This is an amazing sleeping pad. So comfortable and exactly what I was looking for.

Pros

  • Comfort
  • Versatile
  • Packs small
  • No noise while moving around on the dream

Cons

  • Sheet gets dirty quickly
  • Have to blow it up everytime

The comfort and versatility of being able to use the whole Dream sleeping pad with the foam NeoAir Camper and sheet while car camping, or just use the NeoAir Camper while backpacking is exactly what I was looking for. I have some back problems and being able to rely on this for a 7-week camping trip is great because I wasn't sure if my back would be able to handle the camping.

Great comfort in a relatively packable size.

Pros

  • Thickness
  • Comfort
  • Even rolled up still fits nicely into my canoe pack.
  • Fits in all my two-person tents

Cons

  • Pain to blow up
  • Never did master the "use the stuff sack
  • to blow it up" with method.

I'm a Venture Advisor with Scouts Canada, so I'm under canvas about 30 nights of the year in all seasons. This pad is my main go-to pad when I'm at a static camp. It's a pain to blow up, but comfort is king.

This pad coupled with my Woods Arctic 5 Star sleeping bag is great once the temp drops in November and doesn't rise again until April. Also, even when blown up it fits nicely into all my two-man tents I use throughout the four seasons I'm scouting in.

I've had this pad for four years. A great buy.

Experience

I have a shelf full of camp pads.

Pros

  • Super comfortable whether you sleep on your side or your back
  • Rolls up easily
  • Slides easily into its stuff sack.

Cons

  • It takes awhile to inflate.

I have owned this pad for three years and probably slept on it 60-70 nights — I love it. It's very comfortable and perfect for car camping.
