Review :

Out of all of the sleeping pads which I have and have used over the years, this remains my number one choice.   Not only for winter but even for the summer months.

Speaking of the summer months, I’ve found that I can go with a lighter insulating layer thanks to the warmer sleeping pad.  I was worried that the pad would be too warm in the summer trips. I had no issues with over heating in the summer nights

In the winter, it has taken care of me all the way now to -10f with nothing more than a moisture barrier between the pad and the ground.

Absolutely no leaks or issues to report over the years of use. How long has it been; I purchased this early 2014 and with some care, it looks almost new.

Works just as good on the ground as it does in a hammock.

The weight and durability of this pad are amazing! The cost is high, but worth every penny.

I am also a side sleeper and I can report no bones in the dirt while on this pad.

The fact that this little wonder rolls up so small and only weighs about a pound is a huge plus consider my back issue. The inflation bag is a great idea as well an it works!

Negative: There is some noise with this pad but I’m comfortable sleeping outdoors so I can block out most noises including this one.  It’s noisy but not loud.  It’s a crinkle!
