Small Packing

Who said sleeping pads have to be big and bulky? This full-size sleeping pad packs up to about the size of a water bottle and weighs just 14.5 oz (411 g).

Toss this in your pack (it fits great in a water bottle pocket) and ensure you always have extra comfort regardless of where you end up for the night. This sleeping pad excels at hammock camping but is also fantastic if you need to take your setup to the ground or just want a little extra cushion for sitting around.

Big Comfort

Despite its small size and weight, when inflated, this sleeping pad brings an impressive full 2-inch loft. The grid pattern keeps an even distribution of air and provides much-needed flexibility when being used in a hammock.

Sleeping pads in a hammock provide additional comfort as well as warmth. By spreading out the hammock fabric slightly, the squeezing effect of a hammock is reduced. A highly conformal pad like the Junco Sleeping Pad moves and bends with the hammock, ensuring you see only benefits and no wrinkly downsides.

Easy Use Valve

We've all been there, sitting on the ground, pinching that little valve stem, waiting for all the air to rush out. Then you go to roll up the pad and realize there's still trapped air, so now you're laying on the ground pinching a valve...

Well, the Junco Sleeping Pad has none of that hassle. This simple valve features an easy-to-use seal flap. To inflate, simply blow air into the hole. To momentarily deflate, push the black rubber flap inwards. To fully deflate, simply pull the black flap outwards.

No more pinching, no more waiting, no more trapped air.

Hammock Friendly

Inflatable sleeping pads can be somewhat hazardous to hammocks due to the sometimes sharp heat-sealed edges. We've gone out of our way to ensure the edges on the Junco Sleeping Pad are as soft and gentle as possible.

The last thing you want to worry about after a long hike is the safety of your sleeping setup. This sleeping pad is completely safe to use in any hammock.

Actually Designed for Hammocks!

Finally was able to test this pad out over three recent canoe trips. I’m no ultralight backpacker, but I’ve been able to dial in my canoe camping kit down to about 20lbs, thanks to the Hummingbird hammock pad. Being able to long-portage the canoe with my full kit (pack, PFD, paddle and fishing gear) has been a long-running goal, making those longer portages quite a bit faster (one trip as opposed to three…). I prefer a sleeping pad over an underquilt (handy for those camps without trees!) and I’ve been stuck with a double hammock (not UL) because my other sleeping pads are squarish and the inflation cell designs do not conform to a single UL hammock. Now that I’ve found the Hummingbird pad, I can pack the single UL hammock. The pad is lighter as well, so I managed to shave almost a full pound off base kit weight. The R value is a bit less than my other pads, but I was comfortable down to 40°F during the recent 5 day trips I’ve completed (800fill quilt, Dyneema fly). During colder trips I’ll likely switch back to the insulated pads and the larger hammock, but pack weight matters less (heavier/bulkier clothing and gear) during late Fall/early Winter. The Hummingbird pad flexes and conforms to the single hammock shape and (mostly) stays in the hammock. It’s comfortable, it’s quiet and inflates/deflates quickly. It packs a bit smaller as well, although it’s weight, not space, I’ve tried to dial down. Overall I’m extremely satisfied and I slept great (maybe “I Slept Great” should have been the review title?).
As I previously hinted at, the pad does seem to slip out of the hammock- especially once I start rolling around a bit (side sleeper) and as my body sinks into the center of the hammock during the night, the pad seems to slip up out of the bottom. This is an issue I’ve had and pondered about in the past, and I have some half-baked ideas about a sleeping pad pouch/retainer sewn into the head and foot of the hammock to keep the pad in place regardless of movement while sleeping. That, or possibly some sort of slip-resistant coating on the bottom of the pad (or matching velcro strips?). I’m no engineer but I think there’s a design solution in there somewhere. My stop-gap measure is to tie the bottom two gear loops on the hammocks edge together- creating a pocket- which has worked fairly well.
There is a slight deflation of the pad over two nights staying in the same camp site twice. Not a big deal to pop a couple of breaths in every day or two, but I would forget and wake up with less pad (and insulation). Not sure if it’s a valve issue, or just a normal thing? The pad is also not as durable as my other pads (various brands), but it really just belongs in a hammock (probably not designed for the rigors of ground sleeping) and I see no reason why it won’t last me many years of Great Sleeping (like that capitalized emphasis?).
Summed up- I have been delighted to have found this gem of a sleeping pad, and it has had a direct impact on my kit weight and portageability (that really should be a word) without sacrificing comfort or much warmth. It only took 4 weeks to become a mainstay in my base pack which has been carefully dialed in over the past decade or so. Longer trip canoe camping adds a little logistical fun into the mix, and the Hummingbird pad really made a difference. I highly recommend this well designed piece of kit for any hammock camper (even those poor souls without paddles…)!

I like the weight and find it reasonably comfortable but Not enough R value for my needs. I will be camping in the Quetico and expect the temps
To be 50 or even 40 at night. I got chilled at 50 using this pad. Also not wide enough to insulate the shoulders. I have the Puffin underquilt but find it bulky and the main shock cord broke the first time I used it. Can that be replaced? I have both the single and double nest and like the double best for camping. I also have your rain fly with doors that I love.

I have only used Junco sleeping pad once but it was quite comfortable! And at 14oz it's probably the best value out there for a full length pad. Exactly what I was looking for. Cheers
