Flash 3-Season insulated air pad - compatible with Therm-a-rest chair?

Dear REI,

Just purchased the Flash 3-Season insulated air pad from REI. I have a Therma-Rest "seat" that their air pad and foam pads fit into. I have been able to use the Flash 3-Season insulated air pad for the "seat" also but have concerns that this may damage the pad because of the segmented air pockets.

Any thoughts?

@DrDan this is a good (and hard) question! There's not really anything that indicates using a Flash air pad with the Therm-a-Rest Trekker Chair won't work or will cause damage to the pad, although your hesitation is certainly understandable as the Flash pad has so many more distinct air pockets than the Therm-a-Rest pads. We're going to move your question out to the general community in the hopes that someone else out there has tried it and has feedback!
