Morgan B.wrote a review of NEMO Equipment Inc. Tensor Sleeping Pad on June 21, 2019
Familiarity: I've used it several times
I was given this product from Backcountry, but this review is my personal opinion. When the Nemo Tensor pad arrived in the mail I was pretty hesitant about it. It seemed too small to be as comfortable as the other pad I was using. I was very wrong. I just took the Nemo Tensor pad on a 3-day backpacking trip across the Wasatch Front and it was so so comfortable. The exterior of the pad is soft but not soft enough that you are sliding around all night. I was on a slight angle at our last campsite and the pad stayed put all night. I am 5'5" and the size of the Fision Regular was perfect for me. Had some room at the feet but when I take my dog, I'm sure that's where he'll end up. It was pretty warm at night while we were backpacking so I don't have anything to say about temperature rating. Everything matched what I saw on the website for this pad, but I must have missed reading about the pump sack because I was very excited when I saw it came in the box with this item. No more passing out while blowing up my pad. Okay, I have never passed out BUT it feels like I'm close every time. There was also a velcro strap that was nice to make the pad even smaller for my pack. And Nemo, thank you for making a stuff sack that is actually big enough for the pad that I don't feel like I'm going to tear the sack when I'm trying to shove the pad inside. Much appreciated.
