Likes: Awesome product. My son loves it and has been carrying it on his backpack for a few years now. Super lightweight too.

Dislikes: A bit bulky and doesn't come with any way to store it other than strap it to the pack. Doesn't really compress at all.

Likes: With a 2.2R rating and in conjunction with a Therm-a-Rest closed cell foam pad and an inflatable air cushion and down sleeping bag.You'll sleep like a baby on the coldest of nights.

Dislikes: Nothing,get a coyote pad and relax.

Likes: didn't like it.

Dislikes: Much bigger and bulkier than I thought. Wish I had done my research better. I ended up spending more money and getting a better insulated pad that was light and compressed down (inflatable).

Likes: In terms of closed cell foam pads, this is the only way to go. The pad is extremely light weight, durable, versatile, and most importantly comfortable. No matter what position I sleep in, I still manage to be relatively comfortable, even if I lay on my side. Granted, its not going to be as comfortable as an air pad, but for the price and how light it is who cares. No more waking up with a sore back.

Dislikes: The only thing I wish it had was a stickier surface so your sleeping bag doesn't have a chance to slide off, but as far as I know, no foam pad does so it still definitely deserves five stars.

Likes: I purchased this sleeping pad for my 15 year old son. It rained on our last backpacking trip, and water got in my son's tent. The pad dispersed the water under it and did not soak into the pad.

Dislikes: Tears easily so you have to be careful when you strap it onto a backpack.
