Just finished 25+ days on the Long Trail in Vermont with this pad. I have the 72" paired with the MH Phantom 45 bag. I'm a little over 6'.
This pad is different from other BA pads. It's made of a polyurethane vinyl rather than the standard nylon. I liked this because it would keep my sleeping bag in place, instead of twisting up like a telephone cord that I might otherwise get. It is actually similar to my BA sleep system, minus being tied to the pad if you want to sit up. Also, it doesn't feature BA I-beam construction. It makes the pad a bit more difficult to deflate (I found if I hold it up, roll it down till the chambers fill, fold it over and press air out, then repeating rolling, etc., is the easiest way to deflate) and less stable as far as the chambers rolling on each other, but it also means you have less to blow up. So those negate each other in my opinion.
As far as durability, this pad hasn't shown any issues. Since getting back home, I've washed it and didn't notices any signs of stress. Cleaned up really nicely, and didn't notice much prolonged moisture buildup from blowing it up on a daily basis out on the trail.
I slept really well on this pad, in comparison to others using 3/4 length thermarest pads. I could sleep comfortably on my back, side, or front without a problem. Worked well for temps creeping down into the low 40's and upper 30's at night.
The key with BA pads is to blow them up fully, lay on them, and open the valve. Deflate the pad until you're comfortable or just before you begin to touch the ground. This way you maximize the 2.5" of cushion.

I was surprised at how small and light this bag was shipped. It's less than a pound and takes up the space of a VHS tape. Inflation takes about one minute, while deflation and packing it up takes about five minutes. The material is pretty thin and feels like it could pop easily, but I had no problems sleeping on it twice, and having three people sit on it inside my tent at one time. It's probably pretty durable as long as it's not intentionally punctured. As far as its effectiveness, I slept very comfortably on the ground with a sleeping bag on top. Even sleeping on my side was comfortable. My hips and shoulders never hit the ground. I had doubts about this air pad, but not anymore. Now I don't have to lug around a big and heavy air mattress when camping.

I first saw one of these used on an eight-day ultralight trip and was sure it was going to pop. Much to my surprise, it was actually my beefier, bulkier ThermaRest pad which got multiple holes in it as it was so bulky I had to carry it on the outside of my pack and it got dinged in the trees and rocks. One of the hidden advantages of these pads is that they are so small and compact that you can easily carry them INSIDE your pack, which protects them from getting punctured.
That said, they are pretty fragile, so you have to be careful about setting them up in sharp terrain. I like to pad mine with an empty backpack or some clothing. But, if they do puncture, they are very easy to repair.

My BA Clearview just arrived, so I haven't field tested it yet...but I did want to comment on how thin the material is. It's THIN. Owners of this pad will need to be extra mindful about where this is used and take extra care when handling it in camp. If you use shelters, sweep the floor as best you can because I can see how any small foreign object could puncture this pad if you're not careful. It does not come with a repair kit, so I would highly recommend picking one up from your outfitter (or the pool float section of any major retailer.) I won't be going out without a patch and some cement for this.

This thing packs down to almost nothing and could get lost in your pack! It is a little on the heavy side at 13.5oz with stow sack. I noticed some condensation from my breath after inflating. It could pop with a puncture but the comfort of an air mattress like this blows away an old foam pad!

What a great product!! This pad delivers THE best night's sleep i've ever had in the back country. it is a wee bit heavier than my prior pads but it is well worth the 11 oz. for the excellent night's sleep. i really love the ClearView Air Pad!

Phil at Backcountry.com on 03/06/2009

Crazy light, still 2.5 inches of comfy air. Very thin material; probably won't last as long as others but boy is it light and a whole lot more comfortable than closed cell pads.

Perfect for what i wanted it for, light weight summer pad that takes up next to no space in my pack. Clear, light and cozy. How could you ask for more?

Comfy pad. Could sleep on my side no problem. But, it is only made of thin plastic with no protection around it. I wouldn't trust it on a long trip. Also, there is no insulation. It is simply a blowup air mattress and the cold (or heat if it is the desert) comes right through. So, for a fair weather trip and if you bring something to patch it, it is a very comfortable lightweight option.

I went through 2 of these. They are amazingly small and light but once the welds give (both of mine had this issue) there's no repairing them.
They are awesome but kind of disposable.
