|Description||They can be rolled and placed either inside the pack or on top (where it can be held under the closure for instance). The 1/8" pad will fold up to fit into the back of Gossamer Gear packs and the 3/8" thickness, cut down to 30 or 40 inches, can be folded into the back of select backpacks as well, providing a super-minimalist pad.
This makes them a favorite for ultralight backpacking and camping! Our thinnest pad at 1/8" weighs much less than even a deck of cards. While even our thickest sleeping pad is less than half the weight of most foam sleeping pads. These add almost no weight to your pack, are compact, and can be folded and bended into any form without losing their integrity. If you own an air mattress then it should be an indispensable part of your kit - an air mattress alone might slip and slide and leave you freezing from convective heat loss. Place a thinlight foam insulation pad on top of or underneath your air mattress to prevent sliding and provide insulation. Also makes a quick and easy campseat.
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 our packs 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
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)
