User Review: Therm-a-Rest Men's ProLite 4
Price Paid: 90$
Excellent sleeping pad. I am about as picky a consumer as you can get. During my last trip, in 35 degrees, rain poured all night long. I actually awoke in the morning to find my aluminum dinner dish FLOATING across the entrance of my tent -sigh-. My ProLite 4 kept me above the water all night long, didn't even know that water was accumulating like that. Despite the fact that every other item in my tent was soaked, my sleeping bag was dry thanks to the elevation provided by the ProLite 4. It (Prolite4) got wet all wet on the bottom (as my whole tent floor was wet), but my sleeping bag never got wet. I laid the ProLite 4 out to dry at home and by morning it looked brand new.
Extremely comfortable (I would actually rather sleep on this than my bed mattress at home). My only qualms with the product is not knowing how durable it is/puncture resistant. I have not had any problems thus far. And I am not particularly fond of the air locking mechanism-tightens perfectly fine and locks in air, but I don't know if there is a safe-guard for overtightening--have never tried to overtighten. In conclusion, an A+ pad, maybe a lifesaver.
