User Review: NEMO Cosmo Air
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!!!!!
