    From summer alpine to winter tours.

    All-season warmth, self-inflating convenience, and lightweight foam make Therm-a-Rest's ProLite Plus Sleeping Pad a favorite among backpackers, winter campers, and ski tourers. Its Atmos foam reduces weight, enhances compressibility, and adds warmth with Therm-a-Rest's patent-pending diagonal-cut design. The self-inflating valve gives this pad plenty of cush, and you can add a few extra breaths for customized firmness.

    Great little pad

      I used this under my Never Summer sleeping bag on a trip into the Sierras last weekend. The padding was adequate and the insulation it provided was fantastic. The size worked well for backpacking with a bag and gear in a 65 liter pack. I would definitely recommend.

      The opposite of a Neoair (good!)

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Previous to the ProLite Plus pad, I used a (classic) Neoair for several years.

      Truth is, I've never really liked Neoairs. They're a pain to inflate after a long day of hiking. They're noisy. They feel kind of springy, as you might expect for an air mattress. They like to squish around on the shelter floor as I move in the night, so that when I camp with my wife under our 2-person backpacking quilt, it's necessary to join our 2 Neoairs together with elastic straps to prevent the space between our pads from opening up. I find that as I move around and lay on a 'new' part of the pad that's been exposed to the outside air, it feels very cold if ambient temps are below 55F, and takes a bit to warm. On top of that, the cold-air regions get pumped around the pad as I move, rapidly cooling the areas that were warm. On nights that are "threshold" for my quilt with some wind to boot, I find the Neoair seems to take just enough additional heat out of the system that things edge towards the uncomfortable. So, IMO, Neoair (classics) are not a particularly functionally warm pad in the shoulder seasons.

      The ProLite Plus is the opposite of all that. It's shockingly comfortable, IMO, considerably more mattress-like than the Neoair, and, I might add, far more comfy than the standard ProLite. It pretty much stays put on the shelter floor as I move. It doesn't have the bouncy feel of the Neoair. It's dead quiet. It's super quick to inflate. It's warm seconds after contact, and stays warm. The small size still fits nicely inside my pack, almost as well as the Neoair.

      The downside, is, of course, it's relative heaviness compared to air-based pads. I chock this up to "the cost of doing business"-- it solves enough problems that I'm willing to eat a little extra weight (my summer base weight is around 8 Lbs. with this pad). I have 2 ProLite Plus pads: one small, to reduce pack weight when warm weather camping where I don't mind having my lower legs contacting the ground, and a ProLite Plus Womens, for early and late season cold ground and when ambient temps drop below 55F or so. (The Womens ProLite Plus is lighter and slightly warmer than the Standard ProLite Plus, and works well for me a 5'8" male.)

      My wife and I have not missed, in the slightest, our Neoairs. I doubt we'll be going back.are

      Excellent Pad!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I've had this thing for years and have camped all across the states with this thing & it keeps on crushing. Whether you are throwing it down in the desert to camp or in the woods in the Appalachians this thing will get the job done. It is compact, light (for the price), & super durable. I highly recommend this for a first pad or if you're a baller on a budget.

      Super Comfortable Sleeping Pad!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Awesome sleeping pad from Therm-a-Rest! Works really well in all temperatures. The pad is pretty small in size and makes a huge difference if the ground is rough at all. Would definitely recommend the ProLite Plus sleeping pad!

      Perfect for what it is

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I've used this pad backpacking for the past 3 years with no complaints. It's not the lightest option (for that, go with the Neoair xlite) but it's super comfortable and bullet proof. I typically tent with two 60lb dogs who walk all over my stuff and no leaks yet.

      Comfortable

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

      I've used several pads through the years for backpacking. IMO, this one is adequate padding alone for lighter frames <200bs. Doesn't pack down as small as some but trade-off is warmth and comfort. For those who have been critical of the line, remember to read instructions...upon receipt, fully inflate with additional 2-3 breaths and store flat for 1-2 days. After that, release valve and continue to store flat. This will help to retain shape and help it to self-inflate after a day of backpacking.

      Great Backpacking pad!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I have had this pad for a few years now, and I have used the hell out of it! Only being a little over a pound in weight and it compacts down to a very easy to pack item. you deserve to be comfortable while out in the country! to be honest maybe the amount of use i have put it through has compromised the ability to retain air while i sleep on it but other than that I have had no problems! But at the price at 100 bucks getting three years of use I am happy and will gladly replace it for a new one :)

      great pad

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I am a side sleeper and this pad was great. I didn't feel the ground through it at all. easy inflation and holds it well.
      I got it on sale for a great price to boot!

      lightweight superchamp

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I added this to my collection this summer for some lightweight camping and its been an amazing addition so far. The pad itself is durable and has stood up to some harsh ground without a problem not to mention how light it is and how easily it packs away. Ten thumbs up!

      Great Pad

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

      I purchased this pad for car camping and back packing. I've used it for both. It is relatively comfortable and sets up and packs very quickly.

      When I first took it out of the package I found that inflating it manually helped speed up the process.

      A bit small

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

      Keeps me warm and comfortable, packs well and seems sturdy....but I wish it was a little longer. I am 5'2" so I thought a small would be okay but i suggest getting a larger size if you aren't a child!

      Inflate and forget about it

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This is a solid pad. I haven't tried it in particularly cold conditions yet, so I don't have a lot to say for insulation just yet, but it holds air well, and is comfortable enough to sleep soundly. Great price, too!

      Great Pad

        I bought this as a gift for my friend and he as the following to say about it:

        I got this sleeping pad along with the Therm-A-Rest Saros 33 Synthetic. Together they work great. The temps plummeted down to the low 30s after a hiking in the low 70s all day and I stayed fairly warm. I was able to move around without slipping off the pad which is great because I toss and turn a lot. The pads self inflation worked fairly well but it took a while to really squeeze all the air out. It maintained its air wonderfully throughout the night. Overall this is a great set up for me.

        Killer piece, killer price

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

        Haven't been able to use it for anything other than car camping so far, but it's been great. Packs down relatively small. Easy to inflate. Really comfortable and warm

        Only sleeping pad you should buy

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        By far the best sleeping pad out there. Extremely light weigh yet one of the best sleeps you'll have outside. Packs down extremely small, so its great for hiking in or car camping.

        Can't beat the price for the quality

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

        This pad is bigger than I expected but provides great comfort and warmth. I would not recommend this for the ultra light backpacker but it is great for shorter trips and provides plenty of comfort even for car camping.

        Favorite Sleeping Pad

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        This sleeping pad is everything I hoped for AND more. It packs up small for having foam within the pad, this fills up in just a few big breaths. Fits well in my sleeping bag and stays inflated!

        The do it all, go anywhere pad

          It isn't a secret that Therm-a-Rest makes some of the best sleeping pads on the market. I personally have had mine for 14 years and have never had a problem with it. I have over a hundred days sleeping on that pad, and I can't imagine how different camping would be without it.

          I recently gave this pad as a gift for my dad. He has been a scout master for years, and just recently he received the silver beaver award for his dedication to the boy scouts. He spends more time sleeping in a tent than most anyone I know, whether it is with the scouts or with friends or family. Knowing that his pad was getting tired after years of use, I figured this would be a perfect gift.

          This pad is lightweight, has a great R value for most conditions, and it packs small. I'm sure that this pad will provide years of comfort, and will be as reliable as all the rest of the Therm-a-Rest pads my family has owned.

          Buy this pad and hit the trails, your next destination is waiting.

          Does this particular model have sticky material on either/both sides?

          OK, perhaps it was poorly worded. My 11 year old Thermarest that I'm still using is smooth as an ice-rink.

          The older 70D model in our stores down under has a distinct sticky/tacky feel to it, ie non-slip. With the change from the 70D to 50D material I wondered whether they had also turfed the non-slip surface. Thanks.
