SELF INFLATING MAT INFORMATION AND CARE
TAS X Lite Xtreme Mummy Self Inflating Sleeping Mat
Outstanding comfort along with lightweight versatility.
Tapered mummy shape, anti-fungal foam, brass valve, repair kit, velcro strap and stuff sack.
A more comfortable alternative to a foam mat.
How do they work? A layer of foam is sandwiched inside an air tight outer with a valve. When the valve is opened the foam expands and sucks air into the mat.
Instructions for Use
Step 1: Check the ground for any sharp objects that could damage or puncture the mattress. Unroll mattress and lay at on the ground you have checked.
Step 2: Undo valve anti-clockwise and allow air to be drawn in, inflating the mattress.
Step 3: Once fully inflated, close valve clockwise. If extra ‑firmness is required, blow extra air into the open valve, then close valve with mouth still on valve.
Step 1: Fully open valve anti-clockwise.
Step 2: On a flat surface, roll the mattress up towards the open valve – expelling air through the valve.
Step 3: Once rolled up close the valve clockwise to prevent more air from being drawn in. Unroll the mattress and fold in half. Roll the mattress up a second time toward the closed valve. This second roll will force more air up towards to valve end, once you are close to the valve open it again to expel the ‑final amount of air.
Step 4: Close the valve again, and use the supplied Velcro strap to keep the mat rolled up tight.
Caring for your Mat
It is not recommended to store your mattress rolled up in its storage sack for long periods. For maximum performance of your self inflating mattress, store the mattress fully expanded with the valve open. This allows any moisture from your breath trapped inside to escape and dry out during storage. Storing the mattress fully expanded will maintain the memory of the foam, this allows the full potential of the foams’ expanding power when it is self inflating the mattress.
To clean your mattress, inflate the mattress and ensure valve is closed. Use a mild soap and warm water to spot clean dirty areas, rinse with fresh water and air dry out of direct sunlight.
ALWAYS ensure mattress is dry before storing.
KEEP AWAY from any open flames, sparks and embers.
DO NOT use an air pump or compressor to inflate the mattress.
