Ortlieb Mattress / Sleeping Pad

Anybody have any experience with Ortlieb's sleeping pads? I just purchased one and have so far been impressed with the level of comfort, the lack of sleeping-bag-slippage, and its fairly light weight. I haven't yet taken it out for more than one night at a time.

Anybody else used one of these?

I've got one. Really good, and seemingly impervious to puncture - especially when compared to Thermarest.

I went for the "Classic". I wanted full length and at least a moderate amount of padding but didn't want it to be too bulky. I like that it's waterproof, but I'm still undecided as to whether I'll really leave it exposed to the elements on my rear rack when I go biking. It would be handy not to have to bring a big dry bag... Thoughts?
