Just got back from a camping and whitewater rafting trip in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. After a long day on the river and hiking, this was such a "welcome mat" for a great night's sleep. My husband's sleeping pad from REI was twice the price and he tried mine out and was really impressed. We couldn't tell the difference, except that my ALPS pad is a little wider and much longer! He's 6'3" and wanted to trade! Great product!
