Hello I'm looking for help getting son and I insulated sleeping pads for 3rd season Colorado hunt. Best bang for the buck on a budget. We both have 0 degree Down bags. Used would be OK. Any ideas or help would be appreciated
Yep. For cold weather the Xtherm is fantastic. Especially for the weight.We recommend the Thermarest Neo Air Xtherm as the best weight vs warmth for late season hunts. You can often find them used for a decent price that would make it a good buy for what you get.
We do a raffle + review on Lightweight Sleeping Pads and the Xtherm is always one of the top choices of the winners.
CCF pad ? What is that ? Please forgive me I normally sleep on cot in my wall tent. This trip we'll be back packing in with TIPI hot tent first time for me. Thanks again for info. Trans YankIf you're in a bag (not a quilt) I'd take a long look at an insulated Klymit pad. You can get a factory second or refurbished model on eBay for around $60. I'd say the r-value for the use you described is a little light, but a cheap CCF pad to supplement the inflatable would do the trick. It's going to be a little heavy with two pads, and the CCF pad will be bulky, but you can either pay the price there or pay monetarily for an XTherm or Exped for an all-in-one solution.
Closed cell foam. Something like a Thermarest Z-Lite or Ridgerest, but I wouldn't limit it to one brand.CCF pad ? What is that ? Please forgive me I normally sleep on cot in my wall tent. This trip we'll be back packing in with TIPI hot tent first time for me. Thanks again for info. Trans Yank
