Nemo Switchback Foam Sleeping Pad
About this deal
Closed-cell foam pads are generally considered ultralight, and the Switchback and Z Lite are no exception. Put fjällräven ground mat under it or thermarest ridge rest on top of it and you will be close to 5. The Therm-a-Rest NeoAir Xtherm takes the lightweight insulation of the NeoAir Xlite and ratchets it up a notch.
NEMO Switchback Review | Tested by GearLab
I destroy even pretty long lasting civil stuff in a relatively short time, because I use it every day without intermission.
The above backpacking sleeping pads are the ones we’ve tried that we recommend, but they are far from the only sleeping pads that we have tried over the years, or as part of our testing for Outdoor Life.
Nemo Switchback Regular Sleeping Mat | UK | Ultralight
This is a crazy good value sleeping pad and although it isn’t as comfortable as traditional inflatable sleeping pads, it’s my top pick for non-inflatable sleeping pads, it will keep you warm even if you are sleeping on snow.If you’re a slide sleeper that wants to give closed-cell foam sleeping pads a chance, this is the best backpacking sleeping pad for you. I spend several months every year camping out in the woods or mountains, most recently in Pakistan, and I’ve used quite a few different sleeping pads over the years.
