A good mat

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Emily from Colorado on Tuesday, June 23, 2015
I got this sleeping pad primarily for car camping. The pad basically stays in my truck on my "bed," which is perfect for following the manufacturer's suggestion of storing it with the pad flat and the air valve open. I had a light, tube-style Hyalite pad in my truck for a while, which developed a minute hole in an awkward place after a few months. This purchase was to replace that pad.

I've never owned a foam pad before. I've used this one for about a week now. It's comfortable to sleep on, even when I forget to close the air valve! The reason I didn't give it the last star is because it's awkward for me to roll it up for transporting. I gave up and only did a half-[...]ed job for a recent tent trip, then strapped it to my pack. You have to be diligent and strong to get it into the shape necessary for the carrying sack (unless there's some trick I don't know about...). I didn't have the patience for that last weekend.

All in all, I'm really happy I got this. Hopefully I can try again and succeed in patching my old, tubular sleeping pad, and this one can stay in my truck.
