REI AirRail 1.5 Self-Inflating Pad

rated 5 of 5 stars We've owned these for about five years now and would do it all over again. With just a few puffs of air, my REI AirRail 1.5 Self-Inflating Pads (tall version to accommodate the 6'4" husband) have been a dream to use when canoeing/portaging in the BWCA, hiking/backpacking, or even in our hunting cabin in WI in November. These have an insulation factor of R4, so they keep us quite toasty. They self-inflate about 90% before needing a little help to fill the air rails. Love the air rails, they keep… Full review

Therm-a-Rest NeoAir XTherm

rated 5 of 5 stars This pad is great, inflates easily, extremely well made. Just the best pad, used over 500 miles on the PCT. Never failed me. Full review

Quechua Forclaz A100

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Lightweight and extremely affordable self-inflating sleeping mat (¾ length). Good addition to traditional closed-cell foam pad in temperatures below freezing. Also can be used for ultralight applications or for children. I purchased three of these self-inflating mats specifically for winter use by my entire family. Here are some specs: Weight — 450 g (1 lb) Dimensions — 117×50×2 cm (46×20×¾ in)   Folded size  Ø25×13cm / 3.3L (Ø10×5 in) The manufacturer's promo video: With available… Full review

Therm-a-Rest Men's Trail Lite

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Light, but not very sturdy. I have had my Therm-a-Rest Trail Lite for a few years now, purchased in 2009, but it has never really done it for me: Although it is light I found it small for my frame size (6'-1"/ 1.85 m tall). I just went for convenience since the plan was to have it for backpacking and bought the biggest size available at the time. It has always been barely comfortable to sleep in and I always slide off from it. Every time I found myself sleeping on the tent bottom. Not very sturdy. Full review

Therm-a-Rest Men's ProLite 4

rated 4 of 5 stars Excellent and durable pad. Slightly heavy by today's standard, but cheaper than the ultralight bunch. I've used a Prolite 4 (that's today's ProLite Plus) from 2003 to 2016. I have the 3/4 version. The most important thing about it is that it works, it really self-inflates, and it's durable. Some notes and details: a. Durability:  I always use a ground sheet or inside a tent; I never had a puncture. I had two mats; one started leaking from the valve after 10 years (needed valve replacement), the… Full review

ALPS Mountaineering Lightweight Series Self Inflating Air Pads

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This review is for the XL size of the air pads...bought as a bit of "giving-in" to the need for a more supportive sleeping pad. I originally thought I would use it for only car camping when we may sleep in a tent or in a wooden lean-to...however, despite its humongous size (30 x 77 x 3 ), it actually goes canoe camping with me as well! It certainly is too large for backpacking, but is a very comfortable pad, if you can manage to bring it along.  Right after unrolling it...This is rather a luxury… Full review

Cabela's Alaskan Guide Sleeping Pad

rated 4 of 5 stars It is plenty warm for 3-season camping. Very comfortable. My only real complaint is that it doesn't pack small enough to fit inside my pack. It is comfortable and warm. I found it to be most comfortable. The first night I used it I thought it was a little limp, but after a couple of nights use I found it to be very comfortable and it kept me off the cold ground. Full review

Therm-a-Rest NeoAir XTherm

rated 5 of 5 stars Easy pack in and setup. Keeps the cold ground away from your body. Nice cushioning. Used this for a week in Northern Manitoba on a moose hunt. Was below zero many nights. I never got cold with this sleeping pad and my down sleeping bag. Was sleeping on a cot. Stayed very comfortable with the good cushioning it provided. Full review

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
