Why do you want this pad? You want it because it'll keep you warm where other pads will leave you wishing you had a warmer sleeping bag. For comparison, I was sleeping on a Big Agnes air core (R-Value of 1) and woke up one night to the very unpleasant feeling of freezing. The coldest part of my body was my entire back, and it felt like the heat was being pulled out from under me. Fast forward a few weeks, with my new my XTherm (R-value 5.7) on an even colder night, and I slept like a baby! I don't know how it works so well, but it honestly feels like you have a small heater on your back.
The benefit of a higher R-value pad is that you can get away with a smaller sleeping bag. I have a winter bag and a 3-season bag, and with the addition of this pad, I will be selling my winter bag.
I still absolutely love this pad. I've used it many nights since purchased, and it hasn't let me down. The pad is so warm that I've converted over from a 30* sleeping bag to a 50* down blanket... It seriously works that well. Though this is probably seen as more of a cold weather sleeping pad, I've had no issues using it throughout the summer. Since the pad is so much warmer than other options, you'll have to lighten up your sleeping bag in the summer. This is very beneficial to me, because a lighter sleeping bag means more space and less weight in your backpack! Another benefit for me is the ability to side sleep. I don't ever remember sleeping so well on my side with any other pad. Despite the Big Agnes air core being 3.25" tall, it was still not as comfortable for side sleeping.
I have owned and backpacked with quite a few different brands and models of lightweight sleeping pads before, but it was finally time to "go big or go home". I'm a larger framed guy, so comfort is something important to me that not many backpacking sleeping pads can provide. At 6'1" and 235 lbs, a thinner pad just won't cut it. I sleep in various positions, so being able to side sleep and even stomach sleep are very important to me.
I tried the lightest closed-cell foam pads (Z-Lite Sol to start), and it was extremely lightweight but just not enough cushion to get a full night's sleep. I could stay comfortable for maybe 1 hour on a pad like that, and then the sore spots started to show their ugly heads. In trying to keep weight at or below a pound for lightweight backpacking, I used pads such as the Klymit Static V which rolls up very small and is a rugged pad for its weight and low cost. It did the job, but I woke up frequently throughout the night to re-adjust my sore spots.
In addition, I knew the R-value was going to be a very critical issue since I sleep with a down quilt and not a traditional sleeping bag. Having that insulation beneath me where the quilt doesn't provide coverage is necessary. With the very high R-value with this pad, I know I can trust it as a 3 season pad. I knew it was time to spend some real $$ and get a pad that I knew was built for me. So I ordered this pad.
I chose the large size in the MAX rectangular configuration. I knew I was adding a solid 8 oz to my current sleep setup, but maybe the weight really was worth the comfort. I was going with a lighter tent this year, so the weight I cut from the tent went towards a more comfortable night's sleep on this pad.
When I received this pad, I immediately opened it up to test it out. I used the included inflation sack to pump it up in about 10 fills of air. I do already carry the Big Agnes Pumphouse stuff sack, so I'll be using that instead of the included inflation bag that came with this pad because the Pumphouse is lighter and also doubles as my clothes dry bag. That will save an ounce or two. This pad is HUGE... fitting my entire frame easily. My feet were still on the foot of the pad while I was able to tuck my arm under my head and keep it also on the pad. Great fit! The width is excellent for me, as I can lay on my back and my arms don't fall off of this pad. And I have broad shoulders. I laid on this pad on my back, side, and stomach and I was VERY satisfied with the support. The next thing I immediately noticed was how much body heat this pad was throwing back at me! In my living room it was very warm to lay on - far warmer than any of my other pads.
After testing, it was time to deflate it and see how easy it was to roll up and stow. Unlike some other pads I've owned, it deflated very slow on its own with the valve left open. So, I had to start rolling it from the foot end to squeeze out most of the air so I could fold it and begin rolling it up. Not a big deal, but I do like a pad that I can open the valve in the morning and let it deflate while I do other camp chores. This one goes down very slowly unless you help it along with some body weight. I spent exactly 3 minutes fully deflating, folding in 3rds, and rolling this pad back up to its packaged size (actually slightly smaller because I really pressed every last bit of air out of it. It fit great back in the provided stuff sack, with some room to spare.
- Highest R value you can find at this weight - a true 4 season pad
- Wider and longer for us larger campers
- Comes with a bag that fits over the valve for easy pump inflation
- Material feels thicker and more durable than other lightweight inflatable pads
- Plenty of loft for side and stomach sleepers
- It's not the lightest on the market, but it's a decent weight for its size and durability
- The valve sticks funny out of the corner of the pad, and also is hard to tuck flat when putting back into the stuff sack (observation, not complaint)
- It doesn't pack down to the "Nalgene size" that other pads do, but considering its size and warmth, is a fair compromise
- Some reviews say it's noisy (the baffles inside of the pad do make a crinkly sound) but it didn't bother me at all. May bother a tent mate.
So far, I've only taken it for a test drive in my tent overnight in my back yard -- like I do with pretty much any gear before taking it out on a real trip. First impressions are excellent. You're going to spend some time getting enough air into it, but it wasn't obnoxious. Maybe 5 minutes of lazily exhaling into it.
It's equally firm across the entire length. No pogo'ing around when you shift your weight. For me, the firmness is fantastic. Not to hard, not too soft. The biggest kudo: it didn't lose any air overnight. That's the big one, and the #1 reason I've hated inflatables up until now.
The one small thing I'd like improved is the material texture. It's incredibly slick. If you move around when you sleep, your (equally slick -- probably) sleeping bag is going to shift off of it at some point. Still, it's the most comfortable slip-and-slide I've been on, so don't let that put you off.
