Like a bed you bring to the field.

I never carry any kind of sleeping pad, because they are large and bulky, and usually don't offer any comfort. Their benefit is in keeping you warm by keeping you off the ground. Warmth is not a huge problem in Central Florida. I usually use a hammock, because they're tiny, packable, and comfortable, albeit awkward and difficult to set up after a long day. I bought this in anticipation of multi-day Kayak trips in the Indian River. I haven't used it in the field yet, but it it VERY comfortable. Simple to set up, just unroll, open the valve, and wait a few minutes. Then tighten the valve and enjoy. I laid on my side on a tile floor and I couldn't feel any of the hard surface just an inch below me. I've owned beds that were less comfortable, and I look forward to using it after a long day on the river. I Cannot attest to durability, since I haven't used it afield, but it's easier to put away than my hammock, although time consuming.
