The Therm-a-Rest Ridgerest and Z-Lite are iconic mattresses seen on backpackers, climbers, and thru-Hikers around the world. Closed cell mattresses are lightweight and durable, making them ideal for rugged activities.
The Therm-a-Rest RidgeRest Classic is a lightweight closed-cell foam sleeping pad. Molded ridges increase comfort and subsequent indentations trap the heat of your body to achieve an R-value of 2.6. The lightweight construction makes the RidgeRest Classic suitable for climbing, mountaineering and 3-season backpacking and the durable construction makes it ideal for desert camping where prickly plants can puncture inflatable mattresses. The RidgeRest Classic is also a great option for use beneath another pad (sold separately) to provide additional warmth in cold or snow.
