Is anyone else having issues with their instaflator pad inflators?
I bought two of them about 5 weeks ago, based on good comments here. One was for me, and one was given to a backpacking friend.
Mine worked fine when tested at home, and again on an overnight trip 4 weeks ago.
I went to use mine again on a weekend trip last week, and it had developed a large tear about 4 - 8 inches away from the nozzle. I'm not sure how. I use it, then roll it up and put it in my pack. At home, it's stored in a gear bin until used again.
My friend tried hers for the first time this weekend. It had been in the original packaging until being taken out for use overnight. She says it looks like a seam on hers had given out, also about 4-8" away from the nozzle.
Kinda bummed. I REALLY like the idea of this device, but it seems to have quality issues.
