Rated 5 out of 5 by middletennessee a great night's sleep!
The last time I spent a month in my daughter's family apartment in Nogent-sur-Marne, France, I thought I'd die of sleep deprivation by the end of week 2. Hence the Camp Futon bought as a result of all the rave reviews. Amazing--no muss, no fuss, fills itself, and is actually totally comfortable for this 105 lb woman of a certain age who is a back sleeper. I'm leaving it here for other guests who make the trek here to admire the latest addition to the family.....

Perfect sleep pad!! Ordered two ex-large mostly for the extra width as I sleep on my side. Used them last week tent camping and was completely satisfied! Only time you feel the ground is if you put hard pressure on any point, such as when getting up with your elbow or knee. Otherwise, was as good as my bed at home. (We are not lightweights at 182 and 245 lbs) With the wide, even when on my side, I was always fully on the pad. At night were low 50's and I felt no cool from underneath. Stayed nice and warm. First time inflating took the most breaths. Second time was effortless, only few additional breaths required. Works as stated, just follow the directions. To deflate, I personally roll up the pad with the valves open, then close them, unroll it and re-roll with valves closed (or it will start inflating again) till get close to end then open valves to get last bit out. Doesn't take that long and fits back in bag easier. Also, two of these take up very little tent space. In our four man Coleman we still had a nice size isle in middle for use and entry/exit. Would not have been the case with air mattress.
I feel like this product will last us a very long time.

I bought this for my son for his Boundary Waters winter camping trips. He was thrilled at how well it inflated and the thickness of it. He laid it on the hard wood floor and couldn't even feel it. Also loved how it had a "foam" layer for comfort. Rolled up nicely and was fairly easy to pack back in it's carrier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by wlybgr1 This is camping?
This Futon sleeping pad is great for these old bones. I graduated from the one inch Thermarests I've used for the past thirty years without any problems and am really looking forward to many years with this purchase. I have already slept on it several times and find it to be more comfortable than I have ever been. The non-slip sleeping surface is a real plus especially when you wake up to find yourself still on the pad. The dual self inflating valves save a lot of time and energy. To roll it up when you're done you just open those valves, take your time, listen to the air escaping, roll it tight from the foot right up to the valves, push the valves closed, then slide it right in the sack. No problem!!

I bought this for occasional camping but mostly for Thanksgiving weekends. Our whole family travels to Virginia so sleeping arrangements are kind of difficult. I love having my own comfortable bed that's so compact. The bag for it is snug but it's not impossible, I've never gotten frustrated to the point of not using it. I love that the pad self-inflates and is very well made. To me it's definitely worth the money

Just a really nice, comfortable mat. Inflates enough to keep me off the ground. Doesn't suck all the warmness out of you, like some air mats do.

I got the extra-large size. It is comfortable and I found it warm on a recent chilly night. I would definitely recommend this pad. The only cons are minor: I found the two valves a little clumsy to use but they do work; the stuff sack bag is too small once the pad has been inflated. I will take care of that problem by enlarging it by sewing in an extra panel.

I have been camping in the mountains and canoe camping along rivers for over thirty years. It seems that the ground has gotten harder over the years. I decided to upgrade my mattress and read all the LL Bean reviews on the Camp Futon. As a result, I purchased one and what a difference in the comfort. I have not had an uncomfortable night?s sleep since.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JedG comfy, quiet, as good as air mattress
The camp futon is as comfy as an air mattress, and certainly lighter and less bulky. However, it would definitely not be ideal for long hikes, as it's heavier than the thinner pathfinder sleeping pads. Best for car camping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hwink Xl self inflating air mattress
Just took camping. More than just comfortable . The nights were cool and we were insulated from the ground. Didn't feel the rocks under the tent. Wonderful! We had previously used two other brand 3.5 mats but they ended up with holes after 3 years. This seems better made with sealed Seams and a kit for any leaks.
