I liked the old Therm-A-Rest LE's better
on December 19, 2012
This product is advertised as an improvement on the Therm-A-Rest LE's. We tried it out over a carpet in our living room and returned it. It simply didn't provide the same cushioning and support as the older pads, so we'll continue to use the LE we still have. The somewhat good news is that we sent the other LE which wouldn't stay inflated back for repairs. I'm guessing it was about ten years old. Apparently Cascade Designs couldn't repair it, so they replaced it with a Luxury Map. At a glance, the Luxury Map might be either slightly better or almost as good as the LE, but it's at least comparable...and who could believe that a company would, under warranty, replace a 10 year old product with a top of the line new one? I can't help but love Cascade Designs, but if you liked the LE's, I'd suggest trying the Luxury Map rather than the Basecamp.
