30 inch Sleeping Pad on 05/04/2014 17:32:33 MDT Print View

Hey Guys,

So I'm searching for an inflatable sleeping pad that meets these specs:

- 30" width, 70"+ length
- summer/fall temps in eastern US
- under 2 lbs.

So far, the closest match I've found is the Nemo Cosmo Air 30XL at 2 lbs 2 oz but rated to 30-40F. I really wish Therm-a-Rest made the NeoAir XLite and XTherm with a 30" width (hint, hint if they're reading this!).

Any other recommendations? Thanks!

I have a 30 inch NeoAir. It's actually the new NeoAir Dream for car camping, but inside it is the 30 inch NeoAir Camper model that can be used by itself for backpacking. It has two different packing options -- folded in half for a skinny 15 inch "bedroll" configuration or folded in thirds for a thicker short package. Both are easy to manage and fairly light at just over 2 pounds.

Super comfortable. Especially the Dream configuration, which also provides a ton of protection to the mattress.

I didn't think switching the Dream to the NeoAir made sense -- why bother for a car camping product. But, I've completely changed my mind. It's two products: the best car camping mattress ever and a fantastic backpacking mattress.

Now if they would just up the R value...

OK, I know it's only 26" wide, but how about the newly-released Exped Synmat MW? 19 oz.
