Therm-a-Rest RidgeRest Solar

rated 4 of 5 stars The most important thing about backpacking to me is my level of comfort. Most of my time spent on the trail, I'm walking. So the comfort level of walking is most important. The Therm-a-Rest RidgeRest Solar's weight is a crucial piece of the puzzle for helping keep the weight down on my pack and making my time walking as comfortable as possible. I don't mind sleeping on the ground and prefer a firmer pad. This is something one should keep in mind about most closed cell pads amongst the RidgeRest… Full review

Therm-a-Rest Z Lite

rated 5 of 5 stars Great multi-purpose pad! Lightweight and highly recommended! I am a novice when it comes to backpacking, but this was one of my favorite, most useful pieces of gear. Though I use an inflatable insulated sleeping pad to sleep on, I have this for a backup in case my pad fails for one reason or another or if someone with me has an issue with their pad. It is not particularly comfortable to sleep on, I need more cushion personally, but it will keep you warm from the ground. I also have it in case the… Full review

Therm-a-Rest Z Lite

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The pick and go sleeping pad for our adventure. I literally encourage everyone I meet to purchase this pad due the fact in my country it's sold for 30€ at Decathlon. Thru hiker or amateur, you can't go wrong with it. So easy to use, probably the closed-cell mattress! Full review

Big Agnes Third Degree

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is a nice lightweight sleeping pad that packs down relatively well (compared to similar foam pads) and provides excellent insulation. I would not use it as a primary sleeping pad (unless you are used to sleeping on the ground), but to supplement your air mattress in winter, or push your summer mattress into the shoulder seasons if you don’t intend to winter camp. The Big Agnes Third Degree Foam Pad is a very lightweight part of a cold weather sleep system. BA suggests it for supplementing… Full review

Coleman Rest Easy Pad

rated 4 of 5 stars Not as bad as some reviews make it out to be. Just bought a Coleman Easy-Rest blue foam pad. It was $4 at Runnings, when I went back a couple weeks later to get it, it was $9.99. It measures at 71.5"x24"x3/8", 11.5 oz. without packaging (claimed wt. of 8 oz.). Tried it on a very cold concrete garage floor (18°F). It has noticeable R-value (more than expected :-), and no real hard spots, even on my side, I'm 180 lbs. It rolls down to 5 3/4" diameter (non compressed). It cuts 2 lbs off of my current self-inflating… Full review

Therm-a-Rest RidgeRest Solar

rated 5 of 5 stars I would highly recommend this sleeping pad! If you are looking for a sleeping pad used during winter camping, look no further. I am typically a very cold sleeper when I am winter camping. After many nights out using supposedly warm sleeping pads, I finally purchased the RidgeRest. I have not had a cold night since. I have not felt the cold ground beneath me at all, and in fact, the pad seemed to actually be warm (the closed-cell technology, reflective layer, etc.).  I have used this pad many times… Full review

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
