Can't recommend enough Review by Quincy
Let me start off by saying that I'm approximately 6'5" and 400lbs and I have plenty of bad blood with air mattresses. I have been able to sleep comfortably on this little mat on my back, belly and sides and never touched the ground. I don't know how they do it, but I'm impressed. It folds up to a little bit bigger than a 12oz soda can and weighs about the same too. So for packable weight and size it can't be beat. The material is impressively rugged too, as I slept on it with my keys jabbing into it and no issues. I really cannot recommend this mat enough. I guess all there is left to say is buy one and see for yourself. And at about 1/2 the cost of an equivalent mat that's not so painful to do. (Posted on 12/2/-1)
Awesome for the price Review by Jill
I just got my Klymit STATIC V Ultralight Camping Sleeping Pad (72" x 23") in the mail last week and immediately hit the trail. I have used a variety of pads over the years but always resisted spending money on a thermarest or other high priced pad. Then I came across this one after some uncomfortable nights in the Smokies. The specs are comparable to the popular inflatables on the market these days, but the price is way better!

It's by far the most comfortable pad I've used. I'm a side sleeper and have always gotten sore using other mats. My first two nights on this one were perfect. I'm a 5'8, 170lb woman and it supported me easily. It takes 15-20 breaths to blow up. (As others have said, your breath is hot so the pad will flatten a bit after the air cools, just add another breath before you hit the hay and it stays firm all night.)

The vent is really easy to use. It's very easy to blow in to, no resistance. And it releases air very quickly when you're breaking camp. Fold it length-wise into quarters, roll it and you're ready to go. It rolls to the size of a fat Nalgene bottle, comes with a stuff sack that's easy to get it in to and has a patch kit.

Impressive Review by Kermit
Before purchasing this sleeping pad, I had bought two other cheap self-inflating pads: an Ozark Trail and a Coleman (both from Walmart). I was very unhappy with those, the Ozark trail was uncomfortable, and the Coleman stopped holding air after only 1 or 2 nights. Both were big, bulky, and heavy.

This one is a completely different story. It's tiny, like the size of a 1 liter Nalgene bottle (and probably about the weight of a half-full 1 liter Nalgene). It's easily 1/8 the size of the self-inflatable pads I tried (or smaller). When you roll it back up, it's not hard to get it nice and small and back into the carrying pouch. In fact, the pouch could probably even be smaller than the one provided, but it's nice not having to worry about packing it super tightly.

Inflated, it's more comfortable than either the Ozark Trail or the Coleman that I had before. I'm about 5'10" and 165lbs, and (unlike on the either sleeping pads) the pressure points (butt, shoulders, legs) weren't pushing through to the ground. I was actually able to let a little air out to make it less firm, and still none of those pressure points were on the ground.

Now, I was just trying it out in my living room, so I haven't actually tried it on the trail yet. Durability is yet to be seen. But, the materials seem to be good quality and it appears to be well made. The seams all around the outside at least an inch wide, so I don't think they'll be coming apart.

Summary: this is absolutely tiny, and is pretty comfortable. I really don't see any benefit in a self-inflating pad which is much larger. This only takes a couple more breaths to blow up anyway. (Posted on 12/2/-1)
Wish I would have bought sooner Review by Jerald
I was truly hesitant to spend 70 dollars on a sleeping pad. Now after purchasing my only complaint is I wish I had done it sooner. This is the most comfortable sleeping pad I have had. Ive had alot. I live in Oregon and spend as much time in the mountains as I can get away with. Camping, backpacking, I have used this in my hammock, on the ground, and with my cot. I really love it. Alot.

Very Comfortable Review by Stuart
I find the Klymit to be very comfortable; it appears to be well-made, and the inflation valve works well. The wrapper declares that it inflates with 10 breaths but I find that to be overstated. I'm an average-sized woman and it takes about 18-20 breaths to do the job. Time will tell how well it holds up and how well it insulates, but I'm very impressed with it so far. I can lay on my side without my hip touching the ground and I think I'm going to enjoy the longer length. (Posted on 12/2/-1)
Great Buy Review by Ralph
Ok, this baby weighs in at just over a pound like 1lb 2 oz. It compresses down to a size slightly smaller that a Nalgene so no need to strap it to the outside of your pack. (Nobody likes a wet sleeping pad) It's a full size full width comfortable sleeping pad. It provides plenty of loft off the ground to keep you from losing heat via conduction. I have seen an insulated one but this one has been good to me I am not sure how necessary the insulation is.

BEST OF ALL ITS UNDER $60! Look one of the great parts about backpacking is you don't have to spend a ton of money to enjoy the outdoors. Our country is beautiful and entertaining in it's self. So, I respect gear makers that understand that not everyone has a ton of disposable income and make quality gear in a reasonable price range.The comparable models from competitors namely Therma-Rest are either A) Twice the price B) Twice the weight OR C) Twice the packable size (IE: They don't compress down)

Here is what you sacrifice for these things. It is not self inflating, but look your a backpacker your in good shape, you can blow up a sleeping pad. The top is not textured so some might say it is slippery I don't find this to be a problem I stay put on it I think the pattern helps you stay put but if you don't like pads without textured tops you may not like it.

All in all I think this a great buy. If your on the fence, go for it. (Posted on 12/2/-1)
Nice Pad Review by Emerson
Nice pad. Has a nice smooth feel like sleeping bag material, not rubber or freakin "micro fiber". I'm 6"4 200lbs and supports me perfect. This mat is comfy, I guess they're onto something with the Z design. Really light too, packs down to about a soda can size, or pop can if you're a fruitcake. Mine is hunter green on one side and navy blue on the other. I'll edit after I get back from the Ozark trail if it lets me down. (Posted on 12/2/-1)
Replaced other mat Review by Doug
The static v replaced my old self inflating thermarest. This pad packs down smaller than the size of a nalgene bottle. It takes about 2 minutes to blow up and is very comfortable. I used it serveral times in the everglades and it held up great. the reason it gets 4 stars is the fact that just to be safe i reccommend putting something under it. I use a ground sheet, then my tent bottom. two layers under my pad makes me feel better about sleeping on the ground. (Posted on 12/2/-1)

Superior Mattress Review by Hollis
Bought this to replace Thermarest backpacking mattresses. Klymit is by far a superior mattress! It packs in half the size of the smallest Thermarest. While it is not "self-inflating" the Klymit takes just a minute to inflate. It is MUCH more comfortable to sleep on...outstanding for a thin, backpacking style mattress. And, it is much easier to deflate and pack than a Thermarest. Highly recommended. (Posted on 12/2/-1)
Exactly as described Review by Roderick
bought this sleeping mat for camping in a hot climate. gave it a trial at home before we go on the hiking/camping trip and is exactly as others have described, it blows up very quickly and is quite comfortable. my wife gave it a try and liked it enough that i bought another one for her to use. (Posted on 12/2/-1)
Great Support Review by Son
I purchased this for a trip to the High Sierras. I weigh 230 pounds and 6' 2" tall. This unique design definitely adds comfort. It kept me of the cold floor at night and was cool to lay on during a midday nap. for me it had great support in the hip area. Super easy to inflate and deflate. I have used it 3 times and it has not leaked air. It is much more affordable than some of the other expensive name brands. Pay attention to the length and width, if it suits you then I believe you will be happy with the comfort. (Posted on 12/2/-1)
Very Pleased Review by Marco
Very pleased. Well made. Light weight. Inflates in 10 - 12 breaths. Deflates quickly and is easy to roll up and pack. Keeps hips and shoulders off the ground. (Posted on 12/2/-1)
Worked perfect for me Review by Refugio
This tough, affordable midweight pad worked perfectly for me. I camped two nights with it and didn't even have to re-inflate. It rolls up neatly and fits easily into its sack (which contains a small patch kit).

When repacking, I did notice that the cap of the valve had broken off, but it didn't affect closure. I probably broke it manhandling my stuff during a hurried departure, so I don't think it should reflect on the product.

Anyway, great price, and I was so pleased that I ordered another for a friend's use on an upcoming trip. (Posted on 12/2/-1)
deflates quickly Review by Frederic
I needed something affordable so I read on about this. When it came in I tried it out. It takes about 10 breaths to fill it up completely and it is really nice that the mouth piece is bigger so its not like your blowing this up with a straw. I laid on this for about 10 minutes outside on the ground in about 40 degree without a sleeping bag and I could feel the heat staying on my back. This deflates really quick and rolls up and fits into the stuff sack every time the size of a 32oz water bottle. (Posted on 12/2/-1)

Hot Cakes Review by Julius
i looked at alot of these,and seeing these selling like hot cakes i went with this one! this past weekend was the first time i used it. its packed down the size of a Foster single beer can,so it dosent take up much space in my pack and very lite.now that being said im 6'2" and 250lbs. and had know problem with comfort on back or my side. i liked the size and wait of it and the easeof setting it up. a couple of good puffs its full of air.so over all very good mat for just about any camping or sleeping on the floor of you house.. (Posted on 12/2/-1)
Great for travel Review by Blaine
I actually use these for travel, but not in the outdoors but inside motel rooms with awful matresses. I have previously used model with linear air tubes and found them uncomfortable and uneven. The klymit with the "V" pattern makes it much more restfull and less prone to movement. It is by far the lightest and most compact design on the market. Easy to fill, less than 15 breaths. Seems durable, but would like just a drop wider since I don't use it as a base for a sleeping bag outside. (Posted on 12/2/-1)

Best ever Review by Darrell
This mattress is the best I have had considering the fact that I saved weight in my backpack and it was comfortable. It wasn't like my bed at home but it did give me two decent night's of sleep compared to the year before when I had just a foam thing. (Posted on 12/2/-1)
Great for hunters Review by Alec
Gearing up for backpack hunting can be expensive, the more you spend the better and lighter your gear will be. Here is one item you can save a lot of money on. Most other compact mattresses will most likely cost 2-3 times what this one costs and probably won't be as light or as compact. I bought this mattress for backpack hunting and an extended trip into the mountains by horseback. I spent 21 days sleeping on it last season and was as comfortable as my much bulkier and heavier foam/air mattress I use for camping from the truck or car. I slept very well on it every time into the mountains, and I love how small it is. (Posted on 12/2/-1)

Pretty Durable Review by Roscoe
Upgraded from a thinner pad, and so far I like it. Pretty comfortable, lightweight, and it packs down to the size of a 1-liter Nalgene bottle. Haven't gotten the chance to use it in any cold weather yet, but based on the fact that it's uninsulated, I'm guessing it isn't as well suited for stuff like that. Compared to my last pad, it takes some huffin' and puffin' to inflate; however, it's well worth the effort. Pretty durable too; although I'm not one to trash my gear. Overall a super solid 3-season pad. (Posted on 12/2/-1)
Only pad for me Review by Connie
This is now the only sleeping pad my wife and I carry. I was amazed at the comfort for the lightweight design of these sleeping pads. We now own 4 of these. Fantastic comfort rolled up in a size a little bigger than a soda can. Takes me about 15 breaths to inflate.

Best solution for the budget Review by Jeff
The Static V sleeping pad offers one of the best solutions for your outdoor comfort while staying in budget... Review by Jeff
"I have slept on a variety of sleeping pads and I must say, the Static V has a one-up on all others that I've tried. I think the best feature about this products is the cost. The Static V retails at $59.95 which is about half the price as most other comparable pads on the market. It also comes with a carry-sack and patch kit...I am really happy with my purchase of the Klymit pad. I have recently moved to China where I'll be spending the next year and made sure that the Klymit Static V was in my pack. This will be a valuable piece of travel gear as even sleeping in a hotel bed can be just as bad as sleeping on the ground. " (Posted on 12/2/-1)
Stop reading and buy one Review by G30
If your reading these reviews, then my guess is your thinking about purchasing the Static V. Stop reading and rest assured your purchasing a great product.

Worhty Replacement Review by Backpacker
My last pad was a Therm-a-rest Ultralite; the Static V was better because of the width, thickness, and ease of use when inflating and deflating. Also the V chambered air tubes functioned quite well in allowing support distribution of the major pressure points. When I first tried it out after dialing in the the right amount of air pressure I fell asleep for two hours instantly while watching TV, loved it. After 35 years of using Therm-A-Rest pads: the Original and the Ultralite, I found this pad a worthy replacement to my past sleeping gear. The Therm-A-Rest worked for what they were, but after a while they were not adequate in the width, or in comfort.
With the Therm-A- Rest I always wished that the width would be 2 inches wider; at 23 inches the Static V is perfect. The thickness of the Static V allow for better dispersion of body pressure points and better support to the overall comfort while displacing air volume to where it is needed; something the Therm-A-Rest never did and was always lacking.
It inflated easily and deflated just as well, and it folds up to a nice size at that. I haven't used it backpacking yet but while testing it while watching TV I fell asleep and did not wake up until two hours later; when I woke up I felt great, with no soreness or uncomfortable after affect what so ever. With the Therm-A-Rest I would feel soreness in the shoulder, and back; so I say to the Static V, love it all night long. (Posted on 12/2/-1)

Can't be beat Review by Laverne
Rolls into the size of a nalgene, inflates to a fairly decent thickness and offers decent support.
It's not for winter use, but is a great 3 season sleeping pad. For the price, comfort factor and small pack size, this can't be beat.
Also a lifetime warranty inspires confidence it is a quality product.

Really worth it Review by Lawerence
I ordered the pad thinking I was taking a gamble. I got it and it actually does take only 10 -11 good breaths to fully inflate. I tried it on the hardwood floor back and side and kept my pelvis off the wood. Impressive. I've only had a few pads, but I can say that on the last 2 night outing with this pad, I was the most comfortable I have ever been in 16 yrs of outings other than on an air mattress. As for durabilty, I think it will last with proper care. Right now, this is one of those purchases that I feel was really worth it! (Posted on 12/2/-1)
Recommend to use under bag Review by Theo
Much better than air mattresses that require an air pump. This one inflates completely with a few breaths, deflates easily in about a minute. Not as comfortable as my mattress at home, but good enough for two weeks of camping. Company recommends placing inside sleeping bag, but this was a little too rubbery for summer camping. Under sleeping bag works fine. (Posted on 12/2/-1)

All Good Review by Sheldon
Likes: First of all, this thing is really comfortable. The weird looking air baffles create a nice double benefit of a thick cushion of air and little negative spaces that your body heats up, giving a little extra warmth. True to the description, this only takes about 9 deep breaths to fill. I'm 6'2" and about 160 and I can get my entire body on this without hanging over the top or bottom and when lying flat there are no weird saggy parts. One of the coolest things is that this packs down to just a little taller but about the same diameter as a coke can. Really light, but also super comfortable, I'm surprised this hasn't gotten more attention.
Dislikes: Everything is good so far. Haven't had it for long enough to speak on long-term durability yet. (Posted on 12/2/-1)

Can't beat the price Review by Gerardo
Finding the right sleeping pad for any outdoor adventure can be hard and knowing how much to spend can be even harder. Klymit is a relative new comer to the outdoor industry, but don't make the mistake of not looking into this company. They have brought some great solutions for sleeping comfortably in the backcountry minus the weight.

The first pad that I reviewed from Klymit was their Inertia X, which what super lightweight. But for many that pad would be too extreme or minimalist. But now Klymit has introduced the Static V. Not the newest of their pads but factoring weight, price and comfort, this is a winner. Klymit uses body mapping technology in this pad to maximize comfort and performance. The one thing I noticed about this pad was how easy it was to blow up. Yes this is not a self-inflating sleeping pad; you will have to blow it up. But it only took me 21 breathes to fill it up to capacity. I am sure there are many people who can do it in less and it will take others more but 20 breathes is pretty sweet.

The Static V is 2.5 inches thick when inflated, but packs down to about the size of a water bottle. I never pulled out a scale but the specs says it weighs 18.1 ounces. The most impressive thing about his pad is the width. I have talked with many people that hate how narrow some sleeping pads are. The Static V is 23 inches wide, which is 3 inches wider than most regular size pads. This gives you a little more wiggle room and will help you stay on your pad all night long. Also this pad seemed and felt to be bomber, made to last. I felt that you could easily sleep on the ground and not worry about ripping the pad.

The air valve on the Static V is a different type of valve than a lot of other pads. Klymit calls it an easy-to-use push valve and for most it was. One of our testers wasn't a fan of it at first but eventually got use to it. Another down side for some people will be the length of the pad. It only comes in one length at 72". For me that is okay but for anyone over 6 feet, you might want to look into another sleeping pad.

But at $59.95 you cannot beat the price for this sleeping pad. It is almost half of the cost of other comparable sleeping pads. This is the perfect pad for someone who would like to get a lightweight sleeping pad that packs small at a great price. This is also perfect for those that love a wider pad. I highly recommend looking into this pad and others that Klymit makes. They probably have something to fit your needs.

Pros:
Price
The Width of the pad
Lightweight
Cons:
Different air valve
Not self-inflating
Doesn't come in a long size. (Posted on 12/2/-1)
Grat Price Review by Howard
Using the same valve as the Inertia XL, (and still being just as impressed with it!) this time I started the timer before I blew it up (novel I know!). It took a not-too-shabby fifty seconds for me to inflate it without the risk of passing out (for the record it took a minute twenty to inflate my Neo Air).

Once inflated I took the liberty of collapsing onto the Static V. I was impressed! In fact, I was really impressed. So much indeed that I immediately grabbed for my Neo Air to compare the two for comfort (and the Inertia XL too, actually).

The Static V was similar in dimension to the Neo Air (Posted on 12/2/-1)

I've been backpacking for many years and this is the absolute best padding I have found. It is light weight, packs very small, blows up quickly, delfates quickly and easily.

Amazing Review by Zack
I slept on this for 5 nights in a row and it was amazing. And to think that it took up so little space in my pack. Truly worth the price! (Posted on 12/2/-1)
Good in the cold Review by Hal
I took the Klymit Static V out to the Wasatch Nat'l forest for an overnighter. Despite the fact that it got down to the mid-20s at night, the 5-6 hours of sleep I did get were due to the pad. It has got to be one of the lightest full size pads on the market today. I dropped it in my backpack just to see and it hardly made a difference in weight. It took me about 15 breaths to blow it up completely, which isn't bad. It also retained air really well. By the next day, it had lost Maybe 10% of volume, which was more than enough to stay comfortable. (Posted on 12/2/-1)
Great pad, brilliant value Review by Megan
I just got my Klymit STATIC V Ultralight Camping Sleeping Pad (72? x 23?) in the mail last week and immediately hit the trail. I have used a variety of pads over the years but always resisted spending money on a thermarest or other high priced pad. Then I came across this one after some uncomfortable nights in the Smokies. The specs are comparable to the popular inflatables on the market these days, but the price is way better!

Very Happy Review by Daren
Here at theBREAKDOWN we love finding great products from local companies. Not that there is anything wrong with going out and buying the best product available from a larger retailer, but you get that added sense of stoke when you buy something from a company that is in your own backyard and supporting those people you share the trails with. Klymit gets you the best of both worlds. The Static V sleeping pad offers one of the best solutions for your outdoor comfort while staying in budget and supporting a great company.

I have slept on a variety of sleeping pads and I must say, the Static V has a one-up on all others that I've tried. I think the best feature about this products is the cost. The Static V retails at $59.95 which is about half the price as most other comparable pads on the market. It also comes with a carry-sack and patch kit. You won't get that with some of the other pads out there. Getting the Static V made me stoked right from the get-go because I was already saving money to use on other gear.

The pack size of this pad is perfect too. Coming in at just 5" x 9" this thing will fit in just about any pocket on your pack. It weighs just over 18 ounces so you don't have to worry about sacrificing comfort on the trail for comfort at camp.

A small pack size is great but I can't stand a short pad. The Static V is a whopping 72" long and 23" wide. It's perfect for me since I am 5'11". I don't have to hang my feet off the end or build a pillow for my head off the other end. The v-design in the pad creates the need for fewer breaths to inflate than other pads. This is nice, especially at high elevations where blowing up a pad can cause dizziness. Klymit has designed a great valve for their pads too. Rather than trying to screw the valve shut while blowing air into your pad, you simply push down on the valve and it closes. Give it a quarter turn to lock it in place. After inflation the pad is 2.5" thick. Like most other pads, you don't even come in contact with the ground when laying down, even on your side.

The Static V is an ideal pad if you are a side-sleeper like me. Klymit also offers other ultra-light solutions which would be great for back-sleepers.

I am really happy with my purchase of the Klymit pad. I have recently moved to China where I'll be spending the next year and made sure that the Klymit Static V was in my pack. This will be a valuable piece of travel gear as even sleeping in a hotel bed can be just as bad as sleeping on the ground. (Posted on 12/2/-1)
