The innovative Klymit Static V2 inflatable sleeping pad weighs just one pound, stuffs down to backpacker-friendly dimensions 8" x 3", and delivers excellent support and comfort at a price that won't break the bank.
Don’t be fooled by its affordable price tag, the Klymit Static V2 inflatable sleeping pad is full of innovation and delivers high performance for backpacking. Let’s take a closer look at what this makes this pad so unique.
As soon as you look at the Static V2 its unique shaping jumps right out at you. Traditional inflatable sleeping pads tend to have long vertical baffles. There are certainly some other pads on the market that utilize horizontal baffles. On the Static V2 you have got V shaped chambers that run down the center of this pad. It gives it really unique, comfortable ergonomics. Also creates a bit of a headrest here at the top of the pad. And these cutaways, these deep cutaways help to save weight as well. This pad weighs just a single pound. Part of that reason is the shaping of those baffles.
Along the sides you will see more of a horizontal design. That really helps to kind of hold you in position and on the pad during the night, which, again, adds to the comfort and ensures that you have got the cushioning, the support of that pad beneath you all night long.
The Static V2 is not an insulated pad. There isn’t any additional warmth built in to the pad. So definitely a great summer or mild weather pad. But it is worth mentioning that that deep channeling between the chambers does have a warming effect in that it captures warm air so it is warmer than a lot of other uninsulated pads that are out there.
We have referenced the fact that it is an inflatable sleeping pad. So this is a pad that you need to blow up. A simple to use valve located at the top of the pad that channeling all the cutaways in this pad make it blow up really, really quickly. So it doesn’t take all that much air to get this pad fully inflated to its 23 inch wide and 72 inch long dimensions.
If you want to fine tune the fit after you have blown it up and you are laying down, it is easy to reach over our shoulder, open that nozzle, let a little air out and pinch it closed again. For myself I actually find an inflatable pad to be a little bit more comfortable if you let just a little bit of air out of it which lets you sink down into the pad.
That inflatable design also enables this pad to pack down small. Klymit includes a stuff sack with each and every pad and you can see just how small that packs down. On the interior of that stuff sack Klymit also includes a small field repair kit, so if you should run into any issues in the back country, it is fairly easy to patch that pad.
Klymit Static V2 inflatable sleeping pad. At just over 16 ounces with that great, great back packer friendly packed size, this pad is definitely built for back country use.
