Klymit makes comfy pads and this is a good price, but I will never purchase their pads again becauase they develop leaks SO fast. I went through 2 of the insulated Double V pads between 1 3-night backpacking trip and 3 additional nights camping on it (on flat, non-rocky ground with a ground cloth beneath the tent). First one was a dud right from the start, and the replacement pad wasn't worth the money spent.

I had the same initial thought but I didn't realize how carefully you have to seal the plugs. Of course a little bit of air will come out regardless.

I've had the same experience. Really like the pad, and it's nice that they inflate in 4-5 breaths. Very lightweight and great for backpacking - but I have gone through 3 and not had one of these last over 1 year with light to moderate use (about 4 backpacking trips per year). Every single one developed substantial leaks that made them unusable.

We switched to the backpacking cots, and have been much happier.

if you decide to buy this, make sure that you leak test it before every single trip. Nothing will make you grumpier after a 15-mile trek then to find out your butt is sleeping on the hard ground that night.

I have this pad and like it a lot. I used it only 1 time so far. I have this and a standard sized pad.
My son used thr standard sized. I don't know if I'd be comfortable on that. I'm 6'2" 215lb. Having the extra width and length is good

I'm getting old (read "experienced") and have learned the hard way (read "hard ground")…. No inflatable beds. (They will leak). Of any kind (they will leak). Camping. EVER (because they will leak!). Grrrrr!

I bought one of the many $30 ones on Amazon over a year ago and have used it many times, including as a sled. It still holds air and we've been very rough with it.

That's what I found too. I didn't want a $300 pad for such occasional use, so I bought one from Amazon. I decided to use the HECK out of the cheap Amazon pads and when one set stopped holding air after several months of sleeping on them every weekend and sometimes during the week (lots of covid camp outs), I contacted the company and they replaced them, no questions asked and the replacements have held up beautifully. Unlike Klymit, who wanted me to send my pad back at my expense to fix. And the fix would've probably blown in another 2 uses.

This seems like a decent price but probably not the best purchase. There are generally 2 types of camping pads: car camping and backpacking pads. For the former, I have an old heavy inflatable mattress that is thick, heavy, cheap, and takes me forever to inflate by breath but is heavy duty and quite comfortable. I also have a backpacking pad that's super light, fairly comfortable, lower in durability compared to the first, but fairly popular in backpacking community. It's also quite a bit more expensive but you don't want to cheap out on a backpacking pad. If your car camping pad pops, bit of a bummer, sleep in the car. If your backpacking pad pops when you're out in the mountains, all of a sudden you have a survival situation- the pad is your insulation from the cold ground; even with a super premium sleeping bag, you'll lose a ton of body heat by directly laying it on the ground.

This pad straddles somewhere in between and does both poorly. I'd prefer something more comfortable and heavier for car camping, and something lighter and reliable for backpacking.
I don't want to gatekeep the sport so if you can't afford premium gear, don't let that stop you. But try to know which audience you are and buy accordingly.

I've got a regular sized pad and a V2 regular sized. Probably 15 nights on each. No issues or leaks. I do take good care of them.

My friend has a cheap Amazon pad, also no issues yet. Possibly same weight and the material doesn't seem as durable.

I use a 2 pad solution. I have my 8yr old z rest as the base layer and throw a cheap inflatable over it. Sleep like a king. Inflatable lasts longer and when it fails not that big of a deal.

I've got their static V. Decent pad, I like my larger big Agnes pad but that takes too long to inflate. It's worked well in a regular tent as well as under inflated in a hammock.

You should always bring a patch kit on longer trips. And if leaving them at site in the daytime it's good to release the valve as the sun can really warm them up and expand the air in them.

There may be better ones than this, i just went with the cheapest. Pay attention to the dimensions because it may be more narrow than you'd like. I got it for my kids to use.
