Really comfortable

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The plastic on this pad is a little bit stretchy, so it feels softer to me than other non-foam pads. It packs up smaller than my 3/4 length therm-a-rest and is MUCH more comfortable. I like the stickyness of it because it is less like to slide around. It can be a little loud if you are shuffling around, but that won't last long since it's so comfortable.

UPDATE: I got a hole in one of my old-model clearview pads on the triangular block near the nozzle. This is after probably 30 nights of use. Patched it with some glue and a patch from a different BA pad (air core). In the more recent clearview pads that you can buy now they've reinforced the nozzle area with a black triangle of nylon or something to prevent this issue.
