The Static V2 is a comfortable, lightweight and super compact sleeping mat with a unique V shaped centre that hugs the body like no other camping mat.
The freedom to shed weight and pack size without sacrificing comfort or durability. The Static V2™ lets you count ounces without abandoning luxury. It offers the same exceptional comfort of the original Static V™, in a pad that weighs just one pound and packs to the size of a soda can. Weight is shed by using lighter fabric on top, while still retaining an ultra-durable underside. This pad is right at home on summer backpacking trips.
While most other lightweight inflatable sleeping pads use a flatter or more cylindrical cushion design, the Static V2 has a lot of innovative shape built into it. First, the center portion of the pad has a V shape while the outer edges are a bunch of little squares that form a side rail of sorts. The effect? Excellent cushion and stability.
The fabric is flexible and slightly thicker on the bottom than the top, giving you extra protection where it's needed. It can pack down to to the size of a Nalgene water bottle (see pic) saving important space in your pack. There are other lightweight mattress that are really good these days, but if your on a budget the Static V2 gives you an excellent overall size and weight for your money.
