Statistically speaking, women sleep colder, and have a shorter average height than their male counterparts. The Thermarest® Womens ProLite™Plus mat is tailored for these differences.
Less foam has been cut from the torso and foot section of the womens mat, resulting in better insulation values, and with a shorter mat length, the Womens ProLite™Plus actually weighs less than the Regular ProLite™Plus.
Thermarest® Womens ProLite™ mats are made in the USA to high standards, using quality die cut polyurethane foam laminated with a soft touch 50D Polyester upper, and 50D Soft Grip Nylon base. These lightweight, compressible materials come together in a tapered shape producing a highly packable product for lightweight adventurers.
I got this mat recently and took it with me backpacking for three days and nights for the lighthouse to lighthouse walk in SE Oz. Super comfortable to sleep on and a perfect fit for me.
If you are going to backpack for longer, you may want to invest in mats that roll up even smaller and can be lighter. This one isn’t too bad, but I was in awe of my friends’ mats when I saw how small theirs packed down.
Totally recommend this mat :)
Yep - what you're trying to do is as simple as re-expanding the foam inside the mat which has been compressed in its packaging. If the foam isn't doing that itself it's likely because it's significantly compressed. On this occasion, get it going by blowing into the valve yourself and don't stress, you won't have enough pressure in your own breath to do any damage.
Hi, Just wondering I feel this had a temp rating as I want a mat for camping in about -4 temps. Thanks
I've just checked with Thermarest on their website and it looks like this Women's Prolite Plus Sleeping Mat with an R-Value of 4.2 will provide enough insulation down to around -7C. Naturally, these ratings are always variable depending on many factors like body warmth, quality of the sleeping bag, ground moisture etc, but it gives you a good guide to work from. If you'd like to have a look for yourself, you can view Thermarest's website here with the temperature chart on the right-hand side of the page.
Hi, I am researching Thermarest mats. I have heard there have been some significant changes between last season's prolite plus & the newer model. Can you explain the changes? Are there other mats which compare in both weight and warmth? If I was looking at hiking in spring and autumn, is it the most suitable choice? Thanks!
