this pad blows

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I was hoping that the Stoic pad was going to self inflate like the thermarest. Memory foam is not new technology after all. Really not happy that I have to blow this thing up at intervals because it is too big to blow up all at once. Now I have to look for a fitting that might fit the valve so that I can blow it up with a foot pump.

Responded on

Don't bother blowing it up. It just balloons. The air doesn't add cushion other than helping fluff up the material? I think the valves are more for getting all the air out to allow it to store a bit smaller.
