drives me nuts on 08/01/2014 23:02:24 MDT Print View

It drives me ABSOLUTELY nuts that I can't get a regular length pad with the 25 inch width in a neo air. I cannot understand why they won't make one. The only reasoning I can come up with is that nobody makes a wide enough 2 person tent? Maybe they just know most 2 person tents are less than than the 50ish inches necessary to fit two next to eachother??

You said you wanted light. Cut it down from 32" original shape. Use w light additional pad if needing slight addl cushion. All these suggestions so far seem to be a bit heavy. Wght depends on how much you cut down but pads are already light.

A manufacturer should make a wider 3/4 length pad please. Like a thin, light Thermarest for ideal comfort vs weight. May be worth it for them as people may purchase for use on shorter explorations.

Now the R value has been increased the Trekker Torso looks quite promising to me. Not super light but probably tough enough not to need a 1/8 inch foam mat under it, so save a few oz there.

I currently use a Klymit X Wave when it's warm. Only got a couple of nights on it so far but I have found it very comfortable. When it's colder I have one of Bender's old mats - with some synth in it. It's only 9oz and really warm, but it's just too narrow for me. I have decided that a decent nights sleep is well worth a few extra grams to me, so I am going to give the Trekker a go. The days when I could just sleep like a log on a thin bit of foam re unfortunately behind me now:).

cottage help on 08/02/2014 05:20:12 MDT Print View

there is still no cottage mfg out there that is willing to sell shortened TMR xtherm 25"...

i understand the warranty issues - but i think if someone would get a good process going they could probably end up doing a very good job and give a warranty as well - albeit maybe a limited time one.

i would buy a 3/4 25" xtherm (or xlite depending on use) in a heartbeat

sometimes if i am on a site where i tend to roll off the pad, i'll tuck whatever odd extra clothing i have under the edge(s) , and that makes it work like the narrow mat is wider.
i owned one of those import large-side-tube mats, and it fell apart on me in 9 weeks.

cheers,
