- Winter camping Review by Pete
I spent a night last weekend at about 7, ooo feet. It was March 23rd but nobody told mother nature that. A spring storm came through Utah this last weekend and when I got up in the morning there was maybe three inches of new snow on the tent I was in. That on top of the ice and snow that was already on the ground. I estimate that the temperature dipped to the mid to high teens where we were. I used the Klymit insulated Static V sleeping pad that night and a North Face sleeping bag (that 15 years ago when I bought the bag was rated to 20 degrees...I wouldn't consider it a '20 degree' bag anymore.)
The static V was super comfortable. It was wide enough that I could move around on it a bit in my mummy bag. I like that it has a rectangle cut and it was wide enough that I could curl up during the night bringing my knees toward my chest and not worry about sliding off the pad. I love how thick the Static V is. I was comfortable not only on my back when my hips could sink into the pad but also while laying on my side when both my hips and shoulders had great support but were still accomodated.
The insulated Static V kept me warm, comforable and cozy and I was impressed with how easily and quickly it could be inflated. (Posted on 3/24/13)
- A Comfortable Winter Pad Review by Mr. Rogers
I have used this pad a total of 6 nights in the NH and Vermont area at elevations of ~2500 ft. It was the winter season (Jan, Feb and March specifically) and temps have ranged from 25F to -5F.
As far as warmth is concerned, I would not go much lower than -5F, especially on snow. With a closed cell foam pad underneath you may be able to squeeze out a couple more degrees, but anything really cold would require a bag rated lower than the night time low.
I sleep in a variety of positions, and this mat has not given me a single sore spot like normal thermarest self-inflating pads have in the past. It is quite comfortable and can inflate very firm (my preference) under normal lung pressure. I am not positive if the design actually adds to the insulation value of your sleeping bag, but it has worked well in the conditions I have put it through.
Size and weight wise, I normally pack multiple pads (closed cell foam roll and a thermarest self inflating). This is extremely small, and much lighter. I can easily toss this in my main compartment of the pack (Kelty Coyote Classic 3850) rather than using the bottom straps.
I have not tested the repair kit but it looks like it would be adequate for any small puncture.
NOTE: When camping with this pad in cold temperatures, it is best to inflate it fully and let the air from your breath cool. When you are planning on going to sleep, inflate to desired pressure, as the air inside has undoubtably cooled and noticeably deflated the pad. I learned this the hard way by camping on snow after inflating it right before bed, and woke up with a significantly less inflated pad. (Posted on 3/24/13)
