Why We Like The NEMO Tensor Trail Sleeping Pad

From camp to camp, this pad rolls up and stuffs away compactly, adding just a pound to our pack.

Great Pad

I upgraded to this pad after using the Klymit static v for 3 years. What a difference! Comfort, insulation, this pad is great.

This pad sold me on extra-wide comfort

Borrowed one of these from a friend for a multi-nighter. The extra width was a nobrainer and lead me to buying my own.

Awesome pad!

These are super nice pads. Quite, warm and light, you can't beat these. The pump sack is amazing. They pack great in the bag and don't take up too much space.

Great for the Pacific Northwest!

My experience with the Nemo Tensor Trail sleeping pad has been great. To start off, the vortex pump sack is fantastic for inflating the pad. The pad has a 2.6 R value, which is fantastic for the Pacific Northwest's moderate climate. I used this pad on the Lost Coast Trail and across the Trinity Alps. It has helped fantastically in all conditions. Also, bear the extra weight and get the wide pad.

Would buy this again and again!

Would buy this again and again and I have. I recently got my bike and all my gear stolen bike packing in Canada. I definitely question all my gear choices when I have to rebuy things but not this. It's so light but still tough. Has held up will even when I'm just sleeping in a ditch.

Great design and durable

I have put this through the wringer. Hunting and fishing, not picking the most ideal sleep surfaces and it has held up well. I like the included inflator bag to save my breath. It is still a bit noisy with movement but that is to be expected.

Tensor Trail Ultralight Insulated

I LOVE this pad. Easy to inflate with the included sack, nice & cushy during use. Overall easy deflation. I'm someone who mostly sleeps on my stomach or side. As I like to say...when I'm camping I'm like a pancake flipping over repeatedly throughout the night. This pad keeps me comfy in all my sleeping positions. Very happy with it.

Great Pad, Warm and Light

I'd like to start by disclaiming that I'm a big Nemo fan; I had to stop myself from getting their sleeping bag because I already own their Hornet Elite tent, this Tensor pad, the Switchback pad, their moonlite chair, and their fillo, and I didn't want to look like I robbed a Nemo display. That being said, this pad is definitely one of the nicest I've used - I'm a side sleeper, so even though I own the Nemo Switchback and enjoy it, the tensor really gives me the support I look for. It's really lightweight and doesn't take up too much room in my pack. Living in the Sonoran Desert, the Tensor Trail is preferable to the All-Season or Extreme Conditions, as I often don't need crazy insulation. After reading other reviews, I've noticed a lot of people talking about the pad leaking or getting holes - I have not had any issues yet, but I still try and baby as well as I can. In all, I think this is a great pad - I suggest the Regular Wide if you want a bit more room.
