Valve connection did not work
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
Purchased this based on Kelty's reputation and because I have other Kelty items that are super well constructed. This however did not live up to that - the bag to blow it up is a pretty good design but the valve never connected well, so it was a wrestling match to get the air into the sleeping pad, and I had to try to hold the valve while pumping. I guess the valve is supposed to lock but mine did not. Got it to work once, and it is thick and comfortable. Spend 25 mins the second time and could only get a meager amount of air into it. Not worth the price.
Hi Melanie, I am so sorry to hear the pad did not work as intended. I would love to help you get a replacement or find an alternative option. I've sent you a follow up email.
