Review :

This pad is huge! Long, wide and heavy.

Only for car camping or situations where you can deliver your gear.. Only a giant is going to carry this pad.

Great quality materials.

Very comfortable; good thickness, comfortable even for side sleepers.. Material isn’t annoying to your skin like some sleeping pads.

Inflates on it’s own.

Easy to release the air and roll it up.

Cons :
I’m not a fan of the built in pillow. I see where they are going with it but in my opinion it isn’t really a pillow.

The top of the pad has some additional thickness but it’s not enough to equal a pillow. For me, I would be using my backpack or some clothes for a pillow with this pad.

  1. Thanks Luke for another great review. I have never watched a bad video from T.O.G.R.. I recently started a YouTube channel and my channel name is SC Outdoor Quest. I wish I could create a channel as super as yours!
