"just as comfy as my own bed"

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Rockdaddy from Roanoke, Virginia on Friday, August 24, 2012
My daughter's first week of college started with an orientation camping trip (tent camping, 4 nights). My camping pads had gotten lost in a move so I needed to order a new one for her trip. I asked her how it worked out and she said, "Good! It was honestly just as comfy as my own bed". So, high marks on comfort. That said, the only model available was the XL...it was a bit large for backpacking but the compression straps make it pretty solid. We stowed it vertically on the side of the pack. Stowing horizontally at the top or bottom of the pack was too clumsy. Overall, a real "comfy" pad, excellent for car camping or overnights on the floor. You might consider something more minimalist if you're going for a multi day packbacking trip. I will be using it for overnights at hunt camp this autumn. I purchased this model based on best price after an internet search and my perceived quality of the Primus brand name.
