Lightweight a Trade-Off for Durability

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Bladerunner II from Pacific NW on Friday, April 30, 2010
The price and light weight of item, should appeal to ground campers. It compacts for packing into a small easily carried bundle. I can't recommend the pad for sleeping comfort, but it does add insulation from the cold ground. The anti-slip surface is marginally effective. The product's main drawback is suceptibility to scrapes and abrasion. I predict this material will compress,chafe and eventually tear.
