I've been using a Thermorest self-inflating pad happily for many years. When I saw one of these type mats, I was impressed with the weight and space reduction, so I decided to try one. I used it six nights on a wilderness canoeing trip and was very pleased. Just as comfortable as the Thermorest. It ... Read More
Reviewed by Hikerbarb from california on Friday, November 14, 2014I bought this pad last summer for a 10 day stretch on the John Muir Trail. I had always used a thermarest but wanted to try something lighter and that would compress smaller. First night out it went flat, so obviously a hole. Spent some time on the trail trying to find the appropriate stream that I could inflate the pad and submerge it to find the hole. Found hole, patched it with the kit and did not have anymore problems. Next trip, I am extremely careful with the pad but never worried like this about the thermarest, even taking it out and laying on the ground to read. This pad is very comfortable but takes time to inflate and deflate and difficult to fit in the small bag it came it. All said, I like it will continue using it.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Nom De Plum from Denver, PA on Tuesday, November 4, 2014This was very comfortable to sleep on. I was used to using a thinner thermarest pad, but this is a definate step up. Recently took this pad backpacking on the Appalachian Trail and I really liked how small this packed. My only issues we that this is just a tad heavy (probably due to the brass valve) and takes some effort to inflate and deflate. This is not self inflating so you need to have some lung power to inflate and to deflate I opened the value in the morning and let the air escape from underneath me, but still have some minor issues fitting the pad into the included stuff sack (although it still packed very small).

Only issue I have is that it is hard to deflate 100%, especially if you're on rocky ground and can't push out the air from one channel to the next on a smooth surface. Otherwise, it's a steal at this price.
Reviewed by outdoor14 from California on Saturday, October 25, 2014I find the packed size of the pad noting short of amazing: a 9" cylinder with 4" diameter.
Yes, it does take some effort to inflate, and the "regular" inflated size is, well, barely
sufficient, but that's what it is: I'd take it and day over sleeping on the ground. One quibble
is that the inventory sticker left by Sierra leaves a sticky mark on the package which is
difficult to remove: helpful Sierra people: that's what plastic bags are for, use them!
Verified Buyer Reviewed by canoeonhead from West Virginia on Monday, September 22, 2014I've been using a Thermorest self-inflating pad happily for many years. When I saw one of these type mats, I was impressed with the weight and space reduction, so I decided to try one. I used it six nights on a wilderness canoeing trip and was very pleased. Just as comfortable as the Thermorest. It does take more effort to inflate (~18 breaths for me) and it takes longer to deflate it, but the trade-off is well worth the space and weight savings to me. When I got back, I ordered a second one for my wife to replace her Thermorest. Both went on a second wilderness canoeing trip and did not disappoint. No leaks. I did use the repair silicon that came with them to patch a blow-up pillow successfully. The trade-off is even more appealing for backpacking, where weight and space are even more dear.
