I'd love to hear thoughts or suggestions on comfortable sleeping pads. To start off with, it doesn't have to meet ultralight requirements, this is more for family/ car camping. When I go backpacking I chose light weight over comfort.
I've tried both closed-cell foam and inflatable mats from Therm-a-rest (not the huge ones, just the standard slim pads), as well as a synmat 7. I can't get comfrotable on any of them, even doubled up.
The Synmat may be uncomfortable beacuse of the baffles. I'm primarily a side sleeper and I find myself tyring to balance in between the "tubes". I also don't like how narrow it is, my arms slide off the edges, even in a mummy bag.
My two therm-a-rests are either too narrow, or not padded enough. I know nothing will feel like a matress at home, but there's got to be something better out there than what I've been using. I'd be curious to find out what has worked for other people.
Thanks in advance. Oh, I should add, although weight isn't a concern, packed size sort of is. I will be using this on motorcycle camping trips as well as car, so I can't be hauling around one of the queen-sized inflatable matresses. ;-)
