While setting up camp under the tarp under the now pouring rain, I realized that part of the pad had absorbed a fair amount of water. I don't know if other pads might be more water resistant. So a sack might be a good idea for trail use, in addition to storage.
    I just ran to Wal-Mart (only like a quarter mile from me) and the pads are advertised at 100% waterproof. That was on ALL of the pads they sell, not just the blue ones.

    That cracked me up when I read it, then today when watching football, I found myself saying those same words.
