Recent Self-Inflating Sleeping Pad Reviews

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

Therm-a-Rest Men's ProLite

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Very comfortable sleeping pad. Great for backpacking and camping. Have had it for 4-ish years and haven't poked a hole in it yet. A great sleeping pad. Does not self-inflate very well but easy to blow into and fill with air. Very comfortable on almost any surface. Mostly used for backpacking and camping. Packs pretty small if rolled properly. I have had good longevity out of this product. I have had it for 4 or 5 years now and it has always bring it with me on camping trips.  Full review

Therm-a-Rest NeoAir XTherm

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The NeoAir Xtherm is a great piece of gear because it is so light and warm. After having a traditional self inflating mat this is a big improvement. Extremely light with great warmth and super thick to give lots of comfort due. Only disadvantages being that it is noisy to sleep on, doesn't worry me as I'm a heavy sleeper, and that it takes some time to blow up not being self inflatable. But I can put up with that for the benefits it has. Full review

REI Unisex AirRail 1.5 Self-Inflating Pad

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Comfortable air pad. Comfortable pad. I like the air rails, when I woke up I was still on the pad! I did leave the valve open for a while, while I set up a few other things to come back and see it maybe half inflated. Took a few minutes to full blow it up myself...not a huge deal to me. Full review

Therm-a-Rest Men's ProLite Plus

rated 5 of 5 stars I love this bit of kit. Never leave on a camping trip without it. Ive had this pad for 3 years, and have climbed Mt Blanc and Mt Lhotse with it. On my last trip, I slept 2 nights at 26,000 ft and did not feel the cold creeping through from underneath. I have also slept in the open forests, under a tarp. The pad has never failed me. The valve has never leaked and is as good as new. I tend to leave the pad rolled up when not in use, and that hasnt adversely effected the pad at all. Full review

Swiss Gear Self Inflating Mat

rated 4 of 5 stars I have been using mine for four years. You have to take care of it, it will puncture just like a high quality air matress, leaving you only low density foam to sleep on. Protect it and it will last many years. I use mine on top of a cot, as cots, stretched tight, are still very firm. I read a review of a woman that expected it to blow itself up like an air mattress. It is low density foam that expands to its normal 1 - 1 1/2" size when exposed to normal air pressure. You then close the valves and… Full review

Kelty Weekender Pad

rated 5 of 5 stars I've slept on air beds, and cots, but this sleeping pad beat everything by a mile. It self inflates in 30 min or so. if you can't wait, you can blow it up with your mouth in 3 or 4 breaths. It was on sale at Dick's for $49. FEATURES: Dimensions: 72"L x 21"W Thickness: 1.5" Material: 75D polyester fabric top and bottom Single plastic valve for inflation and deflation Repair kit included Storage sack included Weight: 47 oz Pad & carry bag total weight: 52 oz Style: 95454912 Kelty    Full review

REI Unisex AirRail 1.5 Self-Inflating Pad

rated 5 of 5 stars Purchased at one of REI's "garage sales" for $35 for my 90-lb daughter to use on backpacking trips. She loves it and says it is really comfortable. Packs down to a size that's easy to put inside the backpack alongside her sleeping bag in the bottom pocket. Our local REI had one of its members only "garage sales" earlier this summer so I was able to replace my daughter's older big green Therm-a-Rest with this more pack friendly sleeping pad. She's used it a couple of times on multi-night backpacking… Full review
