We bought 2 x Zempire Camp mattress and join them together. Easy to set up and very comfortable to sleep on. Highly Recommend.

I bought 2 of these for my daughters 10,8 after reading the reviews and comments. Yes, they take up more space when packed away but they are really good. Not recommended for hiking but great for car camping. I am now going to purchase one for myself. So much better than the 10mm foam mats we had growing up.

Camping mat

Really good easy to use.To get bed back in bag, roll up bed then release valve and push air out, do up valve, roll again push air out. Just do this a few times to get air out of bed.

Perfect for our needs:-)

Thanks Snowys for your prompt shipping of our ‘glamping mat! Easy to inflate and easy rolling and compact storage.
We also bought an oztrail self inflatable mat, they both fit into the oztrail bag when rolled tightly! Thanks for supplying our glamping gear:-)

great mat

as you'd expect, very comfy, but quite big when rolled up, and don't forget, they all say to store it unrolled....

Bomberpad1 answer

can you use this with the 50mm mattress (by placing it on top) in the zempire ranger 900 swag or is it preferable to replace the foam mattress with the self inflating bomberpad.

- Millicent(3 weeks ago)

G'day Nathan,

You'll be able to set this up either way. The comfort should be fine with just the Bomberpad in there, but if you leave the foam in at the same time it just won't roll up quite as small. 

- Snowys(3 weeks ago)

Does the bomberpad fit in ranger 900 swag1 answer

i see the width is 76cm of the bomberpad. i measured my zempire ranger 900 swag and between the inflatible poles it measures 73cm so it might just tuck up a little between the poles.

- Millicent(3 weeks ago)

G'day Nathan,

I don't have a Ranger set up on the shop floor here to test this but it shouldn't be a problem. The mat will give a little where it needs to, and it is a little bit narrower than 76cm because they must be measuring the 'flap' of fabric off each side of the mat.

Can you join 2 together?1 answer

Wondering if you can join 2 of the single Bomberpads together?

- Bangalow(3 weeks ago)

G'day Adam,

Zempire doesn't make anything specific to join the Bomberpads together, but the Sea to Summit Mat Coupler Loops will do the trick.

Vs Oztrail Comfort Bonded Mats?1 answer

Which is the better mat? Will be used for a child (9yo).

- Bellbowrie(3 months ago)

G'day Adrian,

Both the Oztrail and Zempire Bomberpads Camp Mattress are great camping mats. I personally own a Zempire, which my 6-year-old daughter sleeps on when we go camping. She finds it comfy and sleeps well on it. Based purely on that personal experience, I'd probably lean towards recommending the Zempire for you but I do feel that you'd be happy no matter which way you went.

Compared with Zempire Megamat?1 answer

Hey how does this compare with the Zempire Megamat? According to the specs they fold down to about same size. Os that right? Are they the same for comfort? Durability? Thanks!

- Ipswich Qld(5 months ago)

G'day Brad,

You're right with the pack-down size, both the Zempire Bomberpad and the Zempire Megamat pack down to a similar size. As for comfort and durability, the Megamat is a thicker mattress and is lighter than the Bomberpad, this means that it's a little softer. Because the Bomberpad is a little denser, you might find it to be a touch more durable but not by any huge stretch. I personally own a Zempire Megamat and find it incredibly comfortable, the Bomberpad is a little too hard for my liking but that would probably come down to personal preference for most people.

How best to store?1 answer

How would you recommend storing the mattress? Is it OK to store rolled up, or better to do so inflated (as once recommended to me for a Thermarest). Thank you!

- Leichhardt NSW(5 months ago)

G'day Ben,

Good question. As a general rule, I'd say store your mat inflated with the valve open if you have space. If you need to roll it up for storage due to space restrictions I'd keep the valve open. In short, keeping the mat as uncompressed as possible when in storage is a good idea.

Pack size in swag?1 answer

Hi Snowys, my son has a AOS tracker king single swag, I am wondering if this mattress will make the packed swag size smaller without compromising comfort? We use the black wolf double in our double swag and it has made a big difference. Thanks Cheryl

- East Kurrajong (7 months ago)

G'day Cheryl,

The Zempire Bomberpad Camp Mattress is a comfortable enough mattress to sleep on. I've got one that my daughter uses when we go camping and she always sleeps well on it. If you were wanting to fold it inside your swag though, you'd need to roll all the air out of it, seal the valve and then roll it again inside the swag. If you just roll it in the swag then the air will start to come back in and the mattress will expand inside the swag.

What size does this pack down into please??1 answer

Fit on stretcher1 answer

I've just noticed that the functional width of the Gecko is less than the total width because the end poles extend. Is there a stretcher that will fit these inside?

- Brisbane(1 year ago)

Hi Peter, 

You're right the Zempire Bomberpad isn't going to be a perfect fit for the Gecko. I've tried the Bomberpad on top of the King Goanna Stretcher in store, and the mat fits within the frame with no overhang as it's 210L x 80W, and the Bomberpad is 198L x 76W cm.

The King Goanna is also one of the most reliable stretchers in the range, so it's definitely one you should take a look at. 

- Snowys(1 year ago)

Fit on stretcher1 answer

Thanks for that. It looks like the Oztent Gecko stretcher would be a better choice because a bit of extra length is not really an issue for the kids but the mat overhanging the sides worries me because of wear and tear. Though the Gecko does not seem to have as stable legs.

- Brisbane(1 year ago)

G'day Peter, 

The Bomberpad mat will definitely hang over the edge of the Oztent Gecko stretcher, so if you are concerned about wear and tear a better choice would be the King Goanna as that is a bigger size. 

The Gecko and King Goanna both have the same legs, and we find them to very reliable models that our customers provide great feedback on. These stretchers are also padded for extra comfort which is an extra bonus. 

- Snowys(1 year ago)

Fit on speedy stretcher1 answer

It says that the pad fits perfectly on the stretcher, but the stretcher is 65.5cm wide and the pad 76cm. It seems to be a bit longer too That's 2 inches overhand each side. Am I missing something?

- Brisbane(1 year ago)

G'day Peter, 

I've just checked this out, and you're not missing anything - it seems that we were!

The Bomberpad is indeed going to have a bit of overhang on the speedy stretcher, you could still use it on top of this stretcher but I suppose they're not as complimentary as we thought. 

Thanks for pointing this out for us, I'll make sure the description is changed to prevent further confusion.

R-Value2 answers

Hello, What is the R-value of this mat ? Regards

- 3150(1 year ago)

Hi Julian,

Unfortunately Zempire have not supplied this information for the Bomberpad Mattress! Most of the cheaper self-inflating mats do not list an R-Value. I'll get in touch with Zempire on Monday to see if they can provide any further information, but if insulation is something that you're really concerned about then you may be better off looking at one of the Black Wolf deluxe mats :) 

- Snowys(1 year ago)

G'day Julian, 

I've spoken with Zempire, and they've confirmed that their Bomberpad Camp Mattress doesn't have an R Value rating. As Lisa mentioned before, if that is a feature that's important to you we have a few options that you might want to check out. 

The Mega Deluxe from Black Wolf has a high R value of 9.5, and the Megamat 10 LXW from Exped also has an R value of 9.5 - so they'll provide a lot of warmth and insulation.

Comfort of this vs the F35 EPE mat1 answer

I just can't decide what to get the kids! They are 5, 7 and 9 and about 20-30kg range) would the F35 mat be comfortable enough? We are family camping not hiking rough or anything! Thinking it would save on space/weight, but then if they aren't comfortable - well we wont be either!

- Marmion(2 years ago)

G'day Katie,

I've just popped downstairs and had a chat with some of the staff who have kids, and they reckon that the Bomberpad is the way to go as it's more comfortable than the F35. 

The Bomberpad is 7cm thick (as opposed to the 3.5cm of the F35), has a soft suede finish which is going to be more comfortable in summer, and is very well made considering the price - so it definitely has the edge over the F35 in a few ways.  

It can be a pain lugging around extra weight, but at the end of the day you will all have a lot more fun if you get a good night's sleep. 

If you're still unsure about your choice, you can always give us a buzz on 1300 914 007 and one of our customer service team will be happy to talk you through the range.

Bonded?1 answer

Is this mattress bonded?

- Burwood East(2 years ago)

Hi Robin. Thanks for the question. The Zempire Bomberpad Camp Mattress is a fantastic quality unit, with Suede Polyester non-slip top so you wont slide off in the middle of the night. The cover is bonded to the foam inner which means the air has nowhere to go other than between you and the ground, giving the best comfort levels in self inflating mattresses. The length of this mattress is a generous 198cm long and 76cm wide.

Choosing between this and the oztrail 4wd single mat1 answer

Which is better? Oztrail 4wd or this one?

- Marmion (2 years ago)

Hi Katie. The Oztrail mat is a bit thicker, however the Zempire mat packs down a bit smaller and is lighter so it is easier to pack and transport. The seams on the Zempire appear stronger and the suede polyester top feels more luxurious, however this can be a matter of personal preference.
