Leaky Pad

Reviewed by ministercreek from Back in Madison Wisconsin on Wednesday, April 22, 2009
I initially purchased this self-inflater for my camping year around. You see I live in my tent.

Some of the things I do like about this particular mat is the size. It's perfect and very comfortable when it has/holds air. However I have discovered, all to my great horror, it leaks continually. This is the second such mat. The first one was not holding air either I returned it to STP for a replacement. The replacement is no better than the first-it leaks too. I truly suspect the valves are the culprit here.

I will be returning this one too once I get my Therm-A-Rest. Better to spend money on something that holds air than leaks all the time. I would stay away from this ALPS Mountaineering Pine Ridge Mat.
