Hi, is there a difference between kylmit ultralight V pad, and kylmit static ultra light V pad? If yes, which one is better? Is there a difference with the V2 version?

Speaking of just the Massdrop versions (green colour) (was unsure which you were referencing):
This pad is insulated at an R value of 4.4 at a weight of 17.2 oz (488 g) for Regular. The first generation 'Massdrop x Klymit Static V Ultralight' I hear is no longer going to be offered in an insulated model anymore, just uninsulated at an R value of 1.3 at a weight of: 11.9 oz (337 g). So good weight saving in the first gen (Static V) if warm/hot overnight camping.
This pad version comes with different valves that make inflation and deflation several times faster.
It also comes with anti slip treatment to the bottom.
And has 3 size offerings.
These are the main differences.

Thank you for the reply! So is this one is the better deal regarding price, weight and insulation? (Assuming it's for nights below 0°C) the kylmit static v2 is about the same features? (Just getting lost in all of the pads they have and the more/less recommended)

You're very welcome. :-) There are many models with many similar names so it can get confusing.
Personally I like an insulated pad for night temps at and below 10-15 °C (50-59 °F) (The ground is often colder than the ambient readings). Some put foam under their summer pad to insulate from the ground too.
To clarify: if the pad name has "Massdrop" in the title, then that indicates that it is co-designed and sold exclusively through Massdrop.
Yes it is the better deal if it suits your needs. The only caveat here is a width reduction in the regular and short sizes: 20" (50cm) wide, vs Klymit's standard 23" (59cm). But you can go for the long size here which is 26" wide (66cm) and shorten it to your desired length.
When you're asking to compare it to the "Klymit static v2", are you referring to this? https://www.klymit.com/static-v2.html That has the same physical design but is made of thicker material (so heavier/but sturdier), has no insulation and has a different valve system (slower). Simply put, this is a lightweight winter pad that deploys and packs up quickly. The other is a summer pad which has a very similar weight but not as warm and deploys and packs up a bit slower. But is 3" (9cm) wider.

I ordered the ultralight, it sounds the most cost effective, since it's good for more difficult climate as well with low weight.
