I LOVE camping - but I am a side sleeper, and sometimes the hard ground makes it difficult to get comfortable. I have tried many different sleeping pads with varying degrees of success. An inflatable air mattress was awesome - until it deflated. Also, it was very bulky to transport in my kayak. I tried a Thermarest and it was great, but again I had the problem of size. I stumbled on the Klymit Static V, and have been using it for six months now and am a HUGE fan! No leaks, super comfortable, and packs up tiny!
