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

Therm-a-Rest EvoLite

rated 4 of 5 stars The Evolite weighs in at about 1.5 pounds and has a comfortable two inches thickness of loft. It’s pretty warm and plenty comfortable. If you’re looking for a three-season comfortable sleeping pad, I suggest you take one of these for a test drive. I can readily recommend the EvoLite sleeping pad for those who need comfort and 3-season warmth, lightweight, and compactness from a pad. I would recommend the Evolite to backpackers who primarily sleep on the ground. This pad is designed for and best… Full review

Big Agnes Two Track

rated 5 of 5 stars The best pad, period. Just attach it under the lid at the top of you pack, and you are good to go. A pad that keeps you warm down to -25 degrees. Comes with a repair kit in the stuff sack. Will need to blow a bit of air into the pad after it self inflates, especially if you've stored it in it's stuff sack. Used it recently in sub 40 degree weather, and had a Lafuma 35-degree bag zipped around my feet and then unzipped and draped over my body and I was very comfortable. To pack down to its smallest… Full review

REI Lite-Core Sit Pad

rated 4.5 of 5 stars If you don't want to carry a chair and you still appreciate relief from the hard ground around your campsites then you might want to consider adding the REI Lite-Core 4 ounce multi use item to your pack. It serves me as a sit pad, semi-frame for my frameless back pack, cold weather chair insulation and insulation under my calves and feet for sleeping in my hammock. I find the REI Lite-Core sit pad a very valuable, durable, and multi-functional piece of gear. It is the first thing that goes in my… Full review

Therm-a-Rest Women's ProLite Plus

rated 4 of 5 stars Very light, comfortable, and durable. I bought two years ago, used. The owner had had it for several years and was an avid camper. I've used it more than a few times myself and it shows no signs of stopping! I have honestly used this more on a hard floor than I have in a tent, thanks to some crazy commuting I was doing for awhile. That being said, this thing is very light and quite comfortable. It shows no signs of leaking but the design is such that even if it did, you would still have some padding… Full review

Therm-a-Rest Men's Trail Lite

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Simple, lightweight, and comfortable. Great for a weekend car camping adventure or a backpacking trip in the backwoods. I've been using the Thermarest Trail Lite regularly for over a year. I originally purchased it because it could be rolled up quite small for backpacking and was a bit thicker, when inflated, than the simple closed cell foam pad I'd used previously. Since you can adjust the thickness by adding extra air it tends to be more comfortable than the foam ones. But when deflated and stored… Full review

Therm-a-Rest Men's ProLite Plus

rated 4 of 5 stars This is a very light compact comfortable mattress. Rolls into a small package for easy storage in pack. Great for long haul backpacking trip or just the weekender. This is a great product either for the weekender or long haul 4- to 8-day trip in the backcountry mattress. The Pro-Lite holds up to the standards one would expect from Therm-a-Rest. The mattress once unrolled and valve opened begins to inflate. It is slow to inflate and have had to add couple of "puffs" to fully inflate. This is not… Full review
