User Review: REI Stratus Insulated Air Pad
Source: received it as a personal gift
Lightweight and comfortable.
I really like this pad, but wish it had a slightly higher R value. I took it out for the first time in January as I received it as a Christmas present and the temperature got down into the low 30s. I was using a 32 degree Mountain Hardwear bag with a liner and ended up with a couple of cold spots.
Since I was doing some testing for a first run I luckily brought my 0 degree Mountain Hardwear bag also and was warm once I switched bags. I did get a really comfortable night's sleep.
I generally use a Therm-a-Rest BaseCamp self-inflating mat, since I do mostly car camping, but this mat was much more comfortable. The fabric is rugged and I look forward to many good years of use.
