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

I had called and talked with one of the Backcountry gear experts. I explained that I was an insomniac and tried a lot of different pads to no avail. I am a side sleeper, my hip or shoulder always bottom out on the ground through the pad, this causes me to wake up sore and I can't go back to sleep. The gear guru assured me I would not have this problem with this pad. This past week I had a chance to try it out. For me I found it took 17 breaths to blow it up each time consistantly that I tried. I am 5'10" 185lbs, muscular build being a trainer. While another 6" in width would be perfect I was very comfortable sleeping on this pad. I did not bottom out my hip/shoulder as with previous pads. I actually slept through the night which is rare for me. I was hesitant at first but he reassured me I would be happy so I took him at his word, at present I can not argue with him as it worked as he described (something I rarely find these days). It packs down small, taking up little space Granted this was my first outing with it and time may tell a different story, however I am grading it based on the fact that it solves the concerns I had when I called for advice. My hip/shoulder does not bottom out and I don't see that changing in the future short of a leak. I camp alone and therefore have no complaints from a noisey standpoint although did not find this to be a problem myself. Jeff

I ordered this shirt in a large as I am at the high end of the medium and low end of the large. I usually wear a medium in these shirts but liked the color and this was only available in a large. It is a bit big on me and runs true to size. Still performs perfectly keeping me warm when I am winter paddling or snowshoeing. I have several of these shirts from over the years and the new material is really comfortable next to your skin.
