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

Eureka! Singlis ST

Bad brass valves and bad valve seat to canvas attach. No quality control, not a stand up company. Quality control from Eureka! (Johnson Camping) is non-existent. The brass twist close valve in this air pad is often cross threaded, and thus impossible to close. I also received an air pad where the glue was nearly completely lacking between the pad canvas, and the brass valve's mount seat (which is made of a plastic or probably epoxy resin) for the valve to be pressed into. With this bad glue job,… Full review

Therm-a-Rest UltraLite Cot

This is excellent for side-sleepers! I can sleep through the whole night and wake up refreshed with no soreness. Packs down reasonably small and is reasonably lightweight. I have used it for backpacking. (Note: This is the newer version that's green, with crescent moon shaped side supports, not the full circles.) I am a side sleeper and I have had difficulty sleeping on traditional sleeping pads that backpackers use. I typically wake up multiple times each night, tossing and turning, and in the… Full review

Therm-a-Rest NeoAir

I have to disagree.... I had the older yellow versions of this pad. It was not a good experience. The pad leaked and had to be re-inflated during the middle of each night on its first excursion. When I sent it back to Therm-a-Rest, they said it was "to spec" and "that's normal". The next time I used it was the last  time. The valve wouldn't open to deflate it, and needed assistance in the form of my multi-tool. I sent it back to Therm-a-Rest. They replaced t and I sold it on that e auction site. Full review

Therm-a-Rest NeoAir UberLite

The NeoAir UberLite is a welcomed ultralight addition to the NeoAir lineup, 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 ounces 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
