Rated 3 out of 5 by from Warm & easy to pack, but NOT for side-sleepers I really wanted to love this pad, but after 3 backpacking trips in varied conditions, I've decided that I have to return it. The Good - the pad is very easy to pack, and it's not too heavy. Set-up is a breeze. The pad is very warm - I slept down into the high 30s with no problems. I loved the 66" size - I'm only 5'0" tall, and have a petite size Big Agnes sleeping bag. This pad works perfectly in the pad sleeve. The Bad - as a side sleeper, this pad just isn't thick enough. I always woke up multiple times per night with my hips on the ground. Drove me nuts. I will be returning this pad and trying the Sea to Summit Comfort Plus Insulated mat. It's more than twice the price, but a good night's sleep in the backcountry is truly priceless. If you're a back sleeper, I would still recommend this pad, though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy and worth both the money and weight This sleeping pad is amazing. I thought I had great sleeping pads in the past but inflating and reclining upon this pad for the first time has opened my eyes to the greatness that a Therm-a-Rest can be. My 5'3 frame maybe short but I've got some hips and still found this remarkably comfortable as a side-sleeper. I recommend it highly!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pad is great; bag is not I LOVE this sleeping pad, but the bag does not have a pull pocket on the end which makes it difficult to get the pad out of the bag. This weekend I struggled to get the pad out of the bag, resulting in the pad popping out of my hand and tumbling down our campsite drop off to the lake below :(. My boyfriend has a Therm-a-Rest pad, same one but the men's version that's over a decade old and it does have a pull pocket. You can't see the bag in the packaging so you can't make a fully informed purchased decision and I do feel like people need to know this. The pad itself is wonderful; it's easy to use and light and very comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from VERY comfortable! This sleeping pad gave me a great night's sleep while camping. It's warm & comfortable, and had just enough cushioning - I actually had to let some air out to give the pad more give. :) Highly recommended!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from good except women's sizing Very comfortable and light and packed well. My only problem was that it fit my body too perfectly.... I'm 5'4" and if I wasn't in the perfect position all night my feet would slide off, making them cold in colder weather or wet in a leaky tent. Exchanged for a regular instead of women's prolite. WOULD RECOMMEND SKIPPING WOMEN'S SIZE

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable but could be more portable This pad is comfortable and warm (One of the main reasons I bought it was for the high insulation rating). My only complaints are that it does not compress as small as I'd like it to for it's size, and it's too short even for a short female like me. I'm 5'1" and when I stretched out my toes hang off (and lay on the cold ground). According to the sizing chart it looked like the only "female" size offered, so I bought it figuring I'd be fine if it was designed for a female of average height as I am short.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great mattress! I'm a Peace Corps volunteer serving in Burkina Faso, West Africa. I sleep on this mattress every night. It's very comfortable. My own only wish is that it were longer. I'm short to begin with (5'2) but when I use a pillow with this mattress my feet hang off the end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for side sleepers and those who get cold I have used this sleeping pad once since purchasing it, and am happy with it. I used the Z Lite Pro sleeping pad (size small) underneath because I get very, very cold at night and because I already owned it - I like to get full use out of things. Using both pads worked very well for warmth, and was pretty comfortable. However this pad works just fine on its own. I find the backpacking blow up sleeping pads very uncomfortable- to bouncy and not good for a side sleeper. So this sleeping pad was a good alternative. I used it at about 50% of max inflation for comfort (don't like firm), and didn't wake up sore even with sleeping on my side most of the night. Good value for the price. Good for women who get very cold sleeping, and lightweight enough for backpacking. I opted not to use the stuff sac, and used a sport wrap instead which was very efficient. I rated it a 5 because it is excellent for the price and value, however there are more comfortable sleeping pads if you are willing to spend the $$$

Any other side sleepers out there that have used this pad? I've used the Klymit Static V for years and have never gotten a good night sleep on the trail.

Asked by: cml3rre
​The ProLite Plus Sleeping Pad measures 1.5 inches in thickness. This is a full inch thinner than the Static V and probably would not be any better for a side sleeper. The Big Agnes Q Core series are thicker pads and would be more comfortable for a side sleeper. https://www.rei.com/search.html?q=Big+Agnes+Q+Core&ir=q%3ABig+Agnes+Q+Core&page=1

I've researched other ThermaRest sleeping pads and one semi-consistent complaint seems to be how noisy the pad is. Can anyone vouch for how noisy (or hopefully quiet!) this pad might be?

Asked by: northwoodsgal
The Therm-a-Rest NeoAir series pads did have a reputation as being noisy due to the lightweight polyester used on the outside. This has since been updated with a softer, more "quiet" fabric for 2015. Having said that, the ProLite Plus will not make much noise.
