Klymit Static V Luxe Sleeping Pad - Awesome extra wide pad (1 Viewer)

Aug 22, 2011
Westernville, NY
I just bought this:
It's 30" wide and it came in the mail today; it's got to be the most comfortable pad I've ever owned. It's more comfortable than a regular bed. Weighing in at 1lb 12oz, it's hefty, but it packs down small, and seems to be worth the weight.

I've been skeptical of air pads for years. One ember flies onto it, and you're done. I'm worried about durability and will follow up in a few months regarding its sturdiness.

And I've always used a z-lite closed cell foam pad out of a die-hard commitment to ultralight gear, but after too many cold nights and too much back pain, my years on the z-lite were over. I'm hoping this will be just the right pad to keep me warm and comfortable.

It's 30" wide, so if you're a bigger human worried about rolling off narrow pads, this one will do the trick. Most pads I've slept on, I roll off from easily. I also tend to sleep on my side or stomach, with my leg all jacked up, and this pad can handle that position. Probably could sleep two in a pinch.
30" is WIDE:


All in all happy with my purchase, but we'll see how it withstands the test.

If you want to buy this as well, check out Klymit's ebay account, where factory seconds that have been refurbished are sold for $70. Shipped to me in 48 hours (from UT to NY!!!).

    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.

    $60.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $60.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $60.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
