    This is definitely one of the more brilliant set-ups I’ve seen for backwoods comfort. Been wanting one since you reviewed it awhile back as the “luxury item you can’t live without” (something like that, right?) Cool giveaway.

    My 6 years old has already outgrew her small, yellow Thermarest mattress so I’m looking for a one that would be light enough for her to carry (along with her water and down bag). I noticed your son carries a Z-lite pad – is this the one that your kids use or would you recommend a different one?

      Both of my kids (age 13 and 10) use a Z-Lite Sol small for now: It’s bulky, but lighter, and they’re both under 85 pounds still. They have no trouble sleeping on a foam pad, and they don’t have to worry about being careful with it (they throw it on the ground in camp, which could risk puncturing an air mat). When they’re ready to carry a little more weight and want an air mat, the Q-Core would be a good choice.
