    Details

    Never again wake up and wonder where your sleeping pad went.

    ALPS Mountaineering gave the Comfort Series Air Pad a slew of features to ensure you sleep comfortably and stay on your pad all night. This inflatable pad includes an open-cell foam interior for increased insulation and faster self-inflation. Just open the valves and let it sit. A few puffs of air is all that's needed to finish the job. ALPS Mountaineering added PVC dots to the bottom of the Comfort Series Air Pad to keep it in place on your tent's floor. They also included a brushed top fabric that keeps you from slipping off in the middle of the night.

    Comfortable

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

    Bought two of these for my wife and I, it was pretty comfortable, way better than what I expected. The downside was the self inflating either doesn't work or takes a long time so we decided to just inflate it ourselves, doesn't take too long if you do it yourself so don't think its a reason not to buy.

    For the price I think we got more than what we paid for.

    Heavy but Comfy - Good Value

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

    I am a big guy, 6'4" with broad shoulders, and sleep on my side. So I struggle to fit on these smaller pads designed to go backpacking with. The XL version is great, at 30" wide and a generous 3" thick. If you give it time to fully inflate, it is quite comfortable for a self-inflating pad. Just realize there is a lot of foam in there to absorb air so, even with two nozzles, it takes a good long while to come up to full inflation. You also have to leave it open for about a day when you first get it before it will reach full inflation. The nozzles are very nicely designed with metal fittings that should last a while. The pad material itself seems fine, although perhaps not quite as burly and bomb-proof as my now 20 year old Therm-a-rest that is still going strong. The felt on top feels nice against your skin if you are just using a quilt, although I wonder about how it will stay clean over time. I think I need to encase it in a sheet or something that will be easier to wash. That said, I like the little bumps on the bottom to keep it from sliding around, they do seem to work reasonably well to keep the pad in place. I have had zero problems rolling mine up. It does take a lot of time to do, however. Basically you open the nozzles and then very SLOWLY roll the mat up, pausing every few seconds to let the nozzles catch up. Roll it up a bit, then wait until the nozzles stop hissing to continue your rolling. Basically, there is a huge amount of air in there and it takes a while to get it all out through those small nozzles. If you try to rush it, you'll leave a lot of air in it and then it will be too thick and then impossible to get back into the stuff sack. You also need to use your knee to keep it in place as you wind it up. It does come with a small repair kit.

    It kind of fits the profile of a lot of other Alps stuff - quality that isn't the top of the line, but substantially better than what you expect to get, given how little you are paying. I am sure that if I spent 2x-3x as much, then I might now have a pad that is slightly more comfortable or slightly more durable, but this thing is probably 90% of the way to those super expensive pads.

    If you don't need to carry it far, get one. If you are backpacking - keep looking. Not only is it heavy, but it is also huge, even rolled up.

    Wise Choice

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    This is a wise choice for a beginner backpacker, it is not lightweight by any means but is quite comfortable. This pad features an air, foam, combo to provide a good night's sleep for campers. I'd recommend this to people who car camp primarily.

    Nice Pad

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    It was finally time to upgrade my sleeping pad and I am glad I chose this one. It is super comfy and inflates pretty quickly on its own. I had to add a little air prior to going to sleep. It rolls up pretty compactly.

    Car camp pad

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

    Great pad for car camping. Rolled/packed size is large so you would not want to try and tie it to a back pack. Super comfortable and wide so there is no wiggling off the pad at night.

    great pad! moab camping trip

      This pad was fairly priced and well built. Not the smallest pad but we were car camping in Moab. The top material is soft almost 'suede-like' and the grey is a nice neutral color. Hasn't lost any air for me while sleeping on it yet. Would definitely recommend to a friend.

      Great brand that stands by their products.

      Great for the price

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This is a good pad. I was comfortable sleeping on it and it was easy to roll/unroll. I've set it up in the day and in the middle of the night. It's really easy, durable, and doesn't slide around in the tent. I use it for some added comfort on car camping trips. Do plan on backpacking due to size and weight. At this price point I recommend.

      Great pad but not for ultra-light pack

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This is a great pad, made of great construction. I am 5' 10" and bought the Long and it fits perfectly. The top of the pad is soft and velvety, and the materials are strong. Holds air well and is comfortable for sleeping (a little rough if you're only a side sleeper). Quiet to sleep on and rolls up nicely. It is not small when packed, so it's not for ultra-light backpacking, but it's a great all-around pad to use for any camping. I like it so much, I pack it outside my pack and use it as often as my inflatable one.

      Front Country Camping Cool

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This sleeping pad is very comfortable and packing it is easy (the sack is generously sized!).
      The only downsides are the size when it is rolled up (the same size as my 2-person tent, definitely not for backpacking) and that it is not very wide and if you move, you'll roll off of it.

      Stays put

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

      I have a tendency to move in my sleep so I ventured to try the comfort series pad. Each time I wake up still on my pad and it hasn't budged once. The only issue I've had is sleeping on my side. After so long it becomes uncomfortable but if I stay on my bag, it's terrific. A factor to consider is I was staying at a campground with pea gravel sites so on a different softer material, it may sleep better for side sleepers. This pad is pretty well insulated and I never felt the cold through it once. It rolls up fairly small and is not as bulky as I feared when ordering it. Overall, good pad and great price.

      Pretty basic, but really good

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This is a great air pad that does it's job. I like that it comes with a stuff sack and some elastic straps to keep it nice and bundled when not in use. It is easy to air up and comfortable. I pair the pad with the ALPS Mountaineering Lightweight Cot and enjoy camping more than ever.

      great for backpacking

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I am 5'11" 195 pounds. I was concerned about this pad being too small and thin. Even though a larger pad would have been more comfortable, this pad was adequate and the fact that it was lighter and not as wide, made it a perfect choice for backpacking. The rough exterior was a good bonus as it prevented "sleeping bag slide". Over all, a good sleeping pad for the price.

      Great pad for car camping

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      As others have said, this is a comfortable pad, but it is on the heavier and bulkier side. I would say it's a great pad for car camping, but not for backpacking.

      Happy back

        I bought this pad to use on a week-long bike tour. We tent-camped each night after riding 45-80 miles a day. I have had serious back problems so I was worried about my comfort, but I slept well. Like other reviewers have noted, it's big- this pad would not work if you are backpacking. But I thought it was easy to inflate, deflate, and pack around with my other gear. I'm very pleased with its performance and comfort.

        Excellent night sleep.

          Wow. Very comfortable sleeping pad. Don't plan on carrying this one on the trail, unless it is the only thing you are bringing. I used mine the first time, and have not rolled it back up. It is hard to get back in the bag. If your tent is not as long as this pad, don't plan on folding the edge over on the end because it is pretty stiff. I usually wake up all the time while camping, not on this pad. Zzzzzzz.

          I just bought the XL but it doesn't fit in my waterproof rollbag for my motorcycle. Is it okay to fold it in half and roll it into a different compression sack or will that be detrimental to the foam inside?

          Hey Curtis,



          You can definitely fold it into what ever shape you need to.



          It won't harm the foam. But I would avoid storing the pad like that for extended periods of time (when you're not using it between trips).



          Between trips I leave mine with the valves open (so air can go in and out) and leave so the foam is fully expanded.



          When I go on trips, to aid in compression, I'll remove as much air as possible then close off the valve and fold into what ever shape I need.



          Sometimes I put my pads in a stuff sack, other times I use to line a pack as a frame if I removed the actual stays to reduce weight.



          Shoot me an email anytime you have questions!
