Lightweight and easy

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

Good pad! I ordered the long for my 5'9 boyfriend since it was on sale, and it was a bit tall for him, but we had a 3 person tent, so it wasn't a huge deal to make it fit. It looks much longer flat than when inflated, but all in all, it didn't lose air throughout the cold night and I would recommend this product.

Got it on sale and worth every penny

I like the fact that it is very light and packable. It can be a hassle to inflate, but much better than blowing up single cells, like the antique it replaced! It may lose air through the night, but not so much that I noticed in my sleep or that I was sore or on the ground in the morning. All in all, for the sale price, I feel it's a good/average pad that is easy to pack and light to carry.

leaks, get a Thermarest instead

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

It's very puffy and comfortable but it leaks and won't hold air all night. My daughter used it on a family camping trip and 1/2 way through the night she was on the hard ground. I've had thermarest self inflating pads for 10+ years that still hold air and work perfectly this one was bad when received brand new. I'm sending it back. Save your money and get a better pad. I'm not one of those annoying negative reviewers, just stating the facts.

Lightweight and comfortable

I bought this for my daughter on her research trips. Loves it! Comfortable for those nights sleeping either in the woods or on the gravel.

A Bed for Your Budget

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

This is a durable, thick pad that has just about every feature you would need for a beginning backpacking set up. The pump took me a while to figure out, but basically just give it some CPR (or check out YouTube) and you'll get it figured out.

Great Pad and Great Price

I've used it several times

I'm not sure why you would need a different pad than this. It's light and packs down to the size of a nalgene essentially. I doesn't deflate during the night, and it's comfortable. One thing that's kind of a pain is the inflating. The built-in pump works great and doesn't take too long, but can be a little tiring. Also it seems a little high off the ground once inflated but it's not bothersome. I would recommend it to someone not willing to spend 100+ on an inflatable sleeping pad.

Counting Sheep

I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

You'll be counting sheep in no time on this sleeping pad, it is 3.5 inches thick! This blows up really easily, and comes with a little patch kit in case you develop a leak. I'd recommend this to any beginning backpacker since it is not crazy light but it is pretty comfortable.

Comfy, light, and cheap

I've used it several times

I think this pad is a great value compared to comparable light-weight pads. Packs down to a nice size. Very comfy, durable, although i would agree it is slightly on the narrow side. The pump is extremely nice to have, works well and doesnt add much weight or bulk. Not intended for cold weather camping.

What size does it pack down to?

comfortable and lightweight

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

I can't believe how lightweight it is and how easy it is to get it to pack down into the little stuff sack it comes with. I would give it 5 stars, but I wish the regular was a little wider- I had to get the bigger size to get the width I wanted. Comfortable for side sleeping and only takes 2 minutes to inflate with a cpr compression motion.

Impressive Comfort

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

I am incredibly pleased with how this compares to my super cheap Styrofoam pad. The horizontal bars do indeed provide extra support for side sleepers. Only real issue I had was that I had never used a foam pump like the one in the pad. One quick YouTube tutorial later and I was set!
