    Rolled up these are much larger than sleeping pads or small air mattresses. Like most ALPS products, not for backpacking due to the weight and size. They assume and release air through an adjustable hard-plastic valve in one corner that seems a little brittle and I could see it cracking at some point. Thick material, would take a bit of abuse to break a seam or puncture. ALPS sacrifices weight for durability and comfort.

    just needs something to lessen the slippery surface.

    Fabric appears to be a decent quality but, the valve seems pretty flimsy. I returned this for a better quality item.

    Bought these a week before our annual trip to a Star Party in Eastern Oregon. They arrived very promptly and are well worth the money. They self inflate quickly and are very thick. They are very comfortable to sleep on. We used them on top of a double cot. If you use them with nylon sleeping bags be prepared to slip around a bit. I am planning on making cloth covers for them so that won't be an issue again. They do take some effort to deflate and roll back up again because they are so thick so be prepared for that. All in all a great product if you want to sleep comfortably during a car/tent camping expedition!

    I own a few versions of sleeping pads: a cheap Wal-Mart version, a Therma-Rest one for backpacking, and I purchased this one for some car camping in Arkansas this summer. I wasn't sure what to expect because I haven't owned a self-inflating style one before, but reading other reviews helped me order a pair of these for us for our trip. My boyfriend is 6'3" and I'm 5'6", and the XL was a great length for both of us, though the L would probably be fine for me (it wasn't available when I ordered). These pads inflate just as described, and you'll have to add some air of your own in to get them to 100% -- no big deal. We left them inflated as we slept on them for two nights, and had to add a little air for the second night (as expected). I used just a blanket and pillow with mine; boyfriend used a lightweight sleeping bag liner on top of his, and neither of us was too hot. The pad didn't seem to retain a lot of heat, thankfully, as the nights were very warm and humid. While both of us have bad joints and all sorts of things that cause us pain if we sleep on other styles of sleeping pads, we agreed that this one is comfortable enough to actually get some good rest on the ground, even for us side sleepers. Deflating them was easy, too: just roll and push the air out as you go. I love that they game with their own drawstring bags, too. I highly recommend this pad for car camping tent-dwellers.

    i was initially excited to get these 3.5 inch camping pads. however, I hated them. They were uncomfortable to sleep on (but maybe i should have deflated them a little.... they actually seemed uncomfortably firm) but the biggest issue was that they are impossible to get back into their carrying case. This may seem minor, but it took me 10-15 minutes to deflate and put one pad back into its carrier -- all the time accompanied by swearing and complaining. I will return them and get the REI 2.5's that my friend has.

    leaked after two nights of car camping. The valve and the seals are not good quality. Very bulky and not easy to deflate. Returning the product.

    I get a very good sleep on this pad. The only reason it is 4 stars instead of 5 is that I can not roll it up small enough to get in the stuff sack. I do have hand arthritis and I don't weigh alot, and all my efforts can not make this small enough. It is rather large and heavy, so definitely excellent for car camping only, not backpacking.
    I do love the good sleep I get on it, and would only purchase a different pad if it was this comfortable but rolled up smaller.

    This pad is not small for hiking, but is great for car camping.

    My son said it worked great during his scout camp. I'll be testing it next month when I camp with him. We'll see how it handles an adult.
