    Q:

    Can you add air to the self inflation with your mouth or do you need a rafting pump?

      A:

      You can add air by mouth. Just open the valve, huff & puff, then pop it closed.

      A:

      I just let My bed pull in the air it needs. I would use a pump
      if it needed to be firmer but personally I would avoid blowing into it
      because of the water vapor in breath will contaminate the foam and
      lead to condensation and mold etc... Plus, cold weather insulation
      value will suffer. Tie it on to the boat to sit on so that You don't
      loose it and open the valve at camp for a while, watch out for sand or
      dirt, let it do the breathing! Close the silly valve before Ya hit
      the sack!

      A:

      Yes, a small plastic tube was provided that allows to breathe air into the bed. Although provided I have not needed to add more air. Open the valve and let it sit for 10-15 min. and the bed will self inflate and just close the valve. Hope that helps, enjoy !!

      A:

      Yes, you can add air to this sleeping pad using a piece of tubing N.R.S. provides. I have owned this pad for a year and have been very satisfied,though slightly narrower than the jacks plastic, it is more affordable and seems of equal quality.

My wife and I bought two after sleeping for years on Thermarest products. We will still use our Thermarests when backpacking, but the NRS River Beds are our new choice for rafting and car camping. We had great sleep on them and we used them as padded seats on our boat on a recent 5 day trip. Also, because they clean easily with a river dunking, they are immune to tears from dog paws and other sharp objects, and you can slide them under the tent floor to make a seamless bed floor for two people. Also, sliding them under the tent floor gives an added layer of protection for the tent and it means they don't have to be super clean. We were very happy we purchased these products.

They are bulky and heavy when compared to a Thermarest, but it is not really a fair comparison because the quality of sleep is so much better on a River Bed.

The pad is pretty much bomb proof. Really well made and will last a lifetime. I'm sending it back because inflating does not affect the firmness. The material is only attached to one side of the padding so that when you inflate the pad turns into a a big tube. If you like a firm sleep, which I do, then its like sleeping on a balloon that moves with you every time that you move which I just don't find to be very comfortable.

Comments about NRS River Bed Sleeping Pad:

MUCH more comfortable than the "competitor's" pad! Excellent valve system, softer foam, and costs less too! Well done NRS! I may just have to invest in an XL too for car camping trips!

Comments about NRS River Bed Sleeping Pad:

I use this white water rafting. Not only is this an easy to set up and comfortable sleeping pad, but it also serves as a cover to my front cooler and a comfortable seat on my raft during the day. Also, with the same Leafield C7 valve as my raft, it is an emergency backup in case my raft valves have trouble. Overall an excellent sleeping pad, if a little large when rolled up.

I bought 2 of the Lg pads for my kids to use on over night raft trips & truck camping. Great product for the price! 2" longer, 1/2" thicker and $50 cheaper than the comparable Paco Pad. Don't get me wrong I love my ElGrande, but the NRS pad is well worth it!
