    Sleeping Bag NEMO Cosmo Insulated Air Sleeping Pad

    I am headed over to the UK/Europe next summer for a motorcycle adventure and I was looking for a new compact insulated sleeping pad and came across the NEMO Cosmo Insulated Air Sleeping Pad that is currently on sale at REI

    It's a 76 x 25 x 3.5 inches insulated pad that inflates with a unique foot pump system and a thicker/larger end tube to act as a pillow. It has great specs, packed size/weight are great and it has a couple of great reviews, so I thought I'd buy one to try out. It inflates quite quickly/easily and deflates very fast!

    I'll report back on my impressions of it after I've had a chance to use it.

    I can’t wait hear how it works out for you. I have been thinking about a different sleeping pad for myself. The Big Agnes that I have now is great but, it takes way too many puffs of air to blow up. Thanks!! Roger

    Yes, Although I love the comfort/size of my Exped Pump Deluxe 9 Synmat, I find using the hand to be a PITA, as it is a little awkward to use and a little time consuming.


    I slept on it last night and it is very comfy, quick and easy to inflate! Would you believe 45 seconds!

    When you unroll the pad, you undo the 2 inflation caps and tuck them into the cut outs along the edge of the pad provided for them.

    Then you just step on the inflation pad and pump away. Was very quick and easy to inflate. Yes, I timed it. Then you reinstall those caps

    If the pad is too firm, you reach over to the little adjustment nozzle, open it up and adjust the firmness to your liking. Pretty slick!

    Not too noisy when you move around on it. Easy to adjust the pad firmness with the easy to use release valve by your head and easily/quickly deflates with the large deflation valve located on the underside of the pad by your head.

    Once you fold it in 1/3rds lengthwise and have it rolled up, you use the supplied Velcro strap to keep it rolled up and it easily fits inside it's stuff sack with room to spare.

    When I 1st rolled it up, it came out to a little longer/thinner packed size than when I 1st got it, which may work out well for you, depending on your packing strategy

    So, when I unrolled it to inflate it for the purposes here, when I rolled it up this time, I got it to a more compact height and a little thicker.

    All in all, I'm very happy with this item, especially at the price I got it for.

    Ya might want to try it out before you go, on the slim chance that you may not like it.

    Thanks Dusty for the review, I checked out a YouTube Video and found they make a double size and I'm thinking that it may be just the ticket for my LL camper

    I will be going for mid Jun - mid Aug, which will include some high altitudes in the Alps/Pyrenees/Dolomites etc I'm sure, but it does seem to be well insulated, Deb!
