An ultra-lightweight (1.4 oz), dual-purpose waterproof stuff sack and Exped sleeping pad (sold separately) inflation device, the Schnozzel PumpBag UL is a versatile backpacking accessory. Waterproof fabrication and a sealed roll-top closure fully protect the contents of the bag.
An integrated connection point allows the Schnozzel PumpBag UL to inflate any Exped mat that does NOT have an integrated hand pump. Simply attach the bag to the sleeping mat, open the bag to fill it with air, roll down the closure and press down on the bag to transfer air into the sleeping pad.
NOTE: In order to use the bag to inflate Exped pads that do have an integrated hand pump, the FlatValve Adapter (sold separately) is required.

- 2.2oz "Game-Changer!" Not 1.4oz
Likes: 2.2 oz! With my scale, the weight is @ 2.2oz. Despite the added weight, this UL Schnozzel Pump Bag is a "Game-Changer!" The additonal ounces are worth it...The quickness of inflation with this UL bag is impressive. Also the assurance of not blowing my humid/moist breath into the SynMat to cause material degridation & the cooling effects of water droplets is a very crucial benefit when nights cool off. The UL motto of having multiple uses for any one item applies here; the bag doubles for a water-resistant pack liner & SynMat inflation. I have a DownMat9 with the integrated hand pump and have always hated the laborious effort it takes to inflate it after hiking all day. It's too bad this pump bag doesn't fit my old DownMat 9. I would recommend this item.
Overall, I am happy (4 stars, only because there isn't a 3.5) that I can double up on its uses...as I continue to look for ways to drop sensible ounces from my pack.

Dislikes: It's not 1.4oz! Not a HUGE deal...unitl the other ounces start adding up.
Likes: Inflates my SynCellMat fast and easy. It took two bagsful the two times I inflated the mat, and I have the long wide mat.
Dislikes: There is nothing I don't like about it.
Likes: It works like it should and I can use it as a stuff sack for all of my sleeping gear when I pack up it the morning.
Dislikes: Make sure that the tube that connects to the mattress is not twisted or the air won't flow very fast.
