like the item, SV valve is faster than the std valve
I got the large-while I am 6 ft the extra length is nice, the width is a full 25" which allows for movement for a side sleeper such as my self without feeling that I was falling off the pad. I also like the rectangle design verse the mummy pad which I have used for several years it was the NeoAir XLite. The problem with the mummy pad was sore hips, I felt like I was a rotisserie chicken always turning every 15 minutes. My limited experience with the Max pad even through it is the same thickness 2.5 inches, is that I don't turn as often which was not due to hip pain. Not sure if it is the rectangle design, additional length and width, or more air volume but what ever the reason I got a more comfortable night rest. I also think I will like the SV valve for inflating the pad. I purchased the NeoAir mini pump for my previous pad which work out well, but with this concept I will forgo the mini pump and additional batteries. It still takes a few breaths but not as many as with the standard valve. The trade off is NeoAir pad, pump and extra batteries are just a few oz's lighter than the Max SV which at this point is well worth it.
The physical size when rolled up is noticeable larger, than my NeoAir XLite. although one would expect this ie large vs regular, mummy vs rectangle. Thought the SV would work a little better than it has, but understand haven't had a lot of use, per other reviews this should improve with more use ie better process example after a few breaths push the air to the end of the pad, maybe adjusting the blow distance from opening either increase /decrease.
