Ozark Trail Air Mattress Velour Top

I don't know how they can legally call this an "air mattress," when it doesn't hold air! This product is absolutely worthless and doesn't have one redeeming value. I will not review this piece of junk. It is absolutely worthless and a waste of money. Maybe we could file a class action suit against Ozark Trail for false advertising. They claim it's an "Air Mattress," but In order to be an "Air Mattress" shouldn't it at least HOLD AIR?? Warning—do not ever buy one. You'll regret it very soon! Full review

Flextail Tiny Pump X

One of the dumbest purchases that I really like. I had an amazon gift card that I had to use and couldn't find anything, so I did this. I'm embarrassed that I have it. It is seriously one of the laziest things I've ever owned.  Youtube with Exped Synmat Duo - mainly to give you an idea of how loud it is. This inflation took 1min 50 as the battery was getting low. No, I didn't film the entire boring inflation, trust me it worked. It inflates our Klymit double pad in 1 minute and 40 seconds. A single… Full review

Klymit Insulated Hammock V

Goes flat every 20 minutes. Multiple leaks. Bought pad Brand New and used once. Absolute Garbage. Good intention but poor execution and materials. I wish Therm-a-Rest made a similar pad. I bought it brand new at the Boy Scout Store in Atlanta. Next day I drove to the Blue Ridge Mountains here in Georgia. After I hiked in to camp I set up a ground sheet for keeping stuff of the ground, set up my Warbonnet Blackbird XLC (American Made) and then inflated the Insulated hammock V Pad (Chinese). Went… Full review

Exped Ultra 1R

Exped's lightweight and easy to use Ultra 1R sleeping pad is quiet, durable, and provides substantial comfort throughout a wide temperature range. Paired with a short CCF (closed-cell foam) pad, the Ultra 1R proved to be comfortable down to the mid-30°F range on the 93-mile Wonderland Trail in Mount Rainier National Park in September 2022. Although this sleeping pad is aimed toward lightweight/ultralight hikers, any camper looking for a compact and durable sleeping pad may find this product more… Full review

Ozark Trail Air Mattress Velour Top

Zero stars. 20+ years experience of sleeping on air mattresses. This is by far the worst ever. Zero stars. I have regularly used air mattresses for 20+ years one weekend a month in a room full of teens. I was excited about the extra height this single air mattress had. As I age I need height to get up easier. I expect an air mattress to survive 2-3 years. This one did not even get me through two nights. I understand stretching, so I tried it again for several more nights. Never have I had an air… Full review

Therm-a-Rest MondoKing 3D

Best pad for car camping I'm not a young chickadee anymore. I bought this pad and I spend a lot of time camping with my son's Boy Scout Troop. My regular Therm-a-Rest from 1998 wasn't exactly doing the job.  This bad boy is big and bulky but feels like your mattress at home. I don't even need a cot. I live in Upstate New York and as added plus this pad is extremely warm and insulating.  Full review

Sea to Summit Ether Light XT Extreme Insulated

Super comfy, heavy, large. I am a confirmed side sleeper (left side down). Bought this mat because I desperately needed a high R-rating pad for camping in single F digits. Thought at the time it was too expensive. Used it recently for multi-day backpack in Sierra high country. It is more comfortable than my two Warbonnet hammocks (including a Bridge), my Therm-a-Rest hammock, my Hennessy hammock, even my Select Comfort mattress at home! And...it reflects heat back at you so it feels like you have… Full review

NEMO Tensor Ultralight

A comfortable, compact, and lightweight inflatable sleeping pad. Especially in the chosen size/format (regular wide). Like most other lightweight pads, requires care and attention to avoid damages and leaks. The 2.5 R-Value means four-season usability for my tropical settings, even without supplemental insulation. Since I resumed using my 1P tent for camping a few months back, I decided to go for a higher R-Value sleeping pad. Nothing wrong with my beloved Ether Light XT air. It’s long, wide,… Full review

EcoTek Outdoors Hybern8 Sleeping Pad

I found myself a reasonably priced sleeping pad that is lightweight, compact, and most importantly, gives me a good night's sleep. I've put together a video review of the ECOTEK hybern8 sleeping pad. This sleeping pad is inexpensive, lightweight, and rolls up into a small package that takes up little room in a backpack. I bought the three-season version with an R rating of 2.2, but this company also manufactures a colder weather version that features an R value of 4.7.  I found it to be very comfortable. Full review
