Catch Some Air

Watching this rapid inflation sleep pad fill up looks like magic, but it’s just science. (Watch our video to see it in action—we’ll wait.) The specially designed valve creates a mini air stream as you blow, pulling in surrounding air to help the mattress inflate far faster than from your breath alone.

Catch Some Air

Watching this rapid inflation sleep pad fill up looks like magic, but it’s just science. (Watch our video to see it in action—we’ll wait.) The specially designed valve creates a mini air stream as you blow, pulling in surrounding air to help the mattress inflate far faster than from your breath alone.

The valve has an invertible release, which means it keeps the air in as it inflates. It also makes deflating super fast, letting you flatten it out and roll it up for storage.

Ryan Frayne created the AirPad 2+ after wasting precious beach time trying to inflate a swim float. This sparked his idea to harness the wind to do the hard work. You don’t need a pump or electricity. And there’s no need to put your mouth directly on a plastic valve.

There are built-in straps to transform this mattress into a cushy seat—great for camping trips, picnics, or just lounging in the yard. Wherever you use the AirPad 2+, the amazing inflating—and deflating—act is part of the fun.
