Hi, I'm looking for a recommendation for a sleeping pad. I'll be on a boat traveling the Keys in late July. I'm not sure what R value I should be looking for, I need something ultra light. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you
I don't think you will need much R value in the Keys in July. I would go with a closed mesh pad, simple and low maintenance.
not really, it was only mid April, but it was quite warm at night, mid 60's, everyone had a different blow up pad.
I think any low R value pad, like a normal thermarest neoair, would do fine. I recommend trying it out on the living room floor before hand.
A boat deck in mid-July in the Florida keys is likely to get hot. Maybe not the highest R-value, but I think I'd look for a pad with a little more than the run of the mill pad just to keep the heat from coming through from the deck. Might help keep you a little cooler at night. Insulation stops not only the cold from coming through but the hot as well.
