Padded Ground Sheet Source on 06/15/2012 06:02:07 MDT Print View no longer carries assorted sizes of the "padded ground sheet."

My 1/4"x24"x72" pad from sulak46 only weighs 3.8 oz and works well for me, but is wearing out. I think it was made of "Plastazote" but I'm not sure. (That's what the remaining framesheet at sulak46 is made of.)

Can anyone suggest an alternative source of such a product?

MLD has the "Good Night EVA UL Foam Pad" but it's only 1/8" thick.
The Gossamer Gear "Thinlight" pads are a lot heavier.

It's a little heavier, but search for Landau or Volera foam like they use for upholstery. Comes in different thicknesses.

This might be too thin, it's more like a glorified groundsheet that can be used :
-under a superlight inflateable (such as klymit)
-as a framesheet in your pack
-as a sitpad (you can double it up, triple it up for more comfort)

Multimat do tent underlay:
I have used this, it is very tough, but now I tend to use laminate floor underlay, which is much lighter and wears out quick, but is v cheap, so it doesn't really matter. I have a big roll I bought from our local DIY shop and when I need some more, I just cut off a length and trim it to the width I want.
