Recent Self-Inflating Sleeping Pad Reviews

Vango Trek Standard

rated 4 of 5 stars Not much to say about the best selling sleeping mat from Vango. It comes only in red (I think) with its bag and compression straps. It also comes with a repair kit if you accidentally puncture it! You just unscrew the valve cap and wait for the mattress to decompress. After that you may need to give it 2-3 puffs and screw the cap back in place for a more firm feel. My advice: When done with the mattress let it decompress once more and when the inflation comes into a halt screw the cap back and store… Full review

Therm-a-Rest Men's ProLite 4

rated 4 of 5 stars Very lightweight pad, could include a better bag. Got it heavily discounted from Sierra Trading. Lightest inflatable made. Comes with a small stuff sack, but pad needs to be folded and rolled before stuffing and in the bag provided takes up way too much space in a pack. Ended up buying the Therm-a-Rest 11.5 liter stuff sack to carry pad in. Carry it rolled without having to fold, and can attach pad sack to bottom of pack or under pack lid. Full review

Coleman Self-Inflating Pad

rated 3.5 of 5 stars A good value and solid comfort. I bought this self-inflating pad so I could sleep in comfort while accompanying my grandson on Boy Scout campouts. The foam pad I had been using left me stiff and bruised. This pad was almost as comfortable as my bed at home. It inflates itself in a minute or two, then I add about six good puffs to firm it up.  Full review

Therm-a-Rest NeoAir XTherm

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a very lightweight, compact air mattress. I have tested quite a few and this one fits my needs. Very comfortable even for a 215 lb toss'n and turning sleeper. Purchased September 5th, 2014Fall of 2014 I purchased the NeoAir XTherm. This was replaced with the 2015 NeoAir XTherm / XTherm MAXThe only difference is within this statement on the website "NEW – XTherm MAX – All the performance of the original XTherm with added coverage for extreme temps and larger torsos." Whatever the hell… Full review

ALPS Mountaineering Lightweight Series Self Inflating Air Pads

rated 4.5 of 5 stars For an entry level item, it stands up well. Not as sleek and sexy as the bigger names, but certainly a capable offering. I've had mine since Christmas now, and I've used it in a number of weather conditions and locations. Like most ALPS products it measures up well when you look at it from an overall performance angle. It's a warm, comfortable pad (enhanced, as all self-inflators are, by blowing some extra air in before locking the valve shut), of decent size, thickness, and weight. Nothing ground-breaking… Full review

Therm-a-Rest Men's ProLite Plus

rated 4 of 5 stars Not the lightest, but definitely one of the more reliable and must have for any pack. I have owned my sleep pad for several years now and have enjoyed its reliability, comfort, and ease to use. It easily inflates and deflates when done with and while it is a little cumbersome to deal with when deflated I have found it is not a problem to roll up and stuff into my pack which I use it as a back cushion (between my gear and back). It is a little on the heavier side and of my standard gear it is one… Full review

Cabela's Alaskan Guide Sleeping Pad

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Was great until a seam by the valve opened up. I have the 2.5" x 30" x 80 (ish - the "Long" one) - great for car and canoe camping, but it was heavy.   Biggest issue is a seam opened by the valve after 4 years of sparse use.  It was in my garage (inflated partially) and I think the heat compromised the adhesive. I have Gorilla taped it and will look for a better fix later. Full review

REI Unisex AirRail 1.5 Self-Inflating Pad

rated 2.5 of 5 stars A decent idea that in practice didn't work for me. The Air Rails only help to keep you on the mat if you have it at close to full inflation, which I never do for comfort. A short review of this item as I didn't keep it for long... I bought this on an unexpected trip out of town to help my 80-year-old parents move. The new place didn't have a lot of room so I ran by REI with the intention of using the pad for a couple of nights and evaluating it as a replacement for my aging REI Lite Core pad, and… Full review

Therm-a-Rest Men's Trail Lite

rated 4 of 5 stars At 1lb 11oz, it's not the lightest but does a fine job for 3-seasons. I've been using the Trail Lite for two years now and I've always been pleased with it. Knowing there are new pads out there that offer more loft, higher R-value, and lighter weight, my curiosity has been piqued but for now, the Trail lite is what I know. I would say that overall this pad has always served me well and has lived up to my expectations of it.The bag inflates to approximately 1 1/4" thick. Not a great amount of loft… Full review
