I get it; this pad is very light and compact and that means compromise. I received a few days ago and plan to take it out for an overnight next weekend for a first run so expect that this reveiw will be appended.
Just from my initial home set up and trial, I am wondering whether is this 10 or 12 oz worth even carrying. This is not like a Thermarest where most of the inflation is done by the expansion of the internal baffeling. Once inflated by my own hot air, I tested with a few small things underneath and you can feel them all. I don't know of an outdoor environment where this pad would provide a benefit over sleeping on the ground. Maybe a cold but flat rock. The skin does not seem tough enough for any abrasion. More like a mylar balloon with some light foam in it.
So, initially, very skeptical but I am also pleased with all of my BC/Stoic gear experiences so we shall see.
