Product Highlights

The versatile Therm-a-Rest Backpacker Plus self-inflating sleeping pad is lightweight, durable, warm (R-value of 3.5) and packable enough for year-round backpacking and provides ample comfort for family or car camping.

Interior foam provides the Backpacker Plus with a supportive, comfortable 1.5" thick base. Lightweight, durable 150D textured polyester fabric protects the interior of the Backpacker Plus from wear and tear while providing a low-sleep sleeping surface.

A self-inflating design allows you to simply unroll the Backpacker Plus and open the integrated air valve. The pad's open-celled foam responds by soaking up air, similar to a sponge absorbing liquid. Once the Backpacker Plus has inflated, you can adjust the firmness by adding a few puffs of air or pressing down lightly on the pad to release air.

The full dimensions of the Therm-a-Rest Backpacker Plus self-inflating sleeping pad are 20" x 72" x 1.5". A stuff sack is included.

  • Corey L. Seymour IN

    Likes: Very light weight. Very comfortable and good for side sleeping!

    Dislikes: Not self a inflating as advertised; however, very easy to blow up.

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: A good intro into the 4 season pad, especially for the price.

    Dislikes: Still a bit larger than I might ideally like, but it's 4 season and for the price I'm pleased with it.

  • Ashley S. Virginia Beach VA

    Likes: Much more comfortable than sleeping on ground, and warmer too. Packs small enough, seems to be good quality.

    Dislikes: Slides around under pad, kinda smells if left packed up too long.

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: The Therm-a-Rest Backpacker Plus is exactly what it states. Weight, size, and comfort were great and the price was excellent. Easy to setup, roll up, and strap to your backpack. Bought two, one for an adult and one for a kid, both worked very well on a long weekend hike on the Appalachian Trail in PA during late September. Definitely was impressed with the R value and texture of the pad of to keep the bag in place. Scouts can set it up, roll it up, place in the included stuff sack (yes-bigger than needed), and attach to their pack with ease.

    Dislikes: Stuff sack could be more form fitting, however at least it is included.

  • . Bethesda MD

    Likes: Great pad with quality materials. Easy to roll up and strap onto a pack. Very comfortable for how thin it is.

    Dislikes: It would be better if it was more compact.

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: Solid pad no frills

    Dislikes: The weight could be a little bit lighter

  • Austin B. Auburn WA

    Likes: Not too heavy, great price and works to keep me warm. I've used this on several back-packing over night trips where the temp. got to about 30 degrees and this seemed to keep warm the whole night. Airing it up is fast and easy.

    Dislikes: The only thing I would change if I designed the mat would be more color options, a dark green would be nice.

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: We bought this for car camping and it is perfect. Very comfortable and only requires about 12 puffs of air to get it to the firmness I prefer. I really like it filled so it may take someone else less puffs. I wouldn't recommend it for anything but car camping because it's pretty bulky.

    Dislikes: Nothing, perfect for our intended use.

  • Sean S. Cincinnati OH

    Likes: Comfortable pad at a good price. Slow to inflate and required a top off, but not really a big deal. Folds up decently small.

    Dislikes: The stuff sack that came with it is too big for the pad.
