Gear Review: Klymit Intertia O Zone Sleeping Pad

A couple of years ago I did a review on the Klymit Inertia X-Frame, an extremely lightweight, packable sleeping pad. In January I bought the new version, the O-Zone. It has more coverage, but is only 2oz heavier (11oz) and only slightly larger when packed. 

As my friends get winded filling up their full size sleeping pads I laugh as I blow up my pad in 5-7 large breaths. There's a pillow that's attached but blows up separately in 2-3 breaths. I like to keep the pad in my sleeping bag. I find it keeps me warmer and I don't ever "fall" off of it in my tossing and turning.

This is how small it packs, only slightly larger than a 12 oz soda can. 

When you want to go lightweight but still be comfortable, this is a great option. When I car camp I do use it in tandem with a basic Thermarest for the feeling of being in a queen size memory foam bed....

So, if you don't like spending 10 minutes and 300 breathes filling up your sleeping bad check out the Klymit Inertia O-Zone! ($99)

I've worked all over her globe with a diverse set of clients that offer a diverse set of challenges; every one of them a learning opportunity. Whether I'm hanging off a frozen waterfall shooting ice climbing or in a studio working with a model I am adapting, learning, and improving. I've created a mobile studio in the middle of a wild adventure race in southern Patagonia and fought with monkeys to keep my grapes in southern India. Whatever the challenge I will get the shot.

With my photography background firmly formed in the commercial advertising arena, I bring that attention to detail and technical process to adventure photography. And I've spent my entire life adventuring, so I can get any angle you can imagine.

I feel very fortunate to live in such a beautiful place as Boulder, CO. When I'm not shooting for clients I'm out climbing rocks or frozen waterfalls, or cruising down in the backcountry on my skis.
