Recent Self-Inflating Sleeping Pad Reviews

Therm-a-Rest DreamTime

rated 1.5 of 5 stars A fine product if you want a lightweight packable mattress. I have gone through about six mattresses and ended up using another brand. Although the Therm-A-Rest line works well at first, I found ALL the ones I owned were prone to leaks after extensive camping. My first purchase was the first year they came out. Gave them four tries over the years, every time they'd change the seal I'd purchase the model to see if it stood up better than the previous model. But finally I had to change. I went with… Full review

Therm-a-Rest Men's ProLite 3

rated 5 of 5 stars A very dependable, comfortable, and durable pad that has served me very well for more than 15 years in the US and China. I have used it in snow and hot weather, have never had a leak, and it has helped to keep me warm and comfortable for many, many nights in tents, shelters, and under tarps. It's been very durable and comfortable for me. I've had it for more than 15 years and have had no leaks. I use a groundcloth under my tent or tarp and am always careful to look for anything sharp or pokey before… Full review

Therm-a-Rest EvoLite

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Good brand, but bad product. These break after couple of weeks. Design flaw. Full review

ALPS Mountaineering Ultra-Light Air Pad

rated 3 of 5 stars This pad can get you down to high teens with its R-value rated at 3.6 (I only used it in about low 20s). It's not the most packable pad but can be handled. I have not had any problems with durability and seems like it will last. This pad and its price is a great budget option for those that aren't concerned about packability and just want to keep off the ground. The Alps Mountaineering Ultra-Light Air Pad self-inflating sleeping pad (say that five times fast) is a great budget option for those who… Full review

Therm-a-Rest BaseCamp AF

rated 4 of 5 stars A very comfortable pad for front country camping excursions. Though my Sea to Summit Ultralight Insulated pad is light and packable for the backcountry, when car camping, I am going for comfort. The Therm-a-Rest Basecamp AF pad has proven to be just the thing when weight and bulk aren't an issue. The mattress comes in a large, roomy stuff sack about 7 x 12 inches. It is super easy to get the mattress in and out of this spacious stuff sack, which is really nice. How often do we find ourselves wrestling… Full review

MEC Reactor 3.8

rated 4 of 5 stars Lightweight sleeping pad. Compact and still comfortable for sleeping. Self inflation is mediocre. The back viewFront viewI purchased this pad last year to replace my aging 3/4 length pad. My old one was bulky even though it was 3/4 length and had to be strapped to the outside of my pack. Not ideal. The MEC Reactor 3.8 is described as a medium thickness pad with an R value of 3.4 And is full length. It comes with a stuff sac and a repair kit.  This is a self-inflating pad. Mine has not been the… Full review

Big Agnes Two Track

rated 1.5 of 5 stars Wow, my new Big Agnes Two Track Core sleeping pad has gone bad. I started to use my Big Agnes Two Track Core sleeping pad on 2-20-2018 and on 2-18-2018 is when I put air in my sleeping pad. On 3-3-2018 my sleeping pad went pop pop pop at the head near the valve.

Therm-a-Rest BaseCamp

rated 5 of 5 stars Great sleeping pad for all weather. I'm 6'3" and it's long enough to keep my feet off the ground and warm in cold weather. I've used these for years. They hold up well and have not let me down.  They are a little bulky but worth it for the sleeping comfort factor. Full review

REI AirRail 1.5 Self-Inflating Pad

rated 5 of 5 stars We've owned these for about five years now and would do it all over again. With just a few puffs of air, my REI AirRail 1.5 Self-Inflating Pads (tall version to accommodate the 6'4" husband) have been a dream to use when canoeing/portaging in the BWCA, hiking/backpacking, or even in our hunting cabin in WI in November. These have an insulation factor of R4, so they keep us quite toasty. They self-inflate about 90% before needing a little help to fill the air rails. Love the air rails, they keep… Full review
