• This pad is durable. It has a very durable nylon on the top and a thicker build on the bottom that has rubber grips to keep it from sliding. I think it would be more difficult than most pads to poke a hole in it. If it were to go flat, it does have a padded feel to it still and it does come with a patch kit. Happy camping!

  • The mattress is tough - not so easy to poke a hole. If you do - repair is possible and not difficult. The patch kit included is sufficient.|If it has a hole it will deflate the same as if the valve is open. But there is still some insulating value since the open cell pad is inside. So it is better then an old fashioned air mattress.
