    NeoAir Mini Pump

    After a long day of steep switchbacks at altitude, manually inflating your NeoAir mattress can seem like a monumental task. With the Therm-a-Rest NeoAir Mini Pump, you can inflate your mattress in just three minutes and kick back for some well deserved shut eye. And, by not breathing into your sleeping mattress, you're keeping it cleaner and prolonging its useable life.

    • Compact pump weighs just 2.3 ounces with batteries
    • Runs on two AAA batteries (not included)
    • Single battery set is good for approximately 25 inflations
    • Inflates a standard NeoAir mattress in just three minutes
    • Compatible with all Therm-a-Rest NeoAir sleeping pads

    Wish it were a bit stronger

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Bought this for a friend and here's what he had to say: Takes about 5 minutes to mostly fill a NeoAir XTherm, which then must be topped off via some other means to fully inflate.
    Just shy of 3 minutes I managed to fill the mattress using just the stuff sack

    Noisy and useless

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I purchased this to pump air into my Thermarest sleeping pad and after 5 minutes, the pad was still flat. It was noisy and sounded like it was about to fall apart. I used several new batteries thinking it may be the lack of juice in the battery but 3 sets of batteries can't be the cause. I pumped air into it using the traditional way and I had my pad filled up in no time. I will be returning this product.

    Make life easier

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    It blows the Thermarest up. Great accessory. Make sure you have extra batteries and no complaints. I would much rather sit next to my air mattress drinking beer, than getting lightheaded blowing the stupid thing up.

    Smaller than expected

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I definitely understand what the other reviewers are saying in terms of strength, but it does the job. You'll have to top it off with a few breathes but it's worth the breathes it does save.

    This little dude is very small and fit nicely in my therm-a-rest pad bag on top of the pad.

    Poor performance

      Decided to give this a try after messing around with plastic bags to inflate my qcore air pad. I was pretty disappointed with the performance. It took over 5 minutes before it "max'd out" in blowing air before getting back pressure from the pad, and that's being 75-80% filled. You will have to top it off regardless to fine tune to your comfort level. I decided to return it and went with the BA pump sack since it was more versatile.

      No power at all

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Purchased for my regular thermarest but also with fresh battery the pump does not blow well and is totally useless

      too heavy too noisy too slow

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      it is way loud when your trying to enjoy the peace and quiet
      and it takes like 20min too fill my nio air

      Awesome pump, saves your lungs the work

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This little pump came with my Therm-a-Rest NeoAir pad, and it worked like a charm. Nice little gadget to have to save you from light-headedness. If your pad doesn't come with a little pump like this, I recommend you buy this one.

      It came with the pad? Which one exactly? I have bought a top of the line thermarest pad and it was not included :(

      Great piece of gear.

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      What a saver this is,no more hiking all day, just to set up camp and end up with lightheadedness. Simply set up your tent. Roll out your matt, hook up the pump, then just walk away to get dinner ready. In less then 5min, you'll hear the sound of the pump change, that tells you it's done. Don't worry about leaving it on its own. It will it will continue to run when pad is full, it will do nothing except maintain the air pressure it just delivered into the matt. There is no risk of overfilling the pad. At this point you may want to add a breath or two, it's fine for me as is, but you may like it a little firmer. The pump is multi purpose. You can use it to blow on your fire, carefully, use common sense. It also serves as a hair dryer, no, it's not perfect, but it's better than nothing. All in all, it's well worth the small, 3 ounces. Put it in the bottom of the stuff sack, you'll forget all about it, till your next trip. Then you'll be thankful you didn't forget it.

      Great piece of gear

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I love a nice piece of gear, and this little pump is great. I have a Klymit Static pad, which is big and takes a lot of breath, so this comes in very handy. I just put the rubber pump nozzle over the valve and just let it work while I do other things, and voila, it's done in a couple of minutes. I usually add a couple of breaths to fully inflate the pad. It's small and batteries last a while in it on a river trip.


      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Felt a little silly adding this to our backcountry trip, but after blowing up two NeoAir Trekkers this pump became essential equipment - with extra batteries just in case. After a long hike and setting up camp our lungs protested the prospect of blowing up sleeping pads. The mini pump gave my wife time to relax and chat while contributing to a dreaded camp chore. Not sure how long it took to inflate because we were off the clock. By the time the tent and sleeping bags were ready, the sleeping pads only needed a few blows to stiffen, and we were good to go. Don't leave home without it!!



      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      I love my Neo Air but I have a large pad and it is a chore to inflate. I was a little skeptical to try this pump due to its size but after reading reviews I figured why not. This little guy is a lung saver! With my large Neo Air it took 4 minutes to fill with only 4 breaths to make it firm! I highly recommend this and if your worried about weight and size the unit is weighs less than a granola bar and fits in your palm plus you can use your headlamp batteries to save a few grams. I haven't seen any durability issues and I'm sure if you pack it with your pad or bag it will be perfectly safe!

      Life Altering!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Every once in a while I find a gear item that is actually life altering, and it's usually a small, unassuming item. After 20 years of blowing up thermarests, it has definitely gotten a little old. This little mini pump has definitely changed my life, and I don't want to be without it ever again! It's really small, so I won't have to. While setting up the tent (or reorganizing the car, depending on where you're bivying), just lay out the thermarests (I generally have to do 2, which is way too much) and get the pump going. I usually finish them off with a few breaths to get them really firm, and can't believe how easy it is compared to how not easy it used to be... I often drop the pump and make the lid fall off, but it goes back on well fortunately (it doesn't break when it falls off, just pops off the small tabs it sits on). I keep it in the stuff bag of one of the thermarests so I don't forget it. If you use thermarests, you should buy this thing immediately.

      No more lightheadedness.

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I usually camp with my girlfriend, therefore I have to blow up two pads. The Klymit Static V pad that I have is fine, give or take 14 breaths and it'll be filled. But my Therm-a-rest Neo Air pad... takes 36 sometimes 40 breaths to be filled. After doing that a couple times, I realized I needed a better solution. In comes this mini pump.

      The pump is small, which is great. When I first powered it on and tried to inflate my Neo Air, it was slow... going on 7 minutes and it wasn't even 1/2 filled. But that was my fault though, I shouldn't have used old batteries. After I put in some fresh batteries, this thing was roaring.

      Therm-a-rest's claim that the pump will inflate a standard Neo Air in just three minutes is a little off, but I don't mind. I timed the inflation process and in 3 minutes 50 seconds, air was flowing back out of the pump which indicates that it wasn't going to go any further (honestly, air was flowing back out a little earlier than that, but I was slow to hit the timer, oh wells). The pad needed only one good breath or two breaths to be completely firm.

      I am not nitpicking about the 50 seconds. I am thankful that I no longer have to blow into pads until I felt faint, dizzy and lightheaded. I'm never going camping without this mini pump!

      On another note, I used this pump for my Neo Air pillows and it took almost no time for those to be inflated. I know, I know, those pillows don't take much to inflate manually in the first place... but just a note for the lazy people.

      No more lightheadedness.

      Neat pump

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      Works well and small size is a big plus

      Nifty, and lightweight

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I chose this little thing over a "pump sack" and good old fashioned lung power. I'm a small guy, with lungs to match. After a long day, the last thing I want to do is huff and puff to inflate my mat until I'm lightheaded. This pump takes care of business in just a few minutes, and battery life seems to be great. It fits easily in the extra space inside the NeoAir Trekker (regular size) stuff sack if you're worried about keeping it dry.

      I am pretty happy with it.

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I go backpacking a lot with my wife and we have two large size (25x77) neo air pads. This thing is great. It takes about 3 minutes to inflate each pad to about 90 percent. So far I got about 10 inflates out of my set of rechargeables (eneloops) and it is still going strong.

      Works great though you can get by without it. I think the pad might last longer with it, since you are not blowing moisture into it.

      One thing that I wish I could do is reverse the flow and deflate the pad. I don't think that would with current generation of Thermo-a-rest. Actually, it would be even better if Neo Air had a deflate valve, like most of Exped pads.

      Verdict is still out

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      It has been hit or miss so far with this little pump, sometimes it works for me, sometimes it doesn't. I often have to remove the batteries and reinsert them to get it to work. However, worth the money and it saves you time in the long run.

      Great for many uses!

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      I have just recently found this pump. When I used to blow up my pad manually, I almost always get light headed. Now with this pump I am completely willing to carry the extra weight.

      i debated getting this pump...but it sounds worth it...great advice!
