Ozark Trail Air Mattress Velour Top

Bought a full size a month ago. We use it on Friday nights for a grandson to sleep on. Only holds air till the middle of the night. I am not satisfied with this product at all. The only good things are the ease of setting it up and putting away. It won’t hold air all night. You wake up on the floor. Very disappointed. Glad I only wasted 25 dollars. Full review

Therm-a-Rest NeoAir UberLite

Excellent weight, comfort and packed size. Have used on the AT. The UberLite is excellent. It is so light that I was concerned how well it would hold up, but it has proved to be as durable as other heavier sleeping pads. I used it on the AT in colder weather and was expecting it to be cold based on the R rating (2.3), but it was actually pretty warm. The weight, pack size, and usability cannot be beat. It has the same thickness as other sleeping pads from Therm-a-Rest, so it is plenty comfortable. … Full review

Klymit Insulated Static V Lite

Klymit uses their own rating system for this pad. As follows R-VALUE 4.4/ASTM 1.9. This is a great pad for cool nights. It is a poor pad for very cold nights. Klymit claims that because of the way their pad is designed the ASTM rating is incorrect. I beg to differ. When it is really cold you will regret thinking this was a 4.4 and you might get angry. I did.  Full review

Ozark Trail Air Mattress Velour Top

First one I bought was returned the second day and replacement did not even last three months. Internal pump is a VERY BAD IDEA...I'm out $60. Not sure if after a few months it still has guarantee. NEVER AGAIN...WON'T HOLD THE AIR...PUMPING ALMOST EVERY DAY. Full review

Ozark Trail Air Mattress Velour Top

I have bought two of these in the past three months; both leak from day one and they both leak air at the seams. This is the worst air mattress I have ever bought, have to pump up it every hour and half. Absolute worst. Worst air mattress ever. Purchased two, both leaked from day 1 at the seams.  Full review

Therm-a-Rest NeoAir XTherm

Best pad ever, if it were a little wider. If you sleep on your side your butt and knees are off of the pad. Full review

Klymit Double V

Decently comfortable, UNINSULATED pad for two. Great for summer adventures. Bad for cold temps! This was our first Klymit and first double pad. We got a great deal on this pad and figured we would try it out. This was before we bought insulated pads—and really the reason we bought insulated pads! The pad is a little smaller than the specs at 46" wide by 73" long. 73" by my tape measure 46" wide   Weight without sack Weight in sack I guess the listed weight is that without the sack. Interestingly… Full review

Klymit Insulated Double V

Comfortable, warm sleeping, albeit heavy pad for two. We currently own three double sleeping pads. Two Klymits—this insulated one, an uninsulated, and an Exped SynMat HL Duo.  If you as a couple can handle canoeing/tandem kayaking/tandem bicycling, then a double pad is for you. The double pads are warmer (no space between for cold air to come up), don't move around as much as singles and make sharing a double quilt much more enjoyable. I've tried couplers like that with the EE accomplice and… Full review

Sea to Summit Ether Light XT Extreme Insulated

A super comfy lightweight mat for warm sleep in cold conditions. When the conditions are “extreme,” the Ether Light XT Extreme Insulated pad delivers. The Thermolite insulation helps you forget that you are sleeping on the ground, and it is completely worth the bulk and weight. I have been a fan of the Sea to Summit UltraLight Insulated mat for a few years now, and have reviewed it here previously. For the weight and packability (16 oz), it provides really good comfort in warmer weather. But… Full review
