A must-have camping gear!

Verified Buyer Reviewed by dave from SF Bay Area, CA on Wednesday, August 5, 2009
My family(2 adults and 2 kids) were using air mattresses which were bulky and bouncy. I bought 4 of these from Sierra Trading Post after reading all the reviews here. I also compared reviews with other brands.

We just got back from a 3-day camping, well-rested. The kids got to 'test' the pads very thoroughly - they were jumping on them like they did on their mattresses at home.

These pads exceeded my expectations. I strongly recommend them. No more air mattresses!

One note: When brand-new, the pads took a while to inflate(by just leaving the valve open). I helped a bit by blowing a few huffs into the valve, closed the valve and left the pads inflated for a few days. After that, deflating and inflating took just a few minutes. Properly deflated, the pads fit nicely into the bags.
