INTRO

Not knowing my objectives when I deployed to Haiti, I purchased this mat for both sleeping outdoors or comverting it into a camping chair. The construction is lightweight and fits easily into my Tactical Backpack. The negative is that I had to purchase a sac for it separately.

USE

This pad is comfortable, as a stand alone pad or useful when trying to sleep on a military mattress. Open the seal, and the pad inflates in a matter of seconds. Taking this pad down takes about 3-5 minutes to roll, empty the air and then fold again. The outer covering is durable.

PRO

Light
Versatile and compact

CON

No accompanying sack

OVERALL

This is a great accessory sleeping pad for both camping, military operations or even when watching a game (with the chair accessory).

I will be field testing this mattress in a week and will update my review thereafter. Initial impressions are that it is a decently lightweight and small mattress when rolled up. Very nice for lightweight and space saving backpackers like myself. After rolling it out it is plenty long enough(the reg size) and not too wide but will do the job just fine. It won't inflate completely by itself so I blew it up almost to its max and found it to be VERY comfortable and supportive. I am quite impressed with this mattress, it seems like it will be very comfortable.

Only con I can think of is the price and that it doesn't come with the stuff sack. Other than that, it gets a 5/5 for doing EXACTLY what it is meant to do, and doing it very well. You get what you pay for and this lightweight comfortable and compact mattress isn't lacking.

UPDATE:
After 3 day backpacking trip in November in W.V. this sleeping pad worked perfectly. No complaints. Insulated from the icy ground well. Very comfortable. Very light. Very pleased!!

Excellent mattress for backpacking. I have always slept on the ground because I just didn't think a matt like this was worth the money or valuable space it would take up in my pack, boy was I wrong. I have never slept through the night while camping untill now. You wouldn't believe the difference that a 1 1/2 inch foam matt can make. It earns the space it takes up in my pack. I do think it was worth the $100.00 I spent on it, but I think that the storage bag should come with it. I had to pay an extra $20.00 to get it.

These things are expensive but worth it. It seems that my cheap, Army knock-off binds the foam inside to the exterior with a cheaper glue. In the spots where it lets go, the mattress inflates with big bubbles here and there. So much for a flat sleeping surface.

Yeah, I blow into the nozzle to inflate. I never have the time it takes for the memory foam to inflate and I don't want a bed that mushy.

Warm, though, and comfy? You bet! When I get a moment to throw one of these on the floor for a mid-day nap, I swear it's the best sleep I get.

After about three years of storage and use, call it five months total in the field with many of those days well below freezing, my first just stopped even trying to inflate. I had to blow the whole way. No big deal. It eventually blew away itself when a wicked wind blew over our hilltop position.

Good enough to pay for twice :)

BTW, this is bright red only on one side. The other is much more subdued so we military types can roll that side out without looking all festive.

I ordered this pad for backpacking. I wanted something that was light weight, compactable and had an insulating quality to it and that is exactly what I got.
Like I said, it's light and has a small form factor. Setup is a breeze as well and getting it ready to travel. The added insulation (R-value) is nice as well and has kept be warm while camping on the ground.

Very durable too.

I ordered the regular size and it fits me perfectly. I'm about 5'5, 130lbs and there is plenty of coverage. It would easily work for someone taller and bigger than I.

I will order another for my wife when she is ready to hit some trails with me, until then, I will enjoy it on my solo adventures.

By the way, GREAT price on this pad! Also highly reviewed on backpacker sites as well. Good stuff.

UPDATE: Just an Update: I really do enjoy this pad. It's not the lightest out there but it really works well. I recently used it for an overnight in the Pisgah National Forest and I slept great even on the uneven ground. It's easy to set up and to put away. It also has a decent R-value to assist with warmth.

I can't say enough positive things about these. We researched mattress pads for months and ended up spending the extra for the good quality pads. We camp on our motorcycle and these were easy to unroll and inflate at the end of a long ride and easy to deflate and roll up to pack back on the bike. Our concern was the best comfort and having the lightest weight and amount of space these take up. I HIGHLY recommmend!!!!!

The first time you unpack this, it will not self-inflate; you'll need to put your lungs to use and inflate it yourself. The instructions explain that you need to do this the first time and then store the pad in the inflated condition (under a bed or behind a couch) to help the pad hold its inflated shape. If you do this, you can deflate the pad when packing it before an outing, and it will (pretty much) inflate on its own when you take it out of it's stuff sack to use it.

The pad won't make you think you're sleeping on an expensive air mattress, but for a portable backpacking pad, it's fairly comfortable compared to the basic foam pad I used before this.

Be advised this pad currently does not include a stuff sack. According to a salesman I spoke to at a store in Seattle, Therm-a-Rest will start including a stuff sack next year. But at the time of this review, you'll need to buy one separately, which will add around $15 to the cost if you go with the one Therm-a-Rest offers.

Update 7-9-12: I've used this pad quite a bit more since writing this review, and I think it needs to be said that the self-inflating claim is a stretch at best and bogus at worst. After weeks and even months of being stored fully inflated under my bed, after I've deflated and packed the Therm-a-Rest for an outing, it does not self-inflate when I've gone to use it the next day out in the field. You pretty much have to do all of the inflating with your lungs. I'm not going to reduce my five-star rating because the product does perform well otherwise, and the other positive points I made above still stand. Just be advised that you'll need to supply the lung power to inflate this pad when you use it, regardless of how you store it at home. An added observation: The Therm-a-Rest packs quite a bit smaller than the folding or rolled-up foam pads I've seen other climbers use.
