Klymit V Seat

One breath and you're off the surface. Easy valve operation. I have only used indoors so far at my kitchen table on wooden chairs. The cushion makes the sitting surface much softer. The material feels sturdy and tough enough to withstand the rigors of outdoor use. This has been an easy to use cushion for the past month. One breath has it to full capacity and for use. I have only used this indoors so far on my wooden surface kitchen chairs. The V Seat has offered a nice cushion for longer seating… Full review

OutdoorsmanLab Ultralight Inflatable Pad

This is a great, summer-only, inflatable sleeping pad. Very light, and packs down small. Easy to inflate. Packs down small and is very light. This is a summer pad only. This was my first purchase when I decided to go away from the Alps Mountaineering, self-inflating pad. A large intake hole makes this super easy to inflate. It is also easy to deflate and pack up. This inflatable pad is very quiet. I'm a restless sleeper and I can roll over on this pad without affecting my neighbors. Comfort is not… Full review

Klymit Insulated Static V Lite

Great quality, especially for the price. I find this pad to be very comfortable, quiet when rolling over, and it is lightweight and packs down small. This is a great three-season sleeping pad. I feel as if my search is over for now. Unless I decide to make an impulse purchase next year. While I find this easy to inflate, it takes a good 10 or 12 breaths, with a rest in between. Some of the higher-priced pads come with lightweight air pumps (the stuff sack doubles as the air pump). The Big Agnes… Full review

Exped DownMat 7

Warm and comfy sleeping mat, but after about 10 years the longitudinal baffles failed and it was like sleeping on a hill. Best sleeping mat I have ever had the pleasure to use. Warm and comfortable. However like my Therm-a-Rest mat it failed after many (about 10) years of use. The Downmat 7 had the longitudinal baffles fail and the middle three tubes became one big hill to sleep on. Lesson—all inflatable mattresses will eventually fail, think of a backup plan or choose a lightweight solid option. Full review

Vango Comfort 7.5 Single

This self-inflating mat replaces a worn out Therm-a-Rest and so far it is doing the job well. This product is cheap enough and is very comfortable. It is used about 20 times throughout the last two years. Summer, winter, it doesn't matter. This self-inflating mat is large. If you are after small and compact this is not for you. I had been using Therm-a-Rests over approximately 30 years and I finally needed something thicker and more comfortable and cheaper so I bought the Vango Comfort 7.5. This… Full review

Exped DownMat Lite 5

LOVE this mat! As someone who's had two lumbar, one cervical, and one hip surgery...as well as being a side-sleeper...I don't sleep very well while tent camping. This mat has helped to change that. It pumps up so fast, and is so comfortable that my quality of sleep while tent camping has honestly been surprising since I purchased two of these pads for my wife and I a couple of years ago. Frankly, the most uncomfortable part of tent camping is no longer the sleeping part (it's now the discomfort… Full review

Ozark Trail Camping Pad

Just a simple pad.  Does a fair job on a cot and I use it for this purpose. I don’t plan on hiking with it.  Full review

Big Agnes SLX Tent Floor Pad

An extra-wide and cushy insulated air mattress for two in the backpacker weight class. Suitable for three-season use. Long enough for people in the 180 cm+/6 foot+ league, extra wide at the head end, 9cm/3.5" thick. No leaks after a solid month of use. Requires purchase of a Big Agnes Pumphouse for efficient and moisture-free inflation. My wife and I had a problem. It was all because of the Canyon. Not the Grand, Zion, or Bryce, but the much smaller gap that opened up between our backpacker’s… Full review

REI Flash All-Season Insulated Air Sleeping Pad

The REI Flash four-season pad outcompetes nearly every other pad in its class but its one flaw is a serious one; evidence suggests that many of them leak at the heat welded seams. Let me start by saying, the REI Flash All Season Pad has exceeded all of my expectations. It’s warm, really warm. I’ve used the pad this past summer in Northern MN where temps are consistently in the low 50's at night. Each time, the pad kicks back so much heat that I have to unzip my sleeping bag (I have used a 20°F… Full review
