Recent Self-Inflating Sleeping Pad Reviews

Kelty Weekender Pad

rated 5 of 5 stars This pad rocks. I have two of them. For the price you can't beat it, I have taken it backpacking four nights on Isle Royale, multiple weeks spent in Colorado backcountry, West Virginia, and so on. This sleeping pad provides enough insulation to keep you warm on colder nights. The only problem I have had is a leak occurring from the fabric right where the nozzle is (these leaks occurred on fourth use and somewhere around the 20th use). This happened to both of my pads, but was easily fixed with a… Full review

Multimat Trekker 25

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Faulty valve and zero customer service. I have owned a Thermarest 3/4 length self inflating sleeping mat since 1991—so that's 25 years. It is still every bit as good as the day I bought it. I bought a Multimat 3/4 length for my wife which we have owned for around 5 years. On our most recent trip it developed a leak where the valve is inserted into the mat. This was terminal and not repairable with the kit provided. Clearly, there is a design fault with the valve. Below is the response to the email… Full review

EMS Hobo Sleeping Pad

rated 4 of 5 stars The EMS Hobo pad rolls up very small and is very lightweight. I have camped with it for 60+ nights. It is not the largest or thickest sleeping pad, but I find it very comfortable. I like the EMS Hobo pad a lot. It is long, which I like because my feet don't hang off the bottom (I am 6'). It rolls up very small. You simply roll it up or fold it in half lengthwise and then roll it so it rolls into a cylinder roughly 8" X 8" X 1". When I unpack the Hobo pad after it has been fully deflated I manually… Full review

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
