NEMO Switchback Ultralight Sleeping Pad

NEMO Switchback Ultralight Sleeping Pad


Through the magic of science and engineering, the NEMO Switchback ultralight sleeping pad vastly improves on the old closed cell foam roll you have been strapping to your pack for years. It features molded, dual-density Axiotomic™ foam hexagonal nodes to create Hypnoelastic™ zones that conform to your body. What does that mean in English? It translates to more plushness, comfort, support and a smaller packed size than the traditional offerings. The Switchback also incorporates a layer of metalized thermal film to efficiently reflect heat back to your body. Combined with 15% more heat-trapping space, this new innovative design is able to deliver a warmer, more comfortable sleep than other pads in this category. 


  • Highly-efficient, hexagonal nesting pattern allocates more space for taller, wider nodes, providing significantly greater plushness.
  • More precise tooling eliminates wasted space between folded layers, enabling taller nodes to nest tighter for a smaller packed size.
  • Taller nodes create more space for uncompressed sleeping bag insulation, trapping more warmth around your body.
  • Premium dual-density Axiotomic™ foam offers a supple layer for comfort and a resilient layer for support.
  • Metalized thermal reflective film reflects heat back to your body and is protected by a durable film.
  • Axiotomic™ dual-density foam is optimized for well-balanced compression and abrasion resistance.
  • Extremely easy to use, delivers comfort and security on all types of adventuresfrom mountaineering, thru-hiking, or camping on a budget.
  • Folding panel design allows for lightning-fast, easy set up and packing.
  • Use as a standalone pad for ultralight durability and comfort or pair with another pad for extra insulation and comfort in extreme cold conditions.
  • Protected by the NEMO Lifetime Warranty.
