Familiarity: I've used it several times

I go backpacking a lot with my wife and we have two large size (25x77) neo air pads. This thing is great. It takes about 3 minutes to inflate each pad to about 90 percent. So far I got about 10 inflates out of my set of rechargeables (eneloops) and it is still going strong.

Works great though you can get by without it. I think the pad might last longer with it, since you are not blowing moisture into it.

One thing that I wish I could do is reverse the flow and deflate the pad. I don't think that would with current generation of Thermo-a-rest. Actually, it would be even better if Neo Air had a deflate valve, like most of Exped pads.

This is a very deceiving chart. It is drawn so that you many infer that Powershield is almost as breathable as 200 fleece. If you look closer you will see that 200 fleece rating should be completely off the chart. It is rated as 250 units, compare to 7 for PowerShield material. That means that the best powershield is 20 times less breathable than the 200 fleece. If the chart were drawn to scale it would be hard to see the difference Powershield, PowerShield pro and the garbage bag. This is ridiculously bad marketing .

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have been wearing these for almost a year. I bought them for casual wear. But the shoes work surprisingly well on the trail. I have (and love) the ankel support of my Quest 3d for harder treks. But Exit 2 aeros are perfectly good light hiking shoes. I actually like the old school lacing system as well and all the mesh is good for warmer weather.
The arch support could be better, so 4 starts.
