This pad is light, comfy, folds up small, durable, wide enough for a grown man. What more can I say, it's from a Northeast company and they know what's up
- Weight (lack of)
- Price (give us backpackers a break)
It's all stated above, awesome product!
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: don't remember, $160 maybe??
Warm, really comfy and packs down small AND it's a wide, long pad!!
- Small packed size
- Full size pad
I went to my, now closed, local outfitter ready to buy a Big Agnes pad. I don't remember the specific model now, it's been a year or so, but it was the inflatible, insulated mattress.
Anyway, the guy at the shop told me, yeah he would sell me that, but I would be much happier with the Nemo Cosmo. He broke them both out, and immediately I liked the Nemo. It was wider, it was longer, and the air chambers go across instead of the whole length.
The reason I was buying one to begin with was that I was going on a 3-week long bicycle adventure!! and I needed something to insulate me from the ground and be comfortable. I could not have asked for anything better!!! I really looked forward to laying down on that thing after riding all day!
It packs down very small. When I bought it, it was folded in thirds then rolled down to about the size of a half a roll of paper towels or so. I ended up just folding it in half then rolling it most of the time and that was plenty small enough.
Do yourself a favor, if you're looking to buy an air mattress, unless you're an ultralight, ounce counter, don't look any further, buy a Nemo Cosmo, you won't be sorry!! This is one of the better investments I've ever made!!!!!
Price Paid: $79
Simply the best pad ever!! Built-in pillow and foot pump make this a treat in the backcountry. I got this for $79...don't like the fact they almost doubled in price over a 1-year period.
Small and lightweight.
Where to Buy
The Cosmo series of pads take inflatable comfort to another level. Cosmo Air is a lightweight sleeping pad with a built-in foot pump. This pad has a generous 3” thickness, but weighs less than 2 lbs, making it ideal for backpacking. Horizontal I-beam baffles create a flatter sleeping pad surface and eliminate any bouncy feel when inflated. Horizontal baffles also tend to support body contours better than vertical baffles since the sleeping pad resists radially folding around the body’s longitudinal axis.
For even more comfort, add the optional Cosmo Pillowtop, a plush cover for your Cosmo Air or Tuo Luxury that features a removable 1" layer of comfort foam and a washable microfiber top.
