Ok so I've never used a sleeping pad and have been considering getting one but I just don't know if I believe something that's filled with air and only 1 1/2" thick is gonna make much difference. So I figured I would ask the very folks that have done it both ways.

Is it really worth the space and money, weight isn't a huge issue for me as my trips are only 5 to 10 miles. I'm no gram weenie lol
