Thinking about these for car camping.

Who's had them?

I've got one, I think it's great for car camping. I'ts thick comfortable, warm, doesn't slide around in the tent or under your sleeping bag, and mine has held up very well over the past 4 years or so that I've had it. It's too big, bulkey, and heavy for backpacking, but for car camping I'd take it over my thermarest prolight 4 anyday.

VERY comfortable, almost as good as sleeping in a bed.

Almost too big and heavy even for car camping.

Great pad for car camping for sure - enjoy!
XL size is awesome. Can side-sleep and never feel the ground!
