Girlfriend Loves it
Bought this for my girlfriend to use when we do overnight snowshoeing trips. She has used it for ten total nights now in the snow and it keeps her warm. All she uses is this, a sea to summit thermo liner, and a 0 degree mountainsmith sleeping bag and she sleeps warm till about below zero. Which is pretty good considering she seems to always be cold.
Wife has no complaints!
My wife is a stomach sleeper, and a cold sleeper. She slept through the night on this mat (she's 5'2" - 115lbs) and didnt find herself slipping off at all. Another top-notch product from Therm-a-Rest
Amazing Sleeping Pad
Although it may weigh 20% more than the traditional Women's Prolite Pad by Therm-a-Rest, you will love how well you sleep on this pad! I replaced a vintage 20 year old Therm-a-Rest pad that was heavier and bulky with this pad and couldn't be happier. It is small, lightweight, and easy to strap on to any backpack or throw in with your camping gear for a weekend camping get away. I've had mine for 2 years now and it has held up extremely well. I wouldn't ever consider to make a camping or backpacking trip without this pad!
I bought this pad reluctantly, as I was taking a backcountry hiking trip in Montana and knew Id be sleeping on rock and roots. This mattress turned out to be a lifesaver. Its padding made it so that I could sleep comfortably on unfavorable ground, without ever noticing patched of discomfort. This truly was worth the expense, and its lightweight structure made it the lightest item in my pack to carry. It folds up nice and small, and takes no time to inflate. I just love it and its become one of my "must have" items on any future hike trips!
ok this may be a totally sexist question...
ok this may be a totally sexist question and who knows what people will think. So what is the difference between the male and female version? The insulation rating for the female is like 1. higher which might make it worth while for this masculine guy to sleep on one
The fit of the women's version of the prolite plus is tailored to have narrower room in the shoulder area and more room in the hips, whereas the regular prolite plus (men's version, if you will) is wider in the shoulders then tapers down towards the feet.
It also seems that the pad, like women's sleeping bags, is built with more insulation because, in general, women seem to be cooler sleepers than men. Not always true though, as my wife is a warmer sleeper than I.
Best Ever Pad
First time EVER that I've not felt the ground and not woke up with painful hips! Very compact for backpacking.
When will this come back in stock? I could...
When will this come back in stock? I could get it from REI, but I'd rather get it from backcountry :)
it's totally in stock right now.
I bought this item to use on a 4 day hike to Machu Picchu (Peru) and a 6 day hike to La Ciudad Perdida (Colombia). It worked well, and didn't add that much weight to my pack. Everyone else was using the sleeping pads provided by the tour company. I was the only one on the Machu Picchu hike that didn't feel cold at night. I think that says it all!
It's a therm-a-rest what else is there to say
Bottom line if you're in the market for a sleeping pad you're better off spending whatever difference there is in price on a therm-a-rest mattress of some kind. This particular model is overkill if you're in the market for something small, light, or summer season in nature. However, i bought this model specifically for winter backpacking and I couldn't be happier. I'll obviously use it in the summer unless i need to save some precious inches of space in my pack. I work as a helicopter rappeller for the forest service in the summer and we've used the thermarest trail and prolite series extensively. Frankly, we beat them up pretty hard and out of 40 therm-a-rests we might have two get a leak per season.. which is impressive when they are dropping 250 feet out of a helicopter in a cardboard box onto god knows what rock or shale infested mountain side. I wouldn't waste my money on any other sleeping pad out there.
I brought this sleeping pad on a 30 day NOLS course in Alaska. We slept on many scree fields and I was still comfortable as can be. It was also very insulating and I was never cold. I had a women's specific sleeping bag which fit perfectly on the pad, not too long or short. Towards the end of the course, it did get a hole due to a sharp jagged rock sticking out of the tundra. I was able to fix it with the repair kit and it has worked just as well since.
Comfortable & Dependable
I use this sleeping pad for backpacking and motorcycle camping. I also recently started using it inside my travel trailer. It makes the RV bed a little more comfortable. The 1.5" thickness seems to be just right. I've tried a 1", and it was just too thin. Anything thicker would be too heavy and take up too much space. I'm 5'4", and the length is just right for me. It does a good job insulating me from the cold ground and provides enough cushion and support for me to sleep on my side. It's been comfortable and dependable during the two years I've been using it.
