    Tiny, light, comfortable, and warm.

    Nemo Equipment Inc. added PrimaLoft insulation to one of its tiniest pads so you can sleep soundlessly on the Astro Insulated Sleeping Pad when you backpack in colder weather. The durable yet plush polyester shell is tear-resistant, quiet, and very comfortable. The lateral baffles inflate up to 2.5 inches above the bumpy ground so you can sleep without a stone pressing up against your back. This pad compresses down smaller than a jet boil stove, and its stuff sack makes sure the pad doesn't bulk up your pack so you can bring as many warm layers as possible. Self-inflate this pad, or use the Disco Pad Pump (sold separately).

    Small and light

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

    I used this pad on a climbing trip where the temperature was in the high 30's Fahrenheit at night and it kept me warm an comfortable. It was easy to inflate, deflate and to pack.

    Very comfortable!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Just what I was looking for, wider than standard inflatable pads, but still packs very small. No complaints so far.

    The 1 drawback I have (this is not a complaint), is that it takes a good amount of effort to blow up. But would rather have that then the added weight of a built in pump.

    Awesome Sleeping Pad

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I love this sleeping pad. It's very well made and packs down pretty small. It doesn't take to long to inflate and is comfy. One of the things I like most about this sleeping pad is how quickly it drains air when your packing up. My Fiance has a Therm - a - Rest and it takes forever to drain all the air before you can pack it up. Overall this is a great Pad and I am very happy!

    Great pad- best sleep ever camping!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    My husband & I test drove 3 similar pads in our living room before choosing ours. The Nemo insulated Astro won by far. It was quieter & more comfortable than the Big Agnes Insulated Double Z ( too slippery & sloshy when you move- too much air movement) & the ThermaRest NeoAir Camper ( so noisy- crunchy- couldn't stand it). With the Nemo we had the best night's sleep ever on a camping trip. & it rolls up easily & in a tiny package that really fits back in the the stuff sack. An added bonus is that the ThermaRest Mini pump fits on it perfectly & inflates it to about 3/4 full. & it they didn't slide around much- nice for extra-curricular activities! Only downside for me was the pillow- I brought my own, but that's 1 of the perks of car camping!

    Really comfy pad

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I wrote a big review of the previous model of this pad. I recently had the valve break on me. It was not so much the products fault, but me biting it to open and close the valve. It was frozen in place (my bad still) and then i broke the twist part. However thanks to's old return policy, I was able to get the new version for free! So here it goes.

    I've had to now for about 2 months, and so far of the half dozen night's I've slept on it, I love it. I am 5'9" and 160lb, and a side sleeper. I toss and turn a lot at night, but amazingly, this pad works perfectly for all forms of sleep style. I have developed mixed feelings about the integrated pillow. I first thought it was the greatest thing invented, but after using it since 2011, I am not so sure any more. It doesn't offer as much support as a full pillow, and then when a pillow is added, it's too much. So now it's more of neither here or there for me, but it is a neat feature if you are a super minimalist. I haven't used this pad in the winter yet, but I have used the previous pad in the winter and it's awesome. You dont need an extra pad to insoluate you further. This is still the one stop shop pad if you are an all season kind of person. Still awesome size, and still a comfy place to rest you weary body on after a long day. This is not the lightest version, but it doesn't sound like a bag of potato chips, there's that. It is a solid pad, and comes highly recommended.

    An awesome pad

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    If only had this out about a dozen times but it's clear this is an excellent pad. It's light for an insulated pad, packs small, deflates quickly and doesn't really take much at all to inflate. But what really works for me is that lack of a 'crinkly' sound when I move.

    If you can grab this one on sale I wouldn't hesitate to pull the trigger.

    how can you inflate / deflate this nemo astro pad ? do you need a pump ?
