Thermarest Neo Air

I just purchased the sleeping pad, I love how light it is. But I thought it was somehow self inflating. Is there any type of pump or device that can be used to inflate, does ThermaRest make something like that? Im worried if we are super exhausted, and or tired it will be hard to even blow 20 full breaths, without possibly fainting! :)

This is the coolest thing I have ever seen.  Have not personally tried it yet, but Jason is usually right on with his reviews.

I purchased mine last spring and I also love it.  I got the 66" model which is a great compromise length for me.  I found the 48" zrest just a little short and the 72" one over kill.  I switched to Neo Air because it's not only lightweight but very compact which I need now that I'm using a lighter & smaller pack.  I have not had too much trouble blowing it up.  When I have any problems I just use some patiences and inflate it a little at a time.  I am concerned, however, that constant inflations using my breath will cause a build up of moisture on the inside and cause problems down the road.
