Rated 5 out of 5 by BTaylorMN Convenient, Comfortable
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

Rated 5 out of 5 by KayakMom2 Very comfortable
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by junniebugg Camp Fulton Mattres
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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by VirginiaJane Stuff Sack WAY too small
Bought the XL Camp Futon to put on the Easy Cot along with the Flannel Lined 40 Degree XL Sleeping Bag. They make a very comfortable combination for sleeping and reading.
The stuff sacks for the folding cot and sleeping bag were perfect.
The stuff sack for the camp futon however is USELESS. I spent 30 minutes, worked up a sweat, and still couldn't get the futon into its sack. Very frustrating, and really totally pointless. So much wasted effort and emotion that wouldn't occur if only an extra inch of fabric were used in the manufacturing of the sack.
I guess I'll rip the seam on the sack and add my own extra inch or two of fabric, and re-sew the whole thing. It will take me less time than fighting to put the futon way. How annoying though.
I'm a 5'2" middle-aged woman who car-camps on her own, and I like my creature comforts. I bought extra large everything because I'm slightly claustrophobic and like to be able to turn around/roll over without being constricted. The XL bag and futon make that possible.
The sleeping combo described here is heavy, but worth it. In a pinch, might even work for sleepover guests here at home. Were it not for the too-small and unusable futon stuff sack, all would rate 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GrandmaGardener Makes a great chaise lounge cover too
We inherited two really good metal chaise lounges. Unfortunately the pads that came with them split and after a year or so the expensive replacement pads split. Now when I want to relax outdoors I use my L.L. Bean Camp Futon. It is super comfortable. I do bring it into the living room at night.
It has also been used as a Camp Futon for travel.
