Very comfortable with not even having to blow in anymore air. The only problem I’ve had in the year that I’ve owned it is some fraying of the ends of the fabric, but that can be easily snipped off and I haven’t had any other problems with the pad. Here comes a good night’s sleep after a long day’s trek.
Cons Not the lightest Small bit of fraying. This is rather a luxury to take camping, but the more I use it, the more I appreciate it. It came with two elastic straps, that seemed much too tight, so we never really used those. With the comfort series, the pad will inflate and deflate quickly with the jet stream wave foam and roll up compactly to fit into the stuff sack. First time inflating takes around 15 minutes, but after that the 3 minute set-up time is pretty accurate. It was a gift. My gear style is ‘simplistic and off clearance’ if there is such a category.
