absolutely worth the 10 oz penalty. i spent years with just a rolled up puffy, but i'll never go back now that i have this.
>>
>>1577201
people probably expect it to be some miracle, because it's colored silver on one side and has those little bumps
but it's still just a thin foam pad, what do you expect?
>>
>>1577201
I’ve used the same z-lite for as long as I can remember, in every camping situation. It’s a no bullshit product
>>

This is a pretty standard and well known sleeping mat. Nothing memey about it. You'd know that if you actually went /out/
>>1577201
>worth it
It's a cheap CCF mat. Personally I prefer them due to the folding style, easier to pack and lay down.
Also

you're doing this wrong anon.

I spent three months locked in a rusty brig. I slept on a steel floor that alternated from freezing to stiflingly hot and lived on a thin gruel and biscuits. After that a tent has always felt like a palace.

This, been using one for a couple years, not bad at all.

I bought one for these exact reasons, its great. Didn't even bother reading the amazon reviews

Oh I went out and I woke up 10 times per night because it's so uncomfortable. I prefer any air mattress.
>>
>>1577291
>so uncomfortable
oh man I sleep so well on mine. It's my luxuary mat. Most the time I just use a piece of 1/8" ccf. It's just enough to take the chill off the ground.

This. I have the Nemo and I wouldn’t go without it

Do you usually sleep on moss?

RidgeRest is betta. When I use my Half Dome 2 I just wrap the RR around the packed HD2 and strap to pack, which is more space economical than both a tent and ZL.
>>
>>1577379
Or, for the intellectually challenged, of which is the more standard here, I should probably describe it as roll the packed tent (in its bag) up in the RidgeRest, while compressing the tent.

I'm poor, so I use this swimming pool shit to sleep on.

I'm a side sleeper and basically use this to make sure my hip bones aren't grinding against the grounds. Works well.

It's trash, and obviously you are too. I've drank rubbing alcohol better than this.

When I can, the ground does have an impact on my campsite choice but I don't always sleep places that make that possible.

Absolutely, got it a week ago after again having a sore neck from sleeping on a puffy, almost a game changer

I got a lousy job on a ship when I was a teenager back in the neighties. The whore of a captains daughter accused me of raping her when she got caught in bed with another sailor on shore leave so I was left to rot in the bowels of the ship. I never forgave her that.

It’s not supposed to be the most comfortable thing to sleep on. It’s supposed to be an insulating pad that can’t fail. It’s perfect to layer with an inflatable sleeping pad when sleeping on snow and ice.

10/10 can recommend.

Fill it up to max, lay down on it, bleed the valve just a bit . . . perfect.

no way this is true.

Same, it can be uncomfortable as fuck when all you have is a cheap eva mat.
Has any of you trained himself to become a back sleeper? I feel like that's the goat position desu
>>
>>1578803
I just bit the bullet and bought a therm a rest xtherm so I can sleep on my side. Expensive as fuck but it's nice getting some good sleep.

Anyone used the Savota sleep pad? Thoughts on its comfort level for a side sleeper?

I have an alps mountaineering one from sportsmans warehouse. I slept on it this weekend. I side sleep, and toss/turn. It's excellent.

i'm a side sleeper with wider hips; i used to use the z-lite but i'd wake up sore. bit the bullet and got a sea to summit and i have no regrets, this shit is comfier than my real bed

U mean the one with the side flaps? That one is pretty cool and comfortable, use it very often
>>
>>1577204
This, absolutely love mine.

Comfortable enough for side sleeping? Is it padded well? A few vids for it but I have a hard time deciding its actual thickness and bulk when rolled up and flat.

Three times as big as an inflatable pad when packed, and only half as comfortable. Side-sleeping is agonizing, and they are quite narrow.

That said: they're cheap, extremely rugged, fast to deploy, and extremely useful for camping in places like the southwest US where the ground is covered in spikes.
>>
>>1577204
>>1577294
>>1578232
So you fill it up with air? does it crinkle or make noise at all? That shit would drive me nuts. I usually just bring a hoodie but it would be nice to have something better to lay on
>>
>>1577121
If people need anything thicker than jpg related, they should stay HOME...!
>>
>>1578803
I was solely a side sleeper but trained myself to become a back sleeper while /out/. The trick for me was to make sure I was super exhausted from the day prior, and then just look up at the stars until I fell asleep. Works like a charm
>>
>>1579938
>does it crinkle or make noise at all?
Well I can’t say it doesn’t make noise at all, but no, it’s not annoying or a crazy amount as long as you’re not jumping up and down on it. It also has a pretty comfy fabric outside “pillowcase”

Real men drink a case of beer (bottles), then crush the empties on the ground for a bed. If you're a pussy you can sleep in a shirt, but you may as well consider yourself a nancy-boy for the rest of your life.

Noob question, when you guys use these pads do you not use a sleeping bag? I imagine itd get hot with both.

As far as the bag goes? During summer camping I use a cotton sleeping bag liner. When I wake up around 4 am I slip a SOL escape bivy over the liner then get back to bed. I never get too hot
>>
>>1577509
There's no such thing as "good" vodka.

I used the klymit mattress, it was comfy and packs down smaller than anything else I've seen in its price range. On the first night of a 3 day camp the valve stopped working and I was stuck sleeping on the bare earth in an unusually cold canuckistan March. Then like a retard I bought the same brand because it was on sale, it's a gen 2 and hasn't broke down yet.
>>
>>1580121
That's my only concern about buying an inflatable. I like how small they pack but if it fails youre kinda dicked. Part of the reason why I havent moved on from my ugly foam blue babys first camp mat

Don’t you wake up drenched in sweat? Those things are 100% non-breathable right?

You might be thinking about the SOL EMERGENCY bivy. That's basically a mylar sheet. The ESCAPE bivy is spray coated with mylar inside and made of a fabric that let's moisture escape but keeps out rain and snow. I havent tried it in these conditions (I've read reviews that state it does) but for a fact it doesn't build up moisture. I've used it quite a few times in the summer desert. Also keep in mind that I only slip into it in the wee hours of the morning when I wake up a bit chilly, so that might be a factor. Plus side, that shit packs down TINY
From product description: "With the Escape Bivvy, condensation is no longer an issue, and you never again have to choose between staying dry and staying warm. The proprietary fabric lets moisture escape at the same time that it keeps rain, snow, and wind on the outside - all while reflecting your body heat back to you. Waterproof seams plus a drawstring hood closure and side zip mean you can seal out the elements entirely or use the bivvy like a traditional sleeping bag"

It's just enough to take the chill off the ground and cushioned just enough to take the edges of stuff. It's really meant to be last step before nothing. But it honestly make a difference. I'm not going to lie and say it's super comfy, but I sleep well enough with it.
>>
>>1579938
it's filled up with chunks of memory foam. no noise at all, it breaths, unlike a plastic lined inflatable, and laying on one part doesn't push all the filling to another part. it's basically a regular pillow, except it's small and compresses even smaller.
>>
>>1577204
I bought a cheap inflatable pillow recently and it's such a game changer
