Default Inflatable Lounger

Hello! My wife new backpacking and just beginning to put our gear together. We are curious if anyone has any used the sleeping/lounging inflatable loungers? We will make 4 day trips at this time and hope to finally make longer trips.
Thanks for any input.

I have one, the kind you stuff a 3/4 length inflatable sleeping mat into, that I bought for canoe & kayak trips, where weight isn't a real problem. I did take it on an 8 day backpacking trip and I figure the extra weight of 310 gms was worth the comfort of putting my old back into a "real" chair after a long day of hiking.

Hello,

I know its an old thread but we have two Baggy McBag inflatable loungers. approx 2.2lbs each.
They inflate by me running around like an idiot for 12seconds, and using a roll top closure inflate into a 6-7 foot long couch.

They are wonderful!

we use it canoeing, on shorter backpacking trips, longer backpacking trips (if im not the slowest, and can carry extra weight), in airports, in the backyard, on picnics.

Its great. though we have put a small hole into one of them using them this much, so maybe we should be a bit gentler when using it on a forest floor.

Wouldnt hesitate to get one.
Much more versatile than a hammock.
stays inflated for ~2h (30min with current hole)

cons:
wouldnt sleep overnight in one as it does sag after 2h.
in hot temperatures it gets very warm, and is too warm for you to lay in for extended periods of time, youll get sweaty.

How easy is it to inflate these things? I watched a video showing how to do it awhile back and decided to not get one because it seemed hard to fill it completely with air.
