Wiggys Ground/Sleeping Pads are unique because the padding is a polyester fiber and not foam. Foam has several faults, such as losing resilience once the temperature drops below 32 degrees, getting hard and retaining moisture. If it is self-inflating and is punctured it becomes useless because the patch kits have never worked.
The exterior fabric of Wiggys Ground/Sleeping Pads is textured, waterproofed 300 denier polyester. It is very similar feel to corduroy. The padding is Densified Polyester Fiberfill. For years, manufacturers of futons have used this fiberfill construction as their padding. I have found that in a 2 inch thickness it works so well that it can be used alone in winter conditions. Most winter campers use two foam pads, but with the Wiggy pad one is all you need. The fiber differs from foam in several respects. The fiber is completely unaffected by water and will inflate without a valve. Two 1 inch web belts are positioned at one end, so you can roll it up tight as possible and cinch it down. The pads are also available as mated sets. Using two separate pads under a mated set of sleeping bags leaves a lot to be desired. They slide away from each person. With the mated set, each side stabilizes the other when movement occurs.
