2011 Sneak Peak: Cosmo Air and PIllowtop 2P

Sneak Peaks are back and we are starting off with the king of comfort. This is a personal favorite for me. It's not hard to guess from the name that this new pad is essentially our ultra comfy Cosmo Air and Pillowtop, built for two.

But here's the surprise - Instead of the pad just being double wide, 2P utilizes two Cosmo Air sleeping pads and integrates them into one seamless full size pad (50" wide) so you still have the option of using just the two lightweight sleeping pads when you are carrying your home on your back (or boat, bike, moto, etc.)

The whole shindig is covered with an inch of cushiony foam and another wedge of foam to fill in that annoying crevasse between the pads. Then topped off with a washable microfiber cover. Same great integrated foot pump and dump valves in the Cosmo Airs as last year.

I've been testing it mostly on the car camping circuit, but noticed the other night that it makes a super handy travel mattress on a friend's wooden floor. (WAY more comfortable than an air mattress...but that's just my opinion.)

The whole system comes in a little under 8 lbs.

Stay tuned for the next installment.
