Therm-a-Rest NeoAir All Season

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A comfortable and reliable insulated air mattress, good on cold ground down to about 0˚C. Our pair has served us well over the last five years. We (my wife and I) purchased a pair of these from a Norwegian retailer in the run-up to our 2014 two-family hike on the John Muir Trail. We used them on that 25-day journey and every backpacking trip we have done since, and for a lot of frontcountry camping as well. I would guess that it all adds up to six months of nights out over nearly five years now. Full review

Klymit Massdrop x Klymit Ultralight V

rated 3.5 of 5 stars This pad was specially made for Massdrop, and was an excellent deal at $60. Although it has a lot of good qualities (high R-value, light, easy inflation/deflation), ultimately it was just not comfortable enough for my backpacking sleep needs. It may work well for back sleepers, but was not comfortable for me, a slender built side and stomach sleeper. I was searching for a sleeping pad for my backpacking trips that was light, had a high R-value, was comfortable and packed down tight. The Klymit Ultralight… Full review

Therm-a-Rest NeoAir Dream

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great comfort in a relatively packable size. I'm a Venture Advisor with Scouts Canada, so I'm under canvas about 30 nights of the year in all seasons. This pad is my main go-to pad when I'm at a static camp. It's a pain to blow up, but comfort is king. This pad coupled with my Woods Arctic 5 Star sleeping bag is great once the temp drops in November and doesn't rise again until April. Also, even when blown up it fits nicely into all my two-man tents I use throughout the four seasons I'm scouting… Full review

Therm-a-Rest NeoAir Camper Duo

rated 4 of 5 stars Comfort is king (according to my wife), and this sleeping pad delivers! For three-season camping, it works great and allows us to sleep together (unless she zips up her sleeping bag and shuts me out, that is). Weight and Size:The overall dimensions are: Length = 77" (1.9m) Width = 50" (1.3m) Height = 3.5" (8.9cm) (stated 3") Weight = 4lbs. 5oz. (stated 4lbs. 2oz.)   Comfort and Maneuverability:With the two independent chambers and nearly 3.5 inches of comfort, the NeoAir Camper Duo is among the… Full review

Big Agnes AXL Air

rated 3.5 of 5 stars An extremely light and comfortable sleeping pad suitable for its intended use—warm summer nights. Besides comfort and being extremely lightweight, it packs small and easily, has a good design to prevent roll-off, is relatively easy to inflate, and seems cooler on warm summer nights. Minor detractions include valve not adapting to DIY inflation, slipperiness on a tent floor, mild noise when tossing and turning, and an occasional shift needed to avoid a root coinciding with the depressions in the… Full review

REI Flash Insulated Air Pad

rated 4 of 5 stars ->Light 15 oz. air insulated mattress with a 3.7 R value. ->Fast to inflate with a Sea to Summit valve-compatible inflator dry bag. ->Comfortable and warm enough for shoulder season (15°F) use. ->Several reported weld failures by owners; newest version said to have fixed this (fingers crossed). There are several companies making insulated air mattresses at present. These are not to be confused with the foam filled self inflating air mattresses we are accustomed to using. These new insulated… Full review

Big Agnes Insulated Air Core Ultra

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Ditto! Coincidence? I've had an almost identical experience as Charles Brodeur (reviewer, above) reported:  Undetectable leak; warranty replacement.  Several years in storage.  Replacement pad developed a leak after two nights; this tiny leak detected at fabric-plastic joint at old style brass valve. I was advised to "Goop" it (silicone sealer) and, if that didn't seal the leak satisfactorily, to return it for a second replacement. Very cooperative CS. (I have not tried the Goop treatment yet.) … Full review

Big Agnes Insulated Air Core Ultra

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Does not seem as heavy material as original Q-Core. I had the older model Q-Core and while it took a bit to inflate, it was a very nice sleeping platform and served me well until leaks started for some reason. The first product was returned to REI after a failure of the valve that occurred during a fire camp in Washington state. It made some tough sleeping for the two weeks on that wildland fire. I deploy several times a year and sleep is pretty important after working 15 hours straight. I repaired… Full review

Big Agnes Insulated Air Core Ultra

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Third time's the charm? Time will tell. I received this new model under warranty replacement. I had originally purchased one of the prior model that's a mute dark purple. It held air for about a week before it started to leak slowly. Within a few more days it would deflate in a matter of hours without laying on it. After doing leak testing and not finding the culprit I sent it to BA for repair and they promptly replaced it with a new one of the same. It was worse. Testing it at home it started slowly… Full review
