If Your Queen Size Mattress Won’t Fit In Your Pack…
If you have ever laid down on the ground without an insulative pad, no matter how warm your sleeping bag is supposed to be, you will freeze from conductive heat loss. Your pad is as important as your sleeping bag for staying warm and comfortable in the wilderness. There are several types of packable pads, with various levels of padding and insulation.
Typically, the lighter, thinner pads, aren’t as warm or as comfortable as their plush, thick counterparts, so there is often a trade-off between packability and comfort. However, the latest advancements in technology have allowed back country travelers to sleep well without lugging a big heavy pad into the woods. Come on down and check out the latest pads from Therm-A-Rest, Exped, and Big Agnes.
