The Flextail Gear Tiny Pump 2X… “Tiny” is definitely a good word to describe it!
But, can a pump that fits into the palm of your hand really pump it up like a foot pump or other larger compressor? We wanted to find out!
We couldn’t wait to see what this Flextail Gear Tiny Pump 2X was all about!
Do “big” pumps come in small packages? With both pumping AND vaccuum capability, we wanted to find out!
The size of the 2X is pretty amazing. It easily fits in the palm of your hand!
The kit comes with standard with the pump itself, several pump attachments and a USB charger cord.
The pump has a little carrying handle as well.
Flextail Tiny Pump 2X Performance Review
The packaging and aesthetics of the Tiny Pump 2X are definitely top-notch, but how would it perform in some real-life applications?
Let’s find out!
Pump VS. Queen Air Mattress
Our first test of the pump was on a queen-size air mattress. It pumped it up completely in about 10 minutes!
Pump VS. Vacuum Bags
Flextail also makes vaccuum storage bags. So, this was a perfect way to test the vaccuum feature.
Here’s a look at the vacuum storage bags right out of the package.
Not that you would EVER want to store away awesome N1 Outdoors shirts…
…but they made for a good test subjects!
To vaccuum the air out, you connect the opposite side of the pump to the port opening.
It took about 20 seconds to suck all the air out of the bag. Pretty neat!
Overall, we were impressed with the design and performance of the Tiny Pump 2X.
And, although the pumping performance was not super fast when pumping up the air mattress (10 minutes), it would allow someone time to set up something else on their campsite while letting the this little pump do some big work of its own.
The Tiny Pump 2X is a great addition to a camper or backpacker’s supply list!
The storage bags that Flextail makes are also a great use for the vaccuum feature of the pump.
Great job Flextail!
