I love this thingI used this on a trial four-night camping trip to Acadia and it was the best thing I packed. I also have a Thermarest self-inflating mat that I also love, but it isn't nearly as comfortable. I'm planning to pack my Nomad to Denali next summer and can't wait to make everyone jealous of how comfortable I'm sleeping. I think the small bit of extra weight (I barely noticed in my pack) is well worth the comfort of having six luxurious inches to sleep on. I'm surprised no one else has reviewed it yet, and I'm anxious to read what they write.

OBSESSEDDDD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I purchased this item a month ago and I have used it for 11 nights. Every night, I have inflated, deflated, and packed it. I plan on taking it with me overseas to use as my bed for 9 months.
I am one hundred percent in love with this mattress pad. It takes a lot for a product to make me satisfied but I can't stop talking about this one. I was camping with 300 people and this was a favorite for everyone.
For starters, its 6 inches!!!!! It is super nice. It feels like you brought a blow up bed with you. I was able to sleep through the night whether I was in a tent, cold room, cabin, or outside. The foot pump is easy to use and conveniently located inside of the mattress. When deflating, press down on the pump and it will get even smaller. Extremely easy to pack up. Smaller than the case it comes in. It is relatively lightweight. Great for backpacking despite what others may say. It is about the size of a nalgene. It fits perfectly at the bottom of a pack next to a compression sack for your sleeping bag. It makes a little noise when moving on it. It takes a couple min using the foot pump but its not bad. It is my favorite purchase of all time. I used a coupon so it was even cheaper but its worth the price.
I originally purchased a core air but there are rumors that they develop holes quickly. Therefore, I returned it to purchase this nemo. Nemo's are known to be very durable.
