When you're covering multiple miles a day on your backpacking trip, you need a comfortable sleeping surface to recover on, but you also don't want to be burdened with excess weight and bulk. Luckily, Sea To Summit has you covered with the Ultralight Sleeping Pad. This summer backpacking pad is ultralight (as the name suggests) and packs up extremely small for easy storage and carrying in your stuff-to-the-brim pack.
Air Sprung cells evenly distribute pressure so the pad conforms to your body for a comfier feel than traditional baffle construction. Tough nylon fabric won't get shredded when you're sleeping on rough, rocky surfaces. The multi-function valve has a one-way valve to make inflation easier, and it has a button you can press to slowly release air for fine-tuned comfort. When you have to pack up in a hurry, a rapid air dump port lets you deflate quickly. It also comes with a stuff sack for convenient storage and a repair kit so you can fix tears in the field when you accidentally slice your pad open while cutting avocados in your tent.

- Q & A
The 4th one I've purchased!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
One for me, one for him, and two for friends. We're madly in love with these things - we're getting better, more comfortable sleep while taking up less pack space and weight. By an order of magnitude. No more rolled up pads that accomplish the same comfort as a yoga mat. Our only concern with these was how they might hold up to giant dog paws....initially we kept the dogs off of them while we did car camp trips, but at least a dozen backpacking trips later they've been no worse for the wear of two 85lb dogs stuffed in a 2person tent with us. Seriously. Get this. Get one for everyone you know. Even people who swear they're not sleeping on the ground anymore!
And is this pad noisy when moving around? Some ultralight bags will wake up everybody in Camp if the sleeper rolls over.
What is the thickness of this pad when fully inflated? Also please explain what is an integrated Airstream pump?
