    Sleeping pads

    I need to upgrade!Any recommendation would be great but it can't be an air filled mattress that was my last one and it popped on me in the backcountry.
    Can you handle the challenge.... hunt hard but safe!!

    therma rest z-lite probably the best and one of the lightest foam pads. Folds up like an accordian.

    Mtnhuntress I really think you should look into the Big Agnes Insulated Air Core. i understand your thoughts about the air cell pads, but this thing is amazing and I've beat the tar out of it and not mention it's light and extremely comfortable.

    I just got a Nemo Astro Air Insulated last night. I have only had a chance to lay on it inside but it is fairly light 1lb. 8 oz. and very comfortable. It is basically a more durable and quieter Neo Air from everything I have gathered so far. I don't have a lot of experience with it yet but you may want to check it out, so far I'm impressed.

    I have both a Neo Air and Big Agnes inuslated air core. The neo air is sweet and super light but it definitely is a thinner material and I am super careful not to put it on top of anything sharp. The Air Core I've had for 5 years and have beat that thing to hell and it's still holding up great.

    Really like my Neo-Air due to the weight, but always watch wear I place it so I don't get any punctures. I did sleep out on some rocks one night when I was hunting dall sheep in Alaska and never got any holes in it.
