When it's cold outside, we open the KingCamp Double Wide Sleeping Pad to raise our sleeping spot for the night above the freezing ground. The two-way valve helps find the perfect stiffness for our sleeping style. The double-wide size fits our pickup bed well for truck camping adventures, and the compression straps pack it down for compact travel.

I learned that the best way to inflate it is either to blow into it or use an electric pump. Otherwise you're waiting a few hours for it to self inflate to about 80% firmness. There is no real sealed attachment for the pump so I use my palm as the seal. When it's 100% inflated it is awesome. It's great for wicking sweat. I use another 2" inflatable mat underneath it for comfort. It seems redundant but I've had many large department store air mattresses deflate on me.
I bought this mattress instead of the cheap air mattresses that squeeks and makes a giant ruckus with each body movement. Ito use for the Canada day long weekend camping trip around Harrison hot springs. It fits a tent rated for 3 people, I had a about roughly 6" along an entire side of my 3-person outbound tent. At night temperatures werent too bad, a hoodie and pair of sweats would keep the night chills at bay. So this mattress is damn amazing. It's comfy, kept me high enough off the ground to avoid the midnight chills. Mind you, I did have a 3 season sleeping bag and a yoga mat to keep me extra comfy. Rolls up nicely to throw in the car. I can't see this being brought on a back country trip as it is quite large and heavy to lug on your backpack. No pump required, so that's one thing less to bring out. I can't wait to go camping again.
I do strongly suggest inflating it once or twice before actually camping with it. I believe the first time took me a few hours for full inflation. I feel like it inflates progressively quicker.
Pros: comfortable with sleeping bag, ~1.5" off the ground, self inflatable, doesn't take too long to delfate, perfect for car camping or driving to campsites, comes with patch, spacious ( more than enough space to fit two 5'9" people and a Frenchie ) warm. Doesn't make any noise compared to air mattresses.
Cons: not for back packing, little heavy, takes a while to inflate the first time (it is highly recommended to inflate it prior to use), bit pricey but worth it. The "pillow" padding is useless, but helps me. Indicate which side is the right side up.
Worked a few times then one of the valves started to leak constantly. No bueno.
My wife and I used this for camping in the woods and camping at music festivals (Electric Forest!). I let the mattress inflate with the valves open for a few minutes and then came back and closed one valve and pushed a few breaths of air into the other one to give it some extra pressure before I closed it. It doesn't feel at all like you're sleeping on the ground. It doesn't bounce around like an inflatable air mattress. The foam fills the space pretty nicely and gives you extra support and stabilized the entire thing so it doesn't bounce around. It packs up extremely fast and comes with a nice bag and is easy to carry around.
I can't say enough good things about it. I actually slept better than I would at home on my memory foam mattress. I'm a guy with bigger shoulders at 210 lbs and it was totally comfortable.
Just received this sleeping pad recently. I was looking for a single, wide pad that would fit well in the back of my Ford Expedition for spring and fall car camping. I couldn’t be more pleased with my purchase! It is a perfect fit side to side with no room to slide around yet still has room for table/divider to be used near back hatch, which is exactly what I was looking for. Even though the pad does self inflate, I preferred to add additional air by manually inflating it as well, which will allow for a more padded feel. I also needed a tougher pad that will hopefully withstand my 60 pound dog’s paws from puncturing it. I will update if it passes the dog test once I use it for an overnight trip. So far seems like it’s worth the money and shipped very quickly! It also comes with two pillows unattached so I probably won’t use those as I already have preferred camping pillows, although they could be used as inflatable seat cushions as well.
