Therm-a-Rest BaseCamp Sleep System Video

Transcript

Providing maximum comfort for year round car camping and family camping, the Therm-a-Rest BaseCamp System consists of a self-inflating BaseCamp sleeping pad, a Ventra Down Comforter, and a Fitted Sheet that ties the entire system together. The BaseCamp System starts with the self-inflating BaseCamp sleeping pad. There is a 2 inch thick layer of open cell foam inside this pad so when you open the valve it will begin to draw air into the pad. To get it to its fullest thickness and firmness you may want to add a puff or two of air into it. If you find that is a little too firm you can always release a little bit of air from the top of the valve. The second element of this system is a Therm-a-Rest Fitted Sheet. You can see that it is custom fit for this size of the BaseCamp pad, which is a large size of the BaseCamp pad at 25inches wide by 77 inches in length, so it is a nice broad sleeping base. I will flip this over here and you will see that it fits nicely at all the corners and allows the valve to pass through on the far end of the pad, and in the center it really cinches things into place so that the sheet stays right where it needs to all night long. The final piece of the BaseCamp sleep system in the Ventra Down Comforter. I have got it face down here below us so we can secure it directly to the Fitted Sheet. The Fitted sheet has snaps built right into it that connect perfectly with the snaps that are on the Ventra Down Comforter. You will see that I am making certain that the comforter wraps around the foot of the pad and that the interior baffling of that Ventra Down Comforter remains on the front side of the pad. That is going to make that comforter as warm and as comfortable as it can be for your night of sleep. The Ventra Down Comforter is filled with 650 fill power down. It has a nice loft to it and it is very comfortable. The interior lining feels very nice and combined with that fitted sheet, that entire system has a very nice next to skin feel.
