    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.
