HuntScore Tip

Public land and private land percentages can sometime be misleading. A unit may have 80% public land, but a particluar species may only occupy 20% on the entire area. And that 20% species distribution may lie 100% within private lands. Does that sound confusing? Just remember that there are always exceptions to the rule, and land ownership is just one piece of the puzzle.

Introducing a whole new idea when it comes to Sleeping Pads, the Klymit Armored V Sleeping Pad is a game changer.300,000 precisely positioned, armored SuperFabric scales cover the entire underside of the Armored V, creating a wicked tough barrier that resists punctures, slashing, moisture and abrasion. The scales are strong enough to perform in the most demanding and rugged terrain and are flexible enough to fold and roll for compact storage.Comfortable:Body Mapping Technology: Our specially developed V-shaped design delivers superior support and comfort no matter how you sleep - on your side, stomach or back.Side Rails: Integrated into the patterning and construction, side rails help provide a secure, comfortable sleep by centering you on the pad and inhibiting air movement while tossing and turning.Deep Weld Patterning: Unlike traditional pads that flatten the bag's fill, Deep Welds create expansion zones that allow your bag to fully loft beneath you for improved thermal comfort.Twist-Pull Valve: Secure and simple, our valve allows for inflation in as few as 10 breaths, and opens wide for rapid, complete deflation. The mechanism creates a secure seal and helps prevent inadvertent openingPack Size: Exceptionally compact, the 5.5"x 9" pack size is tiny compared to closed-cell foam or self-inflating pads with the same footprint, R-Value and thickness.Rugged:Rugged Material: The 100D Armored Nylon Superfabric provides superior tear, puncture and abrasion resistance for minimal weight.Patch Kit: Included for emergency repairs, a patch kit comes stored in a small integrated pocket on the top of the pad's storage bag - already packed and always at hand.Storage Bag: A storage bag, sized specifically for your pad, is included to maintain compactness and provide protection while traveling.Anti Microbial Laminate: A treatment permeates the inside laminate to inhibit the growth of microorganisms, including fungus and bacteria, that can cause odors and material damage.For an Side-by-Side Comparison of the different Klymit Pads check out our Comparison Chart below:
