        Pad folds down incredibly small and compact. Perfect for backpacking.

        If not laying down (ie kneeling), you can feel the ground below you but when you lay down and distribute your weight you can't feel the ground beneath you. Good insulation properties

              Comments about Therm-A-Rest Thermarest Trail Scout Self Inflating Sleeping Pad with free stuff sac:

              I bought this and almost immediately after I received it, I knew it wasn't what I was looking for. It's too small and thin for an adult to use, unless you're going for super ultralight and don't mind sacrificing comfort for less weight. Plus the plasticky polyurethane exterior sticks to your body when you lay on it with no shirt and that's just annoying. It's the bare minimum of comfort in the self-inflating class of sleep pads. Better than a closed-cell mat? Sure! But my advice is to save yourself the time and extra shipping cost and go for one a few grades better than this one. I ended up returning this one and getting the Trail Pro instead, which I am very satisfied with.

                  My teenage son was given one of these a couple of years ago for use while camping and backpacking. He has grown a ton since then and he still uses this pad and finds it more comfortable than the solid foam pads we have. I like his so much I bought one. Its light, comfy, is minimal to pack and is easy to inflate. We just took them on a backpacking trip to the South Colony Lakes in the Sangre De Cristo Mountains in Colorado, with nighttime temps in the upper 30s and they insulated us well. Would definitely recommend this pad. Also, I intentionally purchased a small size, even though it isn't as long as I am. I'm 5'6" and its shorter than I am. That's what I wanted though. I only need the padding for my head, torso and hips and a smaller pad means less bulk and weight when backpacking. It's perfect.

                  There must be a place for this pad somewhere. It does not compact well for packing and it is heavy for it's thickness and insulation. It is sleep ready in literally seconds and anybody who sleeps on their back would love this pad. Side sleepers may find it too thin in spots. As a crossover of CCF and Air Mattress, it is designed well but weight conscious hikers will go lighter and car campers will go heavier. Must be a great use for this pad but not on extended trips in the backcountry or in the kit of an avid Car Camper.
                  Works great for what it's supposed to be for but not my first choice.

                  I have not opened it yet, I was waiting to see if I will actually be able to use it this summer as my daughter may have to back out of a planned backpacking trip in Sequoia NP in August. Paperwork is all saved for return if she gets a job and cannot make the trip.

                  • Q:

                    From looking at the specs, the pad looks different than the product "Thermarest Trail Scout Self Inflating Sleeping Pad" which is also sold at Campmor(different R rating, thickness). Is this true?

                    I can't find this exact pad with the listed specs on the thermarest website so I am not sure what model this is if it isn't the Thermarest Trail Scout.

                      A:

                      This is a 2013 version not the one you see on Thermarest website which is a 1/4" thinner and a lower R value. The 2013 is 1.25" thick verses the 2014 version that is 1" thick and the 2013 has a 3.7 R value verses the 3.4 R value of the 2014 model.

                      A:

                      Self inflating mean when you unroll the pad and open the valve the pad will inflate to some degree. To firm up the pad you will need a couple lungs full of air blown into the pad through the valve.

                      A:

                      A medium size pad would be best for a 5' person. It will cover the back and the thighs and give the proper support. A size small will also work, but will end at the knees. This will leave the legs portion of the sleeping bag ( provided you are using one ) off the bag.
