User Review: Therm-a-Rest ToughSkin
Price Paid: $95 (on base price)
I am Active Duty in the US Marine Corps. I purchased this pad a few years ago for trip to the Big Island of Hawaii for training due to the fact that we train and sleep in mostly old lava flow. I could have not been more comfortable!!
While the standard military issue foam pads were torn up my pad was REMARKABLE! Not one puncture, hole, tear. I got some of the best sleep I have ever had in the field.
I then took it on to Iraq for a couple of tours. There we had the option of a mattress. I asked for a cot and threw my pad on there and slept like that for 14 months total with no problems whatsoever.
I still use it today for recreational camping and hiking. I even got one for my wife. Hands down one of the best pads out there.
