Real Customer Reviews
- Good, but reflective surface not durable
Likes: A classic camping stuff. Durable and light weight foam.
Dislikes: The reflective (aluminium like) stuff don't last when you move a lot on it.
- Works for a paranoid hiker
Likes: Lightweight and a great under pad for my Therm-a-rest NeoAir Xlite. I'm always paranoid about getting a hole in my sleep system and this helps ease that mental anguish
- Super light, affordable comfort for toddler
Likes: R-value, comfort, and price point can't be beat for my toddler's first pad. . This coupled with his BA Little Red sleep system may just allow me to do some camping with him a bit further from the car. I'm also going to be able to lash this "kid size/short" to my solo pack in cooler weather for added comfort/warmth under my inflatable. Love it!
Dislikes: None? Maybe it's tendency to have "shape memory" from being rolled, takes some fidgeting to get it in his pad sleeve, but, I'm really stretching to find a dislike with that
- Lightweight and keeps me warm
Likes: Great insulation, kept me warm in 32 degree weather.
Dislikes: Rollin it up tight is a bit of a pain, I wish it folded like other ones, but not a huge deal
Likes: Not much has changed compared to my old sleeping pad that is falling apart. I'm sure this will be the same comfort as it. I use this under my inflatable mattress for extra warmth and to keep from wearing out an expensive mattress. Good Price for the pad.
Dislikes: I don't like that it rolls up taking TONS of pack space- even rolled up on the outside. Rolling up takes up precious space in my pack and on the outside even when rolled as tight as I can. I found that Therm-a-Rest Z-Lite fold up sleeping pad for saving extra space, so I just put that one on order to use instead and will let my kid use this one.
Likes: I have had this product for over a year and used it many times. For the price, it really is the best option out there.
Dislikes: It is bulky for backpacking, but it does a great job for when your sleeping on it.
Likes: Extremely light. It's not the most comfortable sleeping pad, but it insulates a lot of heat.
Dislikes: It's a bit bulky. When I take it out, I attach it to the outside of my pack with some lash straps since it would take up too much room in my pack.
Likes: Best you can find for the price!
Dislikes: Nothing for the price!
Likes: This sleeping pad has a great design with the aluminized surface to reflect heat back to the body. This pad is very lightweight and super durable
Dislikes: I only wish that it could be rolled up to slightly smaller dimensions for greater mobility.
Likes: Decent sleeping pad for its price. Worked surprisingly well
