Backcountry x NEMO Verata Sleeping Pad

Named after a Spanish goat known for its dual-purpose use, our sleeping pad offers both comfort and insulation when sleeping on the cold, hard ground. Specially designed baffles discourage your feeling the earth no matter how much you toss and turn, while a durable construction means you'll have a soft place to lie for many adventures to come.

  • Quiet and stable sleeping pad for all-season comfort and warmth
  • Wide enough for extra comfort snoozing in the backcountry
  • Durable base won't easily tear and is simple to repair
  • Spaceframe baffles prevent knees and elbows from sinking
  • Vortex pump sack offers quick, low-effort inflation
  • Laylow valves are multi-functional for customized inflation control
  • Item #BCCZ22S

I spent quite a bit of time researching sleep pads and needed it for a multiday backpacking trip. This Nemo/ BC collaboration turned out perfect. Nice size in terms of length and width (long and wide). It packed small and light and still offered QUIET comfort at night. Much quieter than the Nemo Tensor which my kids use. Kept me warm down into the upper 20's.

I'm a big fan of this pad, my previous one would often fold inward leaving my sunken into the middle. This one keeps you supported the whole night and is super easy to pack and has extra space for taller people (I'm 5'7" and have plenty of space if I want to scoot down a bit lower) I'll emphasize the packability of this, it's super easy to get the air out and stuff it into the bottom of the pack. My only issue with this pad is that the inflation process is a bit time consuming and a tad embarrassing lol. I previously had one with a pump and that took almost no time to inflate, but having to breathe into the inflation bag, it takes a bit longer and if you're prone to the giggles it'll take even longer - I get the giggles too much.

Disclaimer: I was given this product by Backcountry, but this review is my personal opinion. I've had a Thermarest ProLite pad for a few years and always had issues with its roll-up and storage after use. The Backcountry X NEMO Verata pad is longer than my Thermarest, its storage volume 25% of the Thermarest volume (did the math based on packed size and assuming perfect cylindrical shape), and the weight is the same. It's twice as thick as the Thermarest when fully inflated and is incredibly comfortable. I found deflating and roll-up to be easier, too. My only concern was blowing it up but it comes with a handy Vortex that inflation easy. I also tried inflating it on my own and it wasn't too bad. I used the Verata sleeping pad on two overnight backpacking trips as well as a multi-day car camping trip prior to submitting this review.

We have a family of 4 (2 young kids). Now when we go camping it's turned into a battle on who gets to sleep on them (versus our older and WAY less comfortable sleeping pads). These blow up easy and pack down nice and small (we only car camp with them so I can't speak to taking them on the trail). They are insulating (last week we camped and it got down to 38 and breezy) and this plus the sleeping bags kept my kids nice and warm in our tent. At 6'5" I am at the upper range of "fitting" most things. My ankles barely hang off the end when I stretch all the way out - so unless your stretched way out you should fit nicely on this pad!!

Seems to hit all the marks except that it doesn’t come with an inflation bag like the Therma-rest and the Big Agnes. How hard is it to blow up?

Bootboiler: it’s says it comes with Vortex

Very Niiice

I’ve personally never slept on any air inflated mattress or pad that didn’t lose significant air during the course of the night. Until now. I’m 250 lbs and this pad allowed me to sleep like a billy goat in a barn. Easy to inflate. Highly recommend for extra comfort.

Did you have anything else underneath you and the sleeping pad? For example a sleeping bag, quilt, or a blanket? Or was it just your back directly on the sleeping pad? Next question. In your opinion do You think the Nemo is well Worth the almost $200? I live in NE Wisconsin, by Green Bay (Go Packers) moreover our camping seasons are very limited. Unfortunately. ☹️ I just want to make sure I am finding the Great quality for the price.

I was lucky enough to be one of the Gearheads tasked with giving ideas to our product team and NEMO to help design this pad, and also got to mess around with it during a photoshoot a few months back! It's definitely much larger and more comfortable than most other backpacking pads out there. No crinkly material means it's nice and quiet so you wont wake yourself up or anyone else camping with you, and it's still not heavy for how large it is! I really love the Vortex capability to get the pad inflated quickly without having to get lightheaded. A definite add to my gear closet for more comfort oriented and calmer backpacking trips!

Reviews rarely mention the Loud Crinklies! This is a huge issue for me with my current Nemo Tensor. It's plenty comfortable, but as an active sleeper, the anxiety of waking tent neighbors every time I move keeps me up most of the night. Time to upgrade!

Tech specs mention a lifetime warranty. What does that entail? What are the stipulations etc?

>Rating:

Will there be a longer option anytime soon?

Hey Christopher, I am sorry but we may not be able to get more of these until next year. Because this is a colab with NEMO the production of new pads is limited.

>Rating:

New to this. being 25” wide would it work with a standard size quilt

Hey Randall, This size pad is a little smaller than a twin size mattress. It accommodates a single sleeper or a standard mummy bag.

Any warranty info on this pad?

Made in USA?

Hey Margaret, Im sorry at this time no this product is not made in the USA.

How similar is this pad to the Nemo Tensor insulated wide?

Hey Kevin! Yes In our colab with NEMO we asked them to use the Tensor Wide as the model. This is effectively the same pad but with our own branding.

>Rating:

Hi there, is this the same dimensions as the Regular Wide Tensor? Including the 3 inch thickness? Is the difference the 30D bottom? Also is the 21 oz weight with the stuff sack and pump bag or without? Thanks!
