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.

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.

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.
