The pad was very comfortable and every bit of 4" thick throughout its entirety. It is a lot of padding though and requires a bit of effort to roll the air back out of it. Definitely roll once to get most of the air out then seal it up and unroll and roll again to get more air out. Also, it is too big and heavy to take on a hike-in camping trip. But if you want comfort and are 6' 180 lbs. like me, it definitely fits the bill. I also ordered the Alpinizmo by High Peak USA Minto 4" Thick Full-length Inflatable Sleeping Pad but it was not as comfortable. It was both narrower and thinner especially near the edges. But it would be easier to hike with.

Basically, this thing broke the first day I used it. The seam between the green felt like material and grey plastic bottom material gave out. There is now about a 2 inch rip in the mattress where the two material meet. Also, the interior foam is not attached to the outer material, causing it to bunch up. I've used other, more expensive, self inflating mattress without any of these issues. It's a shame, for the price, it was promising.
On a flat surface, this little self-inflating mattress performs as advertised. But if you were thinking of using it with the Kamp Rite Cot, as some of the literature seems to suggest -- think again. It does not work. The pad is designed for use on a flat surface. The Kwik Cot fabric support has a pronounced dip. Using the Kamp Rite pad on the cot will not only create a weird, hot mattressy bubble around the sleeper, it will also ruin the pad.
