Z-Rest

rated 4 of 5 stars The Z-Rest is a Therm-a-Rest product, but it's not an air-filled type — rather it's closed cell foam. It's light, durable, and versatile. I've had this one for at least 20 years, maybe 25 and I'd buy another tomorrow (but I don't need to!). The model Z-rest I have is 520mm (2.5") wide and 1.8m (6') long. There are other sizes. It folds in a concertina-style and its egg-carton pattern (do you have egg cartons in the US?) enables each segment to nest. That same pattern means its effective thickness… Full review

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

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

Capella 20

rated 1.5 of 5 stars Bulkier than expected. Overpriced. Way overpriced. "System" of two stretch bands to secure to same brand of matched sleeping pad fails. I slid off every night, finding hip or shoulder on ground. Bag slides OFF the pad length-wise — down off the foot of the pad, too. Too hot for temps in 40-50s. Comes with a simple stuff sack, should have a compression sack. I bought one and it compressed the bag to at least 1/2 of the provided stuff sack. The bag was too bulky otherwise. Despite being made for… Full review

NeoAir XLite

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Light, easy, comfortable, but SLIPPERY! I was impressed with the tiny size and light weight. But it took many more than the "20 breaths" to inflate! Quick and easy deflate. Comfortable, even though it looks too thin when inflated. BUT very slippery, despite using same brand sleeping bag with the "system" of two straps meant to keep sleeping bag on the pad. I woke every morning with some part of me on the ground — shoulder, hip or entire trunk of body — while head was on pad! Very expensive system… Full review
