Reply To: Newbie question = what type of sleeping pad?

my 3/4 and full length therm-a-rest pads take about the same space rolled up. the 3/4 inflates to a thicker pad. That’s what I would use for self-contained. Been using a inflatable mattress last few years on RAGBRAI where space isn’t an issue. Used it on below freezing rides too, I though the extra elevation off the ground help transfer less of the cold up from the soil. of course I put a blanket on top of it, then 3 season sleeping bag on top of that. Then if I had to, fold the blanket over on top of the bag
