This pad rocks. I have two of them. For the price you can't beat it, I have taken it backpacking four nights on Isle Royale, multiple weeks spent in Colorado backcountry, West Virginia, and so on.


  • Cost effective
  • Material is strong
  • Durable
  • Long lasting
  • Easily packable


  • A little heavy
  • Defect around inflate nozzle requires a little extra glue

This sleeping pad provides enough insulation to keep you warm on colder nights.

The only problem I have had is a leak occurring from the fabric right where the nozzle is (these leaks occurred on fourth use and somewhere around the 20th use). This happened to both of my pads, but was easily fixed with a thick application of gear glue on both sides of the nozzle area (I'm guessing this is a defect or something considering it happened on both my pads in the same exact location).

After gluing that area of both pads they have been working great and Im honestly very happy with them. They are not the lightest pads and they don't pack down the smallest, but I rock a 40L pack and carry this pad, my sleeping bag, and tent.

This pad packs fine on the outside of your pack and the only downfall is it's like 1 and a half pounds heavier than other pads.
