At 3” thick, this pad offers both plush thickness, generous size and increased warmth. Great for those that move a lot while sleeping, want the most support, or plan to sleep in cold weather. For extra cushion you can add 2-3 extra breaths. But there is more than just comfort, with a 9.6 R-Value this Camping Pad is perfect for keeping your body warm during those COLD NIGHTS! The pad also has a preposterous warmth to weight ratio and a more durable bottom layer of fabric, making it clearly one of the best pads on the market.
