Pacific Outdoor Equipment Peak ELITE AC

Posted: November 7th, 2011 | Posted in: General

I have purchased a Pacific Outdoor Equipment Peak ELITE AC from Cotswold Outdoors here in the United Kingdom. This is the second replacement I’ve had after the first one failing on me, resulting in a night on the cold ground.

Last night, on this mattress’s second camping trip, the same thing happened again. A slow deflation 1.5 hours into sleeping on it, then a night on the ground in 0 degrees celsius conditions.

I’m not sure what is causing these failures, as after the first time it happened I have been extremely careful with the mattress when packing, storing and using it – but still the same end result. I only weight 9.5 stones, so I don’t think I’m putting much pressure on it either.

At this point I feel unable to trust this product on another camping trip, in spite of it being one of the most comfortable sleeping mattresses I’ve ever used.

I’ve sent a note of complaint to Pacific Outdoor Equipment, and I’m awaiting a response.

Very dissapointed :(
