It's just as light and packable though, with diagonal-cut foam that adds warmth without sacrificing lightness. It still has the ProLite's WingLock valve for easy inflation and fast deflation.

    Comfy but Bulky

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

    Bought this originally for a thru hike but I didnt realize how big it is when packed down, however, I would still reccomend this because it is really comfy. Also it wasnt compatible with my lost dog sleeping bag, so that's a huge bummer. Only gave four stars for size

    Does the job

      Good sleeping pad, decently comfortable and very lightweight. It is a minimalist pad so it is quite thin. A little on the louder side, but not terrible. A good choice for a backpacker who needs a good nights rest.

      Great buy but be careful

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I think this is a great buy. I can't imagine sleeping without a thermarest sleeping pad. They are comfortable, warm, and pack down very small. My one reservation as I have bough several of these, is that they tend to get punctured. Just be careful where you sleep. Besides that, it is a great item.

      Really comfortable

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This is a super comfortable pad. Maybe the most comfortable I’ve ever seen. The only decision you need to make is whether you want one this big. The size makes it hard to pack inside or on the side of the pack, which leaves the bottom, where it is more prone to get punctured. I think personally I would get the pro-lite but not the plus.

      Camping in Style

      Got this for a newlywed couple, and they love them! Said they have not had a better night sleep while camping before, and they go out A LOT! 10/10 would recommend.

      Comfortable Sleep, Quick Use

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Finally invested some money in a good pad and so glad I have. I can sleep on this pad on some of the rockiest grounds, but it also works really well on a cot or in other camping situations where you need a little extra cushion. Super fast and easy to inflate. I don't need to blow up myself at all, which is such a change from cheaper pads. Easy to pack up as well, excited to take it backpacking eventually.

      I absolutely love this pad

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Favorite sleeping pad that I have ever had. I used it on a bunch of backpacking trips in the summer and even winter. It folds down super small and is very light. Recommend for any backpackers looking for a new pad.

      Very comfortable and easy to pack

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Taken this on several trips car and backpack camping and it is very comfortable. It is easy to fold up if you go slowly and compress air out as you go. It definitely needs to be opened up and then folded up a day before your trip.


      • 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!

      Hiked The Grand

      • 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.

        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.
