Even College kids can afford it!
I bought this pad because at the time it was the only pad i could afford. That being said absolutely love it! It is super light weight and is just as comfortable as most of the other pads out there.Since it is made out of foam i can put it through all sorts of abuse (tree branches, campfires, friends, etc.) and not have to worry about punctures or rips. If i want to hang out around the campfire i can fold it up and simply sit on it. When camping in cold weather it adds a great layer of insulation between you and the ground and it works well as an added layer of comfort underneath an inflatable pad. The one downside is that it doesn't fold up as small as the inflatable pads, however what it lacks in compression it makes up for in weight savings. Best 30 dollars i have ever spent on camping gear.
