Need a camp pad.

Here is what I need: A non-battery operated, self inflating camp pad that is at least 3" thick when filled, no less then 30" wide & at least 77" long.

Termarest has one for $200.00, way out of my price range. REI has one for $89.00, but it is only 25" wide.

Any suggestions?

MEC has better prices than REI, you may want to give them a try.

I sleep on the floor nightly. I have for almost 7 years now. For me, soft dirt is a luxury. I can't imagine why you would want such a silly thing.

I think any one of these 3 will work fine.

Bite the bullet. Comfort is important if you are going to spend more than one night out, or are going to use it more than a few times. I looked through the MEC site and they don't carry the largest of the thermarests.

No, I think I will go with the Ultimate Long Camp Pad from Cabelas, the middle one:

It exceeds what I need for what I think is a fair price.
