About Me I've only been backpacking and hiking for a few years, but I'm totally hooked. Started with The Wave, then Grand Canyon Rim-to-Rim, and a lot of day hikes. Can't wait to tackle the JMT this summer.

Re: combo of inflatable and foam?
Greg and Herbert - those seem like really good suggestions - combining the two. I'll also check into the warranty on my current one. Thanks so much for the ideas!
