Product Highlights

A true multi-purpose mattress, the Therm-a-Rest Trail Lite self inflating sleeping pad is ideal for campers as well as budget-minded backpackers who want one pad that can do it all. Lightweight, durable fabrics and a streamlined shaped keep weight and size to a minimum while maintaining comfort and durability.

Interior foam provides the Trail Lite with a full inch-and-a-half of cushioned support. Lightweight, durable polyester fabric protects the interior of the Trail Lite from wear and tear.

The self inflating design allows you to simply unroll the Trail Lite 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 Trail Lite 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 Therm-a-Rest Trail Lite is available in Regular (20" x 72") and Large (25" x 77") sizes. A stuff sack (included) aids in packability and provides water-resistant protection.

Sizes available: Large, Regular

Therm-a-Rest part numbers: 05201, 05200

  • JOE Z. Mullica Hill NJ

    Likes: This sleeping pad works as advertised. Lightweight and easy to inflate, deflate, roll up, and secure to backpack. Also very comfortable.

    Dislikes: no complaints.

  • Nick M. Parlin NJ

    Likes: Nice pad. Good weight to size ratio. Very comfortable for the size.

    Dislikes: Nothing so far

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: I buy this for my boy's scout backpacking. It is light weight and very comfortable. The sack is useful. Highly recommended.

    Dislikes: No.

  • Charles S. Austin TX

    Likes: Good compromise between weight/stuff size and comfort/insulation for a cool to warm weather pad. Therm-a-rests tend to be more expensive but also seem to be more durable than other pads. Tapered shape and rounded corners are desirable features.

    Dislikes: Nothing

  • Matthew M. Jacksonville FL

    Likes: Compact light weight. Rolls up tight in stuff sack. Very comfortable. Highly recommended.

    Dislikes: nothing

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: The trail light is an excellent pad; this 1.5in thick pad provides great support and comfort. Completely deflated, folded, and rolled up its extremely compact.

    Dislikes: The trail light is perfect. The stuff sack could be a little smaller; the pad rolled up expands in the stuff sack.

  • Kyle E. Mount Sterling KY

    Likes: Lightweight, compact and ample padding for someone who usually has sore hips after multiple days on the trail. This pad is just as advertised.

    Dislikes: Nothing

  • Chris K. Omaha NE

    Likes: Bought this to replace an older Trail Lite pad, which I have found to be a good compromise between weight and comfort. Was pleased to see that the 2011 model is a few ounces lighter, mostly due to the slightly tapered shape and more rounded corners. When packed, the 2011 version fits inside a backpack whereas the older version had to go on the outside. Good to see that Thermarest has started including stuff sacks with their pads.

    Dislikes: Nothing so far.

  • Tyler C. Riverdale UT

    Likes: small stuff size light the only way to go, Bought my wife one last year and she let me try it out. had to get one great new pad for this year with good reviews

    Dislikes: the stuff sack that comes with the pad is no good plan on getting a new one this pad fits in the red pro lite stuff sack ,and you can use the other one for a food bag , or pillow or something
