This is a small sleeping pad perfect for the cold temperatures, and tested in WA winter. Some people say that any R value above something like 4 or 5 doesn’t make a noticeable difference compared to ones with R5, but I can definitely feel the difference/more (faster) warmth from this pad compared to other high R-value sleeping bags. It’s almost immediately when you lay on it, you can feel the warmth coming back. I’m 6’ and 155lbs, and tend get cold pretty fast, but this sleeping pad coupled with a proper sleeping bag and tent have really kept me warm in temperatures I thought I couldn’t handle in the winter. It’s small, light and really keeps and reflects the heat. Worth it for a good rest after a hard day of skiing, snowshoeing, or hiking in the cold weather. It is a tiny bit noisy, but that’s like almost all other sleeping pads. I’m used to the noise of the UberLite and a few others, so it doesn’t bother me much. As for fit, I barely fit on to the regular in terms of length, but I fit! My feet are on and my head isn’t sliding off the top. The valve and the inflating system are pretty nice too, especially since you’re in the cold. It takes a quite a few pumps with the handy bag, but way better than blowing up the sleeping bag myself.

I can’t believe such a high R value for something so light. It is a bit on the noisy side, but as with everything in life, sometimes there are trade-offs. For cold-weather backpacking, this is a phenomenal pad. And it is certainly a very good pad for other seasons as well.

Narrow and noisy

The good: lightweight, packs down small. The bad: expensive, extremely noisy, expect to wake up everyone in the tent when you roll over, narrow. I would not recommend

FYI, my experience has been very different. I haven't found it to be noisy at all. I suppose "too narrow" is defined by how wide you are and how much you move around when you sleep. I am 6' / 195# and a stomach sleeper and haven't had any issues. Not doubting David D's experience, just offering that mine has been different and overall, much more positive. I have many backcountry nights on this (size Long) pad and have found it to be outstanding. Hope this helps with your decision!

Is this the version with the new winglock valve, or the older version?
