Rated5out of5bydave the backpackerfromAir Rail Sleeping PadI bought this about 2 months ago. I have tried it out at home - very comfortable, but I have not used it out on the trail yet. I will give it a real work out this summer.

Rated2out of5byCappyfromWon't hold airI bought this for my camping trip and I loved it! It was comfortable, compact, easy to inflate. However, after a few hours of sleeping, it went flat. I blew it up again, but a few hours later it went flat. The next day, I inspected it for any punctures or leaks, but found none. I tried it one more night, but same issue, so I took it in for replacement. The replacement had the same issue. It would go flat after a few hours. Again, I inspected it for leaks, but none were found.
I am hoping to hear back from REI that they have found a bad batch of something. It really surprises me that two of these, from two different stores, had the same problem

Rated5out of5bybaileyhewesfromAwesomeThis thing is awesome. Prior to buying this I had a traditional roll-up foam sleep pad. I would constantly have to roll over from my right side, to my back, to my left side because my hips would get sore sleeping on my side and my butt would get sore on my back. Also from all that rolling over I would end up off of my pad on the rocky ground. I slept like a champ on this thing and never came off of it.
Sure, it isn't really self inflating but who cares. If you're willing to go sleep outside you probably don't care about putting a dozen puffs of air into your sleeping surface.

Rated5out of5byCornDOg013fromA solid pad!I have using this for 4 nights in a tent and was very happy with it. It didn't really 'self-inflate' but it didn't take much to get it ready to sleep on. I had some minor leaks in the tent but it never effected my sleep since the pad was good at not absorbing the water. At first I thought the 'wings' were silly but they really do help if you move in your sleep (i would always roll off my old mat and wake up on the hard ground).

Rated5out of5byZenExplorerfromSurprisingly comfortableI'm 6' and 260lbs and I found this pad to be very comfortable - both in the store and in camp (long/wide size). I spent a week camping in national forests and grasslands in Colorado and Arizona with this pad, and despite a late-November snowstorm I stayed warm and comfortable (I did have a foam pad below the AirRail. Never slipped off, and rotated to my side a few times. My sole criticism is that this pad isn't really self-inflating. That said, it only takes me a minute or two to inflate, so it's hardly an issue.
I also agree with one reviewer that said it would be better to pack it wide and thin than doubled-over in the included sack. I may look for a sack told hold it this way so it doesn't take up room in my pack.
All said - this was a great pad, especially for the price.

Rated5out of5byBrother JimfromVery Nice PadDidn't know if 1.5" would do the trick. At 220lb I was hesitant but the pad felt great at the store.
Last weekend camping at 28 degrees is gave plenty of support and insulation. Definitely a keeper, looking forward to the next backpacking trip.

Rated4out of5byRemembering Through NaturefromA great nights sleep...Admittedly, I have only used this self-inflating pad for one evening so I can not speak about its durability. Fortunately, the evening that I used it on provided a great opportunity to review the pads comfort level. I was able to use this pad in my Kelty Crestone 1 tent at 39 degrees F in rain and wind. I was completely comfortable and warm on the pad and found it comfortable to sleep on my back, sides and stomach. I am 5'5" and about 135 lbs, so that may play a factor in my level of comfort. I would recommend this pad to those who are more comfort oriented, b/c it does not pack down small nor will it be your lightest option. I was able to fit it into a 38L pack with the rest of my gear for a 1-2 night trip without a problem.
