Cush without the weight.
Built for ultralight backpacking, Klymit's Inertia O Zone Sleeping Pad is one of the lightest full-size pads available. Its loft pocket design cuts down on weight without sacrificing comfort, and the integrated pillow supports your head when you lay down to catch some shut eye before your early-morning summit attempt.

Come in heavier than they claimed
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
For those who care about weight, it weight 365g(12.85oz) on my scale without carrying bag (Bag and patch kit weight in 20g). Not 12.2 oz on description. BTW its said it is 12.5oz on the box. Other than that, it's works well. Just little bit of disappointing. Is it supposed to be 12.2oz with bag or not?
Less Puffing More Sleeping

I bought this several years ago at Costco for the same price it is here. I have probably spent a couple months on it altogether. I eventually abused it enough ,stupidly stepping on it while inflated on sharp gravel. Still has a slow leak after patching a few times so I am replacing it. If you don't abuse it ridiculously, this thing is amazingly tough, especially for how light it is. It blows up much faster due to the holes. Most importantly it is very comfortable. You can even sleep on your side without bottoming out. Plus it doesn't squeak or shoot out from under you. I need a lot of pillow so I fold this pillow over the pad and it is still long enough for my 5'7" frame. I am surprised it isn't more popular or bought out by Thermarest. I think the graphics and name make it sound cheap, but the engineering is clearly top notch.
Wake me up in the morning
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I bought this pad for my first backcountry elk bow hunt in 2017. Me and my buddy spent a couple years getting our plan together. I chose this pad because it is 1) lightweight 2) small in packable size 3) affordably priced considering 1 and 2 and 4) has a pillow built in so that’s one less thing to keep up with.
I’ve now used this mat at least 12 times and every time i sleep on it i wake up surprised. When i first lay on it it feels strange, due to the design. Almost like it’s uncomfortable but after a few minutes i settle in and become quite comfy. I sleep on my back and side and it cushions me well in each position. You may find you have to move around a little to get the air pockets in the right place, but it’s a minor inconvenience compared to the overall comfort.
When I wake up I’m always surprised by how well i slept and how comfortable the mat really is. It’s actually REALLY comfortable but because of the minimized contact with your body it feels wierd and takes some getting used to
I am very happy with the mat. I am looking at the Static V for shorter duration trips, but for long (5 days +) trips this lightweight mat will continue to stay in my pack
