Therm-a-Rest Z-Seat

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great little seat for when out hiking. Works perfectly. I purchased the Therm-a-Rest Z-Seat in Limon/Silver after seeing my friend had one on a winter hike. When everyone stopped to have lunch and we were all looking for a dry place to sit down he just took this out and sat on the nearest rock.   The material is designed to insulate you from the cold wet ground and it does that well. The silver side radiates your body heat back up which helps keep you warmer and the material keeps the snow and… Full review

Therm-a-Rest Z-Rest

rated 4 of 5 stars The Z-Rest is a Therm-a-Rest product, but it's not an air-filled type — rather it's closed cell foam. It's light, durable, and versatile. I've had this one for at least 20 years, maybe 25 and I'd buy another tomorrow (but I don't need to!). The model Z-rest I have is 520mm (2.5") wide and 1.8m (6') long. There are other sizes. It folds in a concertina-style and its egg-carton pattern (do you have egg cartons in the US?) enables each segment to nest. That same pattern means its effective thickness… Full review

REI Standard Blue Foam Pad

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Better than the ground. Competitive weight. Does add some insulation. Should go great combined with another pad for winter use. So, to start off with, I do have, and have used the basic Thermarest self inflating pad in 3/4 length. But not being particularly plump, I tend to bottom-out at the pressure points (hips, elbows, etc.) with any type of air mattress. I'm also constantly afraid of getting a hole in it, though it hasn't happened yet. So for my last backpacking trip I had ordered the Thermarest… Full review

Therm-a-Rest RidgeRest

rated 5 of 5 stars A light, relatively inexpensive pad that will prevent sub zero from getting to you from underneath. I bought mine in 1997 and is still going strong. When I am not using it camping, I use it for a yoga mat. I certainly got my money out of it. Mine does not say Therma-Rest, though, it says Cascade Designs. I'm not sure of the merchandizing, but it is the same exact pad. I have a black and grey one, not the newer green and grey. At one point, I cut 16" off the end, to make it shorter, making it 56",… Full review

Ensolite Sleeping Pad

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Low cost entry into the large sleeping pad field of products. While low cost, it is durable and functions well. Not as compact as other more expensive pads. It works well. Full review

Therm-a-Rest Z Lite Sol

rated 5 of 5 stars Love this sleeping pad! Perfect for backpacking. Light. Durable. Will not break the bank. I love this pad. I have dragged it all over New England and New York without any issues. It insulates well (even with a little snow on the ground), it is light, it was inexpensive, and it is surprisingly durable. The only downside is it's a little bulky (compared to the air pads), so will you have to strap it on your pack. It may catch a little when you're trying to squeeze through tight spots, but it has not… Full review

Therm-a-Rest RidgeRest

rated 5 of 5 stars This closed-cell pad is very lightweight and functioned perfectly. It was comfortable and kept the chill off. I borrowed this pad from my mother-in-law and used it on a cold weather hiking/camping trip recently. I used it in my ENO hammock because I read about getting cold where pressure points are in your sleeping bag (such as the shoulders and rear). It seemed that if you didn't have an under quilt that you definitely would want a sleeping pad under your sleeping bag inside of the hammock.  I… Full review

Therm-a-Rest Z-Seat

rated 5 of 5 stars Therm-a Rest's Z-Seat should be standard equipment in your pack! Functional as a protective seat while resting, it may also be useful for several other innovative means while on the trail. Therm-a Rest's Z-Seat should be standard equipment in your pack! Functional as a protective seat while resting, it may also be useful for several other innovative means while on the trail… Simply a scaled-down version of Therm-a-rest's award-winning Z-Lite mattress, the Z-Seat is light and compact enough to… Full review

ProLite Gear EvoPad

rated 5 of 5 stars EvoPad (with Evozote) by ProLite Gear is a high-performing closed cell foam (CCF) sleeping pad worth looking into. If I can afford the extra bulk and weight of this pad, I take it every chance I get. Here's a pic of my pad next to my summit pack. Sorry it's sideways. The original is "right-side-up", but this site turns it automatically. ProLite Gear certainly isn't the only gear company offering Evozote pads. Other companies that come to mind are Gossamer Gear and MEC from Canada (MEC's are a very… Full review
