While many campers still favor closed-cell foam, air pads are the new standard in lightweight comfort when it comes to camping. No, they’re not bomb-proof durable, but they do provide three inches of insulation against the cold, hard ground, which can lead to the always sought-after good night of sleep in the outdoors.
Klymit’s Static V is the affordable middle ground in this space. By that we mean that it doesn’t aim to be the lightest sleeping pad available, but it’s still light; it isn’t the most durable, but it is still stalwart. The Static V is wider than most air pads, using a unique baffle design that prevents sleepers from rolling off, which is a common complaint that users have of these types of air pads. It also packs down small, and is available as an insulated version for four-season use for a slightly larger sum ($67, with a discount).
Klymit’s Static V has always been an affordable sleeping pad, but it’s genuinely dirt cheap right now with the current Prime Day savings. Pick one up for just $50.
