A good sleeping pad is important for your sleep


Wide selection of self-inflating and lightweight pads
A good sleeping pad is half the experience when sleeping outdoors.

The function of a good sleeping pad

A good pad should ensure that you lie soft and don't get back pain when using it as an open-air sleeping pad, in your tent, or on another outdoor trip. But another important feature is that it can keep you warm. It takes not only a good sleeping bag, but also an insulating pad that can keep the cold in the ground. If you need extra insulation, you can buy a pad with aluminum foil. If you want to pack ultra-light, a lightweight pad with aluminum can actually be used alone. The best sleeping pad is often suitable for several different types of trips.

If you want extra luxury on your trip, you can choose to bring an inflatable pillow. It doesn't get any better, it's almost as comfortable as at home. The pillow doesn't take up much space, so it's really worth considering using a little space in your bag.

If you want cheap sleeping pads, they can also be found - feel free to ask our experts for advice on the best pads at a low price.

What is R-value?

The insulation value of a sleeping pad is measured in R-value. A pad with an R-value of 2.3 should be able to keep you warm if the temperature in the ground is 0.0 degrees. If the temperature in the ground is warmer, you can use a pad with a lower R-value, e.g. 1.0 if the ground is about 9 degrees. If it is colder than 0 degrees on the ground, you should have a higher R-value to keep warm. For example, the R-value should be at least 4.0 to keep you warm if the ground is -11 degrees cold. To simplify, buy a pad with a high R-value if you plan to spend the night in cold terrain.

The latest models

Sleeping pads are being developed a lot these years, where many may remember lying on one of the thin foam pads. Today there are pads that do not weigh much, but can inflate themselves and have a high R-value. With a small valve, it's easy to get all the air out again. Thus, the pad does not take up much space in the backpack for the rest of the trip. It has become much easier to sleep in nature with high comfort when you can buy a mattress made of the new materials.
There are inflatable pads and self-inflating pads - and the difference is straightforward. The inflatable pads are lighter and should be pumped up with a pump. The self-inflating pads have a foam core that expands when unfolded and thus draws air in. The foam core makes the pad bulkier and slightly heavier. On the other hand, it provides security that if the pad punctures, you still have the foam core to lie on. To be on the safe side when you're on a trip, it's always a good idea to have a repair kit. Patching can give the pad a bit longer lifespan in a tricky situation.

How does a self-inflating pad inflate itself?

It's actually quite simple and even better found by Therm-a-Rest, who were the first to use the principle of letting the pad inflate itself. There is a foam core, a relatively soft one, inside a self-inflating sleeping pad. This foam core is allowed to expand when you remove the tight elastic and take the pad out of the bag it's in.

When the foam core expands, it draws in air. Thus, you have a delicious mattress for the night. In most cases, it can make the night extra comfortable if you blow once or twice into the valve with your mouth or with a pump. It is rare that the pad can inflate itself completely.

Which sleeping pad should I choose/Which sleeping pad is best?

Choose a foam pad if it's as cheap as possible and you only need to use it a few times. It is a compact sleeping pad - but expect no comfort, material and comfort are related. On the other hand, it is lightweight. Choose a self-inflating pad if it's okay for it to weigh a little more and enjoy a good comfort - especially the thicker ones. Choose the inflatable pads if weight matters most. The modern sleeping pads also have good comfort, so you don't have to suffer from a bad night's sleep. Today, there are also good winter sleeping pads in foam - but it is the self-inflating pads with a foam core that are referred to here.

Sleeping pads come in many different thicknesses. It is very normal for them to have between 5cm and 10cm. The thickness is not directly related to the R-value, but often indicates how soft the pad is to lie on. However, a thick pad also comes with a disadvantage - it takes up more space.
If you want to buy a pad for a bad back, it is important that it is of good quality and has a certain thickness.
If you are unsure about which pad is best for you, we have conducted sleeping pad tests and posted them on our YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=andersenoutdoor.com

Due to the importance of the R-value, there is a difference in pads. Just like with sleeping bags, there are pads that are best suited for a selection of seasons. Another similarity with sleeping bags is that pads also come in different lengths. It is important to choose one that is long enough for your body.

If you are going hiking, camping in a shelter, going to a festival or on a camping trip, and you are unsure about choosing a sleeping pad, feel free to contact us for good advice and recommendations.

Self-inflating sleeping pads have been among the most popular mattresses for outdoor enthusiasts for many years. Today, more and more are being sold that are simply inflatable - with a good pump. At andersenoutdoor.com, we have a very large selection of both and, of course, also the old foam models. We sell brands such as JR GEAR, Sea To Summit, Grand Canyon, and Therm-a-Rest. But which one should you choose, and what does something like the R-value
