Klymit Insulated Static V Recon Sleeping Pad

The Klymit Insulated Static V sleeping pad is light, packable, comfortable and warm. We like it!

In this review, we share the particulars about it, why we chose it and how it's working out so far.

The Klymit Insulated Static V sleeping pad is 23" wide x 72" long x 2.5" thick (58.42cm x 182.88cm x 6.35cm) and has an R-Value of 4.4. When packed in it's 5" x 8" and weighs 25 oz (709 g).

There are two main reasons we purchased this sleeping pad.

The first reason is, the 2" foam mattress in our roof top tent isn't thick enough. When sleeping on our sides, our shoulders and hips touch the floor of the tent and that's not comfortable.

The second reason we chose the Static V sleeping pad is it is compact and portable. This works out great to put it in our get-home bag or use it anywhere else besides the roof top tent.

Klymit makes a Static V sleeping pad that is not insulated, but we chose to go with the insulated one for use in colder weather. The R-value of 4.4 does a good job of protecting against the loss of body heat to the ground. Even though it's insulated, we find that it isn't too hot for use on warm nights.

The material is more woven like fabric. It does not have a plastic feel at all. While it makes a little noise when you move around on it, it isn't loud or overly noisy.

It takes me about 15 breaths to inflate the pad completely. That said, I find the Insulated Static V to be more comfortable if I let a little air out of it.

When completely inflated, it's a bit too bouncy. So, I let out enough air so that if I'm sitting in the middle of it my bum just touches the ground. With a little less air it supports me while still keeping me up off the ground. It's a win-win.

All Klymit sleeping pads come with a stuff sack, patch kit, and lifetime guarantee.
