Recent Self-Inflating Sleeping Pad Reviews

MEC Reactor 3.8

rated 4 of 5 stars Lightweight sleeping pad. Compact and still comfortable for sleeping. Self inflation is mediocre. The back viewFront viewI purchased this pad last year to replace my aging 3/4 length pad. My old one was bulky even though it was 3/4 length and had to be strapped to the outside of my pack. Not ideal. The MEC Reactor 3.8 is described as a medium thickness pad with an R value of 3.4 And is full length. It comes with a stuff sac and a repair kit.  This is a self-inflating pad. Mine has not been the… Full review

Big Agnes Two Track

rated 1.5 of 5 stars Wow, my new Big Agnes Two Track Core sleeping pad has gone bad. I started to use my Big Agnes Two Track Core sleeping pad on 2-20-2018 and on 2-18-2018 is when I put air in my sleeping pad. On 3-3-2018 my sleeping pad went pop pop pop at the head near the valve.

Therm-a-Rest BaseCamp

rated 5 of 5 stars Great sleeping pad for all weather. I'm 6'3" and it's long enough to keep my feet off the ground and warm in cold weather. I've used these for years. They hold up well and have not let me down.  They are a little bulky but worth it for the sleeping comfort factor. Full review

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
