Thermarest Z Lite Sleeping Pad

  • Exceptional Durability: Closed-cell foam is incredibly durable, providing an exceptional value and many years of worry-free performance.

      Comments about Therm-A-Rest Thermarest Z Lite Sleeping Pad:

      As soon as I received this shipment, I unpacked it and laid on it. It is surprisingly comfortable, long enough, and though I was concerned about the accordion style fold up, it packs just as easily on my pack.

      Better price here than all the other outdoor suppliers.

                  Comments about Therm-A-Rest Thermarest Z Lite Sleeping Pad:

                  Used these for the first time last weekend backpacking. I am a side sleeper and always have have hip problems whether on a Thermarest or air mattress, but I had no issues with this. I even slept on my stomach with no pain, and that normally hurts quite a bit. I thought the pad was amazing for what it is, and think I will also use it car camping from now on instead of the air matress that always leaves me sore.

                  My husband on the other hand didn't like the pad. This could be because there were three of us sharing two (4 year old in the middle) and he was only on it partially, or it could be that he just needed more padding.

                    I love this pad. I used to have a self-inflating, and this one is half the weight with twice the comfort and even less bulk. I use it for sleeping on the ground or in a tent, even in a car. I also use it to sit on logs or the ground or sometimes I even do yoga on it...It's just so darn comfy. The eggshell design makes it easy to pack and it doesn't slip anywhere at any time. I'd even sleep on this instead of my bed at home! Definitely worth checking out.

                      Before the neo-air, this would have been given a high rating. I found it to be that extra bit of padding that would protect from small lumps and roots, essentially improving the chances of sleeping well. Its primary selling point, however, was its weight. It no longer appears to be worth the price, as there are now comfortable mattresses in the same weight class.

                      This pad is not very comfortable but it keeps you from freezing and you dont have to worry about it breaking since it is just foam and not inflatable.

                        I already had one in orange and for tactical field use I bought this color. It is super easy to strap to my ruck and because of the egg-crate texture, doesn't slip out of the straps. It's thicker and more comfortable than a standard issue pad. Not as comfortable as an inflatable for a side sleeper like myself. It's great for what it is
