NEMO Flyer Self-Inflating Sleeping Pad
20D PU Fabric With Sculpted Topography
NEMO Flyer Self-Inflating Sleeping Pad Details
Self-Inflating Baffled Air Pad for unparalleled comfort. Plush open-cell foam offers a second level of security in the backcountry. New technology allows for the first self-inflated pad to use 3D-sculpting. Horizontal coring retains a higher R-value with less foam, so you don't have to sacrifice weight or packed size for warmth. NEMO's unique manufacturing approach removes 60% of foam yet increases thickness by 290% when inflated. Ultralight 20D soft-touch fabric set is more pliable and comfortable than competitors. Zero-profile, multi-functional, micro-adjustable valve for fine-tuning, and fast inflation/deflation.

I actually purchased this item through REI (needed to spend the dividend points) but loved it so much I had to leave a review on first lite as well! I’m a side sleeper and have tried using pads from sea to summit and klymit before and was less than impressed with the support. i opted for this mat because the woman at REI suggested to try it since it has an inner foam layer that would help the mat hold shape as well as give a little extra cushion for those who sleep on their sides. She was 100% right! I just recently took this on a 3 day camping weekend and hands down had the best sleep I’ve ever had in a tent.
Pros of this mat: I have the long and wide version - I’m 6ft tall and 155 lbs and it was plenty of room for me to roll from side to side in the middle of the night. The valve makes it easy to adjust if you over inflate the mat and need to let out just a smidge of air. Like I said hands down the most comfortable mat I’ve ever slept on and the R value was more than enough for me to stay warm when the temps dropped into the low 40s overnight while camping
Cons of this mat: if you’re looking to be an ultralight camper or are really pinched for space this mat is definitely on the larger size and might not work for those trying to be minimalistic. The picture is comparing it to a Nalgene bottle is pretty accurate. I would also use the term “self inflating” lightly - the mat definitely puffs up a little but it doesn’t really “firm” up. I have to blow maybe 6-8 breaths into it to get it to the firmness that I like - really not a deal breaker for me, but if you’re looking for a mat that is 100% self inflating then you might want to look into something else.
Overall I would suggest this mat to anyone who isn’t too concerned about saving space in their pack and likes having a little extra cushion for sleeping on your side!
