We’re a small team of intrepid off-roaders that are in the business of making gear for your adventures to take you farther. For years, our products have been trusted by weekend campers and dedicated overlanders alike worldwide.

Rugged adventures call for a durable yet comfortable sleeping solution. Just because the trails were rough doesn’t mean the sleep needs to be. deepsleep products are tenaciously designed with military-grade materials for off-road use and your best night’s rest on the backroads. You can also hit the road with confidence knowing we stand behind our products and we’ve got your back with personalized customer service.

We believe the overland life doesn’t need to break the bank. Maybe a rooftop tent or trailer set up isn’t in the budget right now, or you don’t camp enough to justify that. deepsleep gear is a pocket-friendly way to step up your adventure-mobile to get you out there! Time is money as they say. Save time setting up tents and get to enjoying your off-time faster! With deepsleep, you can set up base camp in your car in just a few minutes.

deepsleep products are quality-focused and not some wimpy, 1 season disposable. They're designed to last for many trips to come, overall reducing waste in the long run. We also put boots on the ground and regularly donate our time and sales dollars to trail cleanups, and efforts for public land conservation and access. Every deepsleep purchase supports our family business and trickles down to others as well as our domestic suppliers.

Meet the Team

We’re a small team of 5 adventurers, and remain a family owned and operated company. For that reason, we all wear a lot of hats around here, but we have a blast working together to make your camping trips a comfortable success!

Nate & Liz, Owners/Founders

Nate is the primary product designer and patent owner for deepsleep. He works mainly in material sourcing with our domestic and international suppliers, and closely with our manufacturing team for quality control and environmental efficiency. He’s an avid hunter, camper and the office scotch aficionado.

Liz is our marketing and social media team. If you comment or chat with us online, it’s probably her messaging back! Liz also oversees our network of small business retailers worldwide, and our partnerships with charitable organizations and events. She enjoys camping, concerts, prefers bourbon, and loves animals (sometimes more than people).

Zach & Claire

Zach oversees our overall warehouse operations, order fulfillment, and also doubles as our repair tech. If you’ve ever taken advantage of our free repair service, he’s usually the guy fixing it! Zach is known for leaving small cartoon drawings around the shop in random places, and makes some pretty rad stuff out of recycled skateboards in his spare time.

Claire manages our front office. She handles most day-to-day front desk responsibilities and oversees most customer service. If you contacted us by email or phone, Claire was probably the first person you spoke to! Claire loves to camp, she's the most meticulous list-maker you'll ever meet, and she's pretty good at keeping us all in line around the shop. Fun fact: she hates it when we call her 'office manager', so if you ever need to email us or call in... please be sure to call her that :)


Olivia(Claire’s sister) joined the deepsleep team in 2021 and handles most of our packaging, order fulfilment, and manages inventory. If you’ve shopped with us recently your order was most likely packaged with love by Olivia. She describes herself as more ‘indoorsy’ than the rest of us, even though she’ll hike or camp if someone else plans it. She loves to read in her spare time. She has ‘many leather-bound books and her apartment smells of rich mahogany.’


Minka is our mascot and helps with product testing by making sure things are pet friendly and paw-approved! She loves to car camp, and attend expo shows with us. Her favorite game is stealing bean bags while we’re trying to play corn hole, and she'll never turn down beef jerky or cheese.

She helps our team advocate for our public lands by attending trail cleanups with us and she became the 1st 4-legged member of Tread Lightly in 2020. She is also a certified ‘Bark Ranger’ with the National Park Service.

We're Committed to Change

As an indie business, we believe we hold the responsibility and honor to use our resources and community platform as a drive for change in the world around us. That’s why we give a portion of our proceeds to organizations that are working hard to improve lives, and public lands we all adventure on—in our own backyard and across the globe.

Tread Lightly

As the world of overlanding and off-road adventuring has become more popular, the toll it takes on our public lands cannot be ignored.

Our team works closely with Tread Lightly to donate our time and a portion of proceeds to support their mission for responsible recreation awareness and education, protecting public land access, and nationwide trail cleanup events.

Charity: Water

Another cause close to our hearts is charity: water. When we fill up our water jugs in preparation for our next trip, most of us often take for granted how cheap and easily accessible our clean water really is where the majority of us live. Water is a basic necessity that should be fairly and equally accessible to anyone around the world. For this reason, we’ve partnered with charity: water to do our small part to support their mission in ending the global clean water crisis.

Our Environmental Commitment:

deepsleep is not your average mass-marketed air mattress purveyor. Ours is a family business. What we do comes from the heart and is reflected in the way we design and produce our products.

Responsible practices

Since our journey began, we have combed the planet to find both international and U.S. suppliers and factories that practice responsible manufacturing, pay fair wages, and uphold a professional workplace code of conduct. Our entire business and culture are based on a love of the outdoors, so we take our responsibility to reduce our impact as much as possible on our environment and the places we all call home very seriously.

Values we’ve implemented to grow towards a more sustainable future:

Compared to the average inexpensive air mattress, our mattresses are designed using thicker, military grade materials so that our products are overall meant to be an investment that lasts    

We use recyclable packaging and we’re working towards a closed-looped manufacturing goal. As many production scraps as possible are used to produce other products so less ends up wasted.

We run our business nearly paperless and, (with a nudge from the recent pandemic) we implemented remote work as much as possible to reduce our carbon footprint wherever we can.

Our team offers a free mattress repair service to our customers in an effort to reduce wasted products that may otherwise end up discarded due to accidentally damage. Accidents happen! -Care for your gear carefully, and repair and re-use is our motto!

Several times per year our team donates their time to do local/regional trail cleanups, and we donate a portion of our proceeds to organizations that support public land preservation and bring clean water to developing countries in need of global support.

“Be the change you want to see”.

We refuse to underestimate how a lot of small changes can lead to a big impact,and we're commited to doing our part.
