Yes! – It’s that time of year again! Sick and tired of hearing about the latest death-and-destruction video games or “hot” smart-phones?

Sleeping Pads: All Scouts should have some type of sleeping pad to put under their sleeping bag – it acts both as insulation and cushioning. Although people use a wide variety of items for this purpose, there are basically two types that are specifically intended as sleeping pads – foam pads and Therm-a-rest pads. Foam pads consist of closed cell, semi-hard foam which is non-absorbent, and usually corrugated. They come in both roll-up and Z-fold styles – both work equally well. “Thicker is better.” They also come in various lengths; a 3/4 length is sufficient for a small Scout using a 3/4 length sleeping bag – most other Scouts and adults should get a full-size (six foot) version. If needed, longer versions are also available for purchase on-line or via special order from a camping outlet like Casual Adventure. Foam pads are “relatively” inexpensive. Therm-a-rest pads are semi-self-inflating air mattresses that contain an expandable foam. [Therm-a-rest is the original such pad; there are now numerous generic versions of the same type pad; the term “Therm-a-rest” is used in this discussion for all such pads.] These are NOT your classic air mattress (beach air mattress/raft), and no Scout should use the latter such mattresses, which are heavy, difficult and slow to inflate, noisy to sleep on, uninsulated, and easily punctured. Therm-a-rest are typically 3/4 – 1 1/2 inch thick, have a tough, non-skid surface, and like foam pads come in various lengths from to feet. [There are also ultra-light versions for backpacking, but these are quite expensive and are not further addressed in this writeup.] When new, Therm-a-rests will about two-thirds inflate when laid out with their valve open; however, this ability degrades if they are stored rolled up, because the foam gets permanently compressed (for this reason, they are supposed to be stored inflated – but very few people actually do so). Once self-inflated, they are further filled by mouth. Therm-a-rests are significantly more comfortable than foam pads, because they do a much better job of cushioning and evening out ground imperfections. However, they weigh more than foam pads (in some cases, significantly more) and are expensive (over $100 for the largest and thickest non-backpacking models.) The generics are less expensive, but most are also lower quality. For what it’s worth, I own a variety of foam pads and Therm-a-rests – for most campouts I use a Therm-a-rest, but for cold weather camping I will place a thick foam pad on top of the Therm-a-rest for additional insulation. Any foam pad or (especially) Therm-a-rest should have the Scout’s name marked on it prominently ON THE END THAT WILL BE VISIBLE WHEN PACKED. Don’t rely on marking the sleeve or bag that the pad came in, as these are invariably lost within a few campouts. Finally, please avoid the inflatable twin bed-size air-mattresses; they weigh a ton, take forever to inflate, and take up way too much space.
