REGARDING VALVE PLACEMENT

The valve was originally tested at an angle but it caused discomfort at the shoulder when our testers rolled over on it, hence the valve placement at the head. By placing the valve at the head we were also able to better integrate the open cell insert into the closed cell top and bottom of the Hyper Lite pads that the tool was originally designed for. It was also thought that users normally place some sort of pillow under their head.

pay attention...
to the dimensions it folds down to...unreal, takes up no space, therefore slips in your pack versus the outside. Does all it needs to when you are going light, insulates and provides cushioning for the hip and shoulder area. Valve thing makes since, I have no problem with it. Hard core light at 10oz by 9".
