Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warm and Comfy Packed Size: Packs down small enough for my purposes. Maybe a bit bigger than a Nalgene, but still a pretty good size. Comfort: Really comfortable. Slightly larger rails on the sides are nice, kept me from rolling off in the night. Warmth: Used it with a 20 degree rated bag and my base layers (meaning normally comfortable down to 35 or so) on a night when it got down to about 23 degrees. Was not cold, although the ground definitely was, so I'd say the insulation worked. Ease of inflation/deflation: I like the deflation valve, but inflating it was a little weird because of the way the inflation valve is set up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for me I purchased this sleeping pad about 10 months ago and while I haven't gone backpacking with it yet I have used it a number of times while traveling. Despite its size I am able to inflate it fairly quickly, and over a three-day hotel stay, sleeping on the floor, I did not have to reinflate it a single time. This pad gives me enough cushion that even concrete floors don't keep me from getting a good night's sleep. While the material might crinkle a bit I have not found it to be annoying or loud enough to keep me awake. Deflating and stowing the pad are simple, quick and straightforward.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light, Comfortable but deflating is a PAIN. I bought this to replace my therma-rest pad of ten years. The stratus is super comfortable, light weight, and has kept me warm. The only reason I cannot give this five stars is because it is literally a nightmare to completely deflate and fit back into its stuff sack. Something about how the chambers fill/unfill always gets air trapped. Ive used it about 6 times now and each time it has been a super hassle. I've tried rolling, folding...ive asked other people to do it and still...I have yet to find the solution. So, for now, im storing it outside of the sack. Thumbs up on everything else!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 6'5 320lbs It's always a gamble with things like this as to whether or not they'll be comfortable. This pad is awesome and all I need. It has over 2 inches of elevation and keeps me warm AND completely off the ground, even while sleeping on my side. There may be more expensive pads out there but I can't imagine any better pads exist for the weight. Very light. Also I opted for the long instead of the long and wide. The long alone had plenty of width and my shoulders fit the pad perfectly. Inflated in 10 breaths.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Slept like a baby! I bought this during the REI member sale a few months ago and finally got a chance to try it out this past weekend at the Enchantments. After long days and cold temps at night I was more than thankful to have this pad get me off the ground and I slept like a baby. Like any product after day two I had to put some more air in it but it held up great and fit in my pack with light weight!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very comfortable, but leaks I have purchased BA sleeping pads and noticed that they start to leak at around the 1 yr mark. This happened with about 4 sleeping pads. I purchased this one thinking it would be more durable. It is very comfortable but one has already started to leak at almost 1 yr. I'm slowly moving over to the Therm-a-rest sleeping pads.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does a Great Job! Love this pad - blows up easily and rolls up into a very small, convenient size. Has enough thickness (for me at least) to sleep on my side without my hip touching the ground. The r-value isn't that high (I think 2.9 or so) but if you're using this thing in cool to moderate climates you should be fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes sleeping easy I bought it for summer camp with the boyscouts. I pumped it up on Sunday when we got to camp. By Saturday when we left i never had to reinflate the mattress again. I am very pleased with this product

What is the best way to clean it?

Asked by: Leah
This pad can be hand washed with a wet and soapy cloth. A mild detergent or Nathan Sport-Wash Laundry Detergent can be used. Make sure to keep water out of the valves.

What is the recommended method for deflating this mattress? Roll it? Fold it? Stuff it? Also, is there any reason why blowing it up with your lungs wouldn't work just as well as the pump?

Asked by: waterwater
The Stratus Insulated Air Sleeping Pad can be folded in thirds and rolled toward the valve to deflate. Inflating with your lungs works just fine.

I bought a Stratus pad in 2013. It worked fine but now the valve leaks. Is there a way to fix it. I was told on the phone that there was a repair kit that might work.

Asked by: goetz305
Unfortunately there is no way to repair the valve on the Stratus Insulated Air Sleeping Pad.

You do not have to purchase the pump for the Stratus Insulated Air Sleeping Pad, you are welcome to use your lungs.
