    This is an interesting topic and is not been discussed much. I would say the Fat Joe but I might be a little biased.

    My wife bought me this for Xmas and it is v.nice and came at just the right time! It pumps ~.6 psi per pump, compared to my specialized road-bike pump at ~.25 per pump. The gauge only goes up to 30psi. I was able to pump my Snowshoes up to 21 psi with a reasonably small amount of work.

    Any cheap floor pump will do. A good gauge is more important, I have an SKS Airchecker.

    I use a cheap $20 sette air 2,floor pump from price point, quick, puts out a decent output. I could have a tire pumped to ten psi in around a 1-2 minutes.

    I am waiting for the SKS Big Wheel to be released. Until then it is my SKS Rennkompressor and the Meiser Accu-Gage 15 psi model.

    No one mentioned Lezyne yet? I used to think bike pumps were devices sent to this planet from Satan himself, meant to get you to shout curse words at high volumes before I got a Leyzne. Now I like bike pumps. I've got a mini portable that I've used for years and it still works the same as it did when new. Also got a high volume floor pump. Good stuff, worth the extra 20-30 bucks that you pay over crap plastic pumps that shatter in your hands during the 5th use.

    Mentioned quite a bit in the link provided above. Not the first time this topic has come up - just the first time this week...

    I am starting to laugh at these "fatbike specific" pump threads. Are there people out there pumping up 50 fat tires a day by hand or something? I mean, I changed a fat tube in 10 minutes with a mini pump. What kinda time savings are we really talking about here?

    I want a fat bike specific pump so I don't have to pump, remove pump, put gauge on, put pump back on, pump, remove pump, put gauge on, etc.

    Based on where I ride and the conditions I run different pressures so being able to do it all with on device is better for me.

    I have a Topeak Joe Blow Mountain that I keep in my truck. It works great on fat bikes and I've even used it on the road when I had to make an emergency repair and plug my Suburban's tire.
    I also have the Bontrager Flash Charger. I keep that one at home and mostly use it for setting up new tubeless fat tires. Works awesome.

    Gotcha.

    On my floor pump, the needle moves off zero at 9.5psi. Coincidentally, 9.5psi is the highest pressure I would typically run. If I need less, I just let out a tap or 2 on the valve. I have a 0-30psi gauge that I used to calibrate my pinching fingers so now I can tell just by squeezing the tire, and pretty much just by riding it.

    Agreed - a lot of the 'fat bike specific' stuff is silly. But, a high(er) volume pump that moves more air with fewer pumps is nice to have if you own a fattie, even more so with 5" tires.

    The Topeak Joe Blow works well and definitely moves more air with a larger chamber than a typical floor pump. But don't expect much out of the built-in gauge - I would still plan on having a Meiser if a functional gauge is important to you.

    Joe Blow Fat and Joe Blow Mountain appear to be the same pump (same lad diameter body) but with different gauges.

    I fitted a digital gauge on my HV Lezyne, but only reads whole #s. The HV output is great nonetheless...
