Recent Closed-Cell Foam Sleeping Pad Reviews

Mammut Alpine Mat UL

rated 5 of 5 stars Great lightweight alternative to Therm-a-Rest!! Have been looking for a lightweight closed cell pad that would give me some extra padding, especially if my inflatable pad failed. My sleep system has been constantly refined over last two years. The Nemo Insulated Tensor is by far the most comfortable, warmest, and best weight advantage in an inflatable pad for me. As a light, cold sleeper, the crinkly noise with Therm-a-Rest simply did not work for me and I've tried literally about a dozen from Exped,… Full review

Equinox Mt. Hood

rated 5 of 5 stars The most comfortable pad I've ever used. The first time I laid down on the Mt. Hood pad from Equinox, I loved it. It is the most comfortable pad I've ever used. I am comparing it to other closed-cell foam pads like RidgeRest (which I had for 20 years), and a no-name pad I got on Ebay. The roll strap that Equinox supplies is of very high-quality and heavy duty, like the pad itself. While the pad is only 20 inches wide, I have not found this to be a problem at all. It is 72 inches long, weighs 10… Full review

Therm-a-Rest RidgeRest SOLite

rated 4 of 5 stars A technologically advanced closed-cell sleeping pad, offering very good warmth and lightweight in this class. Though it is less durable in comparison to traditional pads, and its ridged surface may not be liked by everyone. I’d been using this sleeping pad (in Regular size) from 2013 to 2016. Before and after this one I'd used the traditional closed-cell foam pads with smooth surface. The bulkiness is not a problem for bicycle tours, as the pad always rides outside the bag, and it also makes a… Full review

Dutchware Folding Sit Pad

rated 5 of 5 stars The Dutchware Gear folding sit pad is ultra lightweight, durable, multi-use, and cheap. It provides a lot of basic functionality -- at this weight, size, and price there’s no reason to not carry one. This is a review of the Dutchware Gear folding sit pad. Dutchware sells mostly accessories for camping but also offers a limited selection of shelters, tarps, quilts, and hammocks. I am not affiliated with Dutchware Gear in any way. For the sit pad I paid the current price of $6.75+shipping. Product… Full review

Mammut Alpine Mat UL

rated 4 of 5 stars Very lightweight, relatively warm. A high quality closed cell mat.  R value only 1.2 , but relative to weight that is very high (weighs 135 grams). Packs quite small for a closed cell, and quite versatile, can be used as a seat or as a doubled up short mat (90 cm) with R value 2.4! Update 11/22/2016: After using it a few times I can see it is not very durable. Used it for a bit of yoga, lying down, all in the house. If it touches any hard edge like something on jeans or carpet it will leave a permanent… Full review

Naturehike Egg Crate Style Anti-Moisture Pad

rated 5 of 5 stars This is the NatureHike brand CCF sleeping pad that is comparable to the Therm-a-Rest Z Lite Sol, complete with the aluminum coating on one side. At only $16.83, including shipping, it's a great deal. I held the NatureHike side-by-side with the Therm-a-Rest, and it's the same in all the dimensions, except mine is blue instead of the yellow Therm-a-Rest. I needed a CCF pad, and didn't want to pay $40 for the Therm-a-Rest. I found this one online, and took a chance. It was $16.83 including the shipping. Full review

Ensolite Sleeping Pad

rated 4 of 5 stars Never fails, always works. My trusted blue pad has served me well for decades. It has handled Arizona rocks, thorns, and pokey plants. It worked on a coral rubble campsite in the Florida Keys. Wisconsin winter camping is no problem. This is a well used and essential item for all my camping. I now add a Therm-a-Rest pad on top for extra cushioning, something not needed when I was in my 20s but greatly appreciated now. The dual pad combo provides for a wonderful night's sleep, I even bring a tiny… Full review

Therm-a-Rest Z-Shield

rated 3.5 of 5 stars The Therm-a-Rest Z-Shield is a dense, accordion style, closed cell foam mat. I’d recommend not relying on this as your primary sleeping pad, but it is good for beginners or younger campers. The Z-Shield also could be used as a back support in a frameless pack and comes in handy when a dry or clean place to sit is lacking around the campsite. Testing Conditions I’ve tested it primarily in Florida, but also in North Carolina between mid-October through January. I used the Z-Shield as my sole… Full review

Therm-a-Rest Z Lite Sol

rated 4 of 5 stars Super light. Perfect for thru-hiking. I love this sleeping pad. I used to use an inflatable pad, but opted for this one because it is so much lighter. It's easy to use, won't get any holes, and it is pretty comfortable if you sleep on your back. It has an R-value of 2.6. So it's pretty good and it's cheap. It's durable. It's held up over time and I've even cut a couple corners off of it to use as padding when my shoulder got a nasty blister. I've had it for 8 months and it's in great shape. If… Full review
