  • As featured in many reviews on line - in places such as Trailspace. This is one of our best kept secrets - an amazing value. 2017 Stock replenishment coming soon.Big Brand Name Backpacking air mattresses for under your sleeping bag can be expensive. It is not unusual to see brand name sleeping pads for over $100. We found this generic model that sports many of the features of the big brand names for a much lower price. Hurry though -- we have a limited supply.

    I like how easy it is to use. I also like its light weight, the cushion and insulation it provides, and its resistance to punctures.The only dislike that I have thus far is the fraying around the heat-sealed edge that I identified during the Field Test. While this has not increased substantially during the long-term test period, the picture to the right shows the extent of the fraying.Overall, I am quite pleased with the Therm-a-Rest ToughSkin as a backpacking mattress.

  • Two of the car camping mattresses we reviewed fit into this category, the and the . Essentially, these mattresses consist of a lightweight, inflatable backpacking air mattress paired with a piece of memory foam on top and a zip-over soft cover. They are adaptable and versatile because you can remove the backpacking mattress and use it by itself should you want to, and then use the cover for added comfort and warmth when camping at the car. It is worth noting that the while the NeoAir Dream comes as one complete package (sleeping pad and cover), Big Agnes sells the Sleeping Giant and the air mattress to go inside it separately.

    Versatility is a metric that takes a lot of different factors into consideration, including some of the other things we rated for. In a nutshell, the most versatile mattresses are the ones that best answer this question: Can I use this pad right now, no matter what the activity or season? Our Top Pick for Convenience, the Therm-a-Rest NeoAir Dream, makes an excellent case for always answering that question with a yes. It packs down very easily into a relatively small bag, making it easy to carry around. Its setup and take down is very simple, it has good insulating properties, and it has the ability to separate into solely a compact, lightweight, backpacking sleeping pad. It also has some qualities that other mattresses don't, like straps designed specifically to help marry two single pads together to form one. The Big Agnes Sleeping Giant system, paired with a QCore SLX backpacking air mattress, proved to have the same level of versatility.

    Thus far, I am very pleased with the Therm-a-Rest ToughSkin backpacking mattress. It provides excellent cushion, insulation, and there have been no worries of punctures. The ToughSkin is extremely easy to use. The mattress inflates on its own, but based on my personal preference; I add a few breaths of air to get the mattress "just right." The valve works well, I can close it quickly without losing much air. Once closed, air does not escape.
