I got tired of not sleeping well because of light weight poor performing pads. I'm willing to put up with a little bulk for good sleep. Make sure to add a few good breaths after its done self inflating.

I had no trouble inflating it, just a few puffs in the end.
It seems comfortable though I haven't slept a night on it yet.
I had no trouble deflating it and getting it back into the bag.
It seems perfect for what I'll be using it for.

This is a great pad. Inflated well. Relatively comfortable. The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is the pad is kind of narrow. Now, that's great if you are hiking and having to carry it....but for us city campers, I want a little wider body. Plus points in the rubber bottom. It didn't slip around at all.

It's bulkier/heavier than I'd recommend for ultra-lite backpacking, but if weight and size aren't considerations, this seems to be a very comfortable sleeping pad. It's large enough that my dog (70lbs) and I would both be able to fit on it to feel the comforts of an insulated, padded nights sleep (if you don't mind cozying up to your dog). Nevermind that I bought it for my husband - I think I might keep it for myself.
