REI Kids Self Inflating Pad
I got this pad because it is the right size for my 5′ 2″ body, It was $30.00 after a coupon we had ($40 originally) and it only weighs 19 oz! It is a good little pad and I love using it. I’ll probably get something like a NeoAir later when I’m worrying about shaving every ounce I can but for now between the weight and price it is a perfect little pad. It is only two inches shorter than I am and I tuck my knees up so I don’t even nottice those two inches. It is 2″ narrower than most pads but again I am small and really don’t notice. For only being an inch thick, I never did feel like I was uncomfortable at all. I actually was a bit more comfortable because it didn’t really bottom out at all.
It’s not the lightest pad or the best but it inflates well and is comfortable. Perfect starter pad for sure!
