I am looking at the XL version. 24oz so not ultra light but not bad. 4" thick and 4.7 R value. 25x76". $80

Anyone have one?

Instead of rolling it up I could lay it flat in my suitcase so I'd have a real pad instead of a roll of reflectix.

As someone else who was going to suggest the klymit can I ask what you dont like about it?

I have looked at the paria pads as well but am leaning towards the klymit for my next pad.

This is a 4" thick pad for one. The klymit looked much thinner. The klymit is not good for side sleepers like me with their funky pocket design. Every video I've watched on them left me unimpressed.

I’ve looked at and considered a few pieces of Paria gear, but passed because I couldn’t find enough (or any) reviews on the 1 or 2 sites I trust. By the specs the stuff seems decent, though.

I don't care for the rippled pattern. Too many spots where my body could poke through and touch the ground.

Uhhh, having checked it out in person I dont really see that as an issue unless you aren't inflating the pad enough.

You could go ahead and be the paria guinea pig.

Did you notice the price difference?

Yep and i took into account the established brand vs a reletively unknown company as far as pads go. I have a regular size xlite that has been worth every penny. I don't mind paying extra for something that is going to help my sleep.

I also have own a coleman self inflating, two different fox river self inflating pads, an alpine design self inflating and a z lite sol.

The klymit static v's, big agnes pads and sea to summit pads all have good reviews, the paria outside of amazon reviews are non existant.

My Exped DownMat 9 winter mat. I got it for less than half price ($98ish) on geartrade.com, as a repaired return.

NEMO Tensor ultralight summer pad. 3” thick and 17oz for the wide version.

Then there’s my old standard Therm-A-Rest Trail Pro (or is it a Trail Scout? I can never remember) that I’ve had for years and that’s just about perfect for around 20F or higher. It’s pretty heavy for its performance, but the R-value lets me use a lighter sleeping bag.
