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 of What is Available
Likes: Price (well, before BCE shipping), weight, can't pop because it's not an inflatable pad, warm.
Dislikes: Width, comfort, bulk.
- Absolutely comfortable
Likes: Lightweight, comfortable and manageable. Great!
- My friend recommended me try to this pad. I'm happy about it. I had Ridge Rest Solar, but this is also quite warm and comfortable.
Likes: compact, light weight - easy to carry.
Likes: just fit 3 season backpacking
Dislikes: the volume is greater than my guess
Likes: Great product!
-Durable, took anything I threw at it
Dislikes: Not as compressible as inflatable pads
Likes: Light weight, durable, and warmer then older versions. Doesn't pop or deflate because it's a durability foam. I highly recommend this product!
Dislikes: A little big and square when folded up.
Likes: It's like RidgeRest, but more compact.
Very light, can be used below 0C.
Likes: Perfect light weight sleep mat. Have used on overnight trips as well as multi day backpacking trips in the Eastern Sierras.
Dislikes: Nothing to dislike about this mat.
Likes: Great pad if you are looking for one that is light weight, puncture proof, and has great thermal properties.
It's a little bulky and thin compared to the highly compressible and thicker inflatable pads, but puncture and these pads are flatter than if you had the Therm-a-Rest Z-Lite.
Dislikes: Nothing really.
Likes: Easy to break down. The rollup ones are horrible to pack away. And the reflective size up makes it was as can be
Dislikes: A bit long I should have went with the small. I really only needed it to keep my core off the ground.
