Klymit Inertia X-Frame – Worlds Most Packable Camping Pad

Klymit Inertia X-Frame Pad Packed

There are few backpacking gear at the Outdoor Retailer that created more buzz than the new camping pad from Klymit, the Inertia X-Frame Pad. It’s certainly the weirdest looking one I’ve ever seen because it seems like a camping mattress with some parts missing. I probably wouldn’t even recognize what it is if it wasn’t in an outdoor fair.

The design of the pad not only makes it really light (9.1 oz) but it also helps you keep warm by reducing the compaction of sleeping bags, lessening conductive heat loss and capturing body heat in the dead air space. It acts like a camping cot to lift you up off the ground for more warmth if you use it together with a standard camping mattress.

The Klymit Inertia X-Frame pad provides cushioning where it is needed the most while your other body parts are kept off the ground. I don’t move much when I’m sleeping and can sleep well on my back so the pad could work really well for me. I’m not sure if it’ll work for those who sleep on their side or move a lot.

It only takes about 5 breaths for the average person to fully inflate the Inertia X-Frame and small pump is included in case you need to top it up. It packs so small (about the size of bottle of coke) you can put it inside your pants pocket.

The top of the pad is made of 30D Ripstop Nylon and the bottom is made of durable 75D Polyester.

It’s expected to cost $99.95 when it comes out hopefully in November.


Now available at Klymit.

  1. Hey there! Just saw this and noticed that you swiped my photo of the Klymit X Frame rolled up in my hand from http://www.utahoutside.com

    I certainly don’t mind you using it, but if you could simply give credit where credit is due, I’d appreciate it.

    A link back to http://www.utahoutside.com wouldn’t hurt either. :)


  2. I’m sorry for not having done it sooner. I’ve also added a link to your site @ http://outgear.posterous.com/outdoor-retailer-2010-summer-market-klymit-va and also a couple of other sites.

    Thanks for the photo Jared. The next time I steal your photo, I’ll be sure to put a link to your site.
