Recent Self-Inflating Sleeping Pad Reviews

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.

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

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
