    I've been using a friend's old therma-rest inflatable sleeping pad on camping trips for the last two years. I finally decided that I needed my own sleeping pad, instead of borrowing one all the time. My only criteria was that it was relatively affordable.

    I found the Wenzel Convoluted Camp Pad randomly on Amazon, and for the money it seemed like a product comparable to a lower end offering you might find at a REI / Blue Ridge Mountain Sports / Dicks, etc. On the same note, I feel like this portion of the camping market (sleeping pads) is saturated with overpriced gimmicks. This product was clearly not one of those.

    The pad comes rolled up with two elastic bands on the outer ends. I was overwhelmed with how light it was. It was about as heavy as a small cardboard box. In a stiff wind, it might roll or tumble away! While light, it is a little large, so if you don't have loops big enough on your backpack, I'd just clip some lines around the elastic bands that keep the pad rolled up.

    Moving on to the most important part, sleeping comfort. While it wasn't quite a plush hotel experience, I did notice that many fine details of the terrain were instantly smoothed. The texture was likened to thick wet suit or a thick/firm yoga mat. Small rocks and stones disappeared under my back, while still remaining comfortable. The pad absorbed small obstacles, but conformed to the curvature of the earth; try and find the flattest land possible. Additionally, this might not be the ideal choice to put in a hammock, (I used mine in a tent and hammock) because the curve can cause slight buckling at the edges. Regardless, for the price you cant complain much.

    Overall this a total recommended purchase. Considering products like the Therma-rest NeoAir?

    This is a pad for one thing. Heat retention. NOT padding like a mattress. Get an air mattress and you will get what you are looking for in terms of "squish." This is a thermal insulator, period.

    Having grown up camping once a month with Boy Scouts, and in all sorts of weather you learn certain things. Air mattresses are the best at giving you a "bed" to sleep on, not cots. When the weather is cold though the air will literally suck the body heat from you, thus you need a sleep pad like this to insulate you.

    I used the military version for my 10 years in the Marines and thought that was fantastic, this is even better.

    When you sleep in a sleeping bag, no matter how great it is, how low the temperature rating is, the thermal insulation properties are almost completely negated underneath you because you have flattened out the fill. This completely reverses that.

    This is a couple of dollars more expensive than the military surplus version but for cold weather camping, there is nothing better.

    If you sleep on a cot, this is even more important as the air circulates freely underneath you.

    Just like we all know we are supposed to dress in layers when it is cold to achieve the best insulation, you need to do the same with sleeping bags, pad, air mattress (or cot).

    Again, to be completely clear, this is not a mattress or a pad in the sense that softens the ground where you sleep. Think of this like the mattress pad on your bed at home. You would be sorely disappointed if you got rid of the 8 inch Serta and slept on the mattress pad alone right? This is the same concept.

    It's affordable and lightweight. Not too wide so fits my 75L pack well. Decent R value for the 20+ degree night I used it on.

    And this is only a con for an older side sleeper like me. If you are a side sleeper, look into a thicker self inflating or air pad. My hip bone was sore for 2 weeks after sleeping only one night on this pad.

    Bottom Line:
    Took my 9 year old son on his first camping trip and he had no issues with comfort on this pad, so it's a good product for minimal expense if you are a back sleeper. Side sleepers should look elsewhere in my opinion.

    I purchased the Wenzel convoluted camping pad about a year ago, and have used it many times since. I own three foam camping pads, as well as an inflatable Air Core pad from Big Agnes. By comparison, this pad is the most comfortable foam pad that I own. To be fair, the other pads I own are 3/8" while this is 1/2". In contrast to my other foam pads however, this one is by far the stiffest, meaning I feel less of the ground beneath me. I prefer this stiffer pad when I'm sleeping outdoors on the ground, because sharp pointy rocks become just annoying little bumps that I can deal with. With a more compliant pad, the rocks will be felt as sharper points such as with my Ridgerest and Alps Mountaineering pads, both 3/8" thick. In comparison to the Big Agnes inflatable pad, this is not quite as comfortable (1/2" vs. 2.5" thickness), although staying on top of foam pads is much easier. With inflatables if you move around in your sleep, you will likely need to glue rubber strips or velcro as I did, to hold your sleeping bag in place. Otherwise in the middle of the night you could wake up sleeping next to your pad. Another consideration is the weight. I haven't weighed it on an accurate scale yet, but on a bathroom scale it weighs about a pound. It feel around the same weight as my Big Agnes mummy cut Air Core pad (18 oz.).

    Another very important issue with sleeping pads is how well they insulate you from the cold ground. Insulation is rarely an issue in the summer months, even in Minnesota where I live. When fall and winter come rolling in with below freezing temperatures however, it's nice to have a sleeping pad that doesn't leave you shivering, even with a 20 degree sleeping bag!
