I bought this pad to use on a week-long bike tour. We tent-camped each night after riding 45-80 miles a day. I have had serious back problems so I was worried about my comfort, but I slept well. Like other reviewers have noted, it's big- this pad would not work if you are backpacking. But I thought it was easy to inflate, deflate, and pack around with my other gear. I'm very pleased with its performance and comfort.
