Comfort for the ground or Air

with this amazing air pad i have comfort whether I'm in my hammock or roughing it on the ground, the air pad provides most ample support and warmth...
Just got back from a backpacking trip with this. It held air. I am a side sleeper and it was comfortable, yay! Light and compact yet strong. Perfect!
The Air Pad XL was comfortable, supported side sleeping and most importantly, stayed inflated the entire time! A high quality product.
Air Pad XL Benefits
Full Size Comfort
This isn't a small skimpy pad - this is full size and thick. Some camping pads are so small that they're easy to roll off of, not this pad. You'll have room to stretch out and switch to your side, no problem.
Air Pad XL Benefits
It might surprise you how small this full size pad packs down. When packed away it's smaller than a nalgene, because there's nothing worse than a pad dangling off of the outside of your pack because it's just too big.
Grommet + elastic loop for helping attach your pad to various items, like your hammock, or a second pad.
Full Size Comfort
Each tube flexes to conform to your body and the full size design keeps you comfy however you sleep.
Fast release valve and one way inflation valve.

The air pad was so comfortable! The campsite was packed down as hard as concrete and still slept soundly. :) It was easy to air up and to deflate. Packs down so small and light!
Hope to camp more now!

I'm the bad luck charm of sleeping pads and have the intense fear of being the last person to pack up my gear before we are on our way. After the bulky sleep pad leaked on the first day of a 5 day raft trip I went down the research rabbit hole for something that may survive my bad luck and keep me from being the dead weight of the trip.
I sprung for the Air Pad XL and am so happy! I compared it to everything I saw on REI and "best sleep pad" lists google showed me it won my heart for having the following:
- Great R value by far at 5.2 (I didn't know what this was but was super happy to find out it is the "how well does this insulate you from cold surfaces")
- Great reviews by people with bad backs
- Large surface area with a small pack up size (It fits my 5'9" self with my feet pointed out and arms over my head and under the pillow, and my 6'4" compatriot lay on it and fit! Holy smokes!)
- Better price than everything except the stuff showing up on Amazon with a tons of high leak reviews
- Loops to hook into my hammock tent
- Double inflation method so you don't have to frantically blow in and get lightheaded (Also comes with a non-electric pump system that works well but won't work on other pads)
- Thick enough to have leeway to find the perfect resistance without your gut or butt feeling the ground. 3+" too firm? Deflate to about 2.5ish and have a little more adjustment for any curves you have!
Full disclosure I've only tested it out in the house but I kept choosing to lie down on it instead of the couch right next to it. I will update after the camping usage.
It may be a bit tight if you are trying to share a small tent with someone else and it is a bit noisy but I don't think it will be a problem especially when I'm on it in my Puffle.
If you have a Puffle they do have videos on how to wrap one of those around it for extra insulation.
I already own 2 Puffles and have really loved the quality and warmth so was willing to spring for the Air Pad XL in addition to the Hot Pocket and two of the pillows. I'm already eyeing the Ember Jacket for a Memorial Day (crossing fingers) Sale purchase and am gearing up for a cozy camp summer and fall.

I started regularly camping with my scout during covid and really struggled with sleep loss. As a side sleeper, mats would make my hips hurt and I constantly woke up all night and would just lie awake waiting for morning. This was a game changer. I always avoided blow up pads as I didn’t want the hassle but this one is a cinch (also bought a mini battery power inflater). Now I can roll on side and be comfortable, no crinkly sounds and sleep deep enough to dream. Still wake up if the coyotes howl but can fall right back to sleep. Love this and back on the site for the trekking poles!
