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.
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.
Versatile and compact
No accompanying sack
This is a great accessory sleeping pad for both camping, military operations or even when watching a game (with the chair accessory).
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.
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!!
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.
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.
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.

I like this pad. It's small and lightweight but I do have another one I use more often. Of course the other one is more expensive.Published 23 months ago by Christian

I've used this camping to around 0degF and was warm and toasty. No leaching of body heat through the ground. Read morePublished on December 16, 2013 by christopher zubris

Seems to have developed micro holes, even though I only used it a few times in a tent in the back yard. What a POS! I'm not down on Therm-a-Rest though. Read morePublished on November 29, 2013 by Online Marketer
I just returned from a two day camping trip. The Therm-a-Rest Mattress was super. Weather was 39 degrees no problems.Published on October 9, 2013 by Rammstein77
This was a great investment. It's not perfect...the self-inflation is a goofy feature. I wonder if any pads have the feature working well. Sleep much better now though.Published on January 23, 2013 by rubbeh
My three stars isn't for the product as much as it is for the company. I ordered the Pomegranate (last years model) to replace the one I gave to a friend. Read morePublished on January 21, 2013 by Caleb T Leslie
