Recent Self-Inflating Sleeping Pad Reviews

Therm-a-Rest MondoKing 3D

rated 5 of 5 stars Great comfy product. Lots of space, feels like home. A bit heavy for backpacking, but then that’s not what it’s for. I have the Mondoking 3D xxl size—it’s wide and comfortable. It’s like having my bed from home in my tent. Easy to set up and take down. And what a sleep! Keeps the ground cold away too! Full review

REI Camp Bed Self-Inflating Sleeping Pad

rated 4 of 5 stars Generously thick and comfy for a foam/air sleeping pad, great for car camping or luxurious motorcycle camping if you have space to spare, too big and heavy for much else. But if it's a short hike, the extra weight might just be worth the supreme camping comfort it provides. Though its 2.5" of thickness weighs in at about 5 lbs. hefty, the REI Camp Bed is the most comfortable of the foam self inflatables I've ever owned by far. It's also the thickest and heaviest of this kind I've owned by a good… Full review

Therm-a-Rest Men's ProLite

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Compact and comfortable mat for backpacking. Almost self-inflating, but requires a few puffs to fully inflate. Provides superb insulation, even on cold ground. My backpacking tent only has around 80 centimeters of head height and this mat does not reduce this by much. I have used this mat for three years now and it has proved to be well made and reliable.

REI AirRail 1.5 Self-Inflating Pad

rated 4 of 5 stars The REI AirRail Self-Inflating pad really does help keep you centered and gives the user a slight edge on keeping out the cold with the concave design. I picked up this model from the local Co-op garage sale. It was returned because the original owner said that it would not inflate. After examining the valve, I could see nothing wrong with it. I blew on it in the store and it seemed to work fine so I bought it for the $9.85 price tag. The valve is a quarter turner. To close the valve, you depress… Full review

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
