Review Pros :
Good size pad for individuals up to 6ft tall.
Great quality – no issues with leaking.
Very good price – affordable for the size
Overall good size
Easy to inflate – good valve
Comfortable to use – can sleep on it any way that you like including side with nothing touching the ground.
Not very loud when moving around on it.
When packed, it doesn’t take up a lot of room inside of your pack.
Lifetime warranty! That means a lot especially when it comes to a product of this type.
Larger air chambers on the sides to hold the user in the center of the pad

Point : No inflation bag is included – this isn’t really a con considering the price but should be mentioned.

Now onto the real cons….

Review Cons :

Because of the size of the pad, it can and will take time to inflate the pad via your lungs.

Ugly blue color – it’s more of a baby blue would prefer additional color options or at least a darker blue.

Pad is slightly slick due to the materials; you might want to consider an anti-slip solution such as seamgrip.

No repair kit included

There isn’t an XXL pad for taller and wider individuals

R-Value :
Speaking of the R-value, Teton Sports isn’t forthcoming about this information on their website; you can only find these details on the Amazon page which I flat out do not like.

The insulated version of this pad isn’t all that insulated. It is rated only for a 2.7 which is fairly low.

Maybe they don’t state the R-value because 2.7 is so low that one won’t likely even notice it. 2.7 is generally recommended for cool, above freezing conditions.

Summer r-values run between 1 – 3
Fall and early spring 3 – 5
Winter 5+

Summary :

All in all, this is not a bad sleeping pad for the money; it’s a good size, offers excellent cushion, the quality is good and it features a lifetime warranty!

For this price, there aren’t many companies that do.

Over the last year or so, I have been very impressed with Teton Sports; very good quality products for the money.
