I've got both.
The alpacka's inflation bag is made of a more durable silnylon and weighs 100 grams, compared with the instalflator which is made out of a shopping bag-type of plastic and weighs 45 grams. it looks flimsy but mine is still going well after about 80 uses.
The Alpacka uses a larger valve which screws on (?boston valve) which wont fit onto standard thermarests while the instalflator comes with a plastic hosing at the tip which fits onto a thermarest valve.
i take the instalflator along when theres several mats to inflate and we just take turns carrying it. Highly recommended because we no longer get light headed and not worry about moisture getting into our neoairsNov 12, 2010 at 2:04 pm #1663635
Approximately? Anyone?Nov 13, 2010 at 4:34 am #1663837

here is mine squeezed into a 12oz rei insulated mug. you could also flatten it. design is pretty much a long diaper genie bag with a flexible tubed plastic adapter. great piece of gear. bag and tube are both multi use in case of emergency. you could probably replace the flexible adapter with something lighter if you wanted and had time to tinker. it would also be easy to cut down the bag. standard size takes one and a half bags to blow up a Large Neo Air. I might customize and cut mine down to make it so 2 full bags inflates my pad but probably wont save much weight, just makes me feel like i didn't waste anything :-)Nov 13, 2010 at 3:10 pm #1663954
im just considering the world of possibilities … i can use em to inflate my … ummm … anatomically correct inflatable manikins … yeah thats it ;)

May be of interest to those considering the ones on sale on ebay (above link from another poster). This is the reply I got from him:
"Yes, this is our product. The only thing is that this is the version that we came out with three years ago. We have made several changes to the 3 in 1 nozzle and to the type of material that it is made out of. All so it does not have the attachment that goes with most camping air pads.
Should you have any more questions please let me know. Please feel free to give me a call, 281-433-8277"
haha.. still not sure if I need one myself. Just in case I get a DAM.Nov 21, 2010 at 9:40 pm #1666819
I measure a recent one at 1.6 ounces.Nov 22, 2010 at 8:01 am #1666894
i think is is just extra weigh :D get a small size neoair and u almost have nothing to fill up.Aug 24, 2011 at 10:32 pm #1772681
Cool, but like all great ideas it's not a completely original comcept, based off a similar science gadget, the "wind bag" or "bournoulli bag" that demonstrates the bernoulli effectAug 29, 2011 at 8:28 am #1773873
