The Therm-a-Rest ProLite Mattress is a sleeping mattress that won't weigh down your hiking pack. The Atmos™ foam pad comes in four sizes, ranging from 36 inches to a whopping 77 inches (in length). The fabric on the outside is a strong 50D mini hex rip polyester, built to take on the rigors of backpacking yet soft enough to the touch. The mattress inflates itself once you lay it out and open the air valve, creating a 2.4 R-value and a 1 inch thickness that keeps your body off the cold ground. Just add a few breaths of air to the pad for firmness before snuggling into your tent. When you wake in the morning, release the air, fold and roll 'er up and jam it right into the included stuff sack. Easy peasy, right into your pack!
FEATURES of the Therm-a-Rest ProLite Mattress
The lightest self-inflating mattress available
Diagonal-cut channels in the foam reduce bulk and retain heat better than straight-cut foam
Ultralight, diagonal-cut Atmos Foam and a tapered shape keep the ProLite mattress extremely pack friendly
Expanding foam core self-inflates; top off with just a few breaths for personalized firmness

Great Pad for BackpackingPad strikes a nice balance between weight (very light), packability (doesn't take up too much room in your pack), and comfort. I'm a big guy (6' 4", 270 lbs) so I ordered the large. Bought this pad for an upcoming West Coast Trail adventure. Seems very durable but make sure you get a repair kit just in case. A comfortable, good nights rest and lighter/more packable than the ProLite Plus. This is the one to get...

Old stock?I purchased the Thermo-Rest self inflating sleeping pad. After I unpacked it and unrolled the pad on the living room floor the next morning it was still only partially inflated on one side. I did try to inflate by air but felt something must be wrong with the product.

Lightweight and packs smallSolid sleeping pad: it seems to expand fast and hold air well. This is definitely a good purchase if you want a sleeping pad that packs small. If you don't mind a minute amount of extra space and weight, go for the pro-lite plus, it's thicker and more comfortable!

Nice, light, compactI bought these for a group of 16 hikers and for a nicer quality pad the cost was great and the shipping was so fast. They come very nicely compactly rolled which will make it easy to pack when we head to Mt. Kilimanjaro in February.
