I got the regular size Base Camp ThermaRest. I love this new version of the original orange ThermaRest that I've used for over 25 years. I actually like this new one better because the fabric is not as slick and it seems thicker when inflated. It is plenty long for me, 6'3", and thick enough for comfort at 180 lbs. It takes awhile to reach it's maximum inflation when new, but after that, it fills on its own just fine. I also bought the regular size to fit on top of my cots whereas the large size is too wide. Would buy again no problem.
Comfortable & compact enough to store in a river sleep kit
We use the BaseCamp on our Grand Canyon raft trips & our folks love them. There is just enough cushion between their bodies & the terrain to give them a good night sleep after a day of exploring the wonders of the Canyon. The folks can settle down for a good night sleep while gazing at our amazing clear starry skies.
I purchase this mat in 2000 while I was serving in the military. It's been all over the Middle East, mountains and desert. It serves me still in the hills and mountains of the UK. If I'm out in the sticks at night it goes with me.
Our class B RV has single beds convertible into a full size which is very practicle. My husband is happy with the mattress firmness but I wasn't ; I wanted something extra, compact, double duty use and easy to use. This matress provides just that. I can set it up quickly as it is self inflatable; it's also used as a beach pad when needed ; it's easy to clean; and, it doesn't break the bank.
I already had a Neo Air (25x77) that I use in my "Tent-cot" and love it so I bought this larger one for sleeping in my truck. I needed the extra width. I only wish I had learned of these years ago. I fought Many regular air mattresses for years, never more. Therm-a-rest has saved the day!
Super comfortable, looks to be high quality item. This review is only based on a quick test run of the sleeping pad at home, we have not used them on a camping trip yet. The BaseCamp pad seems very comfortable and is made very well. We are planning to use them as an improvement to the poor bunk mattresses in our camping trailer. This should improve the sleeping when we use the trailer, and can also be used if we decide to go tent camping.
