I finally am going to write about my Nube. I’ve had it for a couple years now and am finally able to fine tune it. I usually leave the bottom a floor for my dog to sleep in. The everything in one and not having to carry a separate tarp. Set up is easy.. I keep finding more neat things about it!
Really enjoyed this blanket. Used it car camping coming home from a bike race. Was able to keep warm during a cool overnight in the Sierras.
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 love this new meal from Peak. I have found that Stonegate even at home I will grab one of these and make it for dinner. Yes I still eat them camping but I find them filling. Keep up the good meals
Just getting into Bike Packing. Did lots of research and decided a blanket was worth trying. Puffle was the best value and after testing it out with my new pad with a sheet, I love it.
I love this. A lot better than expected. And I love how it helps the pillow and they are separate so you don’t have to pack it if space is an issue.
Went on a spring camping weekend and it was the perfect thing to bring. I didn’t get the color I wanted as they were out of stock but it’s still a great purchase
I was intrigued by the puffle concept. I do a fair amount of camping, although most of it is more glamping than old-school camping. I detest conventional sleeping bags because they are constricting and the enormous zippers are always positioned in exactly the wrong place. I haven’t spent a night in a tent yet with the puffle, but I tried it out at home and it seems exactly as marketed- lightweight, warm and comfortable. I like how small it packs down. I plan to re-review the puffle after I have used it in the wild.
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.
Had my doubts about how warm this thing actually was and boy was I wrong. I even started getting hot inside. Perfect blanket for cold nights in the house or camping. Very happy with it.
For not being anything like my Amok, this Pares hammock lies extremely flat or, at the least, super comfortable for a side chill. It is, by far, my FAVORITE hammock of the 11 I own. Hands down, changed the game. It's HUGE! Potentially pair the precious Pares with some priceless Puffles and I'm set to pass out comfy in almost any conditions. (yes, I worded that on purpose) I'll include a video, please forgive my language at the end; I was so thrilled, lol.
We took the puffle on our kayaking trip. It compacts nicely and was plenty warm.
This hammock is a game changer. I had the Ninox Fly for a bit before I got the double-layer hammock. it is soft, strong, and huge. Took it to Silver Falls this last weekend and there was heavy rain. was no problem.
Soft, light, warm and versatile- just used it while camping in my aunts living room so far, but it was perfect.
Great tasting. Already bought more just to have extra on hand.
