This is the first pad I've found that doesn't have that problem. I slept better on this than on other pads that cost a lot more, because it is actually wide enough to fit me comfortably, and I don't slip off of it in the middle of the night. Indeed, the width is palatial - it feels almost like you are sleeping in a regular bed in terms of the width.
As for comfort, I will give it two different ratings. If you lay flat on your back and your weight is spread over the surface area of the pad broadly, I found it quite comfortable, even plush. If you sleep on your side, it is still decent, but really not nearly as good. When you press all your weight down into a small part of the pad it still works, but it gets quite firm. The pad is just not that thick and so it just doesn't cushion you as well if you are side sleeper. I am normally a side sleeper, but I soon realized I should just lay flat on my back, because I found it was making my shoulder uncomfortable. If you aren't as big as me, you might not have that issue, but if you care more about sleeping on your side than having a wide pad, there are better choices out there.
It isn't insulated, but I found I could use it down into the 30s with a decent bag and one of those reflector/emergency blanket things under it.
It seems well-made and is unlikely to fail, assuming you are careful with it.
Overall, I am pretty satisfied with this pad. It is a bit heavy to backpack with, but it has won a place in my pack despite its weight. At least for me, it is significantly more comfortable to sleep on than the narrower pads I had been using. It isn't perfect, but I think it is a good value for the money.
So I've had this thing for over a year now, and have some observations. First, this thing remains very comfortable. Several of the other adults in our troop have bought them after seeing mine. I sleep so well on this thing, it's actually hard to wake up sometimes. Second, it packs well. It gets much smaller than the traditional self-inflating pads. I can pack this down enough to fit it in my pack's sleep compartment with my sleeping bag (Rovor Tabei) and pillow (Trekology Dreamer). My whole sleep system weighs less than 4 pounds. And I'm very comfortable. I have been in a constant process of improving my gear list over the last two years, and this pad was a huge value add for me. At $70 it comes in on the affordable side of light/ultralight sleeping pads. I bought a regular Static V for my son, and he took it to Philmont this summer ... no issues at all. The pads have held up great and are very comfortable. It's also notable that the Static V Luxe, being the heavier pad in the line, still weighs only slightly over a pound and a half (26 oz).
I camp with the Boy Scouts pretty much every month and do at least one long term camp with the troop a year. I used to haul a heavy, rolled up, self inflating sleeping pad with me, because I found that there was no comfort to be found with a pad less than 3 inches thick. The issue? Self inflating pads that thick, while very good (I have an Alps Comfort Series XXL ... which is crazy comfortable, but 8.5 lbs), are extremely heavy. I bought the V Luxe (which isn't the lightest Klymit inflatable) on a whim, really. I wanted something thick, but lighter with a smaller form factor when packed. I have been really happy with this pad.
I use it pretty much every month. The only time I don't use it is when I know it's going to drop below about 35 degrees, and I take my big, thick, self inflating pad. Otherwise, I find this pad completely comfortable. It doesn't make any weird noises (like other inflatables I've seen). It really does inflate in about 20 breaths.
My one recommendation (not a complaint, just a suggestion) is to update the design of the stuff sack. it's too big. Even some sort of small compression sack would be better. There's just too much extra fabric hanging off when packed, and the pad roll gets loose. I've taken to wrapping a strip of Velcro around the pad and bag when packed to keep it all small and functional.
Otherwise, absolutely no complaints. Great pad.
* Not as compact as I'd hoped, but I'll put that issue on myself. I simply don't want to deal with the narrow ultralight pads which is what led me to this one. All packed up, it's slightly larger than my jetboil.
* I initially didn't like the way the valves protrude from the pad. They stick out quite a bit in both corners. Think bicycle tire stem as opposed to the plug type seals used on most air mattresses. In practice, I didn't really notice when using the pad, but it's something that definitely stood out as odd upon first look.
* Inflates quickly. Had it fully inflated in less than 20 breaths.
* Wide and comfortable. I'm a big guy who sleeps on my stomach. When moving around on it, you'll certainly feel the ground if propping up on elbows, etc. But once I got stretched out, I was very happy with the feel of the pad.
After the quick assessment, I sat it aside with the intention of giving it a test run that night. By the time I went to bed, I noticed the pad had deflated somewhat. Not certain whether or not I'd accidentally not sealed a valve, I reinflated, double checked the valves, and settled in for the night. Within about 3 hours, I was effectively sleeping on the floor as most of the air had leaked out.
Overall, I think I'd be pretty happy with it. It's not super compact, but it's also not super large, and it's much wider than most anything else you can find out there from the top backpacking manufacturers. You an really spread out on this thing. But it really only has one job to do, and that's to hold air. The one sent to me didn't do that.
I've ordered a replacement and will update if it fares any better.

If this is a representative experience then you've got a 50/50 chance of either a great working mattress or a leaky one

The Good side - Good quality, compact size with no air, Large size when inflated, Comfortable sleeping on the back or on your side
The Bad side - The seating hole around the valve is poor. They should glue this up better at the factory
Background: I backpack camp and have my 3-season base pack weight (excluding food, worn clothing) down to about 16lbs.
I'm six feet tall and tend to turn in my sleep but at 30-inches wide, my arms stay on the mattress rather than falling off the edge. It's a plush 3-inches thick as well, keeping both my back and hip bones from getting sore.
At 750-grams, and rolling down to approximately the size of a Nalgene bottle, this mattress is slightly heavier than some but still backpacking appropriate. I reduce gear weight in areas like clothes, tent, and sleeping bag so that I have some extra carrying capacity for a mattress that I enjoy.
So, here's the thing: Klymit's quality control is more problematic than Therm-a-Rest's.
I got one of these that had a slow leak. My suspicion is it's a valve issue. Klymit uses two valves (for fast deflation) with a "pull to open, push to close, twist to lock closed" action. It's not a simple screw valve so there's more to go wrong and more failure points.
Given that these are the ONLY 30-inch wide mattresses light enough for backpacking, I'm exchanging mine under warranty. My camping is much more enjoyable when I get a good night's sleep. I'm still giving the Klymit Static V Luxe five stars as you can keep exchanging any defective units until you find one that's perfect; you'll certainly get a perfect night's sleep on it.
It is extremely comfortable, perhaps even more comfortable than my actual bed! It is also very lightweight for it's size. It is not insulated, but it weighs pretty much the same as the regular sized insulated version; I use it for backpacking and motorcycle camping so the low weight and small packable size is very important. It rolls up just a little bigger than a 1 liter Nalgene bottle.
It seems quite durable, and I have used it on less than perfectly flat ground and it was still comfortable. I don't have any real complaints, just a couple of nitpicks. It claims 20 to 30 breaths to fill, but I find that is pretty optimistic. I have good lung capacity, and can fill the regular Static V in ten or eleven breaths (rated at 10 to 15). My other nitpick is that the extra length and width of the Luxe makes it almost too long and wide for your standard "sleeping spot" in a tent. I personally didn't need the extra length and width, and I wish Klymit would offer a 3" thick pad with the standard length and width of the regular Static V pad.
Overall it is a fantastic pad, and I highly recommend to 180lb+ side sleepers or people that are exceptionally tall or heavy. Most other people would probably be happy with a standard size Static V.
