Not bad

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

This isn't bad but not great either. The seams in between the "bubbles" don't inflate much therefore you can bottom out with your knee or if you toss and turn. I found it very comfortable if you are a back sleeper or don't move much. It would be perfect for a hammock though. It's not noisy and has enough grip it won't slide around on you. It packs fairly light and small. Not the smallest but not bad.

I think it is discontinued now but you can still find it on Exped's website. If they would only make it a 1/2 inch thicker it would be great.

Im wondering after watching the videos here,why would the spokesperson suggest to leave the mat open on a hanger,open under the bed,when the mats come a with a packing bag already rolled up inside?..i can see to intially dry out any condensation,but then why leave open permanantly?...thanks

Hey Terence! Similar to sleeping bags, keeping an insulated pad rolled up and packed tight can diminish the loftiness. It certainly won't completely ruin the pad but as a general best practice you should hang it for storage purposes. Let me know if you have additional questions or need some help finding the perfect pad for your next adventure.
