Rated 5 out of 5 by from one of the best I slept on this pad for a week straight and had no issues with it. At only 2.5 inches thick it worked just as well as pads that were 3.5 inches thick and i'm a side sleeper. Having a top and bottom air chamber means you can adjust it to your comfort level and the type of ground you are laying on, also if one side punctures your not stuck sleeping directly on the ground. The durability of the pad is excellent as i brought my puppy with me and he didn't leave a mark on it but he also didn't chew on it at all so it passed the puppy paws test. I didn't use this in any cold situation so i can't really attest to the insulation of the product but it still earns 5 out of 5

Rated 4 out of 5 by from close to home mattress I have had a Nxx Axx pad for several years, but I find it narrow since I am a side sleeper. I got the rectangular pad, but that was way too long for even my large tent. I have used this at home on the floor. It is not as quiet as my self inflating pads, but it is quieter than my Nxx-Axx. It was easy to inflate, and very easy to deflate with the double valve. I took one star off because there are lighter alternatives. It doesn't feel as high as the Nxx-Axx, but that is good in case an errant leg or arm comes off the pad. It is easy to roll and fit back into the included case. It is nice that it comes with a repair kit,, too. This pad will be my choice (I have >4 pads) unless I want to go ultralight.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's just okay for the money I really want to like the product. The best thing it has going for it is that it only takes one minute to air it up. I can literally use my Sea to Summit dry sack with the connection nozzle and it will be aired up in less than a minute. The downside is it loses air by the morning. Secondly, it's thin compared to my other sleeping pads. I weigh approximately 190 and I'm almost six feet tall. By the morning, my hips are on the ground and it's a little uncomfortable. I will probably have to invest in a sleeping mat for some added comfort and support. I might just take it back and try something else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sea to Summit knows how to make sleeping pads I've never had a better nights sleep while camping. I'm 6'0, 190lbs, and a side sleeper and this pad feels amazing. I was sold on Sea to Summit pads after reading numerous reviews, but I wanted to be sure about exactly which pad would work best for me. I inflated four different options at my local REI and tested them all out in store. The comfort plus insulated and the ultralight insulated really stood out. I bought both (wife sleeps on the comfort plus most of the time). No regrets about the cost, worth the investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warmth + Perfect Size I used this pad on a recent trip that got much colder than anticipated. My sleeping bag wasn't rated for the temps (20-30F). The only side of my body that was warm when I was sleeping was the side against this ground pad. It compacts into about 40% the size of a comparable Thermarest (which I replaced, never going back). Additionally, it is incredibly comfortable. The air distributed perfectly under my body. I blew it up about 90% because I like it a little softer, and at no point did anywhere on my body come into contact with the ground. I would sleep on this every day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from best pad I've used I wanted a replacement for my Thermarest Prolite Plus I had been using for years. Based on research I went with the Big Agnes Q-Core SL. Loved this in the sleeve of my Big Agnes bag, but could not stay on it without the sleeve. I have multiple bags and this pad was just too slippery and noisy climbing back on it. I gave it a year and finally admitted I made a mistake. Love Big Agnes, just not the pad. Obviously made with the BA bag sleeve in mind. Next I thought I would try Therarest NeoAir Xlite, but Backpacker magazine had the Sea To Summit as a 2015 top pick. Unfortunately REI only has the Therearest in the stores. When I went to the store to look at it, the Therarest is really loud like crinkling paper. just not a good fit with an air pillow and me tossing around all night. With REI's generous return policy I bought the Sea to Summit on line. Because I camp all year, I went with the insulated pad. It did not get 5 stars here because of the weight and the packing size. I am torn on the packing size because it is wider the the Q-core which is a plus. Honestly I dont know if the 5 star pad exists. This does make noise but is the quietest of the three and i didnt notice it all night. I took the pad for a weekend on the Appalachian Trail. It was wet and the temperatures were in the 40's. The pad was incredibly. I am typically not a first night sleeper, but it was so comfortable, I slept hard enough to feel well rested. I never felt the ground, never rolled off, never found the edge and never felt any cold coming from under me. I would highly recommend this pad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How'd they do that? This pad is by far the most comfortable air pad I have ever slept on. I bought this pad based on the Backpacking magazine review and they are absolutely correct about the benefits to separate top and bottom air chambers. Fill the bottom chamber to get you off the ground and eliminate pressure points. Fill the top chamber for comfort. I always hated air pads because pressure in one area of the pad resulted in bloating in another. I am 6'3", 225 and a side sleeper. When sleeping on my side, typically the pressure of my hips into the pad would give the sensation of the pad pushing up on my chest, tweaking my spine. Push anywhere on this pad and there is no change in the support in other areas. It really does work like an individual coil mattress...just nice, firm, even support from head to toe. How'd they do that??? Other reviewers dinged it by one star due to the weight but I am willing to sacrifice weight in other areas for the luxury this pad affords.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Specs don't do it justice....priceless! I bought this sleep mat for my husband a few months ago. His first time using it to camp was not simply a summer overnight. We camped in the snow and ice at the Boy Scouts Klondike Derby in mid January with night time lows of low 20s into the upper teens. We were camping on the snow. He uses his military grade sleep system with this sleep mat. The mat went between the green bag and the black bag with a gortex bag on the outside. Not only did he not notice it was cold out but when it rained and then plowed us with snow over night our tent collapsed on top of us, he slept through the storm and I had to tell him about it the next morning. Mind you he has numerous injuries including a spinal cord injury with hardware and his back wasn't sore or stiff the next morning either. Him being a severely injured combat veteran all he has wanted to do is be outside and in the wilderness like he did before he was injured. This sleep mat has given him another reason to get out and enjoy camping regardless of the terrain or climate. That to me is priceless.

with this pad do you need to purchase a pump with it or can it be inflated by mouth and how much effort is it to inflate by mouth?

Asked by: mlfitch
A pump is not required to inflate the Comfort Plus Insulated Sleeping Pad. It can be inflated manually. The pad is 2.5 inches thick and should be fairly easy to inflate manually. Sea to Summit also makes a pump that doubles as a stuff sack that makes inflating the pad easier.

What is the "plus" for? Comfort light specs looks the same except r value.

Asked by: Coppertonamlone
The difference is in the overall weight. The Comfort Plus in a regular weighs 1 lb. 9.5 oz. The Comfort Light in regular weighs 1 lb. 4.5 oz. The Plus also has a slightly higher R-value.
