Getting good sleep on the trail isn’t a “bonus” in the backcountry.
It’s absolutely necessary for your mind to be alert and for you to be fully present during your adventures. A comfortable sleeping pad is one of the most important items to help you get the rest you need.
The Oblivion Sleeping Pad is a more comfortable 3 season pad that will help you sleep better in the outdoors without carrying extra weight!
The 3 inch thick tufted I-beam cushion construction will keep your shoulders and hips off the ground whether you’re a side sleeper or if you sleep on your back.
So what about insulation?
Multi-layer reflective insulation gives the pad an R-Value of 3.5 (ASTM R-value Standard) - perfect for 3 season adventures! But we didn’t stop there. We’ve added a reflective top fabric to help you retain as much of your own body heat as possible!
What this means is that you get a sleeping pad that’s warmer, more comfortable, & lightweight! You can sleep better in the backcountry without having to carry extra pounds with you!
Name: Oblivion - this name comes from the concept that the sleeping pad is so comfortable that you’ll be blissfully unaware of the waking world once you lay down to sleep at night. The tufted design, thickness, and 3.5 R-Value all combine to keep you more comfortable on your backcountry adventures!

Oblivion Sleeping Pad Q&A
Oblivion Sleeping Pad Deep Dive
This pad is not what it appears..."ITS BETTER". it felt like I was sleeping at home in my bed. It's not noisy and it's warm perfect width. Wow !! I will be buying this product again. Thank you outdoor vitals.
I have tried a couple of pads and this is by far the best I have. It stayed inflated all night, kept me insulated, and completely off of the ground.
It surprised me how comfortable I slept on this pad given that I'm overweight, over 45, and haven't slept on the ground in over 10 years. Regardless of whether I was on my back, side, or stomach, I was off the ground, warm, and comfy. The only issues is that it's a bit noisy whenever I moved around.
I'm writing this review as a follow-up to a previous review I'd written on this pad. I initially ordered the long/wide version, thinking I'd be more comfortable with the extra width, even though I didn't need the length. I found it to be comfy, but not worth the extra weight & bulk in my pack, so I returned it to exchange for the regular size pad. The exchange process left a lot to be desired in terms of customer service, but I finally received the regular pad in time for my backpacking trip in the Sierra Nevada Mts of CA. As a seasoned backpacker, I know better than to take a new piece of gear on an adventure without a "test-drive" first, but that is exactly what I did in this case. Boy was I ecstatic about this pad!! I left my tried and true ultra-lightweight BA pad at home, and took my new OV Oblivion pad for a 4 day/3 night solo camping experience in the Sequoia Nat Forest where the temps ranged from high 30's/low 40's at night, to mid-60's during the day. The comfort and warmth of the Oblivion was unsurpassed! As a 60 yo side and stomach sleeper, my three highest priorities while backpacking/camping are weight, comfort and warmth (not necessarily in that order). I was ultra cozy, comfy and warm with the combo of my Oblivion Pad + Nemo 15 degree down bag. I enjoyed possibly the best nights of sleep I've ever had in the wilderness! I didn't use the inflation sack because I carry a tiny rechargeable inflator. The only negative I could find with this pad is the difficulty I had with opening the inflation/deflation valves--I have mild arthritis and poor grip strength (due to two wrist/hand surgeries) I found the valves extremely stiff and challenging to open. I would highly recommend this pad!!
warm & conformable, wish there was a reg. wide. That would be perfection
