Gear Review

Not so impressed

I bought this pad hoping for good things. It's a tad heavy, but at the time I was backpacking during the winter and wanted some insulation. I have used this pad on 2 different trips, one a 4 day outing and one a 3 day. I have never had a night with it that I didn't have to wake up in the middle of the night to re-inflate the thing a couple times. I am not sure if it is because of the air condensing after cooling down, or if it leaks, but I always end up on the ground in this thing. It doesn't make for a restful night. I am 6'2", about 210 lbs. I bought the wide/long. I haven't checked it for a leak yet with some soapy water, but I will. I finally ended up getting a therm-a-rest trail lite. It stays tight as a drum all night.

Responded on

Ever test this thing for that leak? I am same size as you and have had no problems keeping the thing filled with air. Was a great night's sleep for me while my buddy's therm-a-rest went flat.
