NEMO Astro Insulated

Price Paid: $90
I bought the insulated version of the Astro alone, without the Pillowtop. I love camping but normally don't sleep that well on my existing mats.
The Astro is definitely a step up in comfort over other mats I've tried and I slept much better than I normally sleep. Weight and pack size are adequate, but worth it for the better sleep.
The Astro takes a bit of lung power to inflate, which is a downside over my self-inflating mats, but again the trade-off is a more comfortable sleep. I'm considering adding the Pillowtop, but it is quite pricey for what it is.
Overall I'm pretty happy with this purchase.
Where to Buy
Many miles from the hum and buzz of workaday life, the last thing you want to disturb your deep sleep is a pesky root or a fistful of gravel. Forget your typical inch thick backcountry pad, Astro is a full 2.5" thick. Lateral baffles make the pad feel wider and smoother, and 75D polyester fabric resists puncture while keeping the weight down.
Astro Insulated uses a thin layer of polyurethane foam welded to the inner surface of the pad to stop convective currents and create a very consistent and even insulation. Use the integrated valve for inflation, or attach the ultralight Disco Pad Pump for a speedy setup. Astro pads include a stuff sack, compression strap, and repair patches. Available in Air, Air Short, or Insulated models.

NEMO's Astro series pads are built to bring maximum comfort to adventures like backpacking, where weight and packed size are critical. These pads have a generous 2.5" thickness, durable polyester fabric and a raised portion at the head end to supplement your pillow. The Insulated model has a layer of PrimaLoft insulation built in for protection against cold or hot ground. The baffles in Astro pads run across their width, perpendicular to your arms and legs, making their contours barely noticeable. Inflation is done with your lungs or with the clever Disco Pad Pump, sold separately. Astro pads include a stuff sack, compression strap, and repair patches.
