reasons, ease and speed of inflation and dry bag stuff sack for my down mummy bag. First the pump function. Full review

Exped Schnozzel

rated 5 of 5 stars Easy to use. At the beginning I had a hard time using it, but with some practice my DownMat UL 7 pad was ready in less than 3 minutes. You just need to get the "technique" and then to repeat it. The pump came with my Exped pad. On my second trip in the high mountains (10,000 feet and more) two of the sides of the ending part, which goes to the pad, just separated and the hole appeared large about an inch. I was supprised, because it was new and used only once before. I still managed to use the… Full review

Therm-a-Rest NeoAir AirTap Pump Kit

rated 4 of 5 stars A simple and effective, high-volume inflation device. Overpriced for what it is, but cheaper than the alternatives. A relatively inexpensive, lightweight, and simple solution to the pad inflation problem. The kit comes with a 50 x 75 cm (20 x 30 in) plastic bag that can hold maybe 10 liters (just guessing). To put the device together you just poke a hole through the bag from the inside using the beveled end of the hard plastic piece, then slide the rubber tube over it from the outside so that the… Full review

Big Agnes Pumphouse

rated 3 of 5 stars The BA Pumphouse is too low-volume to be a good inflation device, and that property is the main feature that differentiates it from any other lightweight, waterproof, roll-top stuff sack. It does, however, have an unintended use -- it makes a good solar water heater. Although it is listed as just a stuff sack in the headline here on TS, it is really intended for use as a mattress inflater, with the suggested stuff sack and pillow as secondary uses. The bottom of sack has a little nozzle on it that… Full review

Therm-a-Rest NeoAir Mini Pump

rated 5 of 5 stars Lightweight, compact, great for air core mattresses when you have breathing issues. I picked this up when I picked up my Air Core mattress for winter camping. I have asthma and dreaded blowing it up by mouth. This performs great. All you do is start it and work on setting up everything else and come back and the mattress is filled. Full review

Therm-a-Rest NeoAir Mini Pump

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Weighs only 2.5oz with two AAA batteries. Inflates my large XTherm moisture free, to a perfect sleeping density in two minutes flat. About the size of a D battery with a very simple design. No more huffing and puffing while avoiding filling my expensive air mat with moisture which will take its toll over time. Been using this for the last year now. I'm going ultralight and counting ounces, but still pack this because of its small size, light weight, and energy it conserves after a long day of hiking.

Camp-Tek Microburst

rated 1 of 5 stars I have two different brand new Big Agnes pads. The Microburst did no more than add air nowhere near firm. They suggested I send it back and wait for their opinion. Big money for a product with bad support .after 2emails to them After trying this on brand new air mattresses — one dual core, one insulated air core — neither mattress filled enough to do more than seeing its outline. Nowhere near their claims to be firm enough to sleep on. After several emails to them they suggest I return it and… Full review

Therm-a-Rest NeoAir AirTap Pump Kit

rated 4 of 5 stars Will fit Big Agnes valves. Makes inflating your mattress pad easy and quick. I am happy to say that it fits the Big Agnes valve, but it is a tight fit (Therm-a-Rest valves are smaller). Plastic could be slightly thinner to save weight. Cost is high for a piece of plastic, two pieces of rubber, and a plastic bag.  It should have included adhesive or stick pads, and maybe a plastic clip that could be used to clamp down on the rubber nozzle. I bought this kit to use with my Big Agnes Q-Core pad, 25x78x3.5,… Full review
