Z-Lite Therm-A-Rest Pad — Nap in a briefcase


    From websites:

    The most compact closed-cell foam pad Cascade Designs makes, the Z-Lite is ideal for economically-minded fast-and-light backpackers.


    • Egg-crate pattern increases pad softness and adds heat by trapping warm air under sleeping bag

    • Accordian-style design lies flat instantly and folds up into a small package

    • Incredibly lightweight at only 11 ounces (Short); 15 ounces Regular

    • Durable, closed-cell foam withstands years of abuse


    • Dimensions: 20 x 47 x 0.75 inches (Short); 20 x 72 x 0.75 inches (Regular)

    • Stuff size: 20 x 3.8 x 5 inches (Short); 20 x 5 x 5.5 inches (Regular)

    • R value: 2.2


Keep it in the bottom of your bag — you just never know when a nap will try and break out.

The Short is $27.25 and the Regular $31.80, both here.

In animal lovers' terms, the short one is good for about eight cats and the long one oughta hold about twelve cats. Dogs, well, hard to say. They tend to not stay put as much. Or maybe I just haven't been around enough dogs (four-legged variety) lately.
