The site says they are out of stock and will ship when they are available.May 10, 2011 at 4:39 pm #1735147
That link goes to what I believe is the women's version, which can be detrimental if they're insulation mapping is substantially different. In any case, it's the short version. Thanks though.May 10, 2011 at 5:49 pm #1735183
Amazon confirmed my order, the pad will be on my hands on may 12, when i place the order there was only 6 in stock. i was hunting this pad for several days, time to replace my BA Clearview.
p.d: excuse my english.May 10, 2011 at 7:20 pm #1735211
From the specs for the women's version vs the regular, the women's is 1oz heavier at 15oz and shorter as well.
I'm thinking the women's version probably has a higher R-value. This would account for the extra weight and is appropriate since women tend to sleep colder than men, thus making it gender specific (Also the POE site says they use "bio mapping" in the foot region). So anyone picking this up, you're most likely getting a warmer but heavier pad than the regular.May 10, 2011 at 7:53 pm #1735217

I checked Amazon for a size regular a month or so ago and had go the "notify me when available" routine. A couple of weeks later they emailed me that there was no expected in stock date and that my order was being canceled. I found one at Sportsman's Guide of all places, was delivered maybe 5 days after I ordered it in spite of a 3 week expected ship date they warned of. More $ though.

well, Amazon send the tracking number. the package is on the way :)May 11, 2011 at 8:21 am #1735332
I got an email that my order (should be regular size 20x72x2.5) shipped for $64.53. So we shall see what arrives.May 11, 2011 at 8:48 am #1735340
Can you send the link to the regular? I don't see it on there, just the women's. I am looking for the long, actually.May 12, 2011 at 5:47 pm #1735966
Received just today from Amazon. It only weighs 11.8oz (334g)!! which is great since I thought it was going to be 14oz (which is what is says on the box). I hope they didn't forget to put in some of insulation. I haven't inflated it yet, but it has some panels on one side on the inside, it feels like.May 13, 2011 at 9:53 am #1736156

I exchanged my neoair trekker for one of these pads in a size regular. I haven't tried sleeping on it yet, it feels a lot smaller though. it does way significantly less thoughMay 19, 2011 at 2:06 pm #1738667
Timing could not be better; I am going out later today for an overnight to play with all my new toys, and when I got back from shopping a few minutes ago it was on the front porch. Pad only (no stuffsack, cinch strap or repair kit) is 10.45 oz on my scale; I am also wondering if some of the insulation was left out. I just emailed POE to ask if they know why the difference between the weight and the specs on their site.
Will report back tomorrow on comfort when I've had a chance to sleep on it.

Here's my reply from POE customer service when I asked whether my lighter than specs pad was a 2nd, or what…
This is accurate.
Our Peak Elite AC pads are lighter than originally planned.
The reason for this is our original weight is from a sample piece. Once this item was put into production it is even lighter which is a nice surprise. No it is not missing anything. There is always a slight variation from pad to pad. We have been seeing pieces from 10 oz. to 12 oz. with a mean of about 11.5 oz for the 'regular' length. So for the Petite length you should be a little lighter than that. Which you are.
So your pad is exactly where it should be.
If you have any more questions feel free to contact me.

I got a long one from backcountry edge. Feels pretty comfy and it only weighs 12.5 oz! A bit under spec.May 31, 2011 at 9:44 am #1743117
For those that are interested, I weighed 3 sizes, and got the following results. Note: weights are only for the mattress, without the stuff sack and repair kit
3/4 length: 9oz
72" regular length: 10.8oz
Womens Petite 66": 11.4ozJun 2, 2011 at 6:48 pm #1744223
no longer on sale and only the women's regular in stock.Jun 2, 2011 at 6:59 pm #1744228
This news is not helping my headache. I was about to buy one.Jun 3, 2011 at 10:13 pm #1744749
I just ordered from there. Oh wait, maybe I ordered the last one because it's out of stock. Well, if they keep the same price, it may be cheaper than Amazon depending on where you live and your Amazon membership. The pad on Amazon would have cost me $63.55 shipped. The pad from ebikestop was $67.94 shipped to California.
Their system allowed me to place an order, but apparently they don't do a very good job of inventory control because it was back ordered. I'm cancelling my order with ebikestop.Jun 4, 2011 at 5:47 pm #1744967
Amazon has the regular in stock again, and it's a dollar cheaper now.
Now if only they would get the long in stock.
