A comfortable sleeping pad that does the job.
- Weight: 11/ 16/ 22 oz (S/ R/ L)
- Length: 47/ 72/ 77 inches long
- Thickness: 1 inch
- R-value: 2.4
- Shape: Semi-rectangular/ Mummy
- Type: Open-cell foam
- MSRP: $80-110
What I Like:
- Weight: The short size pad is very lightweight! Even the regular size, at 1 lb is a decent weight for a backpacking sleeping pad.
- Warmth: I've used this pad in warm conditions, and my family/ friends have used it in colder conditions (high 20s - low 30s) without complaint.
- Comfort: This pad is ok in terms of comfort level. I would recommend it for back or stomach sleepers only. Side sleepers will want more padding.
What I Don't Like:
- "Self-inflating": I have not had luck actually getting this thing to self-inflate. And, if you arrive to camp late and want to go right to bed, you're going to have to blow into it anyways.
- Packability: Compared to my NeoAir XLite, this is not as packable because of the foam inside, but it will pack down if you wrestle with it.
Overall, this is a very decent pad for the price. It will suit people well in 3 seasons. For myself, it has ended up in my "loaner gear" pile that I let friends and family members use if they don't have a pad. I prefer to use my NeoAir XLite because it is lighter and warmer and more comfortable than this pad.
