While backpacking on the Inca Trail in 2014, we utilized the sleeping pad provided to us by our outfitter. While adequate for the 3-night trek in the Andes, it was heavy and bulky. In retrospect, I would have preferred to have carried my own sleeping pad and the Klymit Static V2 would have been my choice. I started backpacking in the early 1980s as a teenager, and over the years, I have used every possible option available to backpackers: closed cell foam (multiple brands and styles) and numerous self-inflating air mattresses (every length, width, thickness and weight).
The Static V2 packs down to approximately the size of a soda can, can inflate in as few as 10 breaths and weighs in at just over 1 pound.
The V shaped design features body mapping technology that helps insure a comfortable nights sleep regardless of how you sleep. The integrated side rails help keep you centered on the pad and inhibits air movement as you toss and turn during the night.
