Has anybody used the Bullet Inflatables drop stitch sleeping pad?
I am looking for a sleeping pad. I have checked out all the paco type pads that I can but came across the drop stitch version from bullet inflatables. At $179 it is competitively priced and may have some advantages over the other type. Anybody used one and have some feedback? Thanks.

If space is a issue, cool idea, pumping up every night not cool, as a paddle board very cool, as a cold weather pad very very very cool but I'll stick with my self inflating pad for now till I read a great review of one.
Time is like a river. You cannot touch the water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again. Enjoy every moment of life on or off the river.
I've used the drop stitch floor from my IK as a sleeping pad before. inflated soft it works great. these pads are wider than my IK floor, so I'm sure they would work better.
As far as the "R Value" question goes. i'm not sure that it would have a total lack, I mean think of all the stitching that could be considered as material to hold heat. Air is also not the worst insulator out there. But I've never used my IK floor as a pad in cold weather, always spring/summer months.
