While it may be on the almost-heavy side of sleeping pads these days, the pure luxurious comfort of the Evolite has made it a fairly popular sleeping pad for the given weight (slightly over 1 pound) category it exists within.

Derek mentioned in a follow-up comment that he was going to give it a try and I asked if he would email me some photos of how it went.

Two days later he emails me the photos you see within this article!
