Klymit Static V Sleeping Pad

Klymit Static V Sleeping Pad

This is the Static V inflatable sleeping pad;
an excellent backpacking option that effectively balances weight, packed size and comfort and
we’ll take a look at some of the specifics here, again the Klymit Static V. At a first
glance there might not be any stand out features to the Static V other than its compact size
but when I inflate this pad you’ll see the “V” shaped baffling that makes it stand
out from many of the other inflatable pads that are available. Inflation of the Static
V pad takes about 10 breaths and compared to a lot of inflatable pads on the market
place, that’s not much. The “V” shaped baffling is now evident and the shaping limits
airflow and traps the heat of your body so it makes this pad warmer than comparative,
un-insulated, inflatable sleeping pads. The shaping on the inside area and also these
smaller horizontal baffles at the sides, kind of help to keep you in place on the pad. Again,
makes it a really comfortable pad throughout your night of sleep. The full dimensions of
the Static V are 23 inches wide, 72 inches in length and 2.5 inches of thickness and
that is at a weight of just 20 ounces for the pad. A really sturdy face fabric here
of 75D poly and all of those factors, again, go into making this a really nice value of
a pad for 3-season backpacking.

  1. just got mine today, we will see how it holds up to my back country use. review to come after i've put it through its paces

  2. 20 oz (1 1/4lb) seems pretty heavy for a sleeping pad. to me. that's over 4% of what i like to carry when packing. the size is nice – if it repacks to a similar compactness – will check it out and see if it seems easily repackable at this size.

  3. I own supposedlly the upgraded one. none insulated Klymit Static V Luxe 30 inch wide it just came today. OMG it is not comfortable. It is as comfortable as it looks. You can feel all them bumps. If your you lay on the side or roll over you hit the floor and go between them. You feel the hard floor even if full to the max. If you know you can't sleep on lumpy bed then don't buy it. I am so happy I got my Exped mega mat, it is 3x more but worth years of super comfort. I don't know how people sleep on this. It might help the discomfort if you put 2 quilts on top folded in half first. Ten maybe you wont feel all them v lumps. I even took some air out little at a time and can't get used to feeling not flat and so lumpy. I don't know if not being insulated has anything to do with it or not. If you know you could never sleep on the beach mattresses with with V-shape like this then don't buy it. I hope in my hammock it feels better with not as much gravity. I didn't buy it for a tent. Wish me luck this summer on it in a hammock. I will take my Optic tent with my Exped Mega Mat. My Exped mattressis more comfortable then my home mattress.l

  4. If you had to give it a name of the color green what would you call it?
    Lime green, forest green, army green, olive drab green?

  5. I'm 220 lbs and a side sleeper with blown rotator cuffs. Getting comfortable can be difficult for me. This pad works great. I don't bottom out laying on it in any position, sleep comfortably, and it's quiet. The pad fills and deflates easily, packs small and is light. The V baffles allow my down bag to loft and I stay warm. This pad would be a good deal at much higher price. It's a great deal at current internet prices.You'll like this pad. It's not a gimmick.
