    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.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    ...comfortable ! Used this pad on Rainier and slept like a baby. Very packable and light weight which is key on long treks. I ordered the large and it fit quite well with me and my sleeping bag. Highly recommend!

    Got it for my sister who is going to Colorado this Summer for a backpacking trip. So far testing it out in Florida, she says its comfortable and working out great!

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    Bought this as a gift for a friend hiking the Grand

    Great balance of size, cost, and comfort. Packs down super small for backpacking yet is actually comfortable on rough terrain.

    Exactly what i needed

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

    I have been sleeping on cheap mats for a few years from walmart. The first night on this was amazing. I definitely shouldn't have waited this long to convert....

    Good, convenient, beautiful!

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

    I am very satisfied with the goods. Now these rugs will serve me on my hiking trips in the mountains, keeping my sleep in the teplela and making it much softer. Many thanks to Backcountry for the fast delivery and for a very nice price for the goods. I will recommend to all my travel friends to shop at your store. Thanks again!

    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.


      • 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!

      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.
