Hodgman PakLite canvas air mattress, circa 1948
The mattress was greatly overinflated for photography purposes.
Note: The Robe was photographed on a 60+ year old Hodgman PakLite brand canvas air mattress, another wonderful piece of vintage gear. At my age, an air mattress is a necessity for sleeping on the ground and it would be incongruous to pair the Woods Arctic Sleeping Robe with a modern model. For cold weather camping I recommend that you spread a Hudson Bay blanket over the air mattress before placing the sleeping bag on it. The blanket serves to insulate the sleeping bag from heat loss due to conduction.
