A good nights sleep is an essential ingredient in any good expedition, but how do you get one without hoofing a gigantic heavyweight super plush sleep mat around with you - Therma-rest have the answer with the Prolite Plus range.
Therma-rest have been making 'self-inflating' sleep mats forever and although there are numerous imitators in the market, if its rugged durability you're after the original is best.
The Plus in the Prolite Plus refers to the added thickness and insulation give upto 20% more warmth than the regular prolite, plus comfort on rough ground from the nearly 4cm thick pad.
At Adventure-Spec we like to cut down on added extras, so the 3/4 length mat is our choice. The mat packs considerably smaller and we dont find having feet hanging over the end compromises comfort at all. Give it a go! If you want that extra length see the regular length below
Heres the official word from Thermarest...
