The innovative NEMO Vector Insulated is a compact and lightweight inflatable sleeping pad. Providing a 3 inch sleeping base and Primaloft insulation while weighing 1 lb 1 oz (for the Regular size), the Vector is ready-made for winter backpacking. An integrated foot pump makes inflation easy.
The Spaceframe baffles (die-cut trusses of low-stretch fabric) eliminate the springiness found in most pads. This creates a more stable sleep surface, better for rolling side-to-side and for keeping your elbows off the ground.
Unlike the limited number of vertical baffles employed by most traditional inflatable pads, the Vector utilizes undulating lateral air baffles to offer the most comfort. A metalized film layer provides a reflective barrier that actually directs heat back to your body and cold air back to the ground and a layer of Primaloft on the inside of the baffles provide consistent insulation. The increased number of baffles helps to increase stability and avoid the "inflatable raft" feeling caused by over-inflated vertical baffles.The integrated foot pump is fast and efficient, and vastly superior to using your lungs, especially after a day on the trail.
The NEMO Vector Insulated inflatable pad is available in 20 Regular (72" x 20"), and 25 Long (76" x 25") size options.

Real Customer Reviews
- Great sleeping pad
Likes: This pad is extremely lightweight. It's very comfortable, and with enough air, keeps me off the ground, even when sleeping on my side. I chose the longer, wider version. While that adds weight, it allows me to sleep a little better. While I don't intend to do a lot of cold weather camping, I chose the insulated model just in case. I like the built in foot pump instead of using breath to inflate this item.
Dislikes: The material on this is pretty thin, 20D I believe. While this helps with the weight, will have to see how this holds up. The foot pump does take up to 100 pumps or more for me to inflate this to desired firmness. My tent is very low profile, which makes it challenging to inflate. The door of my tent is at the head of my sleeping bag, so I unroll the pad into my tent, but backwards, with the foot pump near the door. When inflated, then I put the pad into the tent the proper way. If your tent has a door on the side, it might be even more challenging to inflate.
- Awesome Sleeping Pad
Likes: Very Comfortable. Easy to inflate with foot pump! This pad is extremely comfortable and keeps me warm. Shoulders and hips do not bottom out when side sleeping!
- Comfortable in those cold temps
Likes: I brought this pad down into the low 20s during an overnight trip and was pleasantly surprised. I was warm throughout the whole night without waking up from the chilly ground. The inflation of the pad was quick and needed little effort. I will be using the pad for years to come even though it may cost a little extra weight.
Dislikes: I could see how some may look at the weight as a disadvantage, but I believe that a good night sleep makes any trip that much better.
The fabric material on the exterior of the seems thin, I haven't had to make any repairs after multiple trips, but I will keep an eye on it.
- Great pad!
Likes: Love this sleeping pad. Spent the money on this one and not the Thermarest Neo Air Xtherm because there is a huge difference in noise. I can't stand sleeping next to the crinkly sounding pads and this one is super quiet compared to everything else in its league (Wife is appreciative too). Opted for the additional weight of the pump too which is a huge luxury at higher altitudes
Dislikes: None so far. Working great.
