ALPS Mountaineering Elevation Air Pad

Get elevated.

The Alps Mountaineering Elevation Air Pad excels when your compact sleeping pad just isn't cutting it. Its ripstop shell is lightweight yet durable for the mountain life, and a built-in pump gives your lungs a break. Two brass valves make deflation a breeze, the stuff sack makes it easy to carry, and the included repair kit means you'll be prepared when your four legged trail partner decides that your bed is a passable chew toy.

comfortable and lightweight

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

I can't believe how lightweight it is and how easy it is to get it to pack down into the little stuff sack it comes with. I would give it 5 stars, but I wish the regular was a little wider- I had to get the bigger size to get the width I wanted. Comfortable for side sleeping and only takes 2 minutes to inflate with a cpr compression motion.

Impressive Comfort

I am incredibly pleased with how this compares to my super cheap Styrofoam pad. The horizontal bars do indeed provide extra support for side sleepers. Only real issue I had was that I had never used a foam pump like the one in the pad. One quick YouTube tutorial later and I was set!
