Pads and Mattresses
What matters most, weight, comfort, or warmth when
you are sleeping on the ground with camping pads and mattresses?
Pads and mattresses which do you choose? Mattresses are more comfortable, but can be cold, lose air, may need a pump to inflate, and can slide around. A pad is lightweight, but thickness matters, and you want one that is wide enough so your elbows don't fall to the ground. But they combined the best of both worlds and called it Therm-a-Rest.
