Ensolite Sleeping Pad
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $5
This product doesn't have a brand name. It's the good old Ensolite Pad, or at least that's what I have always called it. Anyway for those looking for a very durable pad to sleep on, this is it. It doesn't require inflation, it holds its own a long time and it's cheap!
I would recommend it to anyone looking for a warm sleeping pad that is super light.
- Light weight
- Cheap ($5-10)
- Can't think of any
I have used my Ensolite Pad since 1978 (or 34 years). It has held up very well considering it's been all over the USA including Alaska.
It's made of a closed cell foam that is very lightweight. It doesn't require being inflated. It will take tons of thorns, goat heads, even your forgotten keys in your pocket can't harm this beauty!
Usually it comes in only one color, which is Blue. It's about 1/4 inch thick and is about 6 foot long x 2 feet wide. It weighs about 1 pound or less. Mine cost me $5 in 1978 and I have seen them for as much as $10 in stores. It can be bought at Kmart, Walmart and even high tech outdoor store like REI, etc.
It's very warm to sleep on, insulates from the coldest ground, snow etc. It conforms to your body as you sleep. It stays in place as you turn over a lot as I do in my sleep.
So if you are looking for a good long lasting sleep pad that you can use the rest of your life, Get an Ensolite Pad!
