The system is built around the desire to bring high-performance memory foam to your campsite. Home mattress foams have evolved and improved over the years, and we wanted to bring the same innovative foam chemistries from your home to the outdoors. We started with the foam and developed the best combination of foam to conform, provide pressure point relief, breath and support different sleeping positions in the outdoors. With all these sleep performance goals, we also added the goals of being thinner than a home mattress and compressible to roll up. In addition to the foam, the drop stitch also allows us to recreate the home mattress experience in the outdoors. Most home mattresses have a firm base of foam. It would be impossible to roll up a home mattress base, so we created the drop stitch base, since it creates a firm support for the foam but also deflates and rolls up. The drop stitch has added benefits of being waterproof, durable and helps compress the foam during rolling.
Your HEST Sleep System is simple to assemble:
1. Unroll sleep system
2. Screw tube in to “OUT” port of pump
3. Remove valve cap on the dropstitch base
4. Press down on spring-loaded valve stem & turn clockwise until it springs up. The valve is now closed & will hold air.
5. Insert pump tube in to valve & inflate w/ pump
6. Inflate to desired firmness. (Pump dial does not register until 7 PSI. We recommend under 10 PSI. Do not exceed 15 PSI.)
7. Attach valve cap.
8. Sweet dreams!
After enjoying a wonderful night sleep, the HEST Sleep System can be rolled up for transportation and storage:
1. Remove the valve cap
2. Depress & turn valve stem counterclockwise to allow air to escape.
3. Install “IN” port of pump.
4. Press down on spring-loaded valve stem & turn clockwise until it springs up.
5. Remove extra air with the pump.
6. Install valve cap.
7. Attach compression harness to base.
8. Start with tight roll & slowly roll Sleep System to allow air to escape from foam.
9. Connect compression straps and tighten.
10. Insert sleep system & pump in to bag. (Alternative- Attach compression harness to bag & then base.)
11. Hit the road!

We designed the foam cover to zip off the drop stitch for a number of reasons. We expect people to remove the foam cover and wash it. It is also possible to remove the foam cover and use the foam without the drop stitch. This can be a nice option if your sleeping surface is flat & dry.
We realize everyone will need to store their mattress between their adventures. Please make sure your mattress is dry before storing it. Since the foam cover is only water resistant, it is possible to have dampness inside the foam. If this is the case, we’d recommend removing the foam and allowing it to dry before storing it. Once your mattress is completely dry, roll up your mattress and store it in a cool and dry location.
You can pump up your Sleep System's base higher to for more rigidity, but it is really a personal preference on firmness. The pump's gauge goes lower than 7 PSI. Many people tend to stop pumping well before 7 PSI, as long as you are reaching a rigidity in the base you are satisfied with that's all that matters! Once you've slept on the System a few times you'll start to get a feel for what firmness is most comfortable for you.
Yes the covers on all of our products are machine washable! You can spot clean as needed or for a deeper clean, unzip the cover and toss in the washing machine. We use high quality nylon fabric, so recommend washing on cold with like colors and dry on a line or in the machine on a low heat setting.
The Dually is designed for flat and dry sleeping setups. It works really well in a truck or van build-out which is what we recommend using it for. The Dually is designed to fold in half to allow more room for gear when not in use and are held in place by two sturdy clips.
The Sleep System is our most versatile mattress. With the inflatable base, it is waterproof, super durable and bridges across gaps and bumps, perfect for sleeping on any kind of terrain.
Yes! We currently offer two dimensions of the Dually: Long (78"x50"x3.9" Open & 78"x25"x7.8" Packed) & Wide (74"x60"x3.9" Open & 74"x30"x7.8" Packed). We’ve found that certain vehicles & build outs work better with the different sizes, so make sure to measure your sleeping platform/space before you order.
The cover zips off and allows the foam to be removed for washing the cover. The polyurethane coated nylon on the bottom of the mattress folds to the outside, protecting the stretch nylon twill sleep surface from moisture and dirt during transport or storage.

Anyone with a HEST memory foam camping mattress and a dog can probably attest that their pooch won’t stay off it… so why not make our furry friends a bed that’s especially for them? Since we already know dogs dig our memory foam and fabric, we decided to maintain the same premium materials as our human pads. Nothing less for your HEST friend!
The HEST Dog Bed is super easy to use.
1. Unclip the two clips on the integrated compression straps.
2. Roll out the comfort.
3. Sit, Down, Stay & sweet dreams for your doggo.
1. Starting at the head of the dog bed, begin rolling. Start with a tight initial roll, use your knee to compress as you go, and take your time- it takes a moment for the air to escape the foam.
2. When fully rolled, reattach clips & tighten integrated compression straps by cinching.
3. Hit the road!
When you get home from your trip, we recommend airing out the mattress till it’s fully dry before long term storage. Once dry: store in a cool, dry place.
More info on using your HEST Dog Bed can be found here.
We designed the HEST Dog Bed with a foam liner to protect the foam against the extra wear and tear of daily use by an adventure dog. We know sogginess & mud are inevitable when it comes to camping with a canine, so having an extra layer of protection will increase the lifespan of the memory foam.
The foam liner can be easily removed if you prefer a more plush/body contouring sleep for your dog. Simply:
1. Unzip & remove the cover.
2. Unzip the zipper located on the side of the waterproof foam liner.
3. Gently pull the foam out of the waterproof liner.
4. Gently reinsert the naked memory foam into the cover. Tips on getting the foam into the cover can be found in this blog/video.
Once you’ve unzipped and removed your stretch/waterproof mattress cover, it can be machine washed. We recommend cold, gentle cycle & hang drying to maximize the longevity of the fabrics’ performance.
