Double use: Make an Exped Schnozzel Pumpbag fit for your Therm-a-Rest mat

I own a couple of sleeping mats of different shape, weight and warmth. Unfortunately, Sea-to-summit, Therm-a-Rest and Exped use different valves. Here is how you can deal with that.

In     wenigen Minuten wird   aus einem Exped-Pumpbag ein Universal-PumpsackModern air sleeping mats form mold if you inflate them by mouth. For a longer product life it’s better to use an inflation aid. The range of choices includes Therm-a-Rest NeoAir Mini Pump (electric), Sea To Summit Jet Stream hand pumpExped Schnozzel Pumpbag.

For years now, I use an Exped Schnozzel Pumpbag. Ex factory it does not fit on Therm-a-Rest valves. However, the remedy is simple:

  • Use a Dremel or better still, because it runs on less speed, an electric pedicure set to abrase the top inner edge of the Schnoozel outlet.

  • Work with low speed to avoid too much heat.
  • Do not abrade too much material – the valve will not be tight otherwise.
  • Take care not to harm the Schnozzel. (Hint: Put a small piece of wood inside the Schnozzels tip to prevent that.)

Here you go. Ready to use the Exped Schnozzel Pumpbag to inflate your Therm-a-Rest NeoAir, too.
