Reply To: Therm-a-Rest Sleeping Pad Upgrade?

I used a Thermarest Basecamp the one year I tent camped. I found it quite comfortable just like Randall above says. Now I had tried sleeping on it on a very hard laminate floor at home one night previously so I was not surprised how comfortable it was during RAGBRAI but I was certainly surprised that night! I was unexpectedly tent camping with a charter that year when the rest of my team had to pull out of the ride for family reasons. As I a result I had to buy a tent and all other other tent camping essentials since all my former gear had died decades ago. Buying all new stuff on my budget meant that I tired to save money when I could and I bought the 2 inch Basecamp instead of the 3 inch model Thermarest. If I were doing it now I would go for the 3 inch just because it would be a little nicer but the 2 inch is perfectly fine really.
