Body mapping technology helps you sleep like a baby.

Sleeping under the stars sounds romantic, but it’s no fun if you toss and turn all night. Avoid the princess-and-the-pea syndrome with the ultra-comfortable Therm-a-Rest Luxury Map Sleeping Pad. Therm-a-Rest drew on digital pressure mapping technology to identify common pressure spots, and then designed this mattress’s foam core accordingly to provide support where it’s needed most. By varying the density of the core’s die-cut perforations, they created the ultimate self-inflating mattress that lets you enjoy restful nights in the great outdoors.

Initial impressions after 7 days: Wow!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Well, this Sleeping Pad arrived to me about 10 days ago, and I've spent the last 7 days camping on it. So far, I am very impressed. You cannot feel ANYTHING that's underneath the pad: small rocks, pine cones, etc. I honestly didn't know that a sleeping pad could be this comfortable - about as comfy as my home mattress! The only issue I had was that my uneven campsite had me sliding off the mattress pad - but until these things come with seat belts (ha!), I'll just have to live with that.
On the weight spectrum, it is rather big & heavy, but for a car-camper, it's just the ticket.

Very Comfy

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

After much shopping around for a decent comfy thick sleeping pad, i found one at REI but more costly and a few more ounces heavier and .5 inch thinker (3.5) compared to this thermarest at 3inches thick,,

The price is right, just as comfortable as the REI brand as I am a side sleeper and wanted the Large for extra room when i sleep, the regular didn't feel right to me, so this one does. I plan to use it for backpacking as one gentlemen at REI mentioned he takes something similar in weight , i see why. You have to find something comfy for you body and if your willing to sacrifice extra weight for a better nights sleep, why not.. This will be my go to pad for car camping and backpacking, I'm a side sleeper-5'11-180lbs,, and the Large fits perfect. Im planning to pick up another one to complete my set..

great pad, for great price

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

I was able to use my AMC membership ( for a discount on this sleeping pad. I have not tried it outdoors yet, but it feels super comfortable indoors and worth the larger size for the comfort. I am looking forward to taking it on a few backpacking trips.

Although not mentioned in the description or in the specs, I was pleased to discover the product contains a thin carrying sack.

We camp in Michigan and sleeping gear gets...

We camp in Michigan and sleeping gear gets damp over night. We have used cots since they keep you well off the ground although they are not very comfortable. We also tried an air mattresses but they never seem to last long and you have to refill them everyday to keep them firm.
Our experiences of sleeping on the ground have been very uncomfortable because of moisture, even if it doesn't rain. Sleeping bags and pillows get very damp during the night and ruin your sleep.
Has anyone tried these pads under moist conditions?

Best Answer Responded on

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.

Worth every penny

Slept like a baby on this the very first camping trip I took it out. One of the best purchases all year

Does the XL actually pack down to 5.6"...

Does the XL actually pack down to 5.6" diameter? That seems really small... REI's 2.5" thick XL version packs down to 8.5"... This one is 3" thick...

Its worth the cost

I bought one of the Therm a rest for my first camping trip becasue my camping buddy insisted it was worth the cost.. He was right.
My wife and I recently went camping and she did not want a Therma rest and said her self inflating mattress would be fine.After the trip she threw it away and insisted that I buy her a Therm a Rest.
It is worth the cost if you are going to be sleeping on the ground in a sleeping bag..

Therm-a-Rest worth the cost

I bought a therm-a-rest luxury map sleeping pad for my first cmaping trip., I was talked into buying it by a friend who has used one for years. I was concerned about the cost but it was worth it I had three great nights of sleep on it ..

Is this too bulky for extended backpacking...

Is this too bulky for extended backpacking trips? Would I be able to strap it on the side of my pack reasonably?

Responded on

You can strap just about anything you want to a back pack, but for me this would just be too much for back packing. It's your back though.... check the weight.

(i.e. excellent car camping pad.) This is what the Dreamtime has underneath the foam cover.

weight is wrong

The regular weighs 3lbs 7 oz, not 2 lbs 9 oz as listed.

Responded on also shows the R value is much higher too- 6.8

Responded on

the weight and R values given here look like those for the 2" thick "BaseCamp"
