My Outdoor Retailer Summer Market 2008 report continues...

A first look at the new line-up of Leatherman folders and the Instaflator, another one of those why-didn't-I-think-of-that products that makes blowing up inflatables (air mattress, toys, etc.) simple.

Enjoy!

Holy Moses! That inflator tube idea IS a forehead slapper. To think of all the times I've sat and huffed and puffed into an air mattress, or pool toy, I am lucky I never got an aneurism from the spike in my blood pressure.

Thanks Doug

I've actually done that as a science experiment with bags from a "diaper genie". It is very easy to blow up a 10' long bag with one breath, but obviously never thought about using it in this way. -Awesome idea!

Instaflator - so simple and effective. It fills a need without the over-engineering that has gone on for decades! Maybe they will come out with a smaller version to eliminate the huffing and puffing associated with starting fires.

Try a straw, or piece of small tubing You can direct all of the air right where you want it, much easier than just huffin' and puffin'...

Thanks, OBG. I pack stuff like tubing without knowing how many uses it might eventually yield.

The Crater PDF link worked for me but not the Expanse.
