Recently, the community based gear purchasing site known as Massdrop has been releasing some interesting new products based on feedback from the ultralight and hiking communities. The latest product of these efforts presents a partnership between the website and well known sleeping pad manufacturer Klymit. Historically, Klymit has made some acceptable sleeping pads, but never anything that was outstanding. This new offering, the Ultralight Static V Insulated, is a huge step in the right direction for Klymit, featuring very competitive specs and a superb price point. Check out the video below for all the info and a comparison to my favorite pad, the Thermarest Xlite.

Klymit x Massdrop Ultra Light Static V Insulated Sleeping Pad

Yeah… the name needs a little work, but overall this is an extremely great value for a very nice pad. As I mentioned in the video, this is not a pad that will outshine the Thermarest Xlite, but it is a stellar offer at a price that may be unbeatable. It’s specs are very competitive and outshine many of the other pads being offered by the outdoor industry.

Some specs:

  • Dimensions: 72″ x 20″ x 2.5″
  • Weight: 16.9 oz
  • Breaths to inflate: 8
  • R-value: 4.4
  • Price: $60
