Rated 5 out of 5áby KaeB Super Comfortable
Spent a week camping on the rocky coast of Maine. No aches and pains like I usually have sleeping on the "ground". Might even be more comfortable than my bed!!! Husband has used it for 2 weeks this summer. Absolutely no aches or pains.

Rated 3 out of 5áby ddsib comfortable but difficult
This is a plush, comfortable mattress. As stated in other reviews, it is extremely difficult to deflate and even more difficult to fit into storage bag. Must be rolled up with blue side/slick side out so it will slide into bag.
I am not sure I will keep it.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Melracey This Pad Rocks
I borrowed one from a friend last summer and it delivered on it's job so well!! I don't sleep easily on the ground or out of my own bed anymore like I used to. I used to be an Outward Bound instructor and sleep on a sliver of a thermarest but not anymore. I ended up on a long thermarest this summer and it was awful!!! This pad is the pad for you if you don't sleep well in uncomfortable situations and you NEED your sleep! It's so thick that it can be put on uneven ground, roots, etc and you won't feel it. It is big so be advised! Not a backpacking pad.

Rated 5 out of 5áby NYCMainer Life-changing blow-up mattress
I'm not quite kidding, in that having a blow-up mattress that is actually comfortable can open up all sorts of opportunities. We have used ours in our NYC apt for guests, visiting friends without enough beds, in hotel rooms where a family of 4 doesn't quite fit, etc. We did even take it camping once ... I recommend getting the extra large, because anyone can sleep on this, including a large grown man; one friend who is well over 6' tall spent several days on it and found it comfortable. We have two, and one did start to leak a bit, but LL Bean replaced it.

Rated 4 out of 5áby BrBo Comfortable but...
This mattress inflates very easily with just a twist of a knob. It is very comfortable and seems high quality. It's almost like sleeping on a bed. I can roll it up and put it back in th bag without much trouble. It's not too bouncy.
The big negative is that it's too narrow. It's a little akward to sleep on because of the width. Sleeping on my back my arms rest on the ground. Sleeping on my side I feel like I might roll off. I'm 5'11" 195lbs. If the it was 5" wider it would be perfect! This seems to be the standard width or slightly wider than standard. This isn't a mattress you carry on your back while hiking so I think they should make a wider version. I would recommend it over other mattresses with the same dimensions. I tried a bunch out in the store.

Rated 5 out of 5áby AndoverSue Most comfortable ever
I've tried everything outside of a full-on inflatable guest bed and this is the best. Slept great and not stiff in the morning. Initially over-inflated it--it works better for me with a bit less air. Probably too heavy to backpack with, but that doesn't seem to be the purpose anyway.

Rated 5 out of 5áby NovaScotiaLLBeanFan most comfortable camp mattress I've tried
Purchased this to go along with the easy cot. The large size of this futon fits on it perfectly.
Well. What a comfortable sleep. I have back and neck stiffness and find even hard beds uncomfortable. This on the Easy Cot is fantastic. It's cushy and substantial.
We have two others from competitors' brands and they are not nearly as thick when inflated, nor as comfortable. This has nice features and has a nicer feel to it than the ones we already own. It also inflates very quickly. Easy to inflate and deflate.
The ONLY problem I have with it is it is impossible for us to get it back in the travel bag. We were able to roll it fairly small again, but just not small enough to get it back in the bag. And there is no Velcro strap like our other brands have to secure it in a roll. So I will now have to go buy one.
So LL Bean, that would be great - include a strap or make the bag slightly bigger.

Rated 5 out of 5áby DrSal it rocks on th rocks
I have now spent multiple nights on uneven ground with rocks even and slept better than I do it my house, I had a very high end sleeping pad but I had to blow it up..,,I felt hypoxic.
I watched this self in flate like magic, And it is truly comfortable, The only down side it is kinda heavy. But I am no spring chicken and this is the best matterss I've ever slept on..Other than the weight, this is the best sleeing pad I've ever tried.

Rated 5 out of 5áby PilgrimInTheCity More comfortable than my bed!
Bedding was the weak point in my boyfriend's and my camping operation. After a couple failed air mattresses, camping pads that might as well not have been there at all, and too many mornings waking up stiff and on the ground, we gave in and invested in the extra large size of this self inflating mat. They are more comfortable than our beds. I can't say enough how amazing they are. They do not lose air. They are easy to inflate and deflate. The only issue we have is that the bags they came in are not really big enough to get them back into - I think LL Bean could improve significantly on the storage/carrying bag design - but it's worth it to sleep like a baby anywhere! Also great to have at the house for visitors. I have recommended this to everyone I know - you will not regret this purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5áby camper123456 INSANELY comfortable
Words cannot describe how comfortable this camp mat is. It's very easy to inflate and deflate, and makes a bed that is just as comfortable as my bed at home - no exaggeration! I just spent 6 nights on the road sleeping on this mat and am super happy with it. The only downside is I don't think I will ever be able to roll it up tight enough to fit back into the carry bag. No worries, though, it rocks!!!
