This video by The Late Boy Scout features the Klymit Static V Sleeping Pad. He has previously used it in three or four different car camping trips prior to the review.

The Static V weighs 18.1 oz or 514 grams and its inflated size is 72 x 23 x 2.5 of loft. The surface area is one of the pad’s biggest selling points. Compared to other brands, the Therm-a-Rest Trail Lite is also pretty good, but more expensive and twice the weight. The Static V actually costs $20 less than current versions of the Therm-a-Rest Trail Lite. The newer Klymit Static V2 is 2 oz less and only about $10 more, but potentially less durable.

The Klymit Static V Sleeping Pad utilizes body mapping technology and features the V Chamber design that limits air movement and heat loss while offering a uniquely ergonomic body map optimized for performance and comfort. The dynamic side rails keeps the body centered on the pad all night. It also comes with a stuff sack and patch kit. It takes up a tiny amount of space in the backpack, which is great.

It should inflate with 10 to 15 breaths, but The Late Boy Scout is able to do it in 8 or 9. It’s made of 75 D polyester fabric with an R Value of 1.3. R Value is a resistance to heat transfer. It basically tells you how good of a job it’s going to do at keeping your body heat or keeping the coldness of the ground away from you. It’s not an extraordinarily good R Value, but it’s okay for the size that it is and for the fact that there are no fibers inside it for insulation. An Insulated Static V is also offered for $10 more, providing an R Value of 4.4, but it weighs 25 oz.

Overall, the Static V is a good backpacking sleeping bag. It is affordable, lightweight, unique, and does the job it’s marketed to do.
