Took the NeoAir out of the package and it is a dark grey color. First impression was that it was well made and durable. I thought I had bought a self inflating pad, so was a bit disappointed that it wasn't that type of pad.

Nevertheless, it was easy to blow up. It took my boyfriend about twenty exhales and then he turned the valve to keep the air from escaping. It felt really good when I laid down on it. Used it overnight in freezing temps and it stayed inflated. I placed my sleeping bag over the top of it and was very cozy. Wasn't at all noisy as I heard another reviewer say.

My only issue with it is packing it up. In order to get all the air out, I would suggest getting as much air out that you can possibly get before trying to roll it up. It makes a big difference when you tri-fold it.

Overall, I am pleased with my purchase.
