Great for winter car camping

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Tried this in winter camping on top of snow and ice. Definitely kept us warm and cozy and very comfortable. I did have trouble since the tent was pitched on slightly unlevel ground. Throughout the night thee sleeping bag was sliding on the sleeping pad. I did read online to try lying down some carpet gripper between the bag and the pad which I will have to try next time. Overall a great addition for adding comfort to car camping.

This Mattress Simply Works!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

We bought 2 of these for our cross-country road trip to go along with our pop-up cabin tent. Every night we were ready to sleep in less than 10 minutes from car to camp-ready. And packing up was a breeze as well. Let them unroll, blow 5 - 10 breaths into them to firm them to your liking, close the valves, velcro them together, throw a double bag on top, and presto! Sleep in comfort, on gravel, hard dirt, pine needles, slightly rocky soil, it doesn't matter.

Quality

    Well constructed, durable, comfortable. Completely self-inflates. Use it for van camping and I think it will last many years.

    Unbelievable

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is definitely needed for any camping adventure. You won't be disappointed, as the comfort of the pad keeps you from getting a restless sleep while you are out in the elements. Wake up and feel refreshed with this pad so you can go hard at it the next morning.

    Great for intended purpose

      We bought this product for a recent road trip my wife and I went on. We decided to forgo hotels and camp instead traveling to and from of our destination. Not once did we have a restless night, we slept wonderful. I highly recommend you follow the instructions before your first use so that you get maximum expansion out of your pads. My wife and I are side sleepers, so we puff a few extra breaths of air into them and be fine. We even slept on rocky terrain on the side of the Rio grande gorge and we're just as comfortable as could be. While in Colorado at our friends home we slept on them on the floor instead of the couch. I highly recommend them for any kind of camping other than backpacking. They are large. We were car camping so they fit our needs. I like how you are able to double it up if your going solo, which will be fine when I travel to go mountain biking.

      Car camping in style

        You just can't put a price on good sleep, and this is the perfect pad for car camping and glamping. I've used this in the back of my subaru, tent, and friends house - all for a perfect night's sleep. I've slept through alarm clocks, barking dogs, burning houses, and Superbowl 49 on this pad. What it lacks for in packability, it makes up for in a consistent, comfortable, cushy camping mattress.

        Defiantly not backpacking but perfect for car camping... and the built quality is exceptional.

        'Zzz' Catcher

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        It's pretty simple--Foam AND Air? Freakin' cozy sleeping set up. It's not even close to anything I'd recommend for backpacking, but for car camping, it's the bees knees.

        Great Lightweight Pad

          I haven't been able to use this camping yet, but its worked amazing for the few ski trips I've been on. Normally a couch surfer or floor sleeper, but this pad has changed my uncomfortable ever changing sleeping environment to a consistent, cozy bed. Super easy to just throw in the car compared to a full blown air mattress.

          What is the pad thickness and R rating?

          Hey Holly! ALPS gives this an R rating of 6.9 and the pad is 3" thick. Be careful with the R value varying between brands as there is no scientific, universally accepted test for a sleeping pad's thermal resistance. Give me a shout at isaukerson@backcountry.com if you have any other questions or need help finding a pad. Thanks!

          Comfortable, durable, big pad.

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          I've slept on this pad for at least 90 (yes 90)nights in the last year whether it's in the back of my truck on trips or at home when my wife bought some new bedroom furniture that outgassed so badly I couldn't sleep in the bedroom for a while. These pads are very durable construction. They never leak any air. I let some air out to get the softness where I like it and then they just stay there for a month or whatever. You do get a small gap in the padding where they Velcro together, but it's never been an issue for us. These are big and heavy compared to lightweight, backpacking pads.

          FINALLY - a decent, thick, light pad

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          About time! These pads (bought 2) velcro together for couples snuggle-time (double bag), are light, have two air intakes, easily inlfate, are way thicker than anything we've seen (for the price) and are finally, finally getting us to sleep better than the BS thinner (but expensive) pads we've had for years.

          I could go on & on but the thickness, pack-ability, and comfort of these is enough really: we're super pleased, finally. FINALLY!

          good pads

          • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

          Great pads for car/truck camping. even better when you double them up for one person. wife and i enjoyed each pad.

          Plush!

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          This is thing is awesome if you are not at all concerned about weight or room. They are pretty large even when rolled up and definitely no light but boy are they comfortable! Great for two people, one person who wants to sprawl out or one person luxury (velcro the two pads together one on top of the other making a 6 in cushion!)

          air trapped foam

            a great idea.
            They insulate well so keep the ac on. it's not cushy unless u open the valve. enjoy...

            Perfect for car camping,

              Fantastic mat! Very cushy and comfortable. Much better than a standard blow up mattress. Love that the pads come apart so you are getting 2 great pads for the price. Pretty big when rolled up, which is why they are best used for car camping. Thanks for the free, super fast shipping too!
