I'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.

This 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.

The dense foam on the bottom is so thin that it is useless. The egg crate foam is so soft that it compresses to easily and is also useless. I will be returning both of these as my wife likes hers even less than I did mine.
Cons: Hard to Pack, Packs Too Large, VERY UNCOMFORTABLE
