REI AirRail 1.5 Self-Inflating Pad
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $35
Purchased at one of REI's "garage sales" for $35 for my 90-lb daughter to use on backpacking trips. She loves it and says it is really comfortable. Packs down to a size that's easy to put inside the backpack alongside her sleeping bag in the bottom pocket.
- Packs small and is lightweight
- Durability seems good
- None so far
Our local REI had one of its members only "garage sales" earlier this summer so I was able to replace my daughter's older big green Therm-a-Rest with this more pack friendly sleeping pad.
She's used it a couple of times on multi-night backpacking trips and really likes it. It seems to be well made and she had no leaks.
I recommend this pad.
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
Whether you're backpacking the high plains or at high altitudes the self-inflating REI AirRail 1.5 sleeping pad is lightweight and takes up little space in your backpack. Pad features a die-cut foam center panel and full length, raised tubes on the outside (insulated with PrimaLoft(R) synthetic down microfiber) to keep you from rolling off. Foam insulation is cross-cored and engineered to be lightweight, compressible and stable. Quick-closing, high-volume airflow valve allows the pad to self-inflate and deflate quickly. 75-denier polyester construction with a hexagonal embossed surface provides durability and a nonslip surface; 75-denier polyester bottom resists wear. REI AirRail 1.5 sleeping pad has a fully welded construction that is leakproof and durable. Low-volume, tapered, mummy-shape design increases efficiency and compressibility. R-value equals 4.2; most sleeping pads we sell range in R-value from 1.0 (minimally insulated) to 9.5 (well insulated). Included stuff sack protects pad during transport.
