What is good about this sleeping pad

Great comfort – keeps you off the hard ground and all those bumps and rocks. Another benefit of adding an air pad is that it will help keep you warmer.

Self inflate quickly – no pump required, just open the valve and it straightens out. When finished it deflates quickly and it can be rolled up compactly and placed in the stuff sack.

Made of tough fabric – although it is lightweight, the top fabric is tough non-slip Ripstop and the bottom is made of durable polyester taffeta. Also features non-corrosive Brass Valves.

What customers say about the ALPS Mountaineering Lightweight Series Self Inflating Air Pad

There were lots of reviews for this sleeping pad. Numerous reviewers commented on how comfortable it is, how they don’t touch the ground whether sleeping on their back or on their side. One reviewer remarked that he is, “a 350lb backpacker and I never touch ground with the support his pad offers.”

Many reviewers talked about the quality of the construction, although it is light, it is thicker and better built. It’s easy to use and light to carry. This reviewer said, “after sleeping on the straight ground for many years as a minimalist, this is luxury.”

Also reviewers said it self inflates easily and rolls back up to a small tight cylinder.  A lot of reviewers felt this sleeping pad was of higher quality than the therma rest.

There were no major issues but a few reviewers said it does tend to slide on the tent floor a bit, but a plain sleeping bag does that too. A couple of reviewers thought it was a bit long when rolled up, it sticks further than the width of most backpacks if strapped under the pack. So one backpacker put his inside the pack and strap the sleeping bag under his pack instead.

DR Brown says:

It inflates easily, but it’s little more challenging to remove all … I have slept very well on this pad in a variety of places. It inflates easily, but it’s little more challenging to remove all the air so that it will fit back into it’s stuff sack. However, I don’t find it to be a big deal, especially since it make sleeping so much more comfortable than with my old foam pad!
