Topped with cool and comfy air-sealed velour and filled with high-density open cell foam, with the Oztrail Queen 4WD Mat all you need to do is open the caps and unroll the mattress.
It's self-inflating, so will suck in the air itself, no pumping or blowing necessary. When the mattress is inflated replace the caps you’re ready for the most comfortable night’s sleep you ever had at a campsite!
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.
We had used our swag for years but felt we wanted a bit more in the way of comfort. This mattress fits the bill.
It takes both of us to roll it up and it was longer than we thought it would be but it is very comfortable.
Will be using this for years to come.
Worth the money, really comfy. Needed 2 people to roll it back up properly.
I purchased 2 off these Oztrail Queen self inflating mattress for my family camping trip. At the time, I was debating between Oztrail or the Blackwolf. I went with the Oztrail due to the price being approx. 50% cheaper than the Blackwolf mattress. I did read other's comment on how comfortable Oztrail mattress were but they also commented that it is very difficult to re-pack once it's been used. I took a leap of faith & went with my decision of purchasing a cheaper Oztrail mattress.I followed sel
Takes up a lot of room in the 4WD when rolled up and throw in the back. Up on the roof racks no issue but the bag is not too waterproof. Very comfortable and fits my Oztent RV1 like a glove. A little difficult to roll up on your own, but roll it up., screw close the valves, unroll it, reopen the valves and roll it up again purging out all the air - easy done. If you have room to stow it, then you'll be happy..
I bought this mattress about 10 years ago and have used it extensively over that time, even letting other people borrow it for camping. It has stood the test of time and is still extremely comfortable. I've used it for camping, and for sleepovers when I had people stay over. The carry bag that it comes in has disintegrated from being driven on the roof racks all those years and the mattress is no longer completely air tight, but like the description says, it will still maintain its comfort.
Love this review Dave, thank you!
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 :)
