Seeking for the Holy Grail of closed cell sleeping mats? Look no further, Therm-A-Rest Solar is the ticket. This is the biggest, comfiest and warmest mat of its kind, and also nigh indestructible.

Available only in Large size, Regular has been discontinued by the manufacturer.

The thing with RidgeRest is the ridge design, which not only reduces weight and packing space, it also creates air pockets between the sleeper and the mat, and air is of course the best insulation. Moreover, it's coated with ThermaCapture, which reflects heat back against the user. Can be used either side up.

Heavy duty model: works in freezing temperatures too.

Dimensions and weight

  • Measurements opened: 196 x 63 cm
  • Measurements packed: 64 x 24 cm
  • Thickness: 2 cm
  • Weight: 740 g
  • Material: polyethylene
  • R-value: 3,5 (four-season pad)

Closed cell or air mattress?

Either of these is not better than the other, just better for you and the intended purpose. Here are key points to consider when choosing between an inflatable and closed-cell sleeping mat.

Closed cell

  • Absolutely reliable and care-free
  • Lightweight
  • Takes more packing space
  • Cheaper price

Air mattress

  • Packs very small
  • More comfortable
  • The same or usually better insulation-to-weight ratio
  • Possibility of punctures

If you're aiming at carrying light, sleeping tight and consider yourself careful, the air mattress is probably a better choice for you. If you're looking for indestructibility and it's OK to carry the mat outside the ruck and the packing space isn't an issue, the closed cell model should work just fine. Besides, you can use the mat as a sledge and it won't get destroyed.

Made by Therm-A-Rest

Therm-A-Rest is a well-established name among outdoor gear manufacturers. For example, the company can take a humble kip mat and think it over, blowing new life to the simple design. What's best, they make their stuff in USA or Ireland.

Sopii erinomaisesti talviretkeilyyn, testattu on -28C. Suuren kokonsa vuoksi hankala rinkassa mutta ahkioon menee hyvin. Toisaalta suuri koko on talvella plussaa. Eikä ole puhkeamisriskiä.
