TAR ProLite 3 Size Small

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I recently picked up the small (20 x 47) Prolite 3 to use for 3 season. This is actually an irregular pad, which all I can find is that the logo is a bit wrinkled looking. Other than this, it works fine, and has not noticeable defects.

My size small weighs 11.2 oz sans stuff sack. (Not sure on the weight of the stuff sack.. I never use them.)

I have been a fan of the ProLite 4 for a number of years, but stopped carrying it when I got my NeoAir due to the weight. However, I find that the ProLites are quite comfortable pads for me, and rate them high due to this.

As well, I like that this pad uses a heavier, yet more durable 70D material on the bottom. This makes site selection a little easier on the brain, however, as with any air pad, always bring a repair kit anyway.

I give this pad 5 stars cause it just works.
