Wonderful sleeping pad
Wonderful sleeping pad. Very sturdy and comfortable. Inflates quickly, small pillow part makes it more comfortable for sleeping, just like in your own bed). The color slightly differs from the picture.Quality is good.

Great mat if you can hang on
This sleeping mat is comfortable and does a great job at keeping you insulated from the cold hard ground. It rolls up into a pretty small cylinder and comes with its own sack which is actually a little over sized to make getting it back in a cinch. The self inflating feature works great and you can add blow in more air if you need it firmer. Doesnt weigh much and seems like it would be durable. The only minor issue is it has a somewhat slippery material you lay on and with most sleeping bags also being pretty slippery, finding yourself off the mat is pretty easy. Otherwise great.

Awesome little camping mat.
Highly recommend. Very comfortable. Only part that is super annoying is trying to roll them up. They do not fit well in the compression bag that they come with. I still can't get them back in, because they keep reinflating. I wish they would do what the tent companies do and add a zipper with additional space for later after you use the mat. A compression bag you can unzip and that extends the space after you use it. If they create this I would love to just get the newer compression bag. Again I love this mat and so does my family. We bought 3. They are so comfy and quick to inflate.

Warm and so comfy
Took three of these on our high country, early fall elk hunt. We have mesh outfitter cots and got very cold last year so we purchased these after reading all of the reviews. What a huge difference these made! We slept snug and warm despite the freezing nighttime temps and more comfortably as well. I'm a side sleeper and have had trouble sleeping on cots due to hip pain, but slept much better with these sleeping pads. My husband is 6'2" and 195 lbs, he was impressed as well. Thank you for making our pack trips so much more pleasant!

Comfortable but Hard to Deflate
So comfortable. I slept really well on this. It's pretty firm but plushy. Only downside is, while it's very easy to inflate (just need to open the air valves), it's hard for me to deflate. The air inflating is very powerful, and for every bit of air I manage to squeeze out, a good bit will come back in once I shift my body weight. Finally I got someone else to help me, using both of our knees to push out the air as we slowly roll up the pad.
Also, might not be so convenient if you're planning to take this to backpacking. It's a little bulky, and quite wide.

So far, so great.
I am currently (and have been) sleeping on an air pad every night. I had previously used one that was about $15 cheaper than this pad and while it was comfortable, they consistently developed leaks after two months or so. So this time I decided it was worth it to pay a little more as I have read a lot of reviews and haven't heard anyone complain of leaks on the pad. I have the middle size - 2" thick. First of all, the pad just looks more well constructed out of the box than the old one. Also I quickly realized that while the dimensions listed are exactly the same as the old pad, this one is considerably larger. I really like it because my feet don't hang off the end and I don't feel like I'm about to fall of the side like with the more narrow pad. When lying and moving around on the pad, it simply feels more solid and more well constructed than the one I used previously. Comfort-wise it is about the same. I plan to check back on this review in two or three months to give a report and how it holds up, i.e., leaking or not. Based on what I've experienced so far, I don't expect this pad to leak like the others ones I've purchased.
So it's been about 8 weeks since I purchased this pad and I'm still super pleased with it. With sleeping nightly on other pads, I was usually having to add air at least once in the night at this point, or even more. With this pad, I don't remember ever adding any air since I initially filled it. It is very well constructed. I'm thrilled with this pad!

This pad the most comfortable solution to sleeping in the great outdoors I've ever ...
This pad the most comfortable solution to sleeping in the great outdoors I've ever found. I've tried air mattresses (too "bouncy", bottom out when I sleep on my side), huge rolls of memory foam (comfortable, but took up WAY too much room in my little Subaru on camping trips), and even a collapsible cot! (took up almost no room in my car, but was very restrictive and I couldn't move or turn over... a little like what I imagine sleeping in a coffin would be like!)
This mat is PERFECT! It is about 3 inches thick once it fully self-inflates (no huffing and puffing!) and, because it has a core of foam it doesn't go completely flat even if you forget to close the air valve. (I assume this would also mean that in a pinch if it got a hole in it, you would not be miserable until you could get it repaired .) I am 5'8" and can lay on this with room to spare. I also weigh 190 lbs, and I am able to kneel on this without "bottoming out" and feeling the hard ground on my knees.
Putting this thing "away" was the most challenging part of the experience for me. You basically have to open the valve and start slowly rolling it up. I found that by kneeling on the roll that I was creating, it squeezed out more air. Once you get it all rolled up, close the valve and then unroll it again. Then start re-rolling it as tightly as you can (with the valve closed!). Once I squeezed the remaining air into the last foot or so, I opened the valve a tiny bit and finished rolling the last bit before quickly closing the valve again.
Packed away in it's handy carrying bag, it's about the same size as your average folding camp chair.

Great pad, perfect for my wife
Great pad, perfect for my wife, who usually like an air mattress. I like the pillow notch at the end; I still need a true pillow, but the extra incline is appreciated. Price was reasonable.

Very comfortable when laying on my back
This is a very comfy air mat. I'm giving this 4 stars only because I haven't slept on it yet since we won't camp until next year; but I did lay on this our wood floor for a while to get a feel for it. Very comfortable when laying on my back, and reasonably well padded for laying on my side. Looking forward to using this in our tent.

The Real Deal
My son loves his new pad. At 250 lbs most sleeping pads don't keep him up off the ground or help him keep warm. This pad actually does what it claims. The pad inflates and deflates easily fitting nicely back into the storage sack.
