Reviewed by Ray of Soil from maryland on Saturday, August 17, 2013This is a high quality product with about 1/3 inch closed cell foam to give insulation and protection (and it seem none-slip, as well). The 1 inch off egg crate shaped soft open cell foam is really comfy. So its a bit bulky--but no real extra weight.
Reviewed by plasticmom from pa on Tuesday, July 23, 2013thicker than I thought it would be, too big to attach to my hiking backpack. Otherwise, would be great for camping if you don't have to carry it in.
Reviewed by jmlimberty from Utah on Friday, July 19, 2013I use this for occasional car camping but mostly for backpacking. It gets the job done - long and wide enough for me, lightweight - so for the price especially, I'm content.
Reviewed by Barefoot grandma from Northwest Indiana on Tuesday, July 16, 2013This is identical to a pad I bought several years ago. It is a good pad for car-camping, softer than a ridge-rest but not as bulky as some other pads. Well-made, my other one has lasted for years but became a little compromised when a mouse got into my basement cupboard and chewed on the foam.
Reviewed by MET from Chicago, IL on Monday, June 24, 2013I'm not much of a camper, so I wanted something good, but reasonably priced for an upcoming trip. Since we were car camping, size wasn't a factor - that said, I wouldn't want to strap this to a backpack and hike with it - too big and bulky.
The mat is comfortable, but as a side sleeper I would wake with discomfort on my side. I think that's to be expected with any non-inflatable pad (and my bony hips). The top is open foam cell, so you wouldn't want to use this in wet weather without appropriate cover.
Overall, it's a solid pad that will be put to good use in the future.
Reviewed by Chris from Washington on Wednesday, May 22, 2013This is a nice comfy pad, but it is made of open cell foam with no coating on the outside, so it will absorb moisture. For this reason it would not make a good hiking pad. It is very light and soft and otherwise makes a good sleeping pad.
Reviewed by 1Janne from Rhode Island on Wednesday, April 24, 2013Wouldn't take it backpacking (I'm 4'11") because it would be too bulky for me, but for someone taller, it could be done. This will be used for car camping on top of a cot - for that it's perfect.
Reviewed by displaced californian from Washignton on Wednesday, March 6, 2013Great for tent or car camping, or for eliminating the chill on an air mattress. This is my second pad since i liked the first one so well.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by displaced californian from Allyn, WA on Wednesday, December 12, 2012Ideal for tent or car camping, but I use it every day on top of my air bed for warmth and support.
