Having read other review accounts herein where this blanket is used as a light weight ground cloth, I decided to give it a try expecting the product to be more durable then the .99 cent space blankets found at WalMart. After three nights of use with a Big agnes Air Core pad laid on top a lot of the silver coating has rubbed of and permantly attached itself to the black bottom of the Air Core Pad. I'm afraid to use it any loger as a ground cloth as I'm not sure if there is a some sort of reaction going on between the Air Core's 70D nylon bottom.

I have used the pad three nights on two different outings. All three nights were ~45 degrees. I'm a skinny 150 lb 6' 52 year old man who is cold nature. Pad was good at 45 degrees with a 20 degree rated sleeping bag. While I have read reviews herein that the pad is good down to the 30s ... I would not count on it unless your heavily insulated with body fat. I guess, for me, the leave pad at home tempurature will be around 40 degrees. As for inflation time count on 5 minutes or more. Stuff size never folds back down to size received as there seems to always be a little air left inside to prevent that final fold. Stuffs slightly larger then the nalgene bottle. Moisture was an issue even at 45 degrees. Follow the other review suggestions to rid the moisture. Inflate firm then lay on it and let a little air out unit that sweet spot is sensed and your good for one good nights rest. Good price point.
