I actually got this pad for my little Stafford bull terrier to use when we camp. I wanted something that would keep him warm and protect the floor of my tent. For $25 bucks I couldn't go wrong. Im glad i pulled the trigger and picked this up. the first time I inflated and he realized the pad was his he started jumping and rolling all over it. I think the material will hold up well, if it could hold his weight and take his rough housing it will hold up with no problems. It packs down small and still covers a decent amount of space. I could see myself going to this pad in an emergency. I thought about getting a second one for that reason but with the thickness I don't think its really worth it. For me a 1 inch pad just isnt going to cover up or protect me from the ground. But if your under 200 lbs and shorter then 5' 10 this might be great option!! I give it 5 stars because it filled all my expectations

I'm giving this 3 stars because I was told by the rep here it was a good combo pack and car camping tent. When I first got this tent I was shocked how big it is packed up. the first time I set it up I had some issues with the Hubbed poles, Its tricky trying to get them all pegged into the corners. After that it was a little easier. the cross poles that hold up the doors are a great idea but I still dont know if they are ment to run under or over the top of the other poles. then it was time to set up the Fly, I had a lot of issues trying to get this set up. once you match up the sides the real trick is pulling the fly to the other side. It kept getting caught up on the over hang poles and I was nervouse I would pull to hard and puncture the fly. the free gear loft is ok, It hangs very tight. the free ground cloth was another issue, have to check some of my other cloths because I was shocked to see that Marmont didnt seam tape it?? it would have been nice if they went the extra mile. Oh also there is a big seam about 3/4th of the way on the floor and on ground cloth. I could actually match them up. I would just feel a lot more secure if the floor was a true bath tube design.

Over all its a good summer car camping tent. Not a bad buy if your looking for something to get you threw a few trips over the summer. the extra space marmont brags about also comes with the coast of a big and heavy pack size. I think Im going to return it and look for a 3 man. the MSR Motha Hubba or a Big Anges might have been more of what I was looking for

so I just got the new Talon 22 pack and I'm blown away on how perfect this pack is. I have been looking for a good day pack for some time now and I found it! Every time I go somewhere I always seem to over pack, but this bag gives me enough room to get everything I need into it no matter what season, My 2 1/2 L Hydration pack with insulation on it fits perfect, and the pack even has a strap to hold it in place preventing the bottle from slipping down as you drink. First looking at this pack it doesn't seem to have many pockets, but after you pack it for the first time you realize there are over 11 pockets to stash your gear. The pack fits very close to the hips. The pack also fits narrow on your back keeping the center of gravity closer to you and preventing the pack from shifting and throwing of your balance. A narrow pack also allows you better flexibility while walking or climbing tough terrain. I would highly recommend this pack to a friend for a day out on the trail. It will also make a good overnight bag fitting maybe 3 pairs of jeans 3 shirts and a extra pair of shoes with no problem. I have been looking for the perfect day pack for sometime now and I finaly found it in the Osprey Talon 22 5 stars from me
