    I have used lots of different pads over the years but for comfort and price this is the best. Terrific for car camping where weight is not an issue!

    These pads are awesome. Great quality, great size. and quick expansion compared to other pads we own. We will be buying more of these to we are not all fighting over the 2 that we originally purchased.

    We haven't actually used them camping yet, but inflated them and tried them out on the living room floor. They are remarkably comfortable and seem to be of good quality. I'm happy with them, just couldn't justify a five star rating since I haven't used them on the road yet. We plan to use them for car camping.

    A really great, tough pad. Best for car camping as it is fairly heavy for backpacking

    I have multiple sleeping pads ranging from expensive Thermarests to much larger ones for car camping. I was looking for a pad that could be used on a cot during longer car camping trips. The size was a bigger factor in choosing a pad since this went on a cot. Plus I didn't want to pay a ton for it. This pad fits perfectly. Is very well constructed. I really like that the underside of the pad has little rubber dots on it, which prevents the pad from sliding around while sleeping. This always happened with my Thermarest pads, on the ground or on a cot. Thickness is great. I tested this on the ground and didn't feel the ground on my hips or shoulders at all, letting me sleep on my side. You can't beat the price on's a fraction of the price compared to what I purchased at REI in the past. In terms of self-inflating works as good as most, which means they don't fully self inflate, especially if stored rolled up at home. They inflate 1/2 - 2/3 of the way. Regardless of what pad you buy, expect to blow air into it. Even the best "self inflating" pads might self inflate 3/4 of the way, but if stored rolled up then a year later they don't self inflate. Since this was shipped rolled up, it only self inflated about half way in 15 minutes. Thus, I wouldn't really consider "self inflating" a factor when buying a pad. I see it more as a marketing gimmick. As others mentioned, it's heavy. Not so much because of the construction or materials, but the size. It's quite a bit wider and longer than your avg backpacking pad. So I wouldn't plan to use this on long hikes where weight might become a factor. Better for short hikes and more so for car camping. Insulation rating is good as well, for those that care.

    If there was any "con" or feedback I would give the designers of this product. I would opt for heavier nylon rollup straps. Very minor feedback, as what they provided works fine. Lastly, the valve design seems little odd. Very robust in that it's metal vs plastic, but I wasn't 100% sure how to optimize getting air into it. I only used this once so far, so I assume I'll figure it out.

    I waited to write this review until I field-tested the product for several weeks. This is only for car camping-- too big, bulky and heavy otherwise. But it worked great for a 200 lb. person on all surfaces- gravel, etc. It's big enough and I never felt the ground. Yet it is also hard to roll up and so I simply folded it over during the trip and rolled it up for storage afterwards. But it definitely works and felt much better than my old thin backpack pad.
