Light, plush and warm, the 3 in. thick REI Co-op Helix Insulated air pad will make you happy twice every trip—first when you carry it on your back and again when you hit it at bedtime.

  • Features

    • 3 in. thickness and an even, gridded weld pattern gives you a flat, mattresslike surface thick enough to keep you from touching the ground
    • Dual reflective layer insulation technology gives you a warm night's sleep without adding weight to the pad
    • Dual custom valves make inflation and deflation quick and easy, and work seamlessly with the included pump sack
    • Interior baffle design and weld shape reduce internal stresses, which improves pad durability and longevity
    • Softly tapered shape provides maximum sleeping surface while fitting easily in trapezoidal tents;
    • Regular size tapers to approximately 14 in. wide at footbox; wide size tapers to approximately 17 in. wide at footbox
    • This pad has an R-value of 4.9, which makes it best for adventures in cold weather; it provides considerable insulation from ground temperature
    • Also a good choice for those who just prefer a warm night's sleep no matter what
    • Most sleeping pads we sell range from 1.0 (good for warm weather) to 5.5+ (for use in extreme cold); the higher the R-value, the more insulated the pad
    • Made with 30-denier ripstop polyester with TPU lamination; included pump sack is made of 30-denier ripstop nylon with a PU coating
    • Includes inflation pump sack, field repair kit and stuff sack
