1 - How do I clean my ComfortLite™ Self Inflating Pad?
All ComfortLite™ Self Inflating Camp Pads are made with easy to clean surfaces. A soft cloth and warm water will clean up most messes. If you need something stronger, use a mild detergent with the water. For sticky messes like gum or tree sap, mix in a citrus based cleaner and scrub until sap is gone.
2 - What is the best way to store my ComfortLite™ Self Inflating Camp Pad?

Whenever possible, store your pad fully inflated. Simply stow it under a bed or behind a couch to hide it away. This helps the foam in the pad maintain its memory of inflation and will fill much faster when it's time to sleep on it.

If it's inconvenient to store the pad uncompressed, here is a tip for helping restore the foam's memory: Open the valves on your pad and let it fill on its own for a moment. Close the valves and begin rolling the air toward the bottom of the pad (rolling beginning at the valve's end–reverse of pack away motion). The air already in the pad will fill force some memory back into the foam as it passes down the length of the pad. When air reaches all the way to the bottom of the camp pad, open the valves again and let the pad resume filling itself. This is also a great tip for the first time you use the pad after you've purchased it since it will be compressed at that time.

With some forethought you can also simply open the valves on your camp pad and walk away, letting your pad take its time filling the first time or after compressed storage. You'll be free to go about other set up tasks while it fills from a compressed state.

3 - My self inflating pad took a while to inflate when I first got it. Is something wrong with it?
Pads are compressed when purchased and tend to fill up slowly compared to those that have been stored fully inflated. The foam's "memory" of inflation needs to be restored. By storing the pad fully inflated you will find that the next time you take it anywhere it fills up faster. In the meantime, here is a tip for helping restore the foam's memory: Open the valves on your pad and let it fill on its own for a moment. Close the valves and begin rolling the air toward the bottom of the pad (rolling beginning at the valve's end–reverse of pack away motion). The air already in the pad will fill force some memory back into the foam as it passes down the length of the pad. When air reaches all the way to the bottom of the camp pad, open the valves again and let the pad resume filling itself.
4 - Can I sit on the side rails of my cot?
Camp cots aren't designed to hold weight on their side rails. Because of this industry wide circumstance we recommend that you only apply weight to the center of the cot. Other manufacturers may not warn you about this, but we do because we want you to love camping with your TETON Sports gear.
5 - My cot has a smelly odor, what is it?
Sometimes the camp cots can give off an odor; this can be one of two things, either the rubber of the cot feet, or the smell of a freshly coated cot top fabric. We suggest setting up the cot outside so it can air out for a few hours or spray an odor eliminating spray on the cot.
6 - When I measure the Outfitter XXL Camp Pad (item #130), I don't get a full 3 inches. Why is that?
The Outfitter XXL Camp Pad (item #130) measures just over 2.5 inches. We round up to the nearest whole number on packaging and website specifications, but the physical cut is closer to 2.5 inches. When measuring, be sure to give the pad enough time to fully expand after it has been compressed.
