THERMAREST Z-Lite Sol Regular sleeping pad - is most versatile and compact closed-cell mattress from Thermarest. It is lightweight, it weighs around 410 grams, so it is perfect for gram counting backpackers or for people looking for a very affordable and lightweight sleeping pad.
This pad has a silver reflective coating and R-value of 2 which is higher that we would expect from such a lightweight sleeping pad. It is also perfect for pairing with another inflatable pad in the winter to bolster the R Value of another pad.
This silver material is actually a thermal reflective barrier. It is going to reflect your heat back to you to make it that much more thermal efficient and increase overall warmth by nearly 20%.
The other stand out feature here is the egg crate design. As you fold this up the egg crate design really folds down into itself and that saves a lot of space. You can lash it to the outside of your backpack or if you travelling it packs down to be really small, so you don’t notice it.
This pad has multiple uses that go far beyond just sleeping on it at night. You can fold it up and create a really cushioning seat if you are backpacking and stop for lunch. You can put it on different surfaces and not worry about it getting damaged. If you worry about durability issues associated with all inflatable pads, there is no way that you can puncture or pop this sleeping pad. It is very durable over a long period of time.
It's a great alternative to an inflatable mat in hard terrain.
