Excelent air padReviewed by Arturo from Argentina on Thursday, May 17, 2018It's really light when i compare with my other pad (Thermarest Trail Scout) but it's a little narrow and i've to deinflate to can be on it.
But when it's not overinflated it's really confortable.
Alps FeatherliteVerified Buyer Reviewed by Colorado hiker from Colorado on Monday, July 31, 2017Comfortable if not overinflated. The pad is very slippery, we purchased two of them and used them this past weekend. We plan to try adding straps to our sleeping bags or putting the pad in the bags to offset the slipperiness.
Sleep in!Verified Buyer Reviewed by Kate from Bozeman on Wednesday, July 12, 2017Love it! Getting it pumped up is a little bit tiring, especially after hiking all day, but the effort is absolutely worth it. I am extremely comfortable and sleep longer than I do with other sleeping pads.
Perfect PadVerified Buyer Reviewed by Justknow from Kentucky on Tuesday, May 30, 2017Haven't used it camping yet but will this weekend. I love that it has a built in pump and it folds up small. Very comfortable when I tried it on the floor.
So far so goodVerified Buyer Reviewed by Randy from Texas on Sunday, May 14, 2017Good size and great cushion. I'm 6'4 200lbs and it feels great. It can be loud but nothing a shirt under the mat doesn't fix.
NoisyReviewed by Beginner Hiker from Florida on Monday, November 7, 2016Bought for my girl, very noisy when one moves, returned.
Good pad for the price!Verified Buyer Reviewed by Backpacking Grandma from SoCal on Monday, September 5, 2016Loved the compactness and weight of this pad, and it was longer then I thought it would be, used it last week, and it was super comfy, but the material stayed pretty cold. I think a liner over it would help when it gets chillier. I also was not a fan of the hand pump it comes with, a bit awkward to inflate. I am glad I watched a video on how to inflate before, and it was a bit tiring after a looong hike carrying my pack. I also have an ALP's self inflating pad that is way warmer, inflates perfectly, but is the short and very bulky to pack. This is a great summer pad though for sure, or if you use a liner and maybe an under foam pad, or winter sleeping bag, you will be all set. Only drawback to this pad is the pump. Good material, though, seems like it will last a long time.
Too narrowReviewed by Water guy from Colorado on Monday, August 29, 2016Wanted to like this pad, but I find it to be too narrow for my tastes and also too lofted for how narrow it is. Too easy to slide off this pad. It will be relegated to backup status only. Also the horizontal orientation does not allow a raised edge that I have on my other air mattresses. The raised edge helps you to stay centered in the pad, especially if you toss and turn when you sleep, like I do.
great for backpackingReviewed by mtngurl from PCT on Wednesday, July 20, 2016I've spent a month hiking the PCT using this pad each night. I'm a side sleeper and this pad provides enough cushion to keep my hips and shoulders happy. Hint - only inflate to about 90% full. Takes less than 5 min to inflate with the built in pump. Deflates quick. The material is noisy when you shift your weight on it. if you are rough on your gear this may not be a good sleeping pad for you.
Failed on first use!Reviewed by Darrelllee from Florida on Saturday, January 16, 2016I bought 2 of these in the large size and the first night I used one it slowly lost air and I woke up in the middle of the night with the pad less than half inflated, attempted to pump it back up but 2 hours later it had lost almost all air pressure and was not keeping my body off the ground (tent floor). Cannot find leak so cannot repair it, but I shouldn't have to repair the pad on first use.
It was comfortable when inflated (which is a tedious process) but that didn't last long. Returned both air mats.
