Therm-a-Rest Prolite Sleeping Pad
4.5 out of 5 based on 9 user reviews.
|Self-inflating pads are the way to go if you're lazy, and sometime's I'm feeling really lazy.|
Comfortable for the thickness.
|A little heavy, but you've got to spend a little more $ for a lighter pad that's this comfortable.|
|The new prolite 4, neoair, or Exped synmat UL 7 or synmat basic UL pads. The last 4 are not self inflating, but Exped makes some nice extras like a pillow that doubles as a pump, and compression sack attachments that allow them to become pumps so you at least don't have to blow them up with your mouth.|
The synmat UL basic is comparably priced to the prolite, the others are all more money.
|Packs super small, Durable, I've used this Thermarest for 4 years or so and I haven't had any problems!! During the summer I use it 4 nights a week.|
|The only negative is that I have to blow it up with my mouth. This is probably because I don't always store it unfolded, but I use it so frequently that it makes more sense to keep it packed. I realize that blowing a Thermarest up with your mouth is one of the worst things you can do for them, but I can't figure out an alternative.|
|When I'm going to be sleeping in a Lean-To, I bring a closed-cell foam pad to place under my Therm-a-Rest to protect it.|

|Great lightweigt pad. Kept me warm during a winter camping trip to Mt. Washington, where I was sleeping on snow in -10F temps. It compresses to almost nothing, and when its inflated, is perfect size for me to lay down on (I'm 6'1").|
|I can lay on it, but forget about moving, or I'll roll off of it. It also takes a few inflation cycles to get the auto-inflate to work efficiently, so make sure you do that at home first.|

|Packs very small, comfortable, warm. Self-inflating is pretty nice. Best pad I've used.|
|ProLite Plus if you need/want extra padding.|
|My favorite pad. Very light, only weighs about a pound. Rolls up small and packs easy.|
|I don't recommend it for camping in the middle of winter|
|Very small & compact for the inflating pads I could find. Has yet to spring a leak and have used it moderately.|
|You have to buy the storage bag separately.|
|I love how small the Therarest prolite sleeping pad rolls up, and it is supper comfortable.|
|Great cushioning, fills up quickly, adds warmth to sleeping, packs easily & very small!|
