Some of us prefer to sleep on a pad that does not fit into the pad holder of a Gossamer Gear pack. With that in mind we now offer the SitLight ultralight camp seat. Designed specifically to be used in the pad pocket of any Mariposa, Gorilla, G4 or Murmur pack. This multi-use featherlight pad will give structure to your pack, cushion your back and allow some air to circulate between you and the pack while keeping the pack body close to you. The SitLight can also be used to sit on in camp or during breaks, to lengthen your existing sleep pad or as a base for your pillow.

The foam is amazingly light and strong for its density. The pads are tough, flexible and resilient, and exhibit good UV stability. As a closed-cell foam they will not absorb water.

  • Good comfort to weight ratio

  • Convoluted ("egg crate") shape on one side for maximum comfort

  • Solid foam doesn't lose shape over time

Great Multi-purpose item!Review by Philip Werner
I use the sit light that comes with my Mariposa Backpack as a sit pad, especially when the ground or rocks are wet or cold, and a "porch" a night with my tarp. It can also be used as a back pad for Wilderness First Aid to insulate a patent from the ground. I love the fact that its part of my backpack and I don't have to carry an extra pad with me.

Great item, but need help with sizingReview by Julie
It would be very helpful in the description of these pads, to explain which size pad works for which size backpack. I.e.: the medium fits a small kumo and a medium Mariposa, etc.

These pads also come in the Kumo (not mentioned in your description). (Posted on 6/26/14)
