Windcatcher Self-inflating mat

Postby Aushiker » Mon Jun 03, 2013 10:30 pm

I like the concept, but not so sure about the mat itself from a bicycle touring perspective.

Details on the Windcatcher kickstarter project can be found here.

The inflator is an interesting application of a venturi. Otherwise, it looks like an old-fashioned Lilo.

I like it. It's slightly shorter - but lighter - than my Thermarest NeoAir Trekker (which takes an eternity to inflate, relative to this thing). Might be worth it!
