Thermarest Inflation Adaptors For Sale
« on: January 17, 2018, 10:59:03 AM »
If you have used one of the Thermarest NeoAir models you'll know that, although the mats are great, the valves are not as good as what's offered by Exped or Sea to Summit. The big problem is that the air can come out just as fast as it goes in. This makes using an inflation sack a bit hit and miss. Blowing in to the mat is likely a bad idea as it can cause frost build up, not to mention putting bacteria into the mat.

I got the idea for a one way valve from a post on Backpackinglight.com but I think that my latest version has improved upon the original idea; same valve but silicone tubing makes for a lighter, more compact and better performing adaptor.

The valve fits the inflation sack supplied with the Xtherm or it can be used to fit an Exped or MEC pump or sack on to the T'Rest valve. My rectangular XTherm can be filled drum tight with four goes with the Thermarest bag. I insert the valve from the inside of the sack for a more secure fit.

Anyway I have a few of these for sale.

$12.50 Cdn each.
