Life Altering!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Every once in a while I find a gear item that is actually life altering, and it's usually a small, unassuming item. After 20 years of blowing up thermarests, it has definitely gotten a little old. This little mini pump has definitely changed my life, and I don't want to be without it ever again! It's really small, so I won't have to. While setting up the tent (or reorganizing the car, depending on where you're bivying), just lay out the thermarests (I generally have to do 2, which is way too much) and get the pump going. I usually finish them off with a few breaths to get them really firm, and can't believe how easy it is compared to how not easy it used to be... I often drop the pump and make the lid fall off, but it goes back on well fortunately (it doesn't break when it falls off, just pops off the small tabs it sits on). I keep it in the stuff bag of one of the thermarests so I don't forget it. If you use thermarests, you should buy this thing immediately.

No more lightheadedness.

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I usually camp with my girlfriend, therefore I have to blow up two pads. The Klymit Static V pad that I have is fine, give or take 14 breaths and it'll be filled. But my Therm-a-rest Neo Air pad... takes 36 sometimes 40 breaths to be filled. After doing that a couple times, I realized I needed a better solution. In comes this mini pump.

The pump is small, which is great. When I first powered it on and tried to inflate my Neo Air, it was slow... going on 7 minutes and it wasn't even 1/2 filled. But that was my fault though, I shouldn't have used old batteries. After I put in some fresh batteries, this thing was roaring.

Therm-a-rest's claim that the pump will inflate a standard Neo Air in just three minutes is a little off, but I don't mind. I timed the inflation process and in 3 minutes 50 seconds, air was flowing back out of the pump which indicates that it wasn't going to go any further (honestly, air was flowing back out a little earlier than that, but I was slow to hit the timer, oh wells). The pad needed only one good breath or two breaths to be completely firm.

I am not nitpicking about the 50 seconds. I am thankful that I no longer have to blow into pads until I felt faint, dizzy and lightheaded. I'm never going camping without this mini pump!

On another note, I used this pump for my Neo Air pillows and it took almost no time for those to be inflated. I know, I know, those pillows don't take much to inflate manually in the first place... but just a note for the lazy people.

No more lightheadedness.

Neat pump

Works well and small size is a big plus

Nifty, and lightweight

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I chose this little thing over a "pump sack" and good old fashioned lung power. I'm a small guy, with lungs to match. After a long day, the last thing I want to do is huff and puff to inflate my mat until I'm lightheaded. This pump takes care of business in just a few minutes, and battery life seems to be great. It fits easily in the extra space inside the NeoAir Trekker (regular size) stuff sack if you're worried about keeping it dry.

I am pretty happy with it.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I go backpacking a lot with my wife and we have two large size (25x77) neo air pads. This thing is great. It takes about 3 minutes to inflate each pad to about 90 percent. So far I got about 10 inflates out of my set of rechargeables (eneloops) and it is still going strong.

Works great though you can get by without it. I think the pad might last longer with it, since you are not blowing moisture into it.

One thing that I wish I could do is reverse the flow and deflate the pad. I don't think that would with current generation of Thermo-a-rest. Actually, it would be even better if Neo Air had a deflate valve, like most of Exped pads.

Verdict is still out

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

It has been hit or miss so far with this little pump, sometimes it works for me, sometimes it doesn't. I often have to remove the batteries and reinsert them to get it to work. However, worth the money and it saves you time in the long run.

Great for many uses!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I have just recently found this pump. When I used to blow up my pad manually, I almost always get light headed. Now with this pump I am completely willing to carry the extra weight.

Therm-a -rest NeoAir Mini Pump

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought this mini pump with my NeoAir X Therm Sleeping Pad. When I first opened the box I thought, WTF ???? This is the greatest invention since the NeoAir X Therm Pad. I used this device for 15 days on a Pacific Coast Highway Bicycle Tour. I took extra batteries because I figured This thing would suck the juice out of a battery in no time flat. I was wrong... Pump worked great, batteries are still going strong, I'll take this little sucker, 2.5 ounces, everywhere me and the X Therm go. Great product, fills the pad to just right firmness, for me..

Can you use this pump to deflate the mattress?

Responded on

Howdy Thop, thanks for the question.
I read over the instruction manual for this unit and it does not appear to have deflating powers.

"Deflating powers"?? Theoretically, when you open the valve and roll up the pad, the air goes out pretty quickly. Certainly faster than the pump could do it, even if it was designed to do so.

Although, my ex wife had deflating powers...ego and otherwise.

Nice try

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

The little pump is awesome and if I had the right fittings I might have been pleasantly surprised. We ended up using the noisy tire pump instead. The pump seems capable , you might get lucky.

Saves Time

I use this with my Thermarest pads as well as my Big Agnes pads. It saves me a lot of time and light headedness when I need to blow up pads while setting up camp. I just pop this on the valve and let it do its job while I set up the tent. The only complaint I have is for the a really firm pad it won't get it there as the fan is not powerful enough. Not a huge problem as after it blows up the pad I just give it a puff or two from my own lungs and its as firm as I want it to be.

I have a abt 20yrs old therm a rest(orange color) is this same size valve with neo air?

Best Answer Responded on

The old Camprest. Isn't it still pretty much self-inflating for you? The nozzle on the mini pump is rubber, and even though they're different types of valves, they are the same diameter, so it will work. I confirmed this with Cascade Design's customer support. As a matter of fact, this will work with all recent Thermarest mattresses, not just the NeoAirs.

Handy Dandy

I just used this new pump last week while on a river trip. It seemed like it would be whimppy but it worked well and was sooooo much better then blowing up the air mattress as I had to do in the past. It is over priced for what it is. But you will be a happy camper that you can set up your camp with out the stress of blowing up the neo air. Which I love,love love. It is just a little exhausting to blow up. This pump solves the problem.I would recommend it.

Dont let size fool you

This little guy is awesome. Normally after a long day on the trail at high elevation, I would have to sit and huff and puff to blow up my neoair L, getting lightheaded in the process. Now, I just pop this little dude on there, and in 3 minutes my pad is at a pretty comfortable pressure. Simple, easy, and crazy light. Well worth the money!
