A Trusty ClassicMy Ridgerest has held up through the years and is lightweight and easy to pack! Whether your going hiking or backyard camping, this extremely low maintenance sleeping pad is a great addition to your camping gear. With this pad, you don't have to worry giving it a little abuse in the trail because you know it will hold up to whatever is thrown its way. I have used this pad in a number of different situations, such as a dry place to sit when the ground is wet, under my sleeping bag in a tent, and under a sleeping bag in a hammock and it has exceeded my expectations for performance in every situation. This pad has always cut the chill of cold ground or air beneath me. I highly recommend this product for anyone who wants a no-hassle, trustworthy sleeping pad.

Good Product, Not For MeI was loaned this pad for a three night trip. It was lightweight. It rolled up nice. I loved that it didn't need air. It kept me off the floor, evened out the bumps, and protected me from the cool of the ground. I was loving it.
And then I rolled over onto my side to go to sleep. It was three nights of rolling over every half hour and finding new ways of sleeping on my side to keep off my hips as much as possible. I was sore for nearly two weeks after the trip to the point I even had trouble sleeping on my pillow top at home.
If you're a dedicated side-sleeper, stay as far away from this pad as you can. If you sleep on your back (or can put up with sleeping on your back for a few nights), it's probably a great sleeping pad. I'm just not the person to tell you so.

BasicI have used a ridge rest for many years of backpacking. It has always kept me warm and fairly comfortable. As I get older, and my back gets worse, it is more important to "contour" the ground with a hole for my butt. It is a long night if I don't get it right. Also, I have a large pack and put everything inside the bag, so nothing can drop off during a bushwack. The pad makes a cylinder on the inside of the bag, and everything goes inside it. Protects the pack material from sharp objects also.

Literally Indestructible (within reason)I've owned this pad for two years and have never had a single problem whatsoever, yeah it's thin and bulky, but super light. Of course, I knew what I was buying and didn't mind attaching it to the outside of my pack! Very cheap in price and is always great to have as a backup, especially since my self-inflatable pad just kinda died on me, no idea what is wrong with that one so I will be sending it back for what I hope is a repair. The RidgeRest is great, definitely good to have in my case.

Tough! But...I have had 2 of these since the 90's. They have been packed, squeezed, jammed, bent and lugged around for years. For all that they only show a few fray marks and some small chips out of the foam. Absolutely tough, no question about it. A 12/10 in the durability dept.
However in the comfort department, it is a half inch of foam. It is never going to be comfortable. It does take some of the sting out of small rocks, roots and ground lumps. It does block cold to about near freezing. Below that cold will still come through.
I use it for day trips and overnights. When you think about it you will proabably spend 8 - 10 hours on it, either sleeping or lounging around your camp. That is a big chunk out of your day. You may as well be comfortable. If I have to spend multiple nights out I take a real mattress.
A great mattress for certain purposes.

The best mat I ever hadI think there is no better mat for hard conditions. Or I don't know about it.
If you are into hard trekking, or classical mountaineering, this is a great piece of equipment. It is okeish to sleep directly on the glacier (not too cold, but still you would melt some ice. We use double in winter expeditions). It protects a bit from the sharp stones, so you will have a better sleep. Bulky, but I think it worth it.

Great budget, lightweight sleeping solutionI bought my basic RidgeRest over twenty years ago and I'm still using it. I realise that these days there are many more technical sleeping solutions however I still love my old ridge rest and it's been on all of my camping adventures.
These days, due to older bones, I sometimes will add an inflated mattress over the RidgeRest when car camping however when carrying my camping gear on my back I use the RidgeRest on it's own due to it's light weight. I know that newer mats may be lighter however I already own this so I'm happy to continue to use it. There's nothing to go wrong with the RidgeRest, it won't spring a leak, it's waterproof and can take a beating.
It's a little bulky however it fits easily tied either under or over my backpack and provides welcome insulation and cushioning. Of course, it also makes for a really comfy sit mat and I still use it with my old chair kit when car camping.

Stood the test of time!I have had my ridge rest classic for over 20 years and I love it. It's been all over the world with me, has kept me warm and comfy in some awesome spots, has been mauled by an overly-aggressive marmot and now helps me do mountain yoga. If you're looking for a long-lasting, no-frills, reliable trek pad, the RR Classic is a brilliant option.
