      I love this sleeping pad. Something I like about this compared to others is how small the ribbing is when blown up. That alone makes it more comfortable than others in it's category. It holds air all night I've never had a problem with leaking air.

      Warm, thick and light

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

      Great pad that packs down to about the size of a Nalgene bottle, easy to inflate and deflate and it goes back in the back pretty easy as long as you fold it in thirds when you roll it.

      Down to ~15 - 18*F

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I have to say that the temp rating is pretty good. We bought two for these pads for our self support backcountry trip on the Salkantay Trail in Peru in June. The first night we slept at ~12500 ft of elevation and woke up to having ice on our tent and poles. One of our trail friends said that the temp dropped to around 15 - 18*F that night and I believe it as all the streams were solid ice until mid day when the sun melted everything away. I am cold sleeper and found that I did get a little cold through my shoulders that night, with a 15*F Down sleeping bag. This was the only time that we found our self's this cold as we camped at around 8000ft to 10000 ft of elevation the rest of the trip. Overall very happy with the pad and construction and it helped to make our packs at little lighter as we went over the pass at 15200ft.

      Fits perfect inside the NEMO Dagger 2P

      Down to ~15 - 18*F

      Backpacking Comfort

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This pad offers a lot of cushion for only being 13 oz. I am a side sleeper and this pad has been great. I like the material a lot and it is not loud like other pads that I have owned. It also packs really small. The only thing that I don't really like is the valve. It is slower to inflate and deflate than some other pads but its still worth it for the comfort.

      Best Night Sleep

        I have spent a lot of time sleeping on the ground. And up until now I thought that being uncomfortable was just a part of the game. After trying out some other light weight 3+ season pads I decided to try this guy out. Needless to say I am an instant convert. Comfortable, quiet and lightweight. I look forward to many restful nights to come.

        Very compact and light

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        This pad is the perfect combination of lightweight and comfortable. It has a little less insulation than some, but that is worth it for how small it is when it rolls up.

        Slumberland awaits!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I bought this after a pretty extensive search to find a pad to make me more comfortable as a side sleeper, which can be a challenge. I am shoulder-crush sufferer! This pad overcomes many pitfalls of a backpacking pad - super thick at 3 inches, a quieter than most face fabric (no irritating potato chip bag sound!) but most off all the Spaceframe baffles allow air to move between them making the pad so much more stable than other air pads with their terrible water-bed effect. This pad has renewed my enjoyment of backcountry slumber!

        Quiet, supportive, and warm

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I returned this mummy style pad because I prefer the rectangular shape (which I had to buy elsewhere), but I can't help to write a rave review here. As someone who rolls around while sleeping, I have found this pad to be incredibly supportive, stable, and QUIET. Other models I checked out sounded like crinkly chip bags and this pad is the exact opposite. I'm also a fairly cold (side) sleeper and so far I have not experienced any cold spots or my hips hitting the ground. This pad also packs down really small and is quite light. I've used this pad with a down bag in the 30s and with a summer bag/bag liner in the 60s/70s and have been completely comfortable at both ends of the spectrum and everywhere in between. I love this pad to the moon.

        Happy Backpacker

          I bought the Nemo Tensor sleep pad on the recommendation of a fellow backpacker who was getting better sleep on a 3-day wilderness trip than me on my Big brand-name insulated sleep pad. She was right. The Nemo Tensor's 25" width, quieter material, and primaloft insulating layer makes this sleep pad super comfy even on a rooty tentsite. It's also a bit lighter weight than my other sleep pad, a plus when every ounce counts. The one drawback is that I struggle to totally deflate and pack it into its carry sack, but I expect that will improve with more practice (any excuse to go backpacking).

          I'm wondering if the sack is even meant to be used. I was successful maybe 1 out of 5 tries. I resorted to just rolling the pad up and using the strap. And judging by the pics above, that may be how it's supposed to work.
