This sleeping pad is very comfortable, easy to pack, lightweight, and cannot be popped. It is very easy to use, just unroll it; no having to worry about blowing it up, blowing the pillow up, etc. I definately prefer this pad to the Therm-A-Rest. It's nice to able able to set your hot water or hot meal on it and eat during a storm without having to worry about popping it.

The only negative thing about the pad is that I get a little bit of thermal transfer through it at main pressure points. Overall a great product.

I use the Highmountain 72 in combination with a 3/4 Ultralight. The Highmountain has been nice, providing good insulation when sleeping on snow and the Ultralight gives me extra comfort. Plus if the thermarest gets a hole and can't be repaired I at least always have my Highmountain pad (though I don't think I would want to soley sleep on a Highmountan 72, if I had a choice). Over all I've been pleased with it, especially when used in conjuction with my Ultralight. (Incidently, I'm 6'3" and the 72 is just barley big enough for me and my Long sleeping bag).

Expensive, bulky and gets wet too easily.

Can't be used directly on snow because it gets wet and stays wet in cold conditions.

Extremely bulky.
