Comfortable, durable, lightweight, and quiet. Packs up quite small.

Pros

  • No squeaking if you toss or turn
  • Comfortable
  • Packs up small

Cons

  • Can take awhile to blow up

The Nemo Tensor 25L is quite convenient for camping or even just to bring to a friend's house. It can be inflated with a hair drier or anything else you can get in the quick release valve (though make sure you don't have the hair drier on a high heat mode). Blowing it up can be a bit of a chore, but worth it overall. Comes with its own repair kit, and although I haven't needed it yet I am glad to have it.

It's about 2" thick when blown up, and is quite comfortable, whether you like it firm or a bit softer. I haven't had a sore back because of it, after using it about 20 times. 

Originally purchased at REI, and one of the reasons I got it (besides the compact size) is that it doesn't make much of a crunching or squeaking noise when inflated. It is near silent when compared to other inflatable sleeping pads that I tried in-store. 

There's not much else to say. It's a great pad, definitely worth it if you can find it on sale like I did.
