This is a great pad for people with narrow shoulders or side sleepers. I tried it in the hammock today and even under inflated the edges of my shoulders were frosty.
Great products as long as you have zero issues, as they have ZERO customer service. I've been trying to get a hold of a human being for over a month & half and still waiting on a refund from a return that was delivered to them 4 weeks ago! So sad, as I thought this company had a lot of potential. :(

Hey there, are you perhaps contacting Community Support through another account or email? I'm having trouble tracking down your support ticket in our system.

No, this was through Klymit directly. I had purchased their double V pad from their website then returned it to buy the ultralight double V pad through MassDrop when it dropped a week later.
so 5 nights now on mine, in 2 backpacks, 3 nights in Sierras with night temps just below 32F, 2 nights in Los Padres with night temps in high 30's/low 40's. About what I expected... Pad needs more inflation during night, BUT I'm not sure if this is slow leakage or just much lower night temps, lowering the air pressure in the pad. If I inflate during early evening 60F-ish temp, by midnight I have to add - but it's in the 30's, so maybe sig. lower temps make a diff. on the relative air pressure of what is a low volume of air anyway... Otherwise I do bottom out when I side sleep - can't get the pressure high enough to NOT bottom. ON the back, I'm ok - but, I'm mostly a side sleeper... bummer... and I feel the cold through my hip. I'm constantly sliding... only ONE side has anti-slide on it, so either the pad slides (if I put the antislide side up to keep me on the pad) or I slid off and the pad stays in place... BOTH SIDES NEED ANTI-SLIDE! Otherwise, I also have a Klymit X pillow - What a Mismatch!!! awful. The pillow and the pad are a mismatch to the patterns and so the pillow is CONSTANTLY sliding off the pad - 10 - 12x or more a night, not a restful sleep !!! Two HIGHEST ESSENTIALS - Enough water and restful sleep! I mean ALMOST EVERY pad in the company has the same air channel pattern... a pillow pattern, possibly, to mate better to this common pad pattern might be a good design ??? Bueller ??? not particularly happy with the combo - one will have to go, or both...
Pretty thin and flimsy, It is lightweight as advertised but a little too lightweight if there are any pebbles under you you will definitely feel them. The pad also offers 0 insulation value and is slippery I had it slip out from under me a few times a night. I should have saved my money a bit and got a NeoAir lite.

The only difference between this and the other models is material and width. I've never had trouble feeling anything under other Klymit pads. They're 2.5" think, so those must have been very large "pebbles."
Any chance this pad will get the same upgrade as the insulated one, with flat valves and non-slip treatment?
CasperbAndersen
Definitely interested in the insulated ones!
Hello,
Can someone telle me the size at foots ? I see 51cm at shoulders, but it seem narrower at foot...
Overall a really impressive pad for the price. But I am pretty sick of the valve. It seems like I'm constantly having to wiggle it as I inflate and relate to maintain flow rate. Even at its best, it still feels restrictive and slow compared to thermarest pads I've used.
Think I got a bad one? Or have other people had this complaint?
Other than color, is there any difference between this and the other drop here: https://www.massdrop.com/buy/klymit-v-ultralite-sl-insulated-v-ultralite-sl ? The specs look the same, but this one is labeled "Klymit Static V" vs just "Klymit V" on the other one. This one is also $10 cheaper.

> Their 20d fabric is different but I'm not sure how, looks to be a little lighter, so may be a little less durable?
At least on the specs, the weights are the same, but the fabric on the MD version is labeled as 20d Nylon vs 20d polyester on the Klymit version.
Kihashi
I followed up with Klymit and another difference between the fabrics is that ours is ripstop and theirs is not (which would explain why there pad is a little bit lighter).
I own the insulated version of this and there is some resistance when inflating/deflating. Is it the same for this version?
nice idea but won't be buying 1 yet because; 20d nylon??? great please DO save weight and cost but not @ expense of having to baby one's gear. too narrow for my sasquatchian big sexy. airpads leak,rip, etc. WHEN will someone figure out how to give a closed cell pad an air option on top??? middle of the bush i'll keep my closed cell KNOWING i'll be comfy especially if no pine bows or moss/peat/thick thatch around. carcamping? why the hell wouldnt you bring the king size guest bed??? long term 'dirtbags' said on ALL hard surfaces it did nothing and was painful. make it wider while keeping weight and price down and i can see huge sales to winter wonderland wanderers...

should make it mateable to another pad too...
I used this pad extensively during the summer. Here’s my review after 4 months, 700+ trail kms.
Weight and packed size is the winning attribute here. So incredibly light and packs down smaller than a nalgene. For comfort, on a scale of 1-10, I give this a 5. Personally, I’m not a fan of the baffles. I can really feel them, even through my sleeping bag. Also very slippery. I’d slide right off the pad often if I was unlucky enough to not find a totally level site. Even slight unevenness. Which lead to lots of waking during the nights for adjustments.
Finally, my biggest issue with this pad is that after a couple months use the air is now very slowly escaping during the night. Which is a huge bummer. Woke up almost on the ground the other night. I submerged the pad to try to find a pin hole somewhere maybe, but I couldn’t. Which leads me to believe it’s the crappy twist valve that is wearing out.
With all the said, I’d still recommend this pad for its size and weight. Just be aware of the few downsides and possible valve issues.

Thank you!! I’ll reach out to them. Thanks for the reply. ✌🏼✌🏼

Here is a valve repair video, using super glue (you're probably thinking what I was thinking...), apparently from Klymit themselves. YMMV of course. I'm not recommending anyone do this but I have not experienced any negatives myself.
I did this on my older Klymit pad as insurance against leaks.

Update on shipping please... Estimated original ship date 08/29/17. It is now 09/05/17???
why is massdrop selling older models without the full features of the newer models like the flat valves and non-slip coating? if I had known, I would have waited. This is not a good practice. How would an uninformed person know? I'm disappointed.
Very disappointed with pad... There is a defect in the manufacturing of the product and it slowly leaks air. I am hoping I can get a replacement pad from Massdrop.

I'm also having this issue.. Have to re-inflate multiple times a night.
When i got all three of the various models from massdrop, each one a massdrop branded one i think. I blew each one too high pressure and left it for a week. Not one had a noticeable difference in that time. I have to say that the screw valve ones were near impossible to get to my usual higher pressures.
Anyone know if its the screw type ore the twist and and pull type valve? I finally used my klymit pillow and wowzerz i hate that screw type valve.

Well all that thought for nothing, refunded due to backorder. So sad... Seems klymit is a source of disappointment here at massdrop.

Are you ever getting back the insulated ultra light massdrop klimate pad?
Blkrose5150
The new model it's only insulated. The new model has dual flat valves, anti slip coating under the torso, and comes in three sizes. It should be available again in the next week or two. We won't make the insulted certain again with this regular valve, just the uninsulated. Thanks for asking.
DannyMilks
In the next week or two! Wooohoooo!
How about Massdrop do a custom, lighter version of the Insulated Hammock V? The current Klymit version is ripe for some Massdrop improvements :)
Looks like this is different from the dual valved pads. Anyone knows which valve type works better ? (btw, standard Klymit valves seem to be different form both these valve types.)
I have used this roughly 5 nights and it has a hole in it already. Nothing worse than waking up on the ground with a nearly new pad deflated underneath you... Anyone else had this experience? Massdrop - is there anything we can do here?
Mine was the uninsulated version.

Totally understand and agree with you. What is concerning is that this pad has only been used in a clean tent, a handful of times. I don't over inflate and I don't weigh a million pounds, so I am really racking my brain to find a reason for it deflating other than 'manufacturing defect'.
Again - I totally get your point. This is my 3rd pad in as many years and I am just getting tired of buying them!
astamp
Hopefully they didn't have any manufacturing issues with coating uniformity or thickness. Punctures are a hassle but at least they're fixable.
this pad is now available direct from klymit in a bright blue.

Yeah but our ideas are making themselves permanent additions to klymits line up, that says a lot about klymit i think.
z80cowboy
I think Klymit found out it is more profitable te sell a pad for 100 USD rather than 60 USD. The beauty of the pad was the fact that it offered the same the expensive pads did, being half their price. Now I'm not really interested anymore.
It's august already.... still no pads
when this product insulated pad available again?

Pad arrived today and the top that screws onto the valve is cracked. It won't hold air like this. Ugh!

Actually its happened to me too. In home conditions. The difference between 75D from the klymit version and 20D from the massdrop/klymit version is big.
Very responsive...thanks! The replacement worked like a charm. :)
Item arrived but doesn't hold air. Now to pay return shipping for a DOA item.
Load 1 more comment
I agree - a DOA item needs to be dealt with at the manufacturers cost. It is not the same as an item that has failed after use.
I was told by Klymit that they do not do any returns or replacements for this item. Their actual advice was "well you can iron the edges" Yea, I'll get right on that. Completely useless support from them. No offer of a better item or anything, just that they can "repair" it for me at my expense.
Thankfully for me Massdrop support came through. I contacted them as a next step and they have shipped a replacement to me. I suppose if they had no stock left I would have been out of luck. I have not received the replacement yet, but they did not charge me and in my case did not require me to return the original pad.
I hope this helps any others with similar questions

That's great of Massdrop! Sorry to hear about Klymit however.
Got the insulated version a while back, so I just thought I'd throw my two sense in for those considering it. One concern of mine was that it would be too narrow, but I've never had the space to splay out anyways so that's never been an issue. I'm about 5'11 165lbs, and it fits my body well so long as I'm laying straight. It packs down to a really decent size compared to all my friends pads, and also blows up quicker. Despite having a great R value, you can still get cold spots in some pressure points because it inflates somewhat thin actually. I usually fix this by laying flat on my back. It's only ever been an issue when sleeping on snow though, which might not be common for others. The patch kit it comes with is a lifesaver. Naturally, my first night out with it was winter camping and I discovered a rip somewhere. Without the patch kit I would have been in pretty big trouble considering the temperatures. I also used it with my EE top quilt the other day out hammock camping, it fit well with the quilt and did a good job for an over night hang, when the bottom quilt would have been too big to pack. Overall I'd say for the price it was a great buy!
Never seem to be able to get the insulated version. Are there just like a handful of these every drop?
indialogue
Same ... Are people buying multiple ones or is it just 1 per customer ?

you can bid on these at ebay directly from klymit- somewhere in a massdrop discussion there were specific instructions- i got an insulated lite pad this way for less than massdrop was selling, plus free shipping-
I hate being a debbie-downer, but for the Costco members out there, Klymit pad AND pillow is available there for a great price. Love Massdrop, but this drop isn't as good of a deal. https://www.costco.com/Klymit-Static-V2-Sleeping-Pad-with-X-Pillow.product.100292232.html?catalogId=10701&langId=-1&storeId=10301&krypto=dHD1kiGlRxo3xodm37ysAeMeAZGaFB%2BCBihfAKmip2tm0WCxfcSbMLhoQU1Jqg0eujVXjM8f17oi%0AASXahQ3392%2BKJ%2BMBcu%2BKFiglWkv5HiU%3D

I will let you do the weight comparison between the two pads and decide what the value of an ounce is.
The x-pillow drops here for $15 so for $5 more plus shipping you save 4.3 ounces but have a 3" narrower pad. $1 per ounce of you can live with the width is fantastic value for weight reduction.
GCG5
These are two different models of the Klymit Static V. The one here is the Ultarlight and only weighs 11.9 oz at the same R value as the Costco one which weighs 16.33 oz. So you are paying for a large reduction in weight
I was just notified that this the delivery is delayed until June 30th!!!! I paid the extra fee for expedited shipping because I NEED this pad for my JMT hike beginning ON June 30th!!! Please cancel my order and refund me the purchase price AND the expedited (which turns out is not expedited) shipping charge. I must have a new pad before my hike, and I'll need to go elsewhere....

I think you've post in the wrong drop. The new version is the MxK Ultralight V Pad, which is being produced right now for delivery at the end of June. That's the one with the flat valves and comes in 3 sizes. The Original Version (this drop) is available in an uninsulated and insulated version, and ships about two weeks after the end of the drop. You can check out the new version here: https://www.massdrop.com/buy/massdrop-klymit-ultralight-v
If you need to switch your order of the new version and get the original version with a ship date this month, go to your transaction page and submit a request to our customer service.
I have an unopened Klymit Static V Insulated pad from the last drop that i'm looking to sell for price paid of $72.65 + shipping to anywhere in the US. I went with a hammock and just ordered the Klymit hammock pad so I don't need this one.

I'll take the pad. Email sent.
