I came across this on ebay and ordered one. Just had to have it. I have no affiliation w/the seller.

Seller's specs: / Measured specs:

70.8" x 21.6" / 72" x 22"
.3" thick / ~5/8" thick at "bumps"
5.1" x 5.1" packed/folded / 5 3/8" x 4.9"

I forgot to weigh it.

JUST KIDDING! It came in slightly under spec at 8oz on the dot. It measured 7.9oz a couple of times so I rounded up.

The foam feels slightly less "springy" than my Ridgerest.

This pad is not a disappointment - quite the opposite. Specs are better than quoted overall, and comfort is comparable to a Zrest - that is there is none that I could discern - but better than the ground. It does what it should do, and is a great size and weight. The price is right, too.

I was pleased w/ the seller and shipping. Here's some pics:

The taunting was just a bonus, I swear!!!! :)

Here's the ebay listing: http://www.ebay.com/itm/261124349550?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649

Sorry about that! It's a good deal and jokes aside about the comfort, it really is more comfy than a flat pad. the added width is great too.
