Instead of stressing about leaks or punctures in your mattress, add a Leisure Mat Queen Self Inflating Mattress from Oztrail to your set up.
This mat will stay in a lofted state even if it gets a hole, so you’ll never have to wake up to the cold hard floor of your tent. The top of the Leisure Mat is a soft brushed velour which is easy to clean, and it has high-density open cell foam for plenty of comfort. The boxed wall side construction adds edge support and helps speed up inflation, and the high flow two-way flip valve reduces inflation time, helps prevent air loss, and makes rolling it up easier.
This mat also comes with storage straps and a carry bag for packing up and transporting it back from the campsite. For a reliable night’s sleep on your next car camping expedition, the Oztrail Leisure Mat Queen Self-Inflating Mat is the easy choice.
We have found the mattress easy for 2 people to roll up to fit into the bag. The mattress is comfortable for 2 people to sleep on, however it is best to check the inflation as we have noticed less air over a few nights of use. The mattress is easy to self-inflate so this isn't a big issue. Although it is quite long packed in the bag we are able to fit it in the car with 1 rear seat folded.
If you let it inflate by itself a week or two before you actually need it (from new) then it is very comfy! I did not have the luxury of waiting a week or two and it was a bit uncomfortable. The second time I used the mattress it was fantastic, best nights sleep.
it's just like your own bed.
Ok, this is definitely one thing you should buy (if you have the space to transport it). Self inflates very easily, plenty of sleeping space for 2 large adults, very comfortable nights sleep (no joke!). Downside? Its storage size is large (needs a trailer to transport it) and it needs to adults to roll it up (but once thats done it fits back inside its bag easily). Knowing this though, I would still buy it again.
Great mattress that is super comfy, I have tried a few other brands and this is by far the best. Easy to roll up as well.
its very comfortable and only downside would be it's size.
I don't normally leave reviews but it was frustrating me reading everyone struggling with rolling it back up and not being able to respond.
VACUUM! :) I can get ours so small it falls in to the bag with heaps of room to spare.
We have a reversible mini air compresser for camping that I flick in reverse and at home I just use the vacuum cleaner. Works great :)
Also its handy to give the kids the vacuum job to get them out of the way while packing up your camp. They love watching it shrink :)
I've had this mattress for a few months now but only taken camping once. It's was very comfortable but I just cannot seem able to roll it back up so it's just sitting, inflated, in my garage. I only have young kids so getting another pair of hands isn't the answer.
Glad you've slept well on you mattress Denis. As for rolling it up, a second set of hands is pretty handy for any self-inflating queen mat. It will never roll up quite as tight as it comes from the factory, but with with a couple of people rolling it up, giving the air time to escape as you go, it should pack away to a manageable size again. ~ Ben.
This is the fourth sleeping solution we have had for camping and is far superior to anything else we have tried (thinner self-inflating mats, air mattress, camping stretchers).
Finally we can get a good night sleep while camping - no deflating during the night, not too hard/rigid, and no getting knocked around every time the person next to you rolls over. This is as close to a proper mattress as you will get for camping.
Definitely takes two adults to roll back up and need to be able to transport on a roof rack or trailer. Size is really the only drawback but well worth it for the comfort if you have a roof rack.
This is a genuine queen size mattress, so there was plenty of room, even when the children crawled in during the night. First nights camping on it were around 2-3 degrees and the mattress kept its warmth very well. It inflated reasonably quickly. It certainly is a two person job to roll it up, but we managed to get it back to its original width of about 25 cm in diameter easily in a few minutes. We have been using a long, but narrow car pod, so I wrap the Mattress in a old tarp and tie it to to the roof racks next to the pod. If you can pack its bulky size, then this is worth the money.
I am considering buying this for camping with my kids, my only concern after reading the reviews is will it fit in my car and is it possible to roll up on my own?
Whether or not the Oztrail Leisure Mat Queen fits into your car depends a fair bit on what car you've got. As for rolling it up, I've actually got one of these and have no issues rolling it up on my own. Although, I should mention that I can't get it rolled up quite as tight on my own as when I'm doing it with someone else.
From what my research shows, I reckon you should be able to fit an Oztrail Leisure Mat Queen in your Kia Sportage.
We have just had this delivered in the normal speedy Snowy's manner. I just wanted to check about the firmness of the mat. I have had it open for 3 days in pretty warm weather, and it seems to have inflated fully. It is not anywhere near as firm as a thermarest that would have had some extra lung pressure in it. When we lie on it hips aren't quite hitting the ground, but if we get up our elbows & knees will feel the ground. I just want to check this is normal? I have read not to add any extra pressure via inflation tools. Seems like it will be comfortable enough to sleep on, testing it out in a week.
This is normal for the Oztrail Queen 4wd mat. As the PVC is not bonded to the foam, you don't get the same type of even air distribution as you would with a bonded mat. Having said that, these mats may take up to a week to fully expand upon first use.
I'm new to camping and want a mattress to sleep straight on the tent floor and have been told blow up mattresses can get quite cold. Is a 4x4 mat like this good for sleeping straight on the ground?
While the Oztrail 4WD Mat is an entry level sleeping mat, they are very rugged and can easily be placed on the ground. The foam insert within the mat offers a little more insulation against the cold compared to the air mattresses, the only downside is that the 4WD mat packs down much larger.
When considering warmth, remember that there are many variables including body temperature, material insulation (eg. sleeping bag) and many other factors which you'll need to consider.
Hi. Just wondering if this would suit the queen stretcher that you have for sale?
The Oztrail Queen 4WD mat will fit on the Oztrail Easy Fold Queen Stretcher, but that particular stretcher has a bar in the middle so a double/queen mat will be raised in the middle on top of this stretcher.
If that's going to bother you, a better option might be the Zempire Bomberpad Twin Mattress, as the design of that mat will eliminate that peak in the middle that some people find annoying or uncomfortable.
Are these any less comfortable than the black wolf mats? Do they have fewer features or is the price difference purely a reflection of brand name?
G'day Mark. There are a few differences between the Black Wolf & Oztrail 4wd mats. The Oztrail 4wd mat is a great budget option, however the Black Wolf mat does has some additional features that the Oztrail mat does not. In terms of the comfort, I would consider the Black Wolf mat to be more comfortable due to the better quality foam used. The Black Wolf mat also is about half the weight of the Oztrail, and packs down to half the size so it's a lot more manageable when packing the car. Also Oztrail only offer a 1 year warranty, whereas Black Wolf offer a limited lifetime warranty on manufacturing defects. These are some of the reasons why you'll pay more for the Black Wolf mat, but it's a good investment if you can afford it :)
