Therm-a-Rest Prolite 3 Sleeping Pad
I finally gave in and got myself a sleeping pad - the Therm-a-Rest Prolite 3. Depsite all my friends making fun of me carrying it around because I don't "sleep on the ground like a man", this thing weighs less than a pound, and packs very well with the stuff sack. I suppose sleeping on the ground can be soft, but I get the last laugh when we wake up in the morning after a night in a shelter and I got a great night sleep and my buddies are still achy from the ground. The Prolite 3 Sleeping Pad is worth its weight in gold.
