Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pad I have used this pad for over a year in all 4 seasons for both boyscout camping and backpacking. Just used it for a weeks long hike in the White Mountains of NH. My pad and 45 degree bag fit in my sleeping bag compartment of my backpack. I have used this pad for over 40 nights and have had no issues with sleeping on my side. I have used it down to -2 in the winter and it worked fine, no cold spots. The pad will inflate on its own when it is warm. It does take time to inflate when it is below 20. Otherwise I never had an issue with it. I have 3 of these pad for my two kids and myself. It rolls in half and takes up less space in the pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Nights Sleep I took the ProLite Plus backpacking for several days and could not have been more impressed. It is a great combination of quality, size and weight. As a woman carrying all of my gear, this sleeping pad was light weight at 1lb 4oz and small enough to fit in my pack. It is self inflating with a couple of breaths to top it off and quick and easy to deflate. I am a side sleeper who tends to feel everything under neath me and was completely surprised at how much cushion this pad provides. It was quiet, comfortable and did not slip, providing a good nights sleep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great, reasonably light weight I bought this to hike the John Muir Trial in September. I was about to buy they traditional egg-shell foam pad, but I'm a side sleeper and it was not very comfortable when I tried it. One of the sales guys recommended this one (THANK YOU!), and it felt comfortable on the test bench. Fast forward to my hike: I'm super glad I chose this pad. It packs small and is super easy to inflate. It's not the lightest weight sleeping pad, but I will trade a few ounces for comfort. I camped at temperatures down in the teens at night and never once felt coldness from the ground. The only difficult part to this pad is making sure you roll it back up tightly. Thanks for a good night's sleep REI & Therma-rest!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleep like a baby I bought two of these pads! One in size regular and one in size small for ultralight trips. I love both of them! This pad is extremely comfy and has enough cushion to keep my hips off the ground even while side sleeping. They both pack down small and weigh next to nothing. It keeps you warm. I slept a night outside in sub 10 degree weather with it and it did great. In my opinion, this is the best pad on the market. Comfortable, compact, lightweight, and durable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not So Reliable The first one I bought was in 2010. It leaked on the very first night, so I took it back and exchanged it. The replacement gave me the comfort and insulation I required for about 18 or 20 nights. At that point, it came un-laminated on the inside, forming a bubble. The first night with the bubble was manageable, but the second night, the bubble grew more, rendering the pad useless. Luckily there were dead leaves underneath me, and I got a little bit of sleep. I do not think I over-inflated it, because I always leave a little give in a pad, to conform to my hips. I do not know why it delaminated, other than it was a sub-standard product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Would be great except... I just bought the small version for a backpacking trip through Rocky Mountain NP. I like the weight savings compared to other pads and to the full length version. After falling asleep on it on the first night out, I woke up a few hours later and it was completely deflated. Same thing every night thereafter. I double checked the valve, couldn't find any punctures, and couldn't hear any air leaking (must have been a slow leak). I was essentially sleeping on the ground. Perhaps it is a defective pad, because otherwise I really liked it. Well designed, my sleeping bag didn't slip off the top of it, light weight, insulated well enough for alpine summer nights, and (when inflated) very comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Durable of the Lightweights I've used many many sleeping pads over the years as a guide. I've tried the gimmicky pads, the ultra light pads, basic pads. This pad is hands down the best option out there, if you are serious about having lightweight gear that will hold up to the real abuses of spending long amounts of time in the backcountry. It has kept me warm and comfortable in quinzhee's on backcountry ski trips in Montana, in tents high in the alpine tundra of southwest Colorado, under tarps in the rugged and soaking wet Appalachians of North Carolina, and it's even kept me afloat for some lounging on zero days on lakes and rivers. After all of this abuse I haven't had a single complaint, or even a single leak. Don't waste money on other brands or pads, Thermarest really is the best.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job I bought this to replace the RidgeRest closed cell pad I had used form many years to reduce the volume/bulk in my pack. The pad insulates and cushions surprisingly well for something so small and light, but you have to be very careful with punctures or leaks with anything inflatable. The pad is not really self-inflating. It fills about half the way on its own, but is easy to top off by mouth. for camping at temperatures well below freezing, I put a closed cell pad under this.

What is the weight limit? I am 6'4", 240 lbs and solid. Will this pad hold up for long lasting use?

Asked by: WilliamCollins7
​Therm-a-Rest does not specify a weight limit; they claim their pads are designed to hold the weight of one person. The only limit is what is comfortable to the user. For heavy people, they mention topping off the mattress may be necessary once during the night.

The previous Prolite Plus had a hard surface on the bottom. The new one does not and is more prone to punctures. Why? And is there a mat by Thermarest that offers the same puncture protection as the initial Prolite Plus?

Asked by: bikeramble
There was a previous version of the ProLite Plus Sleeping Pad that used a heavier denier of polyester fabric than the current model. This is Therm-a-Rest's fast and light line of pads, so it was changed to reduce the weight. For a pad with a heavier fabric you may consider an option from their Trek and Travel line of pads (Green) or Camp and Comfort line (Blue).

I just bought my wife a prolite plus WR. We unrolled it last night with the valve open as directed...and it still has not self-inflated. I know the instructions say that the inflate time is a function of storage position and time. But it seems odd.

Asked by: PAmtnMAN
Self inflating air pads such as the ProLite Plus Sleeping Pad are very tightly rolled when they leave the factory. Manually inflating the pad is typically required when using the pad for the first time. Once the open-cell foam core has expanded, the pad should inflate on it's own moving forward.
