NEMO Switchback Insulated Pad
Axiotomic™ Closed-cell Foam
NEMO Switchback Insulated Pad Details
Highly-efficient, hexagonal nesting pattern allocates more space for taller, wider nodes, providing significantly greater plushness. More precise tooling eliminates wasted space between folded layers, enabling taller nodes to nest tighter for a smaller packed size. Taller nodes create more space for uncompressed sleeping bag insulation, trapping more warmth around your body. Premium dual-density Axiotomic™ foam offers a supple layer for comfort and a resilient layer for support.

Really enjoy using this pad in the backcountry, especially during spring scouting and early season hunts. I like that it can easily be strapped down to the exterior of your pack, which frees up interior room for other essentials. Built from high quality materials and has more durability than standard closed cell-foam pads. Tips: If you're looking for a pad for late fall/early winter (snow on the ground), take a look at the Longbow Alpine. The Switchback starts to lose its ability to insulate once the ground temp approaches freezing. Also, don't use it as a glassing pad on abrassive rocks, it'll eventually get chewed it up.
