No Upgrade Needed

I just was looking at pads, thinking it might be time for a new one, but my Prolite 3 has been, almost literally, a security blanket during worldwide travel over the past 3 years. From the desert sands of Iraq to rain forest huts in Panama, and lots of other rough places, I've always slept well on this and it has often served as a chair or soft place to kneel while doing camp tasks. Never had a leak and packs relatively small. Have considered something a little thicker since I often end up on my side, but not sure I could trade it for the bulk/weight of a bigger pad. There are always trade offs, but overall, this has been one of my best ever outdoor purchases.
