Due to the ‘wings’ (shall I call them) the pad ends up being 47 inches (119cm) wide, which puts this pad into the realm of, well, wide.
MSRP for the ‘Hammock V Pad‘ is $139.95
The bottom side (underneath) of the pad appears to have two plugs, which is typical of pads this size. I wonder if these are one way plugs or if Klymit has leased the rights to use the S2S two-way air plugs (‘multi-functional valve’ I think they like to call them these days), which honestly, every company that makes air pads should just do, they really are nice.

And really, the only question left is… who is going to be the first to buy one of these and see how they work on the ground as a side sleeper pad. Not me, I got enough air pads these days, but if you do give one of these a try on the ground, and are a side/fetal sleeper, I would love to hear how it works for you!
This is obviously intended for hammocks… but I have a question (as somebody that has owned two bridge hammocks, but is far from a hammock guy)… I thought gathered end hammocks were suppose to be slept in at an angle. (??) This pad is going to cause that aspect of gathered end hammocks to go wonkers on you right? Anybody got thoughts on this issue they would care to share? I am, admittedly, rather ignorant (uneducated) when it comes to such things in the hammock world.
