The Lite-Core 1.5 is REI's best all-around inflatable sleeping pad. It has attractive styling, reasonable features, and is comfortable and warm. Although the Lite-Core is a reasonable value for an entry-level pad, we recommend spending a few extra dollars for the Therm-a-Rest ProLite, our highest rated inflatable foam pad.
If you want to branch out from air/foam construction — and therefore get a warmer, more comfortable and lighter pad — consider a Therm-a-Rest NeoAir. At 12 ounces, the Therm-a-Rest NeoAir XLite is the best ultralight pad available and the Therm-a-Rest NeoAir Xtherm, just three ounces more, is the ultimate, do-it-all sleeping pad for multi-day trips in all conditions.
