Bought the Stoic for the mattress for a rooftop tent. Outside fabric got caught on an edge in the tent, and tore before the first trip. Patched the tear with wader repair cement, and seemed to fix it after a thorough leak test. A month into a trip to Montana, the valves leaked slowly throughout the night on the pad. Bit the bullet and ordered the Xped Megamat, haven't had any problems with the Exped since. I left the Stoic behind in Montana. If you're wondering why the Stoic is so much less expensive, than the Exped, there's a reason.
