EASY ASSEMBLY/DISMANTLING
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.

Used for 2 to 8 weeks
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.

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.

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

I am used to the self inflating mats and don't find them that comfortable so fancied a change. Looked at the Exped mats but the cost was prohibitive.

Came in a tiny pouch. It is not self inflating but only takes a few puffs to get this filled up nice and firm.

It does not look much when inflated at only a few cm thick but it is very comfortable.

Works really well for side sleeping. Spent three very comfy nights.

Deflating was a bit of a faff as you have to hold the valve open to deflate, but once you get the hang of this its not too bad, certainly not enough to prevent you buying it.
Well recommended.
Comfort, Size, Price, quick to inflate
Deflating is a bit of a faff
Deflate in two hours
Seemed very good the first few nights but then for no reason the mattress was deflating during the night and I had to inflat it up every two hours. No holes in it, I checked. Just poor fabric quality I guess. Disappointing.
