Pros Light, packable, integrated foot pump for easy inflationWarm, comfortable, easy to inflateBed-like comfort, easy inflation, great valueVery comfortable, very warm, easy to useVery comfortable, large
Cons Expensive, not very warm, bouncy feelLarge packed sizeToo big for some single person tentsLarge packed size, expensiveBig packed size, hard get in its stuff sack, heavy
Bottom Line This is one of the only pads in our review than will fit in your luggageA high scorer in our tests, this pad is warm and comfy and easy to inflateThis plush pad is comfortable, warm, and affordable. It does take up a lot of space, even when packedWith four inches of foam you can't go wrong, unless you don't have space to store itThis mat takes up loads of space in the trunk, but if comfort is your top priority, this is a great choice
