That link goes to what I believe is the women's version, which can be detrimental if they're insulation mapping is substantially different. In any case, it's the short version. Thanks though.

From the specs for the women's version vs the regular, the women's is 1oz heavier at 15oz and shorter as well.

I'm thinking the women's version probably has a higher R-value. This would account for the extra weight and is appropriate since women tend to sleep colder than men, thus making it gender specific (Also the POE site says they use "bio mapping" in the foot region). So anyone picking this up, you're most likely getting a warmer but heavier pad than the regular.

Peak Elite AC on 05/10/2011 20:53:19 MDT Print View

I checked Amazon for a size regular a month or so ago and had go the "notify me when available" routine. A couple of weeks later they emailed me that there was no expected in stock date and that my order was being canceled. I found one at Sportsman's Guide of all places, was delivered maybe 5 days after I ordered it in spite of a 3 week expected ship date they warned of. More $ though.

Have fun,

Can you send the link to the regular? I don't see it on there, just the women's. I am looking for the long, actually.

Got my POE Peak Elite AC Regular - only 11.8oz! on 05/12/2011 18:47:06 MDT Print View

Received just today from Amazon. It only weighs 11.8oz (334g)!! which is great since I thought it was going to be 14oz (which is what is says on the box). I hope they didn't forget to put in some of insulation. I haven't inflated it yet, but it has some panels on one side on the inside, it feels like.

I exchanged my neoair trekker for one of these pads in a size regular. I haven't tried sleeping on it yet, it feels a lot smaller though. it does way significantly less though

just got my POE Peak Elite AC women's on 05/19/2011 15:06:51 MDT Print View

Timing could not be better; I am going out later today for an overnight to play with all my new toys, and when I got back from shopping a few minutes ago it was on the front porch. Pad only (no stuffsack, cinch strap or repair kit) is 10.45 oz on my scale; I am also wondering if some of the insulation was left out. I just emailed POE to ask if they know why the difference between the weight and the specs on their site.

Will report back tomorrow on comfort when I've had a chance to sleep on it.

edit: see user review by me

POE Peak Elite AC lighter than planned on 05/19/2011 16:24:27 MDT Print View

Here's my reply from POE customer service when I asked whether my lighter than specs pad was a 2nd, or what...

Hi Debbie,

This is accurate.
Our Peak Elite AC pads are lighter than originally planned.
The reason for this is our original weight is from a sample piece. Once this item was put into production it is even lighter which is a nice surprise. No it is not missing anything. There is always a slight variation from pad to pad. We have been seeing pieces from 10 oz. to 12 oz. with a mean of about 11.5 oz for the 'regular' length. So for the Petite length you should be a little lighter than that. Which you are.

So your pad is exactly where it should be.

If you have any more questions feel free to contact me.

Regards,
Josh Wise

I got a long one from backcountry edge. Feels pretty comfy and it only weighs 12.5 oz! A bit under spec.
