At NEMO, we believe a great adventure requires your full self – alert, focused, and enthusiastic about exploring our boundaries and meeting challenges with skill and grace. A solid, restful night of sleep is essential in achieving this higher level of flow.
We’ve been designing sleep systems to propel great adventures for 17 years. We are excited to bring that technology and new innovation to your overnights in the wild, keeping you more comfortable and more rejuvenated.
Choosing the right sleeping pad is a big part of the comfort equation. And thanks to advanced technology, there’s no reason to ever sleep uncomfortably in the backcountry again.
Understanding weight, comfort, warmth, durability, and packed size will help you zero in on the sleeping pad that’s best for you.
A well-designed sleeping pad should become unnoticeable, providing support in all the right spots and allowing your body to feel relaxed and secure. We’ve designed our sleeping pads with patent-pending technology that makes them quieter, plusher, and more stable than any other.
Our goal is that you forget about
your sleeping surface entirely.
“I like the versatility of Switchback. I can use it under my air pair for winter camping and sitting on the cold snowy ground, or in the summer for relief while sitting on rocks.”
“I’m not a hardcore backpacker trying to save every ounce. I love the foot pump on the Vector and am willing to sacrifice a few ounces for this convenience.”
“I’m a side-sleeper, and the 3D contours and greater width of the Cosmo keep me comfortable all night. The foot pump is a really nice feature too.”
” The Tensor Alpine is the most feature rich air pad available today. I never question my choice when I take it on cold weather mountain bike trips to Vermont or a backcountry skiing expedition.”
” Roamer is wicked comfortable — it’s like my bed at home and perfect for weekend trips with my friends. I love the self-inflating aspect as well; I can just relax as the mattress sets itself up.”
“I love Tensor not only because it’s the lightest pad in our line, but also because of it’s versatility. The Spaceframe baffles are amazing, and the convenience of Vortex is nice for a quick inflate.”
“Astro’s 3.5 inches of cushion are great for me as a side sleeper. The price point can’t be beat for such a lightweight pad — I like to take friends hiking so having a second Astro to lend out is perfect.”
“I want a pad that’s going to be easy to setup, since that’s usually my camp duty. The included Vortex pump sack makes inflation a breeze — even being slightly technically challenged, I can inflate this pad in seconds.”
“My family loves to go camping and I love that you can toggle together two Nomads to create a queen-sized mattress.”
Restful sleep is an essential ingredient in preparing you to have the best possible adventure tomorrow. We’ve compiled a list of some of our team’s favorite backcountry sleep tips for you to consider.
