Our Klymit Lifestyle

Frequently Asked Questions

Pads must be cleaned regularly in warm water and hung dry. For particularly dirty pads mix 2 cups of warm water with 1 tablespoon of baking soda and wipe down with washcloth. Rinse well. Do not use any detergents, even natural detergents. Do not put in washing machine. Close valve before washing. Pads that are not washed well will not qualify under our warranty policy.
Body mapping allows Klymit to make the lightest and most compact pads also the most comfortable, as they are designed around the human anatomy. See our Technology page for more information.
The cut outs are called loft pockets.  They increase warmth while decreasing weight.  They also allow for a breathable pad on a hot summer night.
Loft pockets are the cut out portions of Klymit camping pads.  They allow you to capture the warmth of your sleeping bag underneath you for the first time.  Rather than having a big, heavy, bulky camping pad for warmth, Klymit pads give you more warmth at a miniscule weight.
Klymit Inertia pads do not have an r value because they use the warmth from your sleeping bag.  If you have a sleeping bag that is rated to 35 degrees, then you can use any of our Inertia camping pads at that temperature.
Klymit provides the best patch kit in the industry.  It gives you several patches with the actual fabric of the pad.  For an article and video of how to use the patch kit click here.  We also stand behind our products with a limited lifetime warranty.

First let all of the air out of the pad (you may have to do a quick roll to push some leftover air out). Then fold the pad in quarters lengthwise and roll it up from the bottom. This will make it very easy to fit back inside of its stuff sack. For a video of this process, click here.
No, most users prefer the pad softer than fully mouth inflated.
A stuff sack, patch kit, (and bulb pump are included for the pads that use them).
The dry air pump is for those who prefer a firmer sleeping surface.  You can pressurize the pads to your comfort preference.
All Airbeam Frame Sheets are built slightly larger than the intended pocket on purpose, by folding down the top of the frame sheet under the velcro, it adds a slight curve to the lower part of your back for extra comfort and allows the Airbeam Frame sheet to hold the backpacks weight better.
The beauty of the Airbeam Frame Sheet is that is is fully customizable to your level of stiffness. However, as a general rule most people like somewhere between 50-70 pumps.
