The Therm-a-Rest Trail Scout is a self-inflating sleeping pad for weekend backpackers and summer camps. The Trail Scout is a bump up from a closed-cell pad, providing added warmth and cushion. The pad will inflate itself, just lay out flat and open the valve. Once the foam core has time to expand, a few extra breaths via lung power will adjust the firmness to your liking. All your camping pals will be so jealous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love. Love. Love. I bought this when I knew I was going to spend a year doing a lot of camping and adventuring. Thanks to its thin and light build, I was able to squish it in to almost any packing arrangement (and, if all else failed, lash it to the side of my pack). It was easy to get inflated. I can fill the whole thing with only a few deep breaths, which made setting up camp quickly much easier. It's held up astoundingly through many rigours. It kept me surprisingly comfortable and warm through any variety of experiences.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Time Tested Favourite. I bought the Therm-a-Rest Trail Scout last winter, and since then I have put this thing under some serious stresses. Its been a long time favourite of mine, and I'm proud to say that "I respect this pad" for its Warmth, Comfort, Functionality, and Cost. This pad is a true winner, especially if you are new to the game. It is an excellent series and hope to see them for years to come. The only thing I would say about this pad that I would say is opposing is if you are intending to sleep on the ground, Its material can be punctured quite easily.... however the repair side of things is a breeze. Gorilla Tape To Go sticks to this pad like no other, making it the easiest pad repair I have ever done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the thrifty backpacker! I was in great need for a new roll mat. Considering I was using a cumbersom old air pad that was like sleeping on a half inflated balloon. I stumbled across the trail scout. It was light weight, compact and durable. Not to mention the price was right. I have thus used my trail scout for five years now without missing a beat. Comfortable to sleep on especially for my arthritis. It's not as thick as most pads but for the buck it's well worth it! I liked it so much I purchased a second one for my wife. Since then we've been taking our dog with us and as long as there is a blanket on the pad her nails don't cut into the pad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable!! I was so surprised at the comfort of this pad. I am a big guy (6'2" 250#) and this has not let me down. Self inflation is quick and I only have to add 4-5 puffs of air to get it to my liking. On VERY cold nights, I put it in a home made sleeping bag liner (flannel from local craft store) and it slides nicely inside my mummy bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Comfortable! I impulse bought this pad at my local sporting goods store because it was one of the cheaper options. I was initially a little concerned since it was only and inch thick, but that hasn't been a issue at all! I've taken it on two trips so far, and I've already noticed a difference in how well I've slept. Another unexpected use I got out of this was recently I stayed at a friends house, and had to sleep on the floor, but since I had my trail scout in my truck, that wasn't a problem at all. I would highly recommend this to any backpackers and campers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely comfy... like it! I bought this baby in Medium with my MJ Reward $, and man it is comfy. For your information, I have not used this for outdoor usage... yet. My course work requires hours of studying so I sometimes can't go home before the next day's morning class. So I just... sleep on the floor of my office. Even when done with the second year, I presume I will still be using this pad for nights of research to come. For all PhD students out there, hang in there!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super durable and no slipping and sliding! I bought two of these for me and my partner two years ago for backpacking. While they aren't the lightest thermarest sleeping pad, the scout has two features I adore. First, the scout has a rubbery, almost sticky rubber coating. This is great because it keeps the pad from sliding around on the nylon floor of the tent and it helps me and my slick sleeping bag stay on the pad. I often hear that as a complaint about thermarest pads - not an issue on this model. Second, this pad is durable! We use our pads a lot and have even used them day after day for several months at a time (and that use was outdoor in WA, OR, CA, MT). I would guess we have at least spent 200+ nights on our pads and after all this time neither leaks. Highly recommended

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light, Durable, comfortable. It's been about two years using this product. It's incredible the comfort and low packaging volume for the price.
