SIMs can provide a much better night’s sleep than air beds, but you might find them difficult to put away. Now there’s a solution to that problem.

When we started family camping all those years ago, the only real option for sleeping was the airbed.

Fortunately, camping technology has moved on somewhat. We’ve been really impressed with the family camping Self-Inflating Mats from Outwell, as they are both comfortable and provide good ground insulation – something air beds can’t do.

However, a lot of people find it difficult to get all the air out of the mats before putting them away, and this is especially the case for the larger family camping SIMs.

Well, Outwell has come up with another innovation, the Outwell Air Flow Control Valve, that makes it a lot easier to inflate and deflate self-inflating mats.

The Outwell Air Flow Control Valve

The Outwell Air Flow Control Valve is a great bit of design, and much easier to use than the traditional self-inflating mat valves.

Switch the valve to the middle position, and air can flow in and out of the SIM. You leave one valve in this position to let the mat self-inflate.

Then, simply switch it so that it says ‘Airtight’ and the valve will let air in but not out. You can even blow into the valve when it is set to ‘Airtight’ to make the mat firmer.

To deflate, well, it’s pretty obvious: you simply switch the valve to ‘Deflate’. Now it will let the air out, but not in.

This makes it so much easier to pack away self-inflating mats with this valve. With traditional valves, the mat would be trying to reinflate itself as you tried to put it away. Not anymore for SIMs that have the Air Flow Control Valve.

Using the Valve on the Outwell Deepsleep Double

Outwell sent us over an Outwell Deepsleep Double SIM to put the valve to the test.

The Outwell Deepsleep is very comfortable self-inflating mat. This one is 7.5cm thick, has a brushed fabric top, and an R-Value of 7.7.

If you use this SIM with the new Outwell Inlayzzz bedroom carpet, as shown in the picture, which has an R-Value of 1-1, you are going to have a much warmer night when the weather turns cooler.

How to fold up the Outwell Deepsleep

Here are some simple steps to getting the Outwell Deepsleep back into its bag.

First, switch the Outwell Air Flow Control Valves to Deflate.

Switch the valve to Deflate

Then, fold the Outwell Deepsleep in half, making the width of a single SIM.

Fold the double SIM in half down the centre line

Gradually fold the SIM to get the air out. Use your weight to help it deflate quicker.

Give the SIM a few folds and lean on it to force the air out

Unfold the SIM but keep it folded down the centre. You now need to roll up the Deepsleep SIM, starting at the end of the SIM that doesn’t have the valves.

Roll up the SIM, rolling towards the open valves

Grab the compression straps and secure them around your rolled-up SIM.

Secure your SIM with the compression straps so that it doesn’t unroll

Finally, pop it in the bag.

Keep your Outwell Deepsleep clean by placing it back in its bag.
