    Great pad for the price. Speaking as an occasional user. I have the nice thick version. These are for my kids.

    Traction "dots" work well. Quite durable. Compression straps are nice to have included. 1 star off because the stitching on the bag is pretty flimsy. I have had a seam come undone on one... They likely won't stand the test of time.

    This was bought as a gift for my son. We let it self inflate when we first got it and it worked great. The padding was nice and was long enough for him at 6ft. Several months went by before he took it camping and the first night he used it the outside sleeve separated from the inside membrane. It now has a big bubble in the middle of the pad and is no longer comfortable for sleeping. We can't return it because it has been over 90 days.

    I bought a pair of these pads for backpacking. One of them failed on the first use (it developed a large air bubble). I replaced it thinking I simply got a bad one. The replacement failed on day 3 of a backpacking trip. Do NOT waste your money on something that won't last more than a few nights.

    The real test is this coming weekend but it's held air and is comfortable in home tests. I love that it's light and rolls up snugly inside it's pack. It's as advertised.

    I don't have much to compare this to except a Hyalite, but I felt like it was a decent self inflating mat. I got several mats for members of my family to use and they all said they were comfortable, especially the youngest two.
    The valve on the end with a metal stem was a nice touch and the whole mat looks to be well made. Rolling it up for transport was simple and they fit easily in the provided storage bags.

    The outer lining of this sleeping pad separated from the rest of the material on the first use on our camping trip to the Canadian Rockies. My 16 year old son had to sleep on it like some sort of ballooned up odd shaped structure. Not very comfortable for him... but he dealt with it for the 6 nights of camping. I will be sending it back. Broken and defective. (An aside, I purchased 2 of these and the weird separation only happened on one of them).

    Upon first use of this sleeping pad, the binding between the fabric layers broke and formed one huge bubble of air at the feet. Don't waste your money.

    I bought 2 of these- 1 for my wife and 1 for me. 1 pad was dead on arrival (air bubble on the surface) but exchanging was easy and free to ship thanks to Sierra Trading Post. I just did a 2 night trip in the Pacific NW using these and they were great. I slept well and couldn't feel any of the rocks or bumps underneath me. They are very light and roll up pretty small. You can definitely get a smaller and lighter pad but nothing nearly as great as these for the price.

    All in all, I think these are a good purchase for a casual hiker/camper/backpacker like me who wants a quality pad at a reasonable cost.

    Luckily I tested this out before i needed it camping. A small air bubble formed between the outer layer and the inside, which grew and grew when laying down on the mat, soon forming a very large air pocket. Now, it is more like a balloon than a mat.

    We really love these pads. We used this product in the Eastern Sierras in California. Altitude 7600 ft and low temp was 47F. These are very comfortable pads, and were replacements for old worn out pads of a similar model.

    Unfortunately, the second pad we purchased for this trip had what appears to be an internal separation and never fully inflated in the field. It developed a bubble that eventually moved down the length of the pad. Even with the oddly mobile bubble, we were able to use the pad and it held air just fine.
