Today I’m reviewing the Therm-A-Rest Prolite Sleeping Pad from Cascade Designs. This is the extra small model and its good from the hips to your head. Its 36″ by about 20″ and 1″ thick. For those weight weenies out there that think you don’t need a full sized pad to stay comfortable this would be the one for you. I however prefer a full sized pad…Just my preference

This pad is a self inflating pad made from Die-Cut foam and also has a tapered shape to help cut those pesky ounces. This pad (the extra small) weighs in at 8oz. prolite small
It has an “R’ value of 2.2. The top fabric is a 50D Poly and the bottom fabric is 70D which makes this pad very durable.

Here are some specs from the website:
