is it self inflating ?
JOHN M No, you have to blow it up, other than that it works great.
MICHAEL J No, this is not a self inflating mattress. Only takes 4 or 5 good breaths t o fill.
JAMES D The mattress is not self inflating.
ERIC B I am absolutely in love with my NeoAir Xlite Mattress. However, I do miss the self-inflating feature on my prior matt. Nonetheless, the work is worth it. I did purchase the Therm-a-Rest inflation bag but have found it rather cumbersome and will likely only use during the winter when there seems to be a theoretical concern about lung inflation effecting internal moisture.
Ben M no it is not takes aprox 20 breaths to inflate (the heavier foam in the older thermarests made them self inflating but in my experience you still needed to add half a dozen or dozen breaths) NeoAir way better so far I stick it inside a silk liner which quietens down the crackley plastic sounds
JOHN S No, it's not. But it inflates relatively easily and only takes a few minutes. Also, I know it's a bit pricey, but it's worth it. This is one of the most comfortable air mattresses i've slept on, and its incredibly light and compact.
