" ...  This is my first time using a sleeping pad, so I can't compare it to other sleeping pads, but compared to just using a sleeping bag, it is a huge improvement.  ...  "

comment
" ...  The fabric is a bit slick so it’ll slide around, especially with similar materials.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I do not mind so much, but will probably need to fold the last two feet under and double it up at the end to fit this in a small tent.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The snaps along each side make folding it super easy -- you snap the sides together and that makes rolling it up, thereby removing the air from inside, easy and compacts it into something easily carried.  ...  "

comment
" ...  When you lay down on your back, it supports your full weight and is quite comfortable, but if you sit on it or sleep on your side, you might find yourself resting partly on the ground. ... I had a couple nights of good sleep on it, and the built-in pump and pillow are super convenient. ... Cons: Maybe not the best if you sleep on your side (but still pretty good)  ...  "
