User Review: Therm-a-Rest Men's ProLite 4
Price Paid: $90
I found out this pad is worth every cent. Before using this pad, iI used a standard 3/8 inch think foam sleeping pad. I will NEVER go back to a pad like that again. Not only is it as light, it is thicker, warmer, and packs smaller than the old one. I was originally worried about puncturing the pad on rock or stones, but its durability has prevailed.
On a side note, I was tarp camping (my preferred camping) with my scout troop and we got hit by a freak rain storm. The water started to flow under my ground cloth. To keep my gear dry, it threw the rain cover on and fully inflated my pad by blowing it up. My equipment floated on the pad as the water rose and we waited out the storm. No foam pad would ever be able to be used like this.
