Positive Reviews:


I have used two different Thermarest pads for many years. As I get older, I find getting up is a lot harder than it used to be, and I needed to find something which would keep my joints from aching after sleeping on my side.

This pad was expensive everywhere I looked, but extremely popular in its ratings, so I decided that paying more for comfort was worth the risk. I was not disappointed! I slept soundly and rolled out of bed without a single ache!

Additionally, I found the insulation provided by the pad actually caused me to be too warm. I have never had that happen before. (What a pleasant problem to have!) While that was not the driving force behind pursuing this pad, I was pleased to have this experience.

It is not the lightest pad, but it packs up quite small into its own stuff sack, which fits easily into my backpack. It takes about a 2 minutes to blow it up the with the pump, which is part of the pad.

I am a confirmed fan of Exped now and am planning to purchase the Comfort Pillow next. Take a chance and buy this pad; you won't regret it if you value your sleep when camping.

Pricey, but a warm sleep on cold nights

Being a side sleeper, mats and self-inflating pads are not for me, but air beds/mattresses I had used lacked the insulation to keep me warm on all but summer nights, so I bought this for a fall motorcycle camping trip. Although too heavy for backpacking, it packs down to a surprisingly small package, ideal for motorcycling. It was super comfortable and kept me warm in temps as low as 40 degrees F. I'm confident it would do the same in colder temps too. Be warned, however, the built-in pump is tedious and a bit awkward to use. Ditto for the Exped pillow pump, and unless you're Aeolus, forget inflating the large size mattress I got by mouth. Had I not been able to jury-rig an adapter that let me inflate it with a battery-powered pump, I would have returned it and looked for another solution.

10 nights at Philmont Scout Ranch

I am not an ultralight purist, but do try to minimize weight on every piece of gear EXCEPT for my sleeping pad. With a good night's sleep I can handle about anything the daytime throws my way. I'm 6' and 235 and this was the best pad BY FAR I have ever used. Worth every ounce.

I tend to toss-n-turn a lot when I sleep and end up on my side for most of the night - which led me to Exped's Synmat pads.

My pack was 31 lbs (dry, but w/food/gear) - as weighed at the Welcome Center at Philmont.

I do plan on using the mat for other camping trips with my scouts and family. To save money, get a Synmat 7 or 7.5 basic. Otherwise, this is the best you can buy and worth every penny.

Like sleeping on a cloud!

A friend had one, so I checked out the reviews, etc. This pad is what I have been looking for! I've been camping with Scouts for years and never slept that great. With my new Kelty 0-degree Cosmic Down bag (CampMor purchase), I am warm and comfy. I sleep on my side so I need thickness--it was awesome! My shoulders and hips were not sore at all and I slept great. It takes a few extra mins to pump-up and due to the high R-value, it's a little heavier than others of this style, but still packs in a small included pouch. RECOMMENDED!

Rad sleeping pad!

I lucked out and accidentally bought the "DLX" version of this pad. My girlfriend has the regular version and loves it, I thought that I bought that one but turns out mine is DLX, which just means that it is wider and longer! Score for me.
It was strange to pump up at first using the built in pump, but once I got the hang of it was cool. Seems like the first pumps don't do too much, then it inflates quickly at the end. I stayed warm and comfy all night, didn't roll off or bottom out. I'm sold.

Great sleeping pad

replaced my thermarest. great for backpacking, packs smaller and lighter than thermarest. Not minimalist equipment, but for those who want extreme comfort when sleeping at a decent pack weight.
In combo with closed cell foam pad underneath could be used for snow/winter camping.
Guests have used it when sleeping over and are very comfortable on it.(only of course when the guest bed is already taken)

simply awsome pad. very comfy for oldies

I love the ease of pumping it up. I don't like blowing up mattresses my mouth. Nice large size for stretching out yet it rolls up small for ease of packing. Not tiny for backpacking but great for shoving into kayak hatches. And it fits back into it's little bag when your done. But the best is Campmor. My favorite store!!!!!!

You need one

Spent 8 days in the Bob Marshall wilderness camping. This mattress is the best thing since canned pop. If you are increasing in age (ie. 50+) this will save your bacon comfort wise. Be patient inflating with the internal pump system, but it is correct technology to prevent moisture inside mattress.Very good product.

Best sleeping pad I have ever used

I purchased a couple of these for a camping trip to Alaska that our old thermarests were not sufficient for. I was sold on the insulation, thickness, ease of inflation/deflation, and temperature rating. We have never been so comfy camping! While they seem pricey, they are worth every penny.

Very comfortable sleeping pad!

This is a big improvement over my older standard thermarest pad that this replaced. It's easy to inflate and is so comfortable. I can lay on my side without my hips or shoulders touching the ground. Packs up easily and is very compact. I use this for bicycle touring.

Neutral Reviews:

Lightweight but slow to inflate

Used it for staying in a dormitory with bunks without mattresses. While the pad was definitely narrower than the bunk...the pad did not move or hiss when I shifted myself on it during the night. Instead of needing to be re-inflated every evening...I pumped it up every 2-3 days just to keep the pad plumped up. The initial pumping was tiresome and laborious though the 35 minutes I spent made me wish I had a electric pump that could fill the pad faster.
