Cons Big packed size, hard get in its stuff sack, heavyLarge packed sizeToo big for some single person tentsLarge packed size, expensiveSlight bounciness, heavy
Bottom Line This mat takes up loads of space in the trunk, but if comfort is your top priority, this is a great choiceA 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 itFoam car camping comfort that packs into a smaller and lighter package than its peers
