Specifically designed for cost-conscious, ounce-counting backpackers, the Therm-a-Rest Z-Lite Sol is a super compact, closed-cell foam pad. Dual density foam provides a soft sleeping surface and a durable bottom while a heat-reflective coating directs heat back to your body for increased warmth.
A compact accordion-style design makes the Z-Lite Sol quick and easy to pack. The egg carton pattern enhances comfort and traps air underneath your sleeping bag, providing extra warmth. The thermal reflective barrier helps you retain heat while bouncing cold surface air back to the ground. This also makes the Z-Lite Sol a great option for pairing with another inflatable or self-inflating pad (sold separately) for maximum warmth and comfort in snow or cold weather.
The Therm-a-Rest Z-Lite Sol is available in Small (20" x 47" x 0.75") and Regular (20" x 72" x 0.75") size options.

Real Customer Reviews
- Best low maintenance pad
Likes: You don't have to blow it up, and there are no fears of it deflating.
Dislikes: Not a space saver.
- Very warm!
Likes: I had quite a simple sleeping pad before and i had problems with sleeping on it because i feel cold. I can't say i improved my comfortability so much with that sleeping pad, it's mostly the same, but i can definitely say it's much warmer and smaller that any pads i had.
Dislikes: Didn't find any dislikes.
- Simple yet great
Likes: Is what it says it is. Simple, lightweight sleeping pad that provides a solid R value. Won't deflate on you. Little bulky to carry but with the right pack its not a big deal.
- Works for a paranoid hiker
Likes: Every time I go hiking I worry about my air mattress getting a hole. I bought this as an added level of protection and warmth, sometimes a touch more weight isn't the worst thing
Dislikes: A bit bulky
- Not the best choice for me
Likes: I like the color and the warmth rating, but I bought two sleeping pads and decided this one was not the best choice for me.
Dislikes: I decided to keep the Klymit Static V Lightweight Sleeping Pad over this one, simply because it took up less storage space.
Likes: Nice item
- A decent little pad
Likes: It’s foldable and I find 1/2ing it better straps to the backpack. I really like the ridges from the egg crate like shape. And it’s nice and light.
Dislikes: It’s a little stiff but it pretty easy to get use to.
- great extra pad for warmth & blow up back up
Likes: warmth, durability, fold. Bomb proof super functional for multiple uses
Dislikes: as expected, a tad bulky
- Can't beat the price
Likes: Functions exactly how you would expect it to. Kept me warm when the overnight low was ~38 degrees. Would not expect it to keep me warm if it started to dip into freezing temps.
- Simple yet functional pad
Likes: This is a very simple, yet functional pad. It folds up very small, and I use it for all kinds of things. This ranges from being a knee pad when packing up in the morning, a sit pad, and extra insulation under my inflatable pad in the winter. I think it is a great value, and provides good warmth for the weight.
