​Sleeping pads: extra comfort & warmth when camping
Sleeping pads run the gamut from basic layers of foam that provide little cushioning, to deep inflatable mats for maximum comfort. Bear in mind that while foam mats may seem primitive, they’re essentially impervious to damage from any debris on the floor, tent pegs or whatever else might puncture your inflatable mat. If saving weight and space in your backpack is paramount, you can spend serious money on an ultra-light inflatable mat. However, such mats are less durable and need careful looking after – many even come with a repair kit. If you’re going to be camping in very cold weather, look for a model designed for this purpose that’s constructed from temperature-regulating fabrics – some even have down inside. Self-inflating mats are also available.

Sleeping Pads for Comfort and Warmth

Sleeping Pads

Sleeping pads are an essential part of every backpacking kit. They not only provide cushioning from the hard and often uneven ground on which your tent is pitched, but also provide insulation from the cold ground throughout the night. With a good sleeping pad underneath you, you can count on getting a night of high-quality sleep to refresh and recharge you for the next day’s hike.

Types of Sleeping Pads

Air Mattresses

Air mattresses are the lightest and most compact type of sleeping pad, which is why they’ve become a staple amongst backpackers. These pads use a layer of synthetic or down insulation or a series of baffles to provide insulation, but most of the air mattress is essentially comprised of air. Plan on spending a couple of minutes blowing into the valve to fully inflate.

Thermo Air Mattresses

Thermo air mattresses use a layer of open-cell foam within an inflatable casing to provide insulation and cushioning. These mattresses, often called self-inflating mattresses, will slowly fill with air after you open the valve. However, they’ll still need a few breaths to fully inflate them. The advantage to thermo air mattresses is that they can be quite insulating if you’re camping early in the spring or late in the fall when the ground is cold. However, they are bulkier and heavier than air pads.

Foam Mattresses

Foam mattresses are cheap and simple – essentially, they’re just a foldable cutout of closed-cell foam that uses small indentations to provide insulation. Foam pads have largely fallen out of favour because they are bulky and don’t provide the cushioning or warmth of air or thermo air mattresses.

Choosing a Sleeping Pad

Comfort

How comfortable a sleeping pad is comes down to personal preference. But in general, a thicker pad with more cushioning will be more comfortable to sleep on. For many backpackers, that pushes them towards air mattresses because they are relatively thick when fully inflated. However, keep in mind that the surface texture can also impact comfort. Thermo air mattresses often have a smooth sleeping surface, whereas many air mattresses have you sleeping on top of large baffles.

Insulation

If you’re backpacking in colder weather, warmth should take priority over comfort. Thermo air mattresses are almost always more insulating than air sleeping pads, although thermo air mattresses also vary quite a bit. Insulation is measured by the R-value of different sleeping pads, where a higher R-value indicates more warmth. However, R-values can be highly subjective as there is no unified measurement test for sleeping pad insulation.

Shape and Length

The shape and length of a sleeping pad is a trade-off against weight and size. Large rectangular sleeping pads will necessarily be heavier and bulkier than the same pad cut to the shape of your body. Many manufacturers try to balance comfort and weight by tapering the shape of their sleeping pads towards the feet. In addition, you’ll find shorter pads that can be used for women or three-quarter length sleeping pads.
