I've gone camping in damp conditions with a thinner thermarest and never had a problem. Most recent 10 day trip in BWCA with multiple thunderstorms was fine, as well as some humid Wisconsin camping trips.

It sounds like either moisture/dew/condensation is coming through the bottom of your tent, you sweat a lot, or moisture can't escape your tent (you create a mini-sauna)...

Have you tried putting down some type of vapor barrier underneath your tent? I used some cheap painters plastic and cut out a "footprint" that fits the dimensions inside your tent, or a footprint that you can't see once you place the tent on top of it.

As for H20 not escaping, try opening vents on your tent to see if that solves it. If you're sweating too much, try wearing less clothes.

Just took these on a 8 day trip in the Boundary Water Canoe Area in northern MN. These things rocked. I used these all day, every day. Only complaint, if you can call it that, was that the DWR started to fail after it was completely covered in soot/dirt/crap. I'm washing them right now and hopefully the water repellent will come back. Lightweight, convertible (zippers didn't bother knees at all), durable, dry quickly.

I'm 5'8" 140 and ordered a small/reg. Waist was a good fit but the inseam was long. Had my mom (skilled sewer) tailor them up to fit. Probably should have ordered a small/short.
