My BA Clearview just arrived, so I haven't field tested it yet...but I did want to comment on how thin the material is. It's THIN. Owners of this pad will need to be extra mindful about where this is used and take extra care when handling it in camp. If you use shelters, sweep the floor as best you can because I can see how any small foreign object could puncture this pad if you're not careful. It does not come with a repair kit, so I would highly recommend picking one up from your outfitter (or the pool float section of any major retailer.) I won't be going out without a patch and some cement for this.

This is a comfy sleep sack and it will add warmth to your sleeping bag on those cold north Georgia nights, however it is not bear proof, and that's worrisome these days. I see bears in the woods all the time, and I stop and think "is this the one that's going to maul me in my sleep tonight? can he be trusted?" I've winged it thus far, but I don't have much choice until I find a bag liner made of steel mesh with carbon nanotube reinforcement and a zipoff footwell (my feet get very hot at night.)
