The Snugpak Base Camp Ops Air Mat with Built-In Foot Pump packs down to almost nothing. It has a valve for manual inflation but it also has a built in foot pump where you can pump it up quickly and easily with just the tap of your foot. It has a non-slip bottom so the mat does not slide around easily. Light and compact, it comes with its own stuff sack and repair kit.

Non-insulated so for colder temps keep that in mind and plan accordingly

Review :

Very nice product. Good quality

Lightweight for the size

Large; good width and length

Nice storage stuff sack

materials are soft and comfortable; pleasant to have against your skin.

Good solid Valve. Not Cheap or flimsy like some.

Easy to inflate thanks to the pump. Also very easy to release the air and fold it back up

Pump works very well; can be done by stepping on it or by using your hands.

Stuff sack is perfectly sized.

When inflated, it is nice and comfortable.

Thanks to the non-slip bottom this pad does a great job of staying in place. Good thinking Snugpak

Thickness :

Oddity 1 : Didn’t receive a repair kit with my T&E unit

To Sum It Up :

This is a great sleeping pad for people would want a seriously easy to use pad. Super easy to inflate, large, long, comfortable. Great for a side sleeper

This is an initial review based on 3 nights out with this pad.  If anything changes with my further testing an additional video will follow.

Pro Tip : Easily place the included retention strap around the pad, grab with index finger and pull around.. Nice and easy
