Another quality product by Rakaia! I was pleased with the material and dual chamber design for emergency leak mitigation. I was able to easily fill it with about a dozen breaths and found the air pocket layout very comfortable on the wood floor. I’m certain it will be a great addition to our backpacking kit.
I purchased a Klymit Static V from my son who's a Boy Scout. He loved it until he had to deflate it and pack it away for the first time. He ended up giving it to his sister who's having the same issues. I bought this pad to test out as a replacement for both of them, and ways surprised how long it was! I'm 6'6" and it's plenty long for me to. It's easy to inflate and deflate.
Decided to do a destructive test on the pad to see if the opposite side held air, passed with flying colors. Completely trashed the black side of the pad leaving the blue side untouched. Went at it pretty hard to see if there was any leakage between the two sides. Passed with flying colors. Each side is essentially it's own sleeping pad, so if you puncture one side, you can flip it and be sleeping again in minutes vs having to try and patch a pad in the dark. Weight with everything in the delivery was at 576g, which included the paperwork, the included patch patches, stuff sack and elastic band.
Per card attached to pad that to save paper pad instructions would be emailed to me. I've looked and found nothing. Only recieved requests for personal information and surveys. Maybe I missed them but I could not find them.
I was amazed by the comfort of such a lightweight and slim air mattress. I wish we had this when I was a scout leader and we just had "foam pads"to use !
