    Exactly what you would expect

      This mat worked great when i took a road trip with some buddies this summer to big bend and white sands new mexico. it was so comfortable i never had trouble falling asleep once (usually a common theme for me). Its easy go roll up, and doesn’t take up too much space. for car camping and short camping trips i think its an awesome product at a fair price.

      Car Camping

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Nice and compactable pads. Got two of them to make one bed. The foam could be a bit more thicker but does it jobs from keep the sticks and rocks out of your back.

      so far so good

        So far, I'm liking this pad. It is very comfortable (in the living room) fully inflated. It has a bit of a self-inflating capability, but I wouldn't recommend relying on that. It definitely still needs to be blown up to get the full capacity. Comes with a repair kit, which is a nice touch. Overall, good car camp pad at a great price.

        Bought as a gift

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

        Bought this as a gift for my mother she was going on a car camping trip she wasn't super impressed with it I have not tried it personally; she said it got the job done but definitely could be better.

        broke after two uses.

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

        I liked the sleeping pad upon arrival. First night was OK second night of backpacking trip noticed a huge bubble on pad, but still worked. second time camping pad only inflates with a huge bubble on one end.

        Good for Car Camping. Not Lightweight.

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

        Bought this for my youngest son for when we go car camping. I expected this to pack down much smaller. But it is pretty bulky. I have 4 other pads that will fold in half and roll up to the size of half gallon of milk. And there is really nothing lightweight about this, unless you are comparing it to a an actual air mattress. It will be good for car camping, but I will need something else for backpacking.


        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Love this. Use it for car camping and it's magical. Just a little more squish under me for a good night's sleep. I open the valve and let it self-inflate, add a couple big breaths for more firmness, and it never leaks. When I deflate, I roll it up once while kneeling on it to push all the air out, then open it back up and roll it tighter to get it to fit back in the bag. Haven't had any issues at all. Effortless to use, worth every penny.

        Car Camping On a Budget

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Got this pad passed down to me when my older brother upgraded his sleeping set up and it's a good starter pad. Inflates and rolls up pretty easy but not super pack-able by any means. Something smaller and lighter weight is on my radar for longer backpacking trips but for an affordable and durable car camping pad this is a solid option.

        Not bad, but not so light

          I've used this pad a few times. It is far more comfortable than the cheap foam pad it replaced. It does the job and seems well made. My only complaint is the weight. I ordered the regular size pad which weighs a shade over 2 pounds. As a hiker I do not consider that lightweight. Still I'm happy with it and do recommend it for car camping (perhaps not thick enough for this situation) or hiking on a strict budget where saved ounces aren't worth an extra 20 dollar bill.

          Great Car Camping Companion

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          Quite frankly, I couldn't argue with the price of this snooze pad and while I do really, really love my Therm-a-Rest Prolite pad when backpacking, it doesn't exactly suit my needs when car camping - i.e. I wanted a little more cush underneath me. I actually bought two of these pads, and then picked up some coupler straps that allow me to rig the pads together and prevent the whole "crack-of-doom" situation that often happens when camping with two dogs and another person. For two people, the pads strapped together are pretty comfy. Albeit, I might pick up a third for the dogs so they can stop stealing my precious snooze space.

          In sum though, the Lightweight Air Series Pad abides! They're relatively lightweight and roll-up fairly well considering the fact that they're hefty car camping pads. They do self-inflate... however.... that leads me to my next point.

          So word to the wise, the pad will come wrapped in plastic, rather than its stuff sack (which it has, along with a repair kit). However, within the stuff sack are instructions on how exactly you should inflate this pad for the first time, which I strongly recommend following!

          Other than that, this pad is comfortable, easy-to-use and great for car camping.

          Comfy pad for car camping

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          I got this to have something nicer than my backpacking pad when I'm pitching a tent within a ten-minute walk of a car. It's too bulky for me to want to take it into the back country, but it's perfect for car camping, and I've used it with overnight temps falling into the mid-20s. I found it to be sufficient insulation from the ground on that trip.

          Great for backpacking

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          Awesome product. First time ever using a self inflating Air pad. It worked great just open it up let it roll out and in 30 mins its full. If you want it more firm give one breath and its full and firm. Very well insulated I took it to Yosemite so it got down to the 30s at night and it keep everything under me warm. It folds up very easy and is very light. Good product.

          Easy and Awesome

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          I've never used a small pad like this before - always just brought extra blankets for under my sleeping bag or used an air mattress. This is the perfect blend of the two.
          Literally effortless to inflate - open the valve, wait a couple minutes for it to self-inflate, blow a breath or two to finish it off, done. Just as easy to deflate - open the valve, start rolling it up. I found it's easiest to roll it up while letting out the air, then close the valve, and then re-roll it tighter so that I can easily put the elastic bands around it and fit it into the carrying bag.
          It was just enough padding to make my car camping night nearly as soft as sleeping at home, despite lumps and bumps from the latches and mats and junk in the car. I imagine it would be just as helpful to soften up a rocky spot of ground in the tent. So glad I bought this!

          Great value, even for a big guy

            This is my first sleeping pad, so far im pretty happy with it. I'm a pretty big guy 6'3" and 210lbs, and it for the most part supports my weight. I think if I really wanted a super comfortable setup id go with the air matress type. But this pad is great for ease of use and its durable. Its also easy to deflate as well. packing it up only takes a minute and a half.

            Comfy and a little clunky

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

            This pad was perfect to sleep on, extremely comfortable and large, worked very well for a camping trip on a rock beach up north. Only downside is the size of the pad when rolled up, it's a little too large and must be strapped to the outside of the pack, but definitely worth the carry!

            Solid Pad for the Price

            • Familiarity: I've used it several times

            I recently bought this as a second pad for casual camping. The pad I use for Backpacking is the Therm-a-Rest ProLite 4 Sleeping Pad. Head to head, the Therm-a-Rest takes comfort, packability and weight, but not by much. Were the ALPS takes the cake is in price. As a casual camping pad, it is easily a 4 star pad.

            The ALPS pad is comfy, durable, and packs up easily. It is more bulky than higher end pads I've used when it is packed up, but it is not any more bulky than those foam pads you see around. I would take this pad any day over one of those.

            It comes with some nice elastic straps and a bag for backing.

            All in all, this is a great pad, If you aren't ready to drop a chunk of change on a Therm-a-Rest or Sea to Summit, pick up one of these and you won't regret it.

            What are the tech specs on this pad? It's helpful to know weight and size - both inflated and rolled. Thanks!
