Plus 1 for Jack's

One thing to note, at least for Jack's, is they have different two different stiffness levels of foam. The stiffer foam is in their thinner pads. The softer foam is in the thicker pads. My pad that is 2" thick does not roll up nearly as small as my gf's paco which is a 3.5" (I think?) foam.

That being said, based on densities, I'm not convinced the thicker foam will last longer w/ regards to breakdown. And for my own preferences, I much prefer the thinner, more dense pad.

I recently sold a paco on here from Jack's that I had well over 1000 nights on. It's all I used for sleeping on- rafting and at home (no bed) on the floor (or in the yard, or in the back of the station wagon, or..). The foam was fine when I sold it.

Good to know, for myself, that they'll do other valves. I would like something that is beefier/last longer, and won't get caught on so much stuff.

After reading that the Landing Pads are not made in the States...I wish I would have done a little more research before buying. Rest assured, my next pads will be Jack's Plastics!!

Wear shoes in the Safety first, then teamwork.
