I have the small or 3/4 version of this pad and have slept on it approximately 35 nights. The only signs of wear or tear is a small burn because of an ember from a fire which was entirely my fault for sitting to close.

I wouldnt go as far as to say this is a great pad but it does exactly what it is supposed to do. It is cheap, durable, insulates fairly well, and provides a little cushion.

Im young, but a side sleeper. I would wake up a few times throughout the night and have to roll over because my hip would be a little sore.

As far as insulation goes, I would consider myself an average sleeper. I would use this pad by itself down to about 40 degees before I would have to add something else for a higher R value.

So, if you buy this with high high hopes of 100% insulation and comfort you are going to be disappointed. If you buy it with reasonable expectations you will be pleasantly surprised.
