Klymit Inertia X-Frame Review

  1. OK, I’ve had more opportunities to test out the X-Frame and it just keeps getting better!

    My new preferred setup is using the pad inside of my sleeping bag, ensuring that I don’t roll off or end up misaligned with the support tubes. I highly recommend this method if your shelter has a floor or you can use a groundcloth to protect the bottom of your sleeping bag. If not, it still works great under the bag.

    I’ve also tested it with my Big Agnes Cyclone SL chair kit. It works, but because of the narrower width (18″ rather than 20″) there is less tension from side to side. I will probably stick to using the Cyclone chair in winter when I bring my Big Agnes Insulated Air Core pad instead of my X-Frame. In a pinch, the two will work together but understand that it won’t feel the same as using a larger pad.

    Anyway, this pad is coming with me everywhere.

  2. Rob that is great you are liking the pad. I think you might have me sold after the great review you wrote on it. I think it is time to get one!

    I have had the opportunity now to have spent 10-15 nights on the x-frame pad in wide variety of situations. From Glacier snow to the hardwood floor of my buddies house. It has preformed admirably. For the weight it can’t be beat. It covers all the pressure points perfectly. On snow I put the x-frame in my sleeping bag, and then put my bag on a closed cell foam pad. It worked great! It is very comfortable and light weight, I would recommend this pad to anyone.

    I have wanted to try this pad. After reading this review it will be on my personal gear list for this season for sure.
