Tiny, light, and incredibly comfortable.
After miles of rigorous hiking, you need a restful recovery. The Nemo Equipment Inc. Astro Air Sleeping Pad gives you just that. The durable yet plush polyester shell is tear-resistant, quiet, and very comfortable. The lateral baffles inflate up to 2.5 inches above the bumpy ground so you can sleep without a stone pressing up against your back. This pad compresses down smaller than a Jetboil stove, and its stuff sack makes sure the pad doesn't bulk up your pack when space is something to worry about, which it basically is on every backpacking trip. Inflate this pad yourself, or get the Disco Pad Pump (sold separately).

I love this pad. It rolls up smaller than my older 1.5 inch inflatable pad and 10 times as comfortable. It also rolls up easily and seems to be pretty durable. The built in pillow is a great addition and makes it a better choice over other similar 3 inch pads. The length is plenty for me at 6'0" tall. I don't roll off of it during the night. I can sleep comfortably on my side. The pad does exactly what it's suppose to do. It's simple. And it just works. I'm looking forward to using more on backpacking and bike touring trips. Buy the insulated version if you want it for winter camping.

I used this in Coyote Gulch UT. Temperature at night was in the 40's.
Pros: Easy to blow up and compacted!
