A Sleeping Pad Is All You Need
For A Warm Night's Sleep

A sleeping pad and a comfortable night's rest go hand in hand.

They have 2 main functions, one is to insulate you from the ground, the other is to provide a cushion for comfort.

They come in different thicknesses for your sleeping comfort. The night air is damp and sometimes cold.

With a shield between you and the ground, you can hold in some warmth from your own body.

With comfort, style, colors, comfort rating and convenience you can't beat a good night's sleep.

If you do some winter camping, you know what comfort a nice warm pad gives.

The insulation and cushion properties of the pads vary, so choose one according to your needs.

Some have a cover made of fleece, cotton, wool, jersey and even sateen. Some are inflatable. Some have a layer of synthetic fill between the layers.

Even with the winter air a cold -50F, you can find the perfect one to meet your needs.

You can get an extra long pad for those tall campers (like my husband).

Kids love sleeping on them in their tents.

All my grandchildren have one, each with a different color. You can get children's pads in a variety of styles and colors.

Sleeping Bags On Top of the Pads
