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
- So far, so good
Likes: Light, reasonably priced. I've seen many others on the trail with this strapped to their packs and thought it looked bulky. It can also be used as a seat.
Dislikes: None so far. I've used it just once.
- Must have in every gear closet!
Likes: This pad.really does keep a tush warm in less than ideal temps, as well as providing just enough cushion. Durable, and lightweight, no noise pad. I hammock camp primarily, this is a great option to have if i need to go to the ground, but also still gets used as a sit pad, a packing surface, keeps me and gear cleaner. The dog also appreciates it.
Dislikes: Bulky, but better than dealing with less durable inflatable pads that can and will develop a hole.
- Does what it's supposed to
Likes: Great added insulation
Will never fail
Great to use as a sit pad for you and friends as well
Dislikes: Bulkier than air pads, but the way this folds makes it more packable than a roll up foam pad.
- Just what I was looking for
Likes: I have tried several sleeping pads before and found I liked the shorter pad as I could put my feet on my backpack. After searching several reviews, I purchased the Z-Lite Sol. It is exactly what I have been looking for. I like the padding thickness and it is just the right length for me (I'm 5'10"). Plus, it is light. Overall, a great product.
Dislikes: None, at this time.
- large and comfortable
Likes: Large enough for my air mattress but would do well by itself in all but cold weather. Even though it folds up into a square shape it's only a bit larger than my roll up pad. Can fold into an insulated camp seat too.
Likes: Decently warm. Also great as a very thick butt pad.
Dislikes: - Too thin: can feel rocks on the ground.
- Annoying to strap to a backpack.
- Lightweight and comfortable
Likes: Pad is very light, gives good insulation, and protects an airpad from the ground if using one. Can be used on its own and is still pretty comfortable.
Dislikes: A little bulky when folded up, but still manageable.
- 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.
