    Default Sleeping pads

    I was thinking about getting a Paco sleeping pad for upcoming river trips .
    They are a tad $$$ but look hefty .
    Has anyone had any experience with them ??
    I seen them on the NRS site and are on sale .
    Thanks

    I've used them on many Lower 48 raft trips. They are quite comfy for sleeping and also make great covers for dry boxes & coolers. They are very, very heavy, though, and there's no way I'm take one on a fly-in trip. They also don't compress well for hauling gear. More useful Outside than in AK IMHO.

    We have 3. There are no better alternatives when it comes to sleeping on a gravel bar than a Paco pad. Like an earlier poster said, they are bulky, but for car camping or raft trips when weight/bulk isn't an issue you won't go wrong. We place ours under the tent and avoid having to use a ground cloth.
