Default Re: What wuss would use one of these

I own three. I bought the original one for backpacking and snow camping. It totally insulates you from the snow, which tends to suck the heat out of the bottom of the sleeping bag. You can actually blow more air into the pad to increass the loft slightly. So it may not be a wuss that uses it, but an idiot like me, that actually goes camping in the snow.

Well, I gotta admit, back in the days when I used to go camping and backpacking, I sure as hell used a matress pad. I used 1" foam pads all the way up to the super dooper thermarest 3" pads. They were bulky and a pain to carry but oh so nice to lay on.

These days, I must admit that roughing it means staying at Motel 6.

My son, who still goes camping with the grandkids says he has a new pad that is something like an airbed with down filling. He says it is the most comfortable thing he has ever slept on. Almost as good as his Tempurpedic matress at home.

If these things are anything like the crappy air mattresses I know I would wake up on the ground anyway with my 235 pd frame so why waste the money.
