How would you describe "self-inflating"?
This whole category of "self-inflating" pads is based on a type of foam interior which is compressed when the pad is rolled up, but expands to it's natural shape and size once you open the air valve. This expansion can take several minutes... you just unroll the pad, open the valve and leave it alone. A new pad or one that has been rolled up a long time may need multiple times to get to full size... open the valve, close after a few minutes, lay on the pad for a few minutes, then open the valve again.
