Klymit Inertia Sleeping Pad Review: Inertia X-Frame

I have already gone into depth with this pad and you can read the full review here. The main features of this pad is that it is light. In fact, it is the lightest full length sleeping pad available to buy. It also comes in a more durable recon version.

The key feature of this pad is the loft pocket technology. Klymit has removed excess material where it is not needed, and left these “pockets” where your sleeping bag can expand into. This not only saves weight, but it allows your sleeping bag to keep you warm underneath.

Klymit Sleeping Pad Review: Static v

Klymit Static V Sleeping Pad
The Klymit Static V sleeping pad has become a popular option for ultralight backpackers. It is light and offers a bit more comfort than the Inertia X frame. It uses a V-Chambered body mapping technology to provide the ultimate comfort.

The V-Chamber design does a couple of things. First of all, it has gaps which your sleeping bag can loft into. Meaning your bag can add some extra warmth underneath you. This is different compared to other pads which flatten the sleeping bag, making it ineffective.

The V-shape is also designed to conform to your body, meaning a more comfortable sleep. It is a perfect choice for any sleeping style and doesn’t matter if you sleep on your side, back or stomach.

Specifications

weight: 18.7 oz / 530g
Dimensions (inflated): 72″ x 23″ x 2.5″ / 182.9 cm x 58.4 cm x 6.4 cm
Dimensions (packed): 3″ x 8″ / 7.6 cm x 20.3 cm
Price: $54.95 USD
Where to buy: Moosejaw.com Amazon.com

Pro’s

  • Lightweight. Not the lightest pad available, but still pretty good.
  • Durable. Made out of a 75D polyester meaning it should hang around for a while. If something does happen it also comes wit its own repair kit.
  • Easy to inflate. Can be fully inflated in about 10 breaths.

Con’s

  • It does not work well at colder temperatures. But it will keep you warm if you only plan on camping in warmer weather.
  • Length. It may be too short if you are over 6 foot.

Klymit Sleeping Pad Review: Inertia O-zone

Klymit Inertia O Zone Sleeping Pad
Another great Ultralight Sleeping pad by Klymit. Once again Klymit utilizes its body mapping technology to remove excess material. You are left with another lightweight sleeping pad. Unlike the Inertia X-frame, The O-zone comes with its own pillow. This makes for a great luxury item considering it only weighs a few more ounces than the inertia x-frame.

The holes once again act as loft pockets, meaning your sleeping pad will provide warmth underneath you. This is a feature I really enjoy about Klymit Sleeping pads.
