Great Comfortable Sleeping Pad
This pad has been through allot with me. I was very hesitant when buying an inflating pad, but needed it for a winter trip. I have had many inflating pads in the past, and everyone of them has eventually broken. They generate holes quickly, and deflate many time during the night. This pad has not let me down yet. I bought it because it was somewhat of a light pad.
It does not inflate very well by itself, so you may need to blow into it for a good firm inflated pad. Now this is troublesome after a long days hike, but once you get it inflated, you will be laughing at your friends who are tossing and turning all night, trying to get comfortable on their foam mats.
Some people complain about rolling it up to fit into its stuff bag. I have never had a problem getting it small and compact just as it came brand new. It does take about one to two minutes to roll it up depending on your method or desired compression.
This pad also has non-slip fabrics on the surface of it to help prevent you from sliding off. This does not stop you from sliding totally, but helps allot. It comes with two nylon bands that wrap around the mat when rolled up to keep it from unraveling. this also makes it easier to put in its stuff sack. The stuff sack is very nice because it not only makes it easier for you to carry around, but protects your pad if you attach it to the outside of your pack. This way protruding branches and scraps against rocks will not damage your pad as easily.
