Very comfortable mat easily set up and I can roll it up really tight and easy by myself the only down fall would probably be the bag it comes in. I'll defiantly have to get waterproof bag for it to store on the roof racks as it is pretty big.
Used this in a tent a few times now. We let it loft for about two weeks before packing it up again for the first trip, just like the Snowy's website suggested. Now it lofts easily in an afternoon, but it's still really easy to roll it down smaller than the bag it came in.
It's super comfortable, and doesn't bounce like an air bed if the other person moves around.
Like any inflatable mattress, the material tends to be cold and damp if you lie in direct contact. I recommend using a blanket or mattress protector covered by a sheet, The felt surface means the bedding won't slide around underneath you.
We use the mattress in the back of a 4WD (Subaru Forester, 2011). Works like a charm and is super comfy. The only thing is maybe that putting a sheet on top is needed due to the plastic velours topcoat of the mattress.
This Double 4WD Mat is great. plenty of room for 2 people. I can roll up by myself quite easy and Im no spring chicken and not very tall. Just takes a little longer for me to do it. Trick is to kneel on it as you're rolling it up. Fits into my small car easily. I team it up with a pop up tent.
Gave this mat a test run at home and found that it inflated quickly. Very comfy to sleep on. Given it's generous size, it does need two people to roll and pack but sure is better than those thin, "sure to puncture" blow up kind!
Rolled this out on the back of my ute, left it for an hour or so, came back to see it fully inflated. Was super comfortable for myself and my hot date!
Great product. We found it comfortable when on stretcher beds and big enough for us both.
After all these years sleeping on inflatable air beds we finally upgraded to the Oz Trail self inflating mattress. What a difference, no more cold air under you during the night, and comfort A+. Easy to roll up with two people and light to carry. Serious campers would love these.
We swapped two king singles for one double. Way better to sleep on, quicker to set up and takes up less room, however it does take two to roll it up, which is a bit annoying.
, but i guess the many positives out way the one negative.Very comfy to sleep on...
This mat is more comfortable to sleep on than an air mattress, and self-inflates pretty quickly.
However, it's an absolute pain to roll up to fit back in its bag unless you have a couple of helpers, and it developed a leak the first time I tried to roll it up.
Be careful not to lose the caps for the air release holes - the rubber rings holding them on pop off very easily.
Hi folks I noticed in emily's answer on 'how to store this mattress' that she said 'it takes a few days to inflate'. Is that right? Seems a little excessive if you're using it for camping and want to be able to store it between nights.
I do apologise for the confusion there, what I should have written is that the Oztrail Double 4WD mat will take 1-2 days to inflate the first time you use it.
After the first inflation, it should take a couple of minutes to be in a fully lofted state, and to pack down it would be a maximum of ten minutes.
Hi, I was wondering whether this is a bonded mattress?
Howdy Greg. Great question on bonded mattresses.
This particular Double 4WD Mat is glued rather than bonded. The benefits of bonding are that the fabric is firmly adhered to the inner foam, providing a bond that prevents ballooning of the mattress when weight is applied to it. This means that the air can only go between you and the ground and aids significantly to its comfort levels and a great nights sleep.
It is highly recommended that a pump is not used to inflate these mattresses as it can compromise the glue or bonding and cause it to separate. Before its first use it is best to unroll and let the mattress self inflate for a few hours to allow the foam to regain its correct characteristics and this will get faster each time you use it.
Hi could you please tell me how this matresses are required to be stored between use. Thankyou.
I do apologise for the delay in asnwering your question, I'm not sure what happened there over the weekend.
I've just looked into this for you, and you can either store the Oztrail 4WD mat in its lofted state under a bed or behind the couch, or you can undo the valves and roll it up for storage - it's totally up to you.
Leaving it lofted is generally the easier option, as it takes a few days to inflate so it will save you time for future trips.
