Choose Product Option
No matter where you are, the Outback Mat from ALPS Mountaineering will make you think that you are at home in your own bed. This 4" thick, luxury air mat is sure to give you the best night sleep possible. If you're looking for the benefits of an air mattress without the hassle of air pumps and cords, the Outback Mat has you covered! No need to worry about hand pumping or noisy electric pumps—the Outback Mat inflates itself. The innovative Qwikflate valve makes inflation quick and easy. When you're finished with the pad, the same Qwikflate valve provides rapid two-way deflation. Its vertically-cored foam design makes rolling and storing the mat easy all the while helping to minimize weight. The use of 30D elastic fabric on the top creates a super-soft feel, while a 150D fabric bottom makes the mat easy to clean and extremely durable. A stuff sack and repair kit are both included, making the Outback Mat all the more convenient and ready for wherever your plans may take you!

Comfy but not portable

Awesome bed for a full sized man like me. Wife likes hers too. It does roll up and compress well, but its large without any air. You will not carry it on your back far so its for car camping.

Not certain about insulation, but I've been in 30 degree weather with no issues. Good bed. We got the XL and love 'em.. Cover is a fabric that feels good to skin, even in warmer months, not slick. Younger family members are jealous and we have banned them from using ours..

Quality Cusmoter Service

Life is not perfect and things do go wrong, I judge companies and people on how they respond when things are not perfect.

I have owned this Outback Mat for a little over a year and when it developed a leak, a simple email to customer service and then a follow up email with my proof of destruction (I had to cut a hole in the mat and send a picture), resulted in a new replacement a few days later.

I purchased my first items from Alps Mountaineering after i read a review about how the company stands behind their products, I now own several Alps Mountaineering products and i am pleased to say that Alps Mountaineering truly cares and stands behind their products.

Scoutmaster Approved

Recently purchased the Outback Mat and wow...what a comfortable and warm sleep.

Used on a 20* night and slept comfortably warm. Recently had a cabin campout and paired it with a cot and sleeping on a cloud.

Figuring out the valve took a bit of headscratching then had an ah-ha...duh moment (spoiler alert: it pivots).

Now that I know how to use it, the pivoting valve make inflation and deflation a breeze. Takes a few extra puffs to inflate just because of the size; but, nothing too bad.

Certainly not designed for lightweight backpacking; but, for car campers this is a must have.

Love everythnig about this mat.. Comes with a spacious storage bag with a little pouch that contains a patch kit.

It's pricey; but, worth every penny. Don't hesitate.
