Rated 5 out of 5 by from Actually Slept! I just got back from 4 days and 3 nights in The Enchantments. The longest, most intense trip I've taken, and I slept like a baby, even in the snow. Bought this as a recommendation from the Sea to Summit rep who called it the "Goldilocks of the backpacking world". Awesome. I'm a side sleeper, 5'8 female, 140lbs, and I can't get over how comfortable I was. First trip I've actually slept during. I also love that it folds up small enough to fit in the lower compartment of my Deuter 45+10 with my sleeping bag and Sea to Summit pillow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from attention side sleepers! I bought this sleeping pad before my recent backpacking trip to Banff. After hours of sleeping pad research, and analysis paralysis I choose the comfort light insulated, and I am so happy with my purchase. I am a side sleeper, and this pad provided great hip support, and was extremely comfortable. It is not very noisy compared to other pads. I luckily had an exped schnozzle and it works perfectly with the sea to summit valve to pump this pad up in no time. I stayed so warm on this pad at high elevation with lows around 35 degrees in my North face cat's meow 20 degree bag. I am super pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm at night I used this on a three week trip last fall in the mountains and with a hammock, I was as comfortable as ever. Except that it would side around, but that's a normal hammock issue and nothing to do with the pad. REI actually sell wings to slip over the pad to prevent hammock sliding. The pad takes less than ten breaths to inflate and the biggest seller for me was the large dump valve that enables me to deflate and pack up (in the included stuff sack) in probably 2 minutes...or less if you don't pack as neat. Great pad, was worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth it Okay, this is an expensive sleeping pad. But, it's worth it. I've tried others but this was the best I've experienced. It kept me WARM on a cold night (got down to around 40 degrees F) and it is also comfortable. It is NOT noisy when you're moving/turning during the night like some other brands are. Inflates quickly, deflates within seconds. Compacts down. Very light. Overall, a great backpacking product. Why not splurge and ensure you have a great nights sleep so you can enjoy the most of your day out in the back country?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT pad! We shopped allllll of the sleeping pads for a BP trip on the JMT... Bought them, tested them, returned them and this one is by far the BEST! For weight, size, comfort & R rating. Never leaked any air which obviously is huge! Valve is quick and easy! Don't under estimate this aspect! Being able to dump the air all at once for easy pack up and go is a definite bonus!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! As a backpacking guide, mountaineer, and fitness professional - I choose this pad over all the others. Well worth the high price tag - it has better support than even the most expensive Big Agnes, despite being thinner. The valve system makes blowing it up faster, and deflating it is practically instant.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warm and super comfy sleeping pad -- but expensive This is a great sleeping pad. We previously had an older version of Thermarest pads, which were very comfortable but were pretty heavy for backpacking. I bought the Large/Wide version. We needed a large version (I have fairly broad shoulders and chest), and settled on these as a bit of a gamble if I'm being completely honest. There were some reviews online, but not tons, since they are relatively new, and I just wasn't sure how well they'd work -- or how comfortable they'd be. Most other "air only" mattresses I had tried were either way too noisy (NeoAir) and/or felt like inflatable pool mattresses. After 2 weeks of camping+hiking, I can say they totally fit the bill of comfortable, light and warm. The design on the sleeping pads is really solid: you get full usability of the pad surface, you don't bounce around, and you can sleep quietly. I move around a fair bit when I sleep (back, to side, then back again) and these pads were no problem. We used them in temps ranging from 35-40F with no issue whatsoever. Only downside: the price. They are *really* expensive, and it's why it's not a 5-star review. Honestly, I almost rated them at a 3 due to the price. With tax, you're looking at $200 per pad - almost twice what a ProLite Plus costs, which is (very) marginally heavier and plenty comfortable. If they were 25% cheaper, it'd be no question of the value.

Questions & Answers

What's the weight limit for this pad?

Asked by: HayBales
I always end up sharing this pad with the person I'm with (which is super annoying) but I have had no problems and that's probably 300 lbs. I recommend not blowing it up to the max for two people or you'll be trying not to roll off the sides because of the way the air cells are.

 If I'm 5'5", would it be safe to get small or would the extra length on regular be better?

Asked by: Agaru
I always go for the shortest pad. I am 69 inches tall and use the 66 inch pad. My feet go on my empty BP, and I often sleep coiled up. Save the weight. Used this method in 2010 thru hiking the AT.

Do I need to use a air pump to air the pad up?

Asked by: Garrett_engelhard
A pump is not necessary for this pad. Approximately 5-8 breaths into the valve can fill this up.

I am considering buying this pad. I am 5'5" and weigh 185 pounds. I have total hip replacements and sleep on my side. Is this thick enough so I won't feel my hips on the ground? A review said it was not recommended for side sleepers. Thanks

Asked by: KPCandCAB
For a person in your situation we recommend a sleeping pad that is at least 3 inches thick. The Comfort Light Insulated Sleeping Pad​ is only 2.5 inches thick, so it is not ideal for your needs.

I've got a Big Agnes LuLu Petite bag. It says that the pad should be 20"x66". This pad is slightly larger at 21". Do you think it will still work?

Asked by: Penny
We do not recommend this pad for your sleeping bag as it is larger than the recommended pad size.

I prefer to use a pump.  Which one would work best for this pad, the Sea to Summit Jet Stream or Air Stream?  Thanks much.

Asked by: Mary
The Sea to Summit Jet Stream Pump Sack is a great choice for inflating this sleeping pad.
