This pad is great! I just took it out and it's just the right amount of cushion the only thing that kept me up was the "whistle pigs" marmots. Also fit perfectly in my pack. Small and lightweight this pad was worth it.

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

The Lite-Core self-inflating sleeping pad is the lightest, most compact women's pad from REI, optimizing warmth, compressibility and weight. Women-specific design helps you stay warm with increased insulation and padding in torso area, a key heat-loss area for women. Foam insulation is cross-cored for maximum compressibility and weight reduction. Low-volume, tapered, mummy shape increases efficiency and compressibility. Quick-closing, high-volume airflow valve allows the pad to inflate and deflate quickly. Rugged Taslan(R) nylon diamond-ripstop top surface has a nonslip texture; 75-denier polyester bottom surface resists wear. Grippy silicone pattern on upper surface helps keep sleeping bag from sliding off pad. R-value rating is 3.2. Stuff sack (included) protects pad during transport and ensures a compact parcel every time.
