Exped DownMat 9

I winter camp, in the snow down to -11° and this is my only "barrier" between my bag and the snow. This is THE BEST sleeping pad if you want to survive cold and live to tell about it. I have photos to prove. Love Exped, will always have one now, no going back, after my "young years" camping with other brands.

Ozark Trail Air Mattress Velour Top

Zero stars. 20+ years experience of sleeping on air mattresses. This is by far the worst ever. Zero stars. I have regularly used air mattresses for 20+ years one weekend a month in a room full of teens. I was excited about the extra height this single air mattress had. As I age I need height to get up easier. I expect an air mattress to survive 2-3 years. This one did not even get me through two nights. I understand stretching, so I tried it again for several more nights. Never have I had an air… Full review

Therm-a-Rest MondoKing 3D

Best pad for car camping I'm not a young chickadee anymore. I bought this pad and I spend a lot of time camping with my son's Boy Scout Troop. My regular Therm-a-Rest from 1998 wasn't exactly doing the job.  This bad boy is big and bulky but feels like your mattress at home. I don't even need a cot. I live in Upstate New York and as added plus this pad is extremely warm and insulating.  Full review

Sea to Summit Ether Light XT Extreme Insulated

Super comfy, heavy, large. I am a confirmed side sleeper (left side down). Bought this mat because I desperately needed a high R-rating pad for camping in single F digits. Thought at the time it was too expensive. Used it recently for multi-day backpack in Sierra high country. It is more comfortable than my two Warbonnet hammocks (including a Bridge), my Therm-a-Rest hammock, my Hennessy hammock, even my Select Comfort mattress at home! And...it reflects heat back at you so it feels like you have… Full review

NEMO Tensor Ultralight

A comfortable, compact, and lightweight inflatable sleeping pad. Especially in the chosen size/format (regular wide). Like most other lightweight pads, requires care and attention to avoid damages and leaks. The 2.5 R-Value means four-season usability for my tropical settings, even without supplemental insulation. Since I resumed using my 1P tent for camping a few months back, I decided to go for a higher R-Value sleeping pad. Nothing wrong with my beloved Ether Light XT air. It’s long, wide,… Full review

EcoTek Outdoors Hybern8 Sleeping Pad

I found myself a reasonably priced sleeping pad that is lightweight, compact, and most importantly, gives me a good night's sleep. I've put together a video review of the ECOTEK hybern8 sleeping pad. This sleeping pad is inexpensive, lightweight, and rolls up into a small package that takes up little room in a backpack. I bought the three-season version with an R rating of 2.2, but this company also manufactures a colder weather version that features an R value of 4.7.  I found it to be very comfortable.

Ozark Trail Air Mattress Velour Top

I'm very disappointed with this bed, Ozark Trail Air Mattress. I bought it from Walmart three weeks ago and I'm not getting any enjoyment out of this bed at all. When I wake up the bed is completely deflated, flat on the floor, no air!! If I inflate it at 7 o'clock by 10 o'clock I have to inflate it again. By now the company knows that this is not a good product and they should stop selling it, or find a way and fix the problem especially since they are well aware of the problem, so many people… Full review

Ozark Trail Air Mattress Velour Top

Bought a full size a month ago. We use it on Friday nights for a grandson to sleep on. Only holds air till the middle of the night. I am not satisfied with this product at all. The only good things are the ease of setting it up and putting away. It won’t hold air all night. You wake up on the floor. Very disappointed. Glad I only wasted 25 dollars. Full review

Therm-a-Rest NeoAir UberLite

Excellent weight, comfort and packed size. Have used on the AT. The UberLite is excellent. It is so light that I was concerned how well it would hold up, but it has proved to be as durable as other heavier sleeping pads. I used it on the AT in colder weather and was expecting it to be cold based on the R rating (2.3), but it was actually pretty warm. The weight, pack size, and usability cannot be beat. It has the same thickness as other sleeping pads from Therm-a-Rest, so it is plenty comfortable. … Full review
