5ive Star Gear GI Sleeping Pads have a wide variety of uses. These pads are compatible with all 5ive Star Gear cots, providing a cushioned, comfortable sleeping surface that is resistant to soil and water. When the weather is cold, they use body heat to provide better insulation to keep you warm. Made of polyurethane, these pads can also use their insulating properties to extend the freshness of frozen or chilled items simply by rolling them up inside the pad. The attached tie straps let you roll up the pad securely, making it easy to store and transport. Whatever the purpose, these tough, comfortable pads are great for the outdoors.
