comfortable but need a 5-10 minutes blowing by manpower. The more you blow in, the more comfortable.

Great pad!

For your money this is the best way to go ultralight in comfort. It packs down next to nothing, is very comfortable, and has a high quality fill valve. On the downside, it takes a lot more effort to inflate than say a Thermarest and it will likely puncture more easily. But for the dollar per gram and comfort, you can't beat it.

The pad tends to slide on my slick tent bottom. It takes a good while to inflate but has a great cushion of air when you are done. Small, light, and affordable what else can I say.

Mostly comfortable

Not sure about the durability but comfortable enough. You can blow it up in about 5 minutes without too much dizziness. Packs down small.

I had been using a trail lite self inflating pad when I purchased this to have a little more cushion since I am a big guy. The first time I used it I was with my two daughters. They think it is great I spent theh night on the trail-lite. I will have to order another one for me.

Pros: Build quality, Ease of use, Great value

Durable product
June 03, 2012

This is the perfect sleeping pad for anywhere. The fabric proves to be durable as I have slept in a tent, on rocks, grass, dirt and elements of weather! While you have to be patient or involve a team member to inflate (especially at higher altitudes), it is worth the wait. Deflating is easy, and the zigzag fold makes rolling it up to fit back in the bag easy as well. Small, light-weight.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value

Excellent quality and value

I own three of these sleeping pads for the family and have taken them camping many times. Even after using them on rocky terrain the pads have proven their durability. While prices fluctuate these pads seem to be generally better value than their competitors. I am 5'11 and the regular size fits me just fine.

Nice Pad
March 29, 2013

Bought this pad for an upcoming DIY Elk hunt. I liked the fact that it was super easy to inflate. It packed down to about the size of a big coffee cup. My 2 year old son did the honors of testing the durability. He jumped, ran, bounced and played on it for about an hour with no harm inflicted to pad or child!!! Great product!!!

Pros: Build quality, Ease of use
