Made of Evazote® foam, these pads are made with a unique high pressure nitrogen gas solution process. High quality extrusions and cross-linking of solid polymeric sheets are impregnated with pure nitrogen gas at elevated temperature and extremely high pressure. Then the impregnated solid sheets are expanded in a huge low pressure autoclave. This process results in an extremely regular and uniform cell structure in the foam.  What this means to you is the foam is amazingly light and strong for its density. The pads are tough, flexible and resilient, and exhibit good UV stability. As a closed-cell foam, they will not absorb water.

The 1/8" pad will fold up to fit into the back of a Gossamer Gear® G4™, Kumo™, Mariposa™ or Gorilla™ pack, or either thickness can be rolled, either inside the pack, or on top (where it can be held in place by the Mariposa™ "Y" strap, for instance). The 3/8" thickness, cut down to 30 or 40 inches, can be folded into the back of a Gossamer Gear® G4™, Kumo™, Mariposa™  or Gorilla™ as well, providing a super-minimalist pad.

For hammock users and doubles we now have 1/4" thick ThinLight™ pads at a 39" width. These pads are made from the same Evazote® foam as the original ThinLights and provide plenty of coverage for the cold spots. This pad will not fit in the pad holder pocket of an GG pack and will need to be strapped on the outside of a pack.  The 1/4 Wide and the 3/8 pads are not available internationally and ship Ground Delivery only in the US.   If you have a PO BOX, you will need to choose the Priority Mail Option.

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)
