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
