Sierra Designs Granby Insulated Sleeping Pad

With the Granby Insulated Sleeping Pad, Sierra Designs brings a comfortable entry to the market. Easy setup and take-down with a two-way valve and SD's Burrito Bag for storage. Enough insulation for cool nights, but not too much for summer use, make this a great three-season option, especially for those who sleep cool. Could be paired with other pads to create a true cold weather system. Sierra Designs, long known for its shelters, continues branching out into other areas with two sleep pad options… Full review

Swiss Gear Self Inflating Mat

Worthless. Weld separated on second use. Trying to make a claim under the warranty was impossible. Do not buy, rent, or borrow! Full review

Klymit Insulated Static V Luxe SL

Very good mat for big guys for winter camping, ideal for back or side sleeping. Perfect for winter camping. I was camping on snow; under the pad I had only a folded tarp and I had no coldness on my back or side while sleeping. I used it with a down sleeping bag (1100 g 850 cu in). Inflating for me is about 15 breaths. Deflating is comfortable because there are separate in and out valves. Its weight is 880 g; maybe it's almost 1 kg, but the pad surface is very big and even a 190-cm tall guy will… Full review

NEMO Astro Lite

Only used it twice, inside a tent, with a ground cloth underneath the tent. It started leaking after that and was flat every morning. Bought this new. Blew it up and left it in my gear room for a week before my two-week expedition and it was fine. While traveling the pad was kept rolled per instructions and in a hard aluminum case with other soft gear such as clothes, jackets, etc. Night one and two were great, very comfortable. Night three and on it leaked to totally flat every night. Our group… Full review

Therm-a-Rest NeoAir Topo Luxe

The NeoAir Topo Luxe offers excellent comfort for a price in weight. For "comfortably light" hikers (not ultralight!), this is the "recliner" for your back country living room. Warm enough to take you into at least the shoulder seasons, unbelievably comfy, sturdily constructed, and much quieter than other NeoAir models. Weight is the big issue (1lb 7-14 oz depending on size), but the 4-inch height might have to be factored in for those who are tall enough to be near your tent walls. At this height,… Full review

Coleman Rest Easy Camp Pad

Forget your lantern or light. This pad gives off so much high static electricity and it HURTS. Could this be very dangerous in a gasoline-driven car? I am deeply concern. Full review

NEMO Tensor Alpine

The NEMO Tensor Alpine ultralight sleeping pad is a do-it-all pad. It’s small and light enough to carry into the mountains, it’s warm enough to use in all four seasons, it’s comfortable enough to sleep soundly through the night, and it’s easy enough to inflate/deflate that you won’t dread setting up or tearing down. This pad is the warmest I’ve ever slept on and one of the easiest to inflate/deflate. Conditions: I’ve tested the NEMO Tensor Alpine pad (Wide/Long option) over the course… Full review
