It does work! The extra few degrees granted by the liner allowed me to take a light sleeping bag on a fall bike packing trip. And it was easier to wash than the sleeping bag after three weeks of use. Quite simple product that just gives you more flexibility on trips. I have not used it in the height of summer as a standalone sleeping bag. The material feels quite nice and, obviously, is an easy thing to wash. I have never used a bag liner before and have found it to be a great addition to my sleeping… Full review
Garbage. DOA. Brand new, out of the box, my Uberlite leaked 60% overnight on the first night I used it, sleeping on a freshly swept and mopped, perfectly smooth wooden floor. I sent it back and they made me pay for the shipping, then sent the same one back to me patched up, when I had explicitly demanded a brand new one (so I could resell it). So now I'm out whatever loss I will take trying to sell this patched piece of garbage. This thing is about as strong as a cheap garbage bag and Therm-a-Rest… Full review
A great quilt with top notch materials. It is a bit higher price point than its competitors. The issue many people have is correct sizing. The quilt seems to run a little small unless you are a dead still back sleeper. Size up!! Really nice quilt. Warm, light, durable, and well designed. The price point was a bit higher than competitors at the time of my purchase and I think that has been the primary drawback of this product for me. I have seen other online reviews, in particular Outdoor Gear Lab,… Full review
Bought one of these as an experiment. Looked high tech, but turned out to be nothing special. For the record, I can sleep anywhere and I sleep warm, but I found this one rung up from "no mat at all." Cut it up for my Border Collie Max, who also wasn’t impressed. Closed cell mats are cheaper, lighter (generally) and, of course, unpuncturable, but if they are only slightly more comfortable than "no mat at all," why bother? This mat looked tatty after a three-day trip (pitching on grass, for chrissake!). Full review
I slept on it—brand new—for the first time last night. It is comfy when it is fully inflated. Well, I had to re-inflate FIVE times during one night's sleep. Ablosutely ridiculous! And when it deflated, my bottom was on the floor every time. Full review
A versatile and quality piece of sleeping gear that can be used in many different ways and provide warmth even slightly bellow the rated temperatures. Good option for lightweight backpackers campers and travelers who sleep in various conditions and settings (hammock, tent, hostels, etc.). Context I live in a tropical country and temperatures here hardly ever go below 30°F, even at the height of the winter and in the wilderness and rural areas where it’s always the coldest. Therefore, I can do… Full review
This may be one of the best inventions and, in my opinion, one of the most dangerous gear pieces out there for inexperienced users. It is best used as a heat reflector under a tent, as an under-quilt and covering for a hammock, or used to make a heated shelter. Can also be used as a fireplace heat reflector or as shade from the hot sun. I do not recommend using this as your primary blanket as it only reflects up to 90% of your body heat and it does not generate heat only reflect. Prima Care Medical… Full review
The Western Mountaineering EverLite is a lightweight warm-weather down sleeping bag. A versatile piece of gear, it can also be used as an inner bag or an overquilt. I bought my Western Mountaineering EverLite sleeping bag about 3 years ago as part of my 4lb summer bag/pad/tent setup, and I’m thoroughly impressed with it. It keeps me warm below the 45°F rated temp, packs down way smaller than I’ve needed, and the tapered design makes it very versatile—it can be used as a sleeping bag, blanket,… Full review
Model P3134 Ozark Trail Twin Air Mattress. Bought this mattress at Walmart for about $30. Unboxed it and followed instructions. About two hours later almost all the air was gone. Filled it up again and went to sleep. Woke up next morning on the floor… air all gone. Did this for three days with the same results. Took it back to Walmart but could not get a refund… only option was to exchange for same item. I took the second one home and got the same results. Poor quality, bad customer experience. Full review
