Rated 4 out of 5 by eugeneORshopping comfortable
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.

This mat has transformed our camping experience. It's easy to set up (just make sure to read instructions) and very comfortable. It doesn't take up much room for storage either. Would highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BklynCamper Comfy camp mat
We are very happy with these mats. I knew they were good when my husband immediately took a nap on his after inflating them the first time. They inflated quickly and weren't too difficult to roll up when it was time to pack. We opened the valves during the day, as recommended, since the mats would be in a hot tent. That night they just needed a few breaths to be comfortably inflated. I'm 5'2" and am happy with the regular mat. My husband chose the larger option and it suits him at 6'.

Rated 5 out of 5 by roninme camp pad
This isn't a backpackers pad, very large and comfy. The two valves work this way! no directions! give em 1/4 turn then pull out you can then let em self-inflate and also add a puff or two.This pad is extra heavy duty and well worth the extra cost.You will need to pack into another bag as it's impossible to get back into the original travel bag.

I had the best sleep ever using this sleeping pad for a week of canoeing on the Allagash River!
