Therm-a-Rest NeoAir UberLite

rated 4 of 5 stars The NeoAir UberLite is a welcomed ultralight addition to the NeoAir line-up, filling a niche as Therm-A-Rest's premier summer sleeping pad. It shares the dimensions and comfort of the XLite series, with a savings of about 3.5 oz for a size regular. It sacrifices some warmth, quite noticeable when it gets into the 30’s. The 15D lightweight material is also a bit slippery and less rigid compared to a NeoAir XLite. I was concerned about the durability of such an ultralight product but it survived… Full review

Klymit Inertia X Frame

rated 2 of 5 stars An ultra lightweight sleeping pad that shaves weight and bulk by padding key areas (head, shoulders, hips and feet). It's the smallest and lightest air-filled sleeping pad I've come across. For those who count the grams and have a back hewn from granite this may be for you, but no matter how much I want to like this ultra lightweight (is there a lighter sleeping pad on the market?), ultra compact sleeping pad I found it hard and uncomfortable. Moreover, on anything but level ground I kept slipping… Full review

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

Therm-a-Rest NeoAir UberLite

rated 4 of 5 stars Sooooo light!!! Not very warm, but also not terribly crinkly loud. Holy moly is this thing shockingly light and tiny. That is so great for solo travelers and ultra light folk. It's amazing. And I'm OK with using a lighter R value with a warmer bag and if needed a Z Lite or emergency blanket under me for cooler hikes/travel. It takes more to get it inflated, but the weight savings!!! Wow.  Full review

Klymit Static V

rated 3 of 5 stars A medium light sleeping pad that fills easily. I bought this to use exclusively on a short cycle tour (30 days). I really like it's light weight and minimal packed space. I felt secure and comfortable on this pad. Its air chamber design does a good job keeping you in place and I'm a pretty active sleeper, switching between sides. My bag was the lighter Sierra Design's Zissou. A good system for moderate low temps. About midway through my tour I noticed that it was not holding air completely through… Full review

MEC Kelvin 3.8 Sleeping Pad

rated 3.5 of 5 stars When inflated, it's three times thicker and up to twice as warm as a 1/2" closed-cell foam pad. And when rolled up, this pad takes half to a third the space (volume) of that same closed-cell foam pad. Size - rolled: 30 x 16 cm (12" x 6")Size - inflated: 183 x 51 x 3.8 cm (72" x 20" x 1.5")Weight: 775 g (1 lb 11 oz) Thickness - 3.8cm (1.5"):This is pretty average for these "self-inflating" type sleeping pads. They called it a "Medium-Thickness" pad in the literature. For a side-sleeper like me,… Full review

Sea to Summit UltraLight Insulated

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Lightweight, insulated pad that weighs a little over a pound. A 17-ounce pad, good for all but the coldest weather.  Air sprung cells add comfort, but hold small amounts of dirt carried into a tent. Also they will make you feel small bumps (rocks, ridges) when set up on. The fabric is solid, 40D nylon.  The Sea to Summit valve was revolutionary when it debuted, and is still the best I believe. It allows for the pad's firmness to be adjusted while atop it in a sleeping bag. Above the pad in its… 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.
