Using your ultim comfort self-inflating mattress for the first time

How to inflate this mattress ?

It is really important to inflate your mattress to a good pressure.
Do not over-inflate in order to reduce wear and tear and avoid damaging your back, but inflate the mattress enough so that it is comfortable and allows you to sleep properly. When sitting on the mattress, your bottom should be touching the ground.

A self-inflating mattress inflates itself to approximately 80% full. So, leave it for about 20 minutes with the valve open and then adjust the pressure using mouth-inflation.

This mattress uses a double valve system: the IN valve draws in air but can also expel it when the black non-return valve is pressed if you want to adjust the pressure while lying on the mattress.

How to deflate and fold this mattress into its bag ?

You just need to open the OUT valve so that the mattress gradually deflates on its own. Then roll up the mattress starting at the opposite end to the valve in order to expel the air. Do not hesitate to press down on it with one knee to eliminate as much air as possible. Close the OUT valve.

You can now start folding it in half across the width, and in half again in the other direction in order to store it in its bag.

How to sleep well on an inflatable mattress ?

As mentioned previously, the pressure of the mattress is the key to a good night's sleep. When seated, you should be able to feel the ground. When you are lying down, the air will spread evenly under your whole body.

There is no preferred way to sleep: you can sleep with your head at the valve end or at the other end; do as you see fit! We advise you to put your head close to the valves so that you can adjust the pressure of the mattress at any time.

For maximum comfort, get a sleeping bag with the correct temperature rating, as well as a pillow.

What is the r-value ?

The R-value standard (ASTM F3340-18) measures the thermal resistance of the mattress, i.e. the level of insulation it provides against the cold coming from the ground.
There are various levels:
- 0 to 1.9: summer use only
- 2 to 3: can be used from spring to autumn
- 3 to 4: can be used all year round
- greater than 4.5: winter use and adapted to extreme conditions

This mattress has an R-Value of 8.6.

How to stop your mattress from making noises ?

When you sleep, the sound of the friction between the mattress and the ground can be annoying.
Do not over-inflate in order to minimise this problem.

You can also put a blanket or a sheet under the mattress.

How to optimise the insulation of your mattress ?

If you want to improve the thermal insulation of your mattress and get better protection from the cold and moisture of the ground, you can put a foam mattress or a survival blanket under your mattress, or a groundsheet under your tent.

Maintain your self-inflating ultim comfort mattress

Here are all the tips you need to maintain your mattress in the best possible way. The key to properly maintaining your mattress is the washing, folding and storage steps. You will find more information by clicking on the link at the bottom of the section.

Maintaining an Ultim Comfort self-inflating mattress


With soap or washing-up liquid, gently rub the surface of the mattress to remove any dirt.
Do not dry your mattress in the sun but use a cloth instead.

Fold up

Follow all of our advice for folding your mattress in the previous section.


Mattresses are sensitive to heat and humidity. So, store them in a dry place at amoderate temperature.
If possible, lay them flat with the valve open.

How to repair a hole in your self-inflating ultim comfort mattress


Your mattress appears to have a hole in it and you are probably wondering where the leak is coming from. Indeed, it is difficult to spot a hole in the mattress with the naked eye. Currently it is impossible to repair the top of the mattress, but if the hole is located on one of the sides, you can easily repair it. Put some soapy water on the surface of the inflated mattress beforehand and wait for air bubbles to form showing you the correct location of the leak.
