Rocksolid guarantee

Shop with confidence. If it’s not working out, you can return it (consumables, electronics, undergarments and swimwear excluded).
Really. If it's not up to snuff after you use it (a couple times) you can still bring it back. It lasts longer than 30 days, but not forever. We'll be fair about it.


Designed for times when weight and durability are paramount. The Switchback pad offers a comfortable night’s sleep with no risk of punctures or leaks. Dual-density foam and a reflective inner surface help keep you comfortable and warm. It uses a nesting-node design for extreme packability – and it's 1.5x thicker than its direct competition.

  • Dual-density Axiotomic™ foam balances comfort and support
  • Metalized insulating layer radiates heat back up to your body and protects you from the cold ground
  • Insulative layer makes it a great foundation for your main sleeping pad in extreme cold
  • Foam nodes nest into the opposite panel’s divots, which helps it pack down smaller and be 1.5x thicker than pads of similar weight
  • Folding panel design makes set-up as easy as laying down a towel at the beach
  • Rated for temperatures from -7 to 2°C
  • Covered by Nemo’s lifetime warranty
