Gear Review

Not sure about Durabilty

I didn't quite expect this pad to be built with such light guage vinyl. I am concerned about how long it will last. My best guess, and I'm careful with my gear, is that it should get me through ONE season of use before it springs a leak (the weak point is the vinyl around the valve). If that lenght of longevity is enough, Then be assured you'll be carrying the lightest and most comfortable air pad down the trail. It's 15oz on the dot within it's stuff sack! (20x72 version)

Update
AS of my last week-long trip in late summer, the Clearview developed a slow leak that I could not repair. While it lasted, this pad was very comfortable (although not quite as comfortable as my BA Insulated Air Core) and was very near the lightest air core pad I've yet to carry. I also found it much quieter than the ThermoRest NeoAir.
I would still recommend this pad to the weekend warrior type, but not for anyone doing 35 plus nights annually on it.
