User Review: Therm-a-Rest BaseCamp
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $99.99
Very comfortable pad and you can adjust the firmness. Durable. For a camping pad, one of the best I have ever used.
- Self-inflating but adjustable
- XLg was very good size for me
- Not great traction on bottom, so you can slide a bit if on a tilted surface
Very good product. The comfort was great. I used it camping sleeping on the ground. Could not feel the ground and the mattress was firm enough that even laying on my side, I was not touching the ground.
The only drawback was you need to be sure you are on surface that is flat or nearly flat. There isn't any traction on the bottom (a common problem with the camping mattresses I have looked at) and therefore if you are on any type of a hill, the mattress may slide down a little at night.
The bottom of my tent is like a tarp, with no real traction either, so I found on a slope, I slid a little towards the bottom of my tent during the night. But other than that, it is a great camping pad.
