So i was comparing the 2 sleeping pads at costco, both klymit. The v2 vs the static v insulated lite. V2 is 16 oz. Staticv il is 19.9. Soo im thinking, theyre the same size, so 3 oz is a decent weight addition to bring the r value up from 1.3 to 4.4 (i suppose?) But then i noticed how they did this was not to simply add 3.9 oz of insulation to the inside, but to thin out the walls of the pad as well (best i could reckon). The v2 is constructed from 75d polyester, while the static v il is only 30d ( rainfly material pretty much). Although i have seen that denier isnt the most helpful, in that oz/yd or thread count can vary even within identical deniers. But that aside, what kind of reduction in durability am i looking at for going with the static v il? (Shorter lifespan? Or just more prone to punctures? Both? Like twice the fragility?-- one burr and its curtains?)

Inflatable sleeping pads are a consumable. The lighter weight/lighter the materials the shorter their useful life. Also the less warm they are. I have a neo air that is very light and one that is not as light, but is more durable. Whenever weight is not a huge factor or I want more r-value the heavier one gets used. If I am car camping or similar I go even heavier. Someone probably has an answer to the % less durable, but I certainly don't. It really comes down to how big a risk you are willing to take to have you pad fail on you. I know of several folks who are no longer klymit users due to durability issues, so I personally would opt for heavier.
