Gear Review: Thermarest ProLite Self-Inflating Sleeping Pad - Next Adventure

Gear Review: Thermarest ProLite Self-Inflating Sleeping Pad

Value Rating: 9 Durability Rating: 9 Overall Rating: 9 Location of Test: Black Forest Trail, PA Duration of Test: 1 week Product Name: ProLite Self-Inflating Sleeping Pad Product Brand: Thermarest Best Use: Backpacking Therm-A-Rest ProLite Self-Inflating Sleeping Pad The Full Review: I brought the ProLite pad for a backpacking trip in Pennsylvania, and it definitely did not disappoint. It’s both ultralight and self-inflating, weighing about a pound for the regular length. Rolled up, it’s about the size of a Nalgene and is easy to strap onto the back of a pack. I did struggle some with getting it back in the bag it originally came in, and, while doable, it may be worth investing in a strap instead. Therm-A-Rest ProLite Self-Inflating Sleeping Pad I found that the pad typically self-inflated in about ten minutes or so, and I would then top it off with a couple of breaths to get it to be firm. it retained most, if not all, of its air throughout the night, remaining comfortable. On nights where I didn’t want to wait for it to self-inflate, it only took a minute or two to manually inflate it. I was considerably warmer when using the ProLite than I was on a night when I swapped pads with a friend. I would definitely bring this pad on another trip - it was light, comfortable, and relatively space-efficient.
The Good: lightweight, warm, comfortable The Bad: hard to pack, slightly bulky The Bottom Line: comfortable ultralight pad! SHOP SLEEPING PADS
