If you want to have a high-quality sleep when hiking and camping, a comfortable camping sleeping pad is absolutely necessary. Today, I will share with you how to choose a camping sleeping pad? And recommend a few common sleeping pads for our camping and analysis of their advantages and disadvantages!
There are three types of sleeping pads
First of all, the sleeping pads for camping can be roughly divided into three types: foam sleeping pads, inflatable sleeping pads, and automatic inflatable sleeping pads.
foam sleeping pad
This sleeping pad is made of foam material. Its biggest advantage is that it is not afraid of being punctured. Even if it is damaged, it still has the ability to block cold. Foldable storage, lightweight material, very suitable for mountaineering. However, it is not suitable for use in winter or cold mountains, because the thickness is thin and cannot well isolate the cold and wet earth.
inflatable sleeping pad

Inflatable sleeping pads must be blown into the air by themselves, or pumped with a pump, and there is only air in the sleeping pad. The air layer can slow down heat conduction and isolate the body from contact with the cold ground, so it is more suitable for use in cold environments. The storage of the inflatable sleeping pad is also very simple, and the volume is small and easy to carry.
automatic inflatable sleeping pad
The self-inflating sleeping pad contains open-cell foam, which can automatically open the sleeping pad, so that the sleeping pad inhales air to generate thickness. There is usually an air inlet and outlet that opens and the mattress starts to inflate, and then locks the air outlet so that the air doesn't escape when the mattress is placed on it. When storing, open the air port, squeeze out the air while rolling up the sleeping pad, and finally lock the air port to prevent air from entering the sleeping pad again.
There are two types of automatic inflatable sleeping pads: thin and thick. Thin and lightweight, suitable for mountaineering, but less warm. The thick sleeping pad is large and heavy after storage, which is more suitable for general camping and family camping, and the comfort is much higher!
