Our family bought 4 of the 2"-thick Comfort Series Long size (25x77x2). Two of them do overlap a little in a 2-man tent, but my wife said she has never slept so well on a camping trip. The extra length was great for our 2 sons, both over 6'2".
We used them for a 3-night/4-day kayak trip at Desolation Sound, BC, Canada. They fit just fine in the hatches of our kayaks, or strapped on top behind the cockpit. Deflating was no problem, only had to roll one time to slip easily back into the bags. Now back in Kansas planning where to use them again.

The 5 stars is for CAR camping only. This thing weighs like 10 lbs! It is very, very comfortable and warm. Pitched my tent on snow and didn't feel the cold at all. Have been on several trips where others used those thin backpacking pads and all were complaining about the rocky ground while I had a great nights sleep. This is something I would recommend to a friend or use a a spare mattress for guests.
