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.
It's everything they claim it is! I have yet to test it in the field, but I did try it out at home. When my wife found me laying on it she asked; "What are you laying on?" I replied; "An inflatable camping pad" of which she responded; "Oh, well you'll have wasted all your money you're camping and get a hole in it!" Of which I replied; "No, this one has a backup chamber, just in case that happens, and it sleeps just fine on only one chamber!" She looked surprised and said "Oh"and left the room :) This pad is comfortable (even when laying on my side) and definitely thick enough for protruding roots and rocks, and so incredibly lightweight! I can't wait to sleep on it as I hike the Appalachian Trail this week! Great research and workmanship of a fine product guys!
I can't wait to use it! Looking forward to nights on the pad in the 2 man tent I also purchased from RAKAIA!!!
