Best Backpacking Pad I Ever Owned
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
If you like your sleep and struggle to sleep on backpacking trips you should own this pad. I've tried them all and this one is the best. Paired with a rectangular shaped BA 800 loft down bag (Mystic SL) and there is little difference in weight from other set ups but you are 10 times more comfy than the other pads/bags. The side tubes really do help. If you were going in the winter it would require a closed cell foam pad under to get a lower than 15 F rating. Strictly a three season pad for cold sleepers.
