Good pad for a good price

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Midwest in the mountains from Idaho on Tuesday, September 30, 2014
This is the second one of these pads that I have purchased. I bought the first one for my teenage son to use on a backpacking trip. I wasn't sure when I bought the first one how it would be since it was significantly cheaper than others like Thermarest. I was pleased however, so I bought another one. My son said it was comfortable to sleep on, and he is about 5'9 and 110 lbs. My daughter also used it on a family camping trip and slept fine on it. It's nice to have something that packs down smaller so it can be used for backpacking and takes up minimal space for car camping. It takes about 2-3 minutes to inflate and then I always give it a few breaths to fill it out completely before closing the valve. I also store these pads unrolled, as suggested -- we keep them under a bed so they are out of the way. I don't know how it performs as an insulator against the cold, and I don't know how durable it is since we've only owned them for a few months, so I'm giving it four stars. Otherwise, we are happy with this sleeping pad and hope that they will hold up well!
