The crackling noise subsided after about 3 days and I found I liked the full 2" thickness. A friend had ordered a 3/4 length but because of the thickness it was uncomfortable to have his feet and calves hanging off. Go ahead and get the full length one if you have any questions... the weight on the full length is still astonishing low.
I use a down quilt instead of a sleeping bag so the thermarest was all there was between me and the ground at 10,000 feet. I actually got so warm it was hard to sleep the first 3-4 nights and instead of making the connection with the pad I thought I was getting sick. I finally swapped with another person for one night (I had loaned him my self-inflating 3/4 length pad I used a previous year) and when I spent that night chilled it confirmed the pad was what was keeping me warm and I was glad to get the thermarest back!
The only thing that concerns me is that the silver coating that is on the interior of the inflatable tubes appears to be flaking off inside. I have not contacted Thermarest at this point but if it continues I will do so. I would never use this pad outdoors while camping as a chair regardless of the adapter, it's too important and too expensive for me to take the risk of puncturing during a trek.
All in all this is a fantastic, light weight, WARM sleeping pad that folds up flat about the size of two sandwiches and it has now replaced the assortments of pads I kept on hand for different camping seasons and situations.
I still like the mattress however it has started to separate inside. On my last use the bonding inside that keeps the cells connected is separating and it is beginning to "balloon". I need to contact Thermarest and see how well their warranty works. The internal foil insulation has also flaked off on a large majority of the matteress. If it is held up to the sun the loose particles and the gaps are clearly visible.
I still like this pad for the weight, packability and warmth. I just hope that I can get this repaired without having to purchase another one at the same cost...
I got this pad for my little lady for her birthday. I had no real interest in it, but she really REALLY wanted it. The first night we brought it backpacking, she was out fast and slept through the whole night without any issues at all. (Woods, hiking, tenting, all that jazz. None of that sleeping next to your car BS that people call camping.) Now that may not sound like much, but if you've ever gone with the common sleeping systems (air pads, foam pads, or a combination of more than one) actually sleeping through the whole night without waking up dozens of times to adjust yourself is a big deal. The two-mattress method I use mitigated this well for me. The Xlite my girlfriend had eliminated it.
I didn't habeeb it at first, so we traded off. As far as sleeping pads are concerned, it was awesome. It was the most comfortable sleeping system I had used that wasn't something ridiculous like a blowup mattress you'd have in your house for guests.
Mind you that all of this was in the spring. We haven't tried it in winter conditions where insulation becomes the most important factor. For you ultralight bubbahs, this might not be a bad addition to your kit. It compresses much more nicely than other pads like the ProLite.
- It's noisy and not just a little bit. It most literally sounds like you're sleeping on inflated plastic grocery bags. The crunch sound is identical. While amusing at first, it can get annoying fast if you're someone that moves around a lot at night.
- It's not self-inflating. Somewhat arbitrary, but it's a feature I like in the ProLite.
- The pad itself is also extremely thin and prone to punctures. Common sense should apply to the latter though. I can't think of many backpackers who would throw an air pad on the bare ground without some kind of layer between the two. Put something under it first. Either on a tent floor, in a bivy, or on a foam pad. Don't be stupid with it.
If comfort is more important to you than money, this is a worthwhile purchase. It's not cheap, but it delivers what it promises.
