Klymit Sleeping Pads - Review

Postby John Harper » Thu May 21, 2015 12:08 pm

Has anyone tried these. Looks to weigh only about 20 ounces (my current Thermarest Trail is about 32 ounces) for only $95.
Similar to BA IAC and Thermarest Xlite?

Also, it's 23 inches wide, versus 20" for the other pads.

Well, going to try out the Insulated Static V Lite, used some Amazon points and it's only costing $41. Review of Static V was good, thanks Maverick. Like the extra 3" width for sure.

With all the rain in Texas, it probably makes a good floaty too! Thanks for the input.

Well, it arrived on Friday. Very nice quality, easy to inflate too. I've had it filled for over three days now and now signs of leakage. Very comfortable too.

Just got back from three nights up at Cottowood Lakes. Had to endure a 12 hour heavy rainstorm/lightning storm huddled inside my bivy and covered with a 5 x 7 tarp.

This pad is awesome!!!! I have never been so comfortable, and as a side sleeper, never felt the ground under me. I even caught a few winks during the worst of the storm. You could feel the pad firm up as it warmed from body heat. Very impressive!!!

Super easy to inflate (even at 11,000 feet!) with only a few breaths. Kept me warm and comfortable the whole time. Highly recommend them.

Thanks for the review! I'm in the market for a pad (just noticed the valve cracked on my current one) and will have to give this one a look.
