Besides the comfort of a pillow to sleep, you would freeze at night, if you don’t have a between your sleeping bag and on the floor of the tent.
1 Decide how much you are willing to spend-sleeping pads can vary from less than $20 to more than $100 based on NEWVILLEOUTDOOR.
2 Determine which activity you will be using. For the bag, don’t underestimate the importance of compactness in volume and weight: will you curse yourself on track for every kilo extra and cubic inch you could have saved. When the car camping, weight and volume are less important; You can pay for something a little more bulky.
3 Note that you have several options when it comes to types of pillows on the market; air mattresses, closed and open-cell foam pads, self-inflating pads. Air mattresses are comfortable and cheap but heavy, bulky and poor insulators.Open-cell foam pads are comfortable and cheap too, but also bulky and get wet, forget it. Closed cells are cheap and less absorbent, but you need a real thick, if you want comfort. Self-inflating pads are great for sleep, can be wrapped in a very compact size, and provide excellent insulation. They are more expensive, however, and can be relatively heavy.
4 Consider whether you want a full-length or partial length pad: some say that the full body pillows are warmer and more comfortable, but of course they weigh more and occupy more space.
5 Think of thickness: is it worth toting along more weight for a hot pad thicker?
6 Drive to an outdoor art store that sells a wide variety of pillows and spend some time on the floor. Compare several different pads that best meet your specific needs.
An advantage of a foam pad is that it can be used in certain emergency medical situations: you can cut pieces from it to make splints, for example.
If you’re willing to splurge a bit, consider a cushion that can double as a comfortable camp Chair.
Air cushions require extra care, since they are susceptible to puncture. Self-inflating pads fix quite easily, however.
