Therm-a-Rest Z-Rest Mattress - Regular Sleeping Pads Review

Therm-a-Rest Z-Rest Mattress - Regular


Description
The most compact closed-cell EVA foam sleeping mat on the market!. This unique sleeping mat folds accordian-style and instantly unfolds flat without curling. Egg-carton pattern of mat creates dead air space for insulation and when folded, the egg pockets nest together compactly. Extra compression is applied during the molding process, making the hinges super-strong so they won't tear or give out.

Summary:
I camp with the Boy Scouts in the mid-west approximately 30 days a year, all four seasons. I own at least three therm-a-rest self-inflating mattresses of different sizes and prices and I would trade them all for this little gem. This pad is the best yet if price,weight and comfort are a priority in your life. If asked to keep only one pad for year round use, I'll take Z Rest! True winter time luxury is a Z-Rest pad under your self inflating pad!

Summary:
I have had this pad for 6 1/2 years now and I love it!! It is compact and light and alway reliable. I have used it on five 60 mile trips to the BWCA and one 30 mile trip in the mountains. I have also used it in winter camping (in combination with the ridge rest) for 6 trips to the BWCA (One winter trip a year, one summer trip a year). It's great for the price I paid!

Customer Service:
Never needed it

Summary:
This pad is not the best choice if space is a consideration, but it rates high in terms of simplicity and reliability.

I go on an annual early spring canoe/camping trip with several friends. Most of them use self-inflating pads. When the temp is low it seems to take their pads a long time to flatten out and inflate. The Z-Rest is ready to go immediately.

The reverse is true in the morning. While my friends are trying to roll and deflate their pads I've finished folding the Z-Rest and am reaching for the coffee.

It's simple, comfortable, inexpensive and gets the job done.
