This pad is lightweight and fits in your pack very well for backpacking trips. It is very comfortable, durable, and inflates very quickly. The company has excellent customer service. I contacted them to order a new air valve and they sent it to me for free.


  • Very comfortable
  • Durable
  • Affordable


  • A little heavier than the similar Thermarest mattress

I have owned my Nemo Astro Air pad for four years. It has been used extensively on multi night trips into the backcountry. It has proven to be very durable.  

I see some reviews on other sites that complain about the built-in pillow. I really love the pillow feature on the pad.

It inflates rapidly and Nemo also sells an inflatable pump that is very lightweight. It also deflates easily and rapidly for packing back into your pack after use.
