At the Outdoor Retailer show, Klymit unveiled its new air mat – the Inertia X Frame Sleeping Pad.

The company claims this new future-device weighs just 9.1 ounces and packs down to the size of a soda can. It also looks CRAZY.

I’m jealous of the backcountry types who can sleep on stuff like this. I am a notoriously light-sleeper, leaping to action at the slightest sound, jabbed shoulder, or sliver of sunlight. I have to use heavier air pads like the ExPed Synmats, which usually weigh in at least double the weight of this thing. But cutting weight isn’t worth it if you don’t sleep at night, right?

No pricing info on this little guy yet This will retail at $99.95 in November.
