I would like to solicit the advice of those that post here as to what they use for a sleeping pad. I must be getting soft. I use a Z rest and I don't think that it is enough for the winter conditions that we are getting this year.

I would appreciate any kind of advice for winter use.

Pads

I have three:

A Slumberjack self inflating. Works great!

A Miltary foam pad. Lighter weight, very durable and care free.

A three section, 2 inch thick pad full size. I found this thing on the side of the road when prospecting and if I am boat camping it goes along.

I have a few of the Therma Rest self inflating pads and they are worth every penny. I used mine last Feruary on top of my cot, and it kept me comfortable-I have yet to use it to sleep on the ground in winter conditions though.

Sleeping Pads

I just recently got back into camping with my wife after about 10 years of indoor hybernation. I gave away and sold a lot of my old gear so when it came time to get ready to go back out I made a hasty decision at a Sams club and bought two "Wenzel self inflating camp mattresses" They are basically knock off's of thermarest but do not pack down as small and are way heavier ( they cost about $30 each as well which is half what Thermarest cost). They sleep OK for car camping but I went ahead and purchased a regular therm-a-rest and now I remember why I loved the first one. They are comfy, pack down well and are really durable. I cant really say anything bad about the chep pads but the term a rest just plain sleeps better to me.
