The original V-Chambered air pad that changed the way people Sleep Outside™. The Static V™ is the world’s first lightweight, packable air pad that incorporates body-mapping chambers for ultimate comfort. The exclusive V-Chamber design conforms to the shape of your body while maintaining ample, lofted air pockets. The result: side, back, and stomach sleepers can all rest comfortably on a generous bed of air.
Body Mapping Technology: Our patented V-shaped design delivers support and comfort no matter how you sleep – on your side, stomach or back.
Side Rails: Integrated into the patterning and construction, they provide a secure, comfortable sleep by centering you on the pad and inhibiting air movement while tossing and turning.
Deep Weld Patterning: Unlike traditional pads that flatten the bag’s fill, Deep Welds create expansion zones that allow your bag to fully loft beneath you for improved thermal comfort.
Twist-Pull Valve: Secure and simple, it allows inflation in as few as 10 breaths and opens wide for rapid, complete deflation.
Thank you for contacting Klymit! Yes, it does float. However, one of the unique features about our pad its that it is so quick to inflate it does not hold the same volume of air as other pads which make them float more i.e. keep you out of the water. I have used the sv in a lake and it is a lot of fun.
Yes, the Static V does float, although it won't keep you completely up and out of the water. When you are finished, just make sure to dry the pad completely before storage to keep the inside from getting icky.

Though the static V is not technically a certified floatation device, it does float and can be used for recreational fun.
I had to patch my Static V when it developed a leak. It has been used most often around the house but on a few back pack trips. I have found folding and packing the pad to be challenging because the stuff sack is so tight fitting. I feel that the creases created by storage caused the pinhole. Since then I have not used the tiny stuff sack and instead have just rolled it. I was wondering if Klymit has given any thought to making a sack that will accommodate the pad without having to fold it over. Thanks,

For the klymit pads in the case of dirt and oil dirtys the pad how do you clean it
Question by: Jarod Depp on Jul 24, 2017, 2:29:11 PM
Pads must be cleaned regularly in warm water and hung dry. For particularly dirty pads mix 2 cups of warm water with 1 tablespoon of baking soda and wipe down with washcloth. Rinse well. Do not use any detergents, even natural detergents. Do not put in washing machine. Be sure to close the valve before hand washing. Pads that are not washed well will not qualify under our warranty policy. Let air dry completely before storing in provided stuff sack.

You can store your pad rolled up neatly in the stuff sack that it came in. Just make sure to wipe it down with a damp cloth to remove any dirt that might be present and make sure it is thoroughly dry before storing it for long periods of time.
