blown out on me twice

I've put it through the wringer

I have used this pad for two years. It is warm and feels great against the cold ground. I have had two catastrophic blow outs on the top of the pad. Exped replaced under warranty. Second blowout was after 7 days and it blew at 1am and sent down everywhere in the tent. It looked like it snowed inside the tent. It was catastrophic. I don't trust the product anymore. Also I don't sleep with pad inflated fully. I sleep with it where my hips are about an inch off the ground when laying on my side.

you mention the pad leaving "down" all over the tent. But this pad does not use down. Were you reviewing the exped downmat and put the review here mistakenly?

@Paul S. He said both blowouts were on the top of the pad. Maybe they were powerful enough to damage his sleeping bag (if it had down).

Little tiny package, BIG results

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

A go to for winter camping, and honestly, will probably use year round. Packs down pretty well, and the bag pump it comes with is pretty clutch. Have yet to put it through its paces but I am excited from a first look perspective.

Original Review "I have yet to use this in the field but upon receiving the pad the packaging clearly states and R-Value of 5, good for 0*F. Not -13*F / R-value 6 like Backcountry states. For $150 it's still a good deal and I do not regret the purchase. The weight to warmth ratio is still very nice, and inflating this thing is a BREEZE. Three pumps with the exped pump it came with. DO NOT INFLATE WITH YOUR MOUTH, EVER. It is stated on the package but this can not be overlooked. I will update review after field test next week. " UPDATE: For winter backpacking this is the pad to get. Big time loft, super comfy and warm. Our nearby hiking spot was about 2 degrees overnight and I was warm enough. I sleep cold, so I combined the Exped with the Thermarest Z-lite to get my R-value a bit higher. And if my sleeping bag wasn't a 20 degree I would have been much warmer. It worked out well enough. My buddy next to me had Thermarest's winter pad; it's about 1/3 of the thickness as this Exped and he was a little jealous but both of us were warm enough. Considering its weight and loft, I wouldn't go any other way. Love this pad.

Thanks for calling that out. I do see the Exped has different ratings on their site. We will get that corrected.
