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.

- 5 Stars for Use with Air Beam MattressReview by BeeKeeper
Price Value Quality
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)
