Do you occasionally like to sleep outside, in a tent or under the stars? If you do, and if you find yourself either cold or uncomfortable with your current sleeping setup, this guide is for you. Are you contemplating a first-ever backpacking trip, or wondering what type of sleeping pad to buy for a kid looking forward to a first camping trip? If so, this guide is for you, as well.
We’ve seen people sleep on all sorts of things when camping, including cotton futons, foot-high AeroBeds, foam pads, yoga and pilates mats, canvas cots, pool floats, life jackets, and folded blankets. If you have any of those items around your house, find them comfortable and warm enough, and have room to stuff them in your car, any of them could become your camping bed.
But if you’re looking to buy a sleeping surface specifically for camping, dozens of hours of research and testing have led us to the conclusion that your best bet is a camping-specific pad that rises just a couple of inches off the ground. Counterintuitively, these types of pads are often more comfortable, usually warmer, and most likely more durable than full-size air mattresses. They’re far more compact and easy to transport than a futon or cot, and they’re more cushy and comfortable than most exercise mats.
Do you need a sleeping pad at all? Some people can sleep soundly on the hard ground, but they are the rare (odd) birds. Most people clearly prefer sleeping on a comfortable, forgiving surface. Keep in mind, too, that your sleeping system is about more than just cushiness. Without the insulation of a sleeping pad, your body tries to create temperature equilibrium with the earth. This is known as conductive heat loss—and you’re the one who loses.

The type of pad you want depends on where you’re headed, so we’ve divided our picks into three categories. The best pad for backpacking is for anyone who intends to carry all their gear on their back for miles and is best served by a compact, lightweight pad. The best pad for car camping is for people who won’t be lugging their pad far and so are more concerned with comfort than with heft and weight. And our budget pick will work for people who are just getting into camping or backpacking and want a solid choice before investing in a higher-quality pad.
