What is the most comfortable thermarest?
BOTTOM LINE: In our opinion, the Therm-a-Rest NeoAir XLite is the best all-around 3-season sleeping pad on the market. The XLite has a rare combination of comfort, support, warmth, and weight that make it very tough to beat for lightweight backpacking.

Should I get a regular or long sleeping pad?
Regular (typically 72 inches long) and long (typically 78-inch) pads will insulate your legs and feet—a big plus on chilly fall and winter trips. A short or 3/4-length pad (usually 47 or 48 inches) weighs less and packs smaller (you can put folded clothing or your pack under your legs and feet for some insulation).
Are sleeping pads necessary?
As you can see, sleeping pads are almost always necessary. Sleeping pads not only provide a cushioned sleeping surface to keep you comfortable, but they also provide critical insulation from cold ground temperatures.
How much do ultralight sleeping pads weigh?
around 1 lb
LIGHTWEIGHT: Your pad should weigh around 1 lb (or less). If you are winter camping, you might need to get a slightly heavier and warmer pad or subsidize with an extra warm sleeping bag.
What is a good weight for a backpacking sleeping pad?
In general, Ultralight Backpackers will want to stay under 16 ounces (1 pound) for a sleeping pad. Cheaper closed-cell foam pads fall in this weight class, as do many of the nicer air pads. You’ll be hard pressed to find a self-inflating pad under this weight, but air pads are the norm for Ultralight Backpackers.
How long does it take a thermarest to inflate?
Generally, it takes 5-15 minutes for any of our self-inflating pads to inflate on their own. That 10-minute variance range is probably due to one of the following factors: core construction, trained compression, elevation and temperature.
What is the Therm-a-rest Prolite 4?
The ProLite 4 is the most compact, four-season, full-length, self-inflating mattress Therm-a-Rest® makes. Mattress is engineered for extreme alpine climbing, adventure racing and long-distance backpacking for which reduced weight and bulkiness are paramount
Which Therm-a-rest inflatables are the best?
The ProLite 4 is by far the very best sleeping pad. Designed for comfort, warmth and very small pack size. The Therm-a-rest excels in all areas. Worth every penny!!! Price Paid: $94.95 I’ve owned and worn out three Therm-a-rest inflatables so far, since the very first ones came out. This ProLite 4 is by far the most comfortable of them.
Should I get the Prolite 4 long or 3 short?
I have both the ProLite 4 long (for winter use) and the ProLite 3 shorter version for summer/all around. Obviously I like the pads enough to have bought two of them, and providing I can get enough air into it for firmness (the 3 has an annoying valve issue that prevents me from puffing it up more than half-firm), they are quite comfortable.
What is the difference between neoair 3/4 and neoair Prolite plus?
The 3/4 weighs around 450g and the regular weighs some 670g, about double the weight of a NeoAir XLite, which is also 2.5 inches vs. 1.5 of the ProLite Plus (however, the ProLite Plus can be firmer, so the difference in reality is slightly less)
