The sleeping pad is comfy, but it comes at a price.

Rating: rated 2 of 5 stars
Price Paid: $26

The sleeping pad is comfy, but it comes at a price. It's heavy. REALLY HEAVY. Plus, when you roll it up, it's not very compact.

I was beguiled by the fact that it also turns into a chair, but don't let that persuade you to buy it. Instead, get an inflatable pad and a conversion chair--your back and your backpack will thank you.

It's OK for car camping. I would not take it on a backpacking trip.

P.S. If I had seen the item in a store, instead of the internet, I would NOT have bought it. Not even the low price can compensate for the item's heaviness.

Maximize your backcountry comfort with this camp chair and sleeping pad in one. Chair converts to sleeping pad by removing shockcorded poles; store poles in internal storage pocket when traveling. Closed-cell polyethylene foam provides excellent insulation and durability; open-cell, convoluted foam delivers extra comfort, compression and rebound. Shockcorded poles provide back support when in chair mode. Reinforced webbing end-tips prevent poles from wearing through, while reinforced pole hinges guard against rough surface abrasion. TaslanĀ® nylon top is waterproof, while nylon taffeta bottom is both waterproof and abrasion-resistant. No need to pack a separate pillow--just stuff extra clothes in the internal pillow sleeve! Mesh vent on lower end of pad allows easy and compact roll-up. Zip cover is removable for easy washing. Closeout.
