    Details

    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).

    What do you think about this product?

    Have questions about this product?

    Good but needs improvement.

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

    First the good:

    1. Comfortable. Horizontal baffles make it better for side sleepers.
    2. Small, compact and lightweight.
    3. The mattress itself seems well made

    The gripes

    1. Not the easiest to inflate and deflate. It doesn't work well with inflation devices. Air leaks out when using an inflation device. Plus the valve is kinda cheap. A better quality valve would be nice.
    2. Addition of a second valve for deflation.
    3. Pretty narrow in size.

    Great Product

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is a great pad. It's super comfortable, light and very packable. Many of the air baffle pads are quite loud when you toss and turn in your sleep but this one is not. I love being able to get a great night sleep in the outdoors. I highly recommend this product for fair weather camping.

    Good pad

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

    Super comfy, doesn't deflate like my thermarest used to and is a lot more supportive for side sleepers like myself, comes with a patch kit too. Lightweight for backpacking, I don't think it would keep you too warm in any winter camping but it's great for backpacking in the summer!
    It's also really long, longer than I need, I'm 5'8 and there's still a good 4 inches left at the bottom when I stretch out all the way.
    Id give it five stars but I was really disappointed that the color isn't what was pictured above. the reason I got this rather than another one was because it looked like a dark purple/blue which I loved! But the real color is what is shown in the video of the pad, (which I didn't watch before...) much lighter and just boring blah blue. I know colors shouldn't matter too much but it was still disappointing!

    game changer

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    We love our Nemo's. Bought an early one when they had one type and put it through it's paces. My husband tried a big agnes and it had a whole on night two and it's loud. The nemo's are great and durable and they will replace the whole thing if it is the nozzle. Heck, I use this at home if my back is out!

    Do it.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    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.

    A little over average.... MEH

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

    I used this in Coyote Gulch UT. Temperature at night was in the 40's.

    Pros: Easy to blow up and compacted!

    Cons:Really pricey!!!

    Unanswered Question

    I am three months into a backpacking trip that has had me using this pad almost every night. It's super light weight, durable, comfortable, but I am wondering if there is there any way to clean out the inside? After blowing this thing up every night for months it's begun to collect a lot of condensation on the inside. So far it hasn't been a problem - the material is watertight so no moisture leaks out - but it's kind of gross and I'm just worried about mildew forming if it stays wet. I'm sure this is a problem with other inflatable sleeping pads too but I couldn't find any solutions from a few Google searches.

    Thanks!
