Specs

Weight

3lbs. 2oz.

For sleepers who like extra cushion, the Klymaloft XL is hard to beat. It’s 5 inches high when inflated, and the top of the pad is layered with polyurethane foam that conforms to your body, eliminating pressure points on your hips, back, and shoulders. One tester spent two weeks sleeping on the Klymaloft XL while climbing in Chile’s Valle Cochamó and reported no aches or pains (from the pad, at least; the climbing was another story). At just over 3 pounds, the pad rolls up slightly bigger than a toaster and expands to 78 inches by 29 inches when inflated. We found that the Klymaloft XL can take up to 2 minutes to inflate by mouth (less with the purchase of Klymit’s air pump sack, $25).
