PRO - I was skeptical but it is quite durable considering how light it is and the material will withstand being on rough and uneven surfaces just don't shove a sharp stick or rock into the bottom and it should be fine
- When fully inflated my hips are well above the ground which is exactly what I wanted from the thickness. There is even room to deflate it once laying on top to find a more comfortable position.
- The most important factor was that it would be LIGHT weight. That made a large impact in my purchase since it will be in my backpack all the time. Its comfort to weight and size ratio is great
- I fit on it well laying down and the carrying case it comes in makes it so I can stuff it in my backpack well
CONS - Many reviewers mention the crackling noise. It is there and would be an issue for a very light sleeper. Otherwise, I would not worry about it. My only concern is that in a hosel with 6 other people it might bother someone
- It takes some time and energy to inflate. I got a bit light headed trying to get this pad ready to lay on so that might be a problem if you are very tired at night and do not want to sit there inhaling and exhaling before you sleep
Great light pad for backpacking and traveling for comfort and staying warm
One of the most common complaints I hear and read about inflatable pads is the old cold butt syndrome where someone goes to sleep with the pad just fine but they wake in the morning because they think it deflated overnight. Usually this happens in colder conditions and usually it never deflated at all. The problem is pretty simple although can get complex. Using the formula (pressureA x volumeA)/temperatureA = (pressureB x volumeB)/temperatureB with pressure being constant since your body weight creates the bulk of the pressure you can predict the volume of air in the pad at varying temperatures. If you blow into it with your body temperature air and assuming it cools a little as you blow in and accounting for the cooling of the air in the pad due to conduction with the ground you can determine volume. Let's say the air in the pad is down to 70F when you lay down but it gets down to 50F at the coldest time the volume will decrease by almost 30%. To avoid the cold butt you have to blow the coolest air into it as you can (via a pump or stuff sack pump), blow more into it when you think it's full (increasing the initial pressure value), or blow it up when you set up camp then blow more into it just before bed time.
Happy hiking to you!
