User Review: Therm-a-Rest Men's ProLite 4
Price Paid: $100
This is by far the piece of gear that I am most grateful for. This pad has saved me from many a cold night's sleep. I have used this pad in everything from a freak snowstorm at 13,000 feet in the Sangres in Colorado to 80 degree nights in Kansas. Every trip I make, I am so glad for this pad. It is comfortable, it insulates well, and it's relatively compact and light.
The only real flaws I can find with the pad is that it takes a while to inflate and the material likes to slide around on tent floors. On a trip to the Sangres my girlfriend and I were forced to camp on a slope. I slept on the downhill side and I would wake up about once an hour to her laying on top of me because her pad had slid on top of me. It's not that big of an issue though.
I love this pad. It has kept me nice and cozy down to 18 degrees. In the summer it's comfortable enough to sleep on top of with a light blanket. If I had to buy this pad again, I wouldn't hesitate.
