This pad contains a healthy dose of Primaloft insulation which gives it an R-value of 4.5 for increased warmth on chilly nights, and a quick inflation valve makes blowing it up or deflating it a breeze.

I'm relatively young and my experience sleeping on this pad feels like it's added some years on me. The vertical tube shape is not comfortable, very stiff. I put in less air to make it bearable. I have made it work for a few trips but I am definitely on the market to replace it. It's also not very warm. Thankfully I got it on sale so it isn't too much of a loss. Don't pay full price for this. It works but it's not ideal for maximum comfort in the backcountry.

Are you a side sleeper?

I have both the regular 20" and wide 24" regular length. I like the 24" width, because I can lay on my back and my elbows are on the pad. With the 20" wide pad they tend to slide off the sides and drop to the ground & that is annoying. The valving arrangement works great and using the Pump House Pump bag worked fairly well (big improvement over blowing your brains out). Deflation went well. I think for the van I'll use the foam pad, as it doesn't "bounce" as much. Got them both on sale so the price was tolerable.


Insulated Air Core Ultra Sleeping Pads

Like the Air Core Ultra, the Insulated Air Core Ultra offers unparalleled comfort at an incredible price. This light and compact three-season insulated pad has been completely redesigned from the inside out and R-Value rated by a third party. Designed with a smooth and stable sleeping surface made with durable nylon rip-stop and larger outside tubes to cradle you on top. Warm and highly packable insulation on top and bottom make this air pad lighter on your pack than most in its class. Save your breath for the adventure ahead, and use the included upcycled pad inflation sack to inflate.


If I am 5’5” would I be a good fit for the petite size which goes up to 66 in (5’6”), or would I be better off going with the regular size pad which is 72 in long?
