User Review: Therm-a-Rest Men's ProLite 4
Price Paid: $80
Just recently I started to try and pack as light and as minimal as possible. This departure from what had been my usual packing style prompted me to start looking for a new sleeping pad. I found myself visiting a local store over and over and looking online, reading review after review trying to decide.
After looking at everything that the sleeping pad world had to offer I finally decided to go with the ProLite 4. The first thing that you notice is the diamond cut foam, this lead me to think that this maybe the most cold and un-supportive pad ever created, boy was I wrong.
I am a side sleeper and often times sleep cold. After the first night I noticed that not only was I warm and my hips weren't sore but I was also still on the pad, this is surprising because I am used to my bag sliding off of the pad if there is the slightest slope.
The only downside to this pad is its price and the fact that the stuff sack is sold separate for about $14.
