Windcatcher AirPad Inflatable Mattress
Amazing air mattress inflates in seconds without a pump.
The Windcatcher AirPad is a compact camping bed that pulls in surrounding air to quickly and easily inflate. You’ll be amazed how much a single breath of air fills the mattress.
The Windcatcher’s innovative valve is unlike any other inflation valve you’ve seen: instead of a small plastic hole, the Windcatcher has a wide opening that you blow into from several inches away. This engineering wonder allows you to fully inflate your Windcatcher in under 30 seconds without having to pack an air pump! The four inches of quilted support give you a comfortable night’s sleep and the durable material keeps it from springing a leak.
When you’re ready to hit the trail, the Windcatcher rolls up into a compact shape and fastens with an attached elastic band, saving you space in your pack. The versatile Windcatcher even converts into a seat using the snap-on side straps.

Camping is about unwinding in the outdoors, not fussing over your mattress or worrying about getting a good night’s sleep. The Windcatcher AirPad is a fast and simple sleeping solution that doesn’t require you to pack an air pump or blow into a slow unsanitary nozzle.
The Windcatcher is able to save your breaths thanks to a scientific principle called entrainment; instead of solely relying on the air from your lungs, the valve also sucks in the air around you. The result is an air mattress that inflates like (scientific) magic in seconds.
Seconds from slumber
The Windcatcher makes it easy to get settled in for the night. Hold the valve by the designated ends to create an opening, blow into the valve from several inches away, and watch how quickly your breath fills out the mattress. When the bed is nearly full, move in closer and top off the Windcatcher with a few extra breaths. Once finished, roll up the valve and secure it with the attached G-hook.
The entire process only takes about 20 seconds, so you can get back to enjoying nature.
Take a seat
Before you settle down for the night, fold up the versatile Windcatcher and use the integrated straps to quickly convert it into a seat.
The converted air cushion works great for sitting around your campfire or stopping mid-hike for a quick lunch. And when you’re not roughing it in the great outdoors, you can also use the portable Windcatcher as a cushioned picnic seat or comfy beach chair.
When you’re ready to pack up camp, deflate the Windcatcher by using the pull tab to take out the one-way valve. The bulk of the air inside the mattress will be released in seconds. Roll up the Windcatcher to push out the remaining air, then fold it up and use the G-hook to secure it into a compact roll until you’re ready for your next night’s sleep.
Keep your bed on your back
The ultra-portable Windcatcher is perfect for campers who want to minimize their gear. When deflated, the compact mattress slims down to 8.5” x 4.5” x 4.5” and weighs less than two pounds, making it an easy addition to your pack.
Since it doesn’t require an air pump or stuff sack, you’ll be able to travel with a light load or have room for more important gear (read: marshmallows).
Sleep on air
Nature isn’t always nice enough to provide a soft campground. That’s why Windcatcher’s durable 75D RipStop Polyester material is suited for whatever terrain you need to camp on. Most sleeping pads are made of thin foam but with four inches of quilted support, you’ll have plenty of comfort between you and the ground, so you can rest easy.
Question: Is this hard to blow up?
Answer: The Windcatcher is easier to inflate than a standard mattress with a vinyl plastic nozzle. It takes about the same amount of breath you use to blow out birthday candles, only repeated several times within about 30 seconds.
Question: Can I use this at any temperature?
Answer: The Windcatcher is not insulated but should be comfortable in non-freezing conditions.
