Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I agree with the best and the worst reviews here. It is the best mattress I have ever used. It lasted for something between 25 and 30 nights (a few years worth) of use before the baffle delaminated. I used it primarily in a tent but also in a hammock and folded it into a sling that turned it into a chair, I suspect the latter may have been a little heavy handed for a UL product. Anyway, I called support, who gave me an address to mail it to for inspection. $13 for postage and two weeks or so later I had a brand new mattress, despite being passed the 2yr guarantee.

This is definitely not bomb proof, but it definitely IS compact, light, and super comfortable. If it weren't for the customer service, I could not recommend this mattress.

I wouldn't recommend using this for a long through hike since it seems prone to delaminating at anytime.

Best for light weight, comfort, short trips.

These are a great buy, in my opinion. I love the ability to hike through overgrown trails without dew soaking my pants/socks. Wearing these with shorts protects your lower leg from thorns, branches and what not while wearing shorts... a bit more circulation. As far keeping you dry during creek crossings, I cant really comment. I have relatively low profile boots (Vasque Breeze GTX) and so the seal around the cuff isnt all that tight (i may swap my Large Verglas for Mediums). However, I hiked for a couple days on snow covered trails- as much as 8 inches - and never felt damp on the inside.

All in all, these are a great item to have on a multiday trip to avoid scrapes and scratches. A MUST for hiking in snow.

Picked one of these on SAC. Got my my REI Sub Kilo +20 down bag AND a thermolite reactor liner into the 10 L Sac. Granted, I sit on it while I tighten the straps, and when I did this while buzzed the attachment point for one strap ripped but it still works fine and did not compromise the waterproofing.

TIP: tighten each strap a little bit and rotate trough all 4 rather than cinching one down all the way.
