He doesn't say that but he stresses that it's not very comfortable quite often. It might be ok if you only ever sleep on your back but I sure don't. I roll a lot and use a wide pad because the 20" pads made me feel like I was sleeping on a narrow ledge next to a cliff. I also rarely sleep inside my sleeping bag. I use it as a blanket unless it gets really cold so the idea of using the bag's loft in the holes doesn't really work. Also, the tent floor can be damp or even wet and I don't like my sleeping bag touching it. Finally, when things go wrong the sleeping bag/pad is my last line of comfort. I don't skimp on those. I'll take a good night's sleep over a few grams saved.
