- Q & A
Never leave home without it
Don't blow a bunch of moist air into your pad, save your lungs and increase the longevity of your pad.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Do your lungs hold up to 40L of air? I didnt think so. With this Pump Sack you can inflate your Therm-a-rest pad much faster than you could by mouth.
I found this "pump sack" to be extremely helpful. Blowing up a sleeping pad after a full day of backpacking was something I never looked forward to, but I am able to get the job done in less than half the time with this. Like others have said, it is a little too big to be used as a stuff sack. It probably took me about 3-4 nights of use before I was able to use it efficiently.
Saves your breath!

does what it is advertised to do! A bit too big for a stuff sack though...
awesome... watch it work
I'm wary of blowing my moist breath into my Neoair mattresses. A plastic bag with the AirTap Pump works fine, but this 2.7 ounce sack is a much better solution. If you're an ounce shaver, you probably won't want an extra three ounces, but both my gf and I will carry a Neoair and it's good to know that I'm not blowing humid mold-fodder into my Xlite. This is the best solution yet to inflating a pricey Xlite or Xtherm. Two to three bagfuls of air takes care of a standard Xlite.
Will this work with the Big Agnes Q Core SL sleeping pad?
Would this work with the Term-a-Rest Trail Lite?
The Trail Lite is a self inflating pad so you wont need this as a pump but you could still get away with it as a stuff sack if you really wanted to.
Has anyone tried this with the Exped...
Has anyone tried this with the Exped UL7?
I don't see how you could use it with the UL7, as they have very different valves. The Exped side is a round hole, and the pump sack side is also a round hole...Exped sells their own "Schnozzel" pump bag-get that instead.
