16.8 oz / 476 g - With comfort features like a built in pillow and side rails, the Inertia XL was created with comfort in mind so you can feel pampered while camping and yet still come in at an ultralight weight. Like its nimble little brother the Inertia X Frame, this Inertia XL is the lightest, most compact and technically advanced camping pad in its category of oversized camping pads. The Inertia XL offers increased support, body mapping, coverage area, tossing room, and even an integrated head cradle pillow. The Inertia XL accommodates more body shapes and sizes with its more neutral body map design. The Inertia XL offers the same technologies as the Inertia X Frame, such as loft pocket technology, customizable pressurized comfort and support, ultralight and compact, and low volume for inflation. This is the ultimate pad for those looking for a little more comfort and support but still want the smallest, lightest thing out there.

This is a great sleeping pad, I love how it supports and cushions in all the right places - even when I sleep on my side - and still folds up quickly and easily into a package smaller than a loaf of bread. It's also quick and simple to inflate, the included hand pump lets you adjust the firmness to your liking (I prefer a firmer pad). Unlike a flat pad, the textured fabric and ridges keep my bag from sliding off, and the ability to put it inside my bag is a nice feature in colder weather. The "loft pockets" don't seem to contribute much, but also keep my bag from sliding around.
I'll still use my X Frame as my primary backpacking pad; however, I plan to use the Inertia XL on the John Muir Trail next year, with the X Frame as back up.
I can't say enough good things about this, or any other, Klymit sleeping pad and I recommend them to all my fellow backpackers. Buy one, you won't be disappointed, you'll wonder why you didn't sooner.
Cons: While this is a perfectly good pad, it just doesn't really seem to know what niche it wants to fill. Is it built to be ultralight or is it for comfort? Although Klymit advertises a packed weight of 17.2 oz, I measured my pad at 19.45 oz. I suspect their measurement is without the hand pump and patch kit. In either case, it actually weighs more than the 16.33 oz advertised for the Static V2, which is a full inch thicker (so I would assume more comfortable, though I haven't tried it) and packs smaller. If weight is your primary concern, you're probably better off with the X Wave or X Lite. Both are significantly lighter, and in my experience, the lower 1/4 of this pad doesn't significantly contribute to its comfort anyway.
Aside from the question of the target market for this pad, I do have a few minor quibbles with the design. First, the "integrated pillow" is purely for looks and/or marketing. It's not nearly substantial enough to provide any meaningful cushion or cradling. Second, the cutouts make packing the pad away a bit difficult, though not terribly so. They seem to get hung up on each other as you're rolling up the pad, and they make it tough to purge the last bit of air. Finally, the valve and pump system seeks a bit clumsy. There's one valve to inflate the pad by mouth and a separate connector to attach the hand pump. The pump itself is just a simple rubber bulb with a hole in the end that you cover with your thumb as you squeeze. Again, not terribly difficult to use- just slightly awkward in the hand. A simple one-way valve on the pump would make it easier to use and probably with minimal weight penalty.
Update: Have done several nights on this air pad now, with no problems. comfortable as a 1" air mattress can be and has support in all the right places. I would recommend a pack pillow as the head an neck support is not great, but otherwise, built for what it's for.
The pad itself is very lightweight and compact. When inflated, it's about an inch and a half think, and provides decent comfort. However, Klymit designed this for back sleepers, and possibly side sleepers. On your back, it is pretty comfortable, but on your side there are pressure points. The built-in pillow cradles your head, but you have to be perfectly aligned otherwise it feels like it's pulling your head off your shoulders. I put this on top of a short Thermarest Trail Scout pad with a Cocoon brand pillow/stuff sack, and found it good enough for 3 season use. Thrown in a bivy sack with a lightweight sleeping bag, this is a great lightweight sleep system option.
If you sleep on your stomach, this pad is not for you. The loft pockets are perfectly placed in a way that your body wants to fall through them, or get caught up in them. You may want to consider a standard rectangular pad.
Overall, this pad is relatively comfortable for the warmer months. In the winter, you will want a pad with more insulation and padding to keep you warm.
Best uses- tall back and side sleepers, during warm months.
Avoid if- you sleep on your stomach, or camp a lot in colder months. Or at least combine with another pad for added insulation and/or padding.
Overall opinion- 4 stars. It has its niche for sure, and if you find yourself in that niche it is a great buy. The pad doesn't slide around too much in your sleep, yet will pivot with your lower half when you curl up. However I'm docking 1 star for the integrated pillow and the pressure points when sleeping on your side.
