Yeah this is what I thought as well, she says its been used once for a short trip, so its quite strange considering. I am on a budget trying to get a sleeping pad thats comfortable, would you think this would be worth my while?

Could very well be. Are you able to go physically check it out?
Bear in mind a new K-Way self-inflating compact mattress costs R399

there are varying opinions as to whether it should be used inside or outside the sleeping bag.

Upgraded from a foam mat to a K-way compact "self-inflating", so I have no experience with mattresses. Opinions please, which is better, inside or outside the sleeping bag?

this comment was specifically for the Klymit X-Frame Recon, which is a lot narrower and has 'loft pockets'. With self-inflating pads, I'd say outside the sleeping bag.

I'm just throwing it out there, but wouldn't your (regular) self inflateable be warmer inside you sleeping bag provided you have a groundcover/foam matress on the outside?

I'm not sure most self-inflating/blowup pads would fit inside a sleeping bag.
