The ability to separately inflate the pillow area is what drew me to this pad. I think the extra valve probably adds some weight but the 70D construction also makes the whole unit hit 19 oz. But that should also be more abrasion-resistant. The main body valve then allows you to firm that area up for comfortable side sleeping, and the many raised air cells keep the bouncy feel to a minimum. The material also has a nice, smooth, almost soft feel to it. I'm excited to take it backpacking for US Labor Day wknd!
Slept on this for 4 days while camping in Utah. Woke up with zero back pain. Lightweight, super easy to inflate. I'd recommend blowing air each night before bed to ensure you are at max. It fit perfectly in my backpacking tent. Would definitely recommend it.
I'm a big dude, let's say over 300 lbs. I blew it up and no issues at all. I was expecting to hear a screaming pig when my fluffy but laid down on it. To my surprise, it held up and was comfortable to sleep on. Would recommend this for the stick people all the way to the fluffy's like myself!!
Loved the stuff bag, ease of inflation, deflation, and separate pillow. As far as comfort, they're a little thin for me. I found myself changing positions all night, from one side to the other side to my back. The back was the most comfortable, even weight distribution I'd guess. After 4 nights I was ready for my bed. I might be getting too old because my son sleeps like a rock.
This is exactly as advertised and while there are lighter sleeping pads, this is worth the weight to carry. I used it for 3nights in the smokies on a backpacking adventure and don't regret carrying it for any of the 27 miles we covered. My boyfriend actually got a different inflatable sleeping pad and one night we switched so he counts feel how happy I was with this one. We both agreed he was terrible and this one was excellent. One night we didn't get to our campsite until after dark. We quickly set up the tent and went to sleep - in the morning we realized I had a bunch of roots and rocks on my side which I never felt. I was impressed. The pillow also inflates to the perfect height and I never had problems rolling it back up into its carry bag. Well worth the price - a bad night's sleep can make a fun hike unbearable.
Well made with nice and fluffy material. Very comfortable. My only regret is not realizing this inflatable mattress does not come with a portable air pump. A built-in pillow is convenient and saves packing space.
The elastic strap is good for keeping the mattress bundled and easy to travel with. Delivery was quick and came well packaged with no damage. Small and portable, sleep one adult, or can be used for two children. The pillow comes attached to the bed, and that's a big plus, I have more space to put other stuff that I might need, instead of a pillow.
So I'm like you...there are always some naysayers with 1 rating and I read those. So it appears that some leak down, so the first thing I did was blow it up (20 blows by mouth) for the main body and about 15 for the pillow). Then I laid on it. surprisingly comfortable! I've yet to sleep on it yet, but it's held air for over 2 days. So I got a good one! Rolls and packs down EZ & fit in the provided bag. Nice and long for a 5' 9" guy. Potentially Nit-picky comment, I'd like to see the pillow indentation on just one side so I could flip it over if desired.
