X-Lounger Portable Air Pump

My oh my. The X-Lounger Portable Air Pump is our newest luxury item to go on our adventures.

Remember, we are ultra lightweight backpackers...for example, our packs, with water weighed in at 21.5 lbs for a 7-day trip. So, when we opt for a "luxury item," it had better be worth its weight.

Manufacturer Claims

  • Weighs 4.7 ounces
  • Inflates your air mattress more than 20 times on a single charge.

What We Found

  • This little pump weighs in at 5.5 ounces, and that's without the attachments. 
  • We took the pump on a 60 mile backpacking trip as a luxury item...we pumped up 4 air mattresses 6 times each (24 uses) and there was no change in output over time.
Five stars all the way on this device!
