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.

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.

Comes with straps and a bag - that made us happy. Inflated nicely. We did add a few puff of air. Haven't camped with it yet, but tried it on the hardwood floor and it felt great. Good size. For the money it's a good buy

I've done alot of backpacking over the years - tried many sleeping pads and have found this one to be one of the better ones. It may not be as light as the Thermarest Prolite but here is what I love about it:
- quick self-inflating. You can hear the hear rushing in. And please note that you always, always have to add a few breaths to top up a self-inflating pad. Their is no such thing as a self-inflating pad that'll inflate all the way.
- sticky bottom so that it stays under your sleeping bag
- high quality brass valve - not plastic
- as comfortable as any 1 1/2" Thermarest pad
- and most important - excellent, excellent price for what you get!!
Yes, it's heavier and bulkier then the Prolite but it's 60% cheaper - I can live with that!

This gets high stars for the deal I got. However, I would invest in something else if I were an avid camper. It doesn't really inflate which I would not mind self-inflating. However, it is just pretty thin. I am 5'5" 116lbs. I can't see a wider person staying on this. It doesn't pack down super small. I should have just purchased a hefty thermarest but did not want to spend the $, so this is good for occasional camping.
