I have had my Prolite pad for nearly two years now. It is a regular in my backpack.

On very cold trips I take my Big Agnes Insulated Aircore, but for most trips the Prolite comes along. My model comes in at 1 ounce lighter than advertised (1 lb 3 ounces versus 1 lb 4 ounces). I often strap it on the side of my smaller packs. I don't use a stuff sack.

Knocking on wood, I have not had any leaks or pinholes to date. I am gentle with my Thermarests though, and keep them in my tent.

If one can get past the hot pink color, it is a comfortable pad, easy to use and deflate.

Price comparison from GearBuyer: Therm-a-Rest ProLite - Women's priced at: $57.34 - $119.95

For comfort I would rate this only a 2 compared to my Big Agnes Air Core pad.
Maybe a little unfair 1" verses 2.5"

Weight rates a 2 - for at 1 lb 4 oz without comfort rates low on my point of view.

I really do not see much difference in this pad compared to my ThinLight when I am on it.

Ease of use rates a 5
It folds up pretty small and also is great for a frameless pack. Two puffs of air and you are good to go.

Durability rates a 4
I do not just throw it down on rocks, but I am not that careful with it.
Mine is about 2 years old and still looks new.
