I bought this early last year and I've used it mostly on bikepacking trips, which I do a lot of. It packs down light and small, it's easy to stuff in a bag and strap to a bike in a lot of different ways, and it's easy to inflate and fold up. It's just not my ideal hammock pad though. The non-slip strips didn't do much in my double hammock. I do tend to move around in my sleep a lot, which could be part of the problem, but I to get up and adjust the pad more than I'd like. I don't know if the side wings were really necessary. They did help structure the hammock a bit and I think they helped insulate better to make a nice comfy space too. The insulation works well. I've slept comfortably in weather as cold as 30°F with this pad, a quilt, and some warm socks. I haven't used it in the heat of summer much. I've also used this pad flat in a tent (because why not try it?) with a sleeping bag and it was very comfortable. It's a good, versatile pad I think it's just not my ideal pad. I'll be trying a more standard shape pad from Klymit soon.
