Step 5:

Finished pad laying out.jpg
The finished project ended up with a pad around 6'x23" with a rolled up width of a 11". 

I went to Wal-mart and picked up two 4' straps to keep the pad together and be able to attach it to my backpack.

I have not had a chance to take it out on any extensive test but overall it look like it will last for a while.

This is my first instructable so any advice and input will be greatly appreciated.

It looks warm, but how much does it weigh? Weight is so critical if you are backpacking. I have a Thermarest I got from Campmor for $20. In the winter, I just add an extra layer (emergency blanket works well) for insulation.
