Great and versatile sleeping padReview by Heather "Badger"

I had the great fortune of doing part of the Rogue River Trail with Beekeeper and she is the one who shared how she uses her Thinlight pad and when I go to ground, I have started to use the Thinlight to protect my sleeping pad, and when I am hammocking, I use it for additional insulation underneath me.

I keep mine outside my pack and have not had trouble with it getting snagged on anything, but I could see if you do a lot of bushwacking, you would need to be careful. (Posted on 7/26/15)
Great for the DesertReview by Lucky

Learned this from my buddy Lyle: I use the 1/8th" pad to protect a short-size air mattress and to add extra insulation. I consider it a necessity in the deserts of the Southwest to minimize the risk of your air mattress getting a leak. There lots of stuff on the ground out here that can pop an air mattress. It also adds a surprising amount of insulation from the ground and improves the warmth of your overall sleep system.

I also like to sit on it around the campfire for warmth from the ground and to stay clean. (Posted on 7/23/15)
Great for many purposesReview by Lisa "Pinky" Curry

I have carried a Gossamer Gear 1/8" Thinlight Insulation pad for over five years. This super light foam pad has been great for many uses during the day and night. I have used it as my sit pad on every imaginable surface, for mid day napping pad under trees or on picnic tables, as a shared sit pad for groups of stinky hikers, for a lunch table, as cowboy camping protection underneath my inflatable sleeping pad, as added insulation in my hammock and to wrap around fragile items that I sometimes carry in my pack.

My first Thinlight pad traveled with me for the entire 2650 mile length of the Pacific Crest Trail. After three years I finally replaced it with a new one which I used for a thru hike of the 850 mile Hayduke Trail. I carry the pad on the outside of my pack so I have had to make many duct tape repairs from tears caused by some serious bushwhacks through cactus and thorn bushes. If I were to carry inside of my pack it would probably still be in great condition.

It is a durable closed cell foam which is super flexible, will not absorb water and is incredibly light weight. It is an inexpensive option for a lightweight minimalist pad that can be used for many purposes and an item that I will carry on all of my backpacking trips. (Posted on 7/8/15)

5 Stars for Use with Air Beam MattressReview by BeeKeeper

When I bought my Air Beam which has zero R Value, I also purchased the 1/8" Thin Light to use in conjunction.

I store it in the pack pouch of my Mariposa in place of the Sit Pad. I had to trim it just slightly to fit. It does make my back sweat more than the Sit Pad, but in my opinion worth the sacrifice.

I use the Thin Light under my Air Beam when temperatures indicate I don't want R value. The added benefit is that the Thin Light prevents any slippage when on a slanted surface.

I use the Thin Light on top of my Air Beam when it's cold out. I've used it down into low 20's and have been quite comfortable.

I also use it for sitting or lying during breaks during the day as it's easy to remove/replace in pack. (Posted on 2/11/15)
