Hey, this forum doesn't seem very active but I thought I'd try anyway. I'm climbing Kilimanjaro and doing other trekking in Africa in August, and I realized that I haven't bought a sleeping pad. As you can imagine, this is an expensive trip, and the thermarest pads (which were highly recommended to me) are kind of pricey (around 100 bucks). I'm trying to cut back on my expenses wherever possible at this point, so...

Do any of you have one that you want to sell? Or have a recommendation for a sleeping pad? I'm thinking the self-inflating kind is best, and the lighter the better. On the other hand, if you think I should spring for the thermarest, feel free to tell me that. If it's really going to make a big difference it could be worth the $.

Thanks!

Closed cell pads are cheaper, lighter and more versatile. Thermarest makes one, they call it Ridgerest.

It's hard to beat a Thermarest for comfort. I highly recommend one, especially if you have a tendency for back pain. I don't know where you are doing your shopping, but Campmor has them for $69. Unless you will be doing winter camping, you only need the 3/4 length, which is a little cheaper than the full length, as well as lighter.

If $69 is still too much, check out www.sierratradingpost.com. They are selling a few Thermarest type pads made by Alps Engineering for under $50, or go with the Ridge Rest that the previous poster mentioned.

Just ebay for it. Here is the link for Military Sleeping Pad. You can get a closed-cell and inflatable for less than $20. I recommend you to have both. Depending on the route you are on, other than forest zone for the first night, your other camp sites will almost always on rock ground. Just a closed-form pad isn't the most comfortable thing in the world.

Hiking Backpack 62 Liter for Backpackers and Globetrotters - $59

Location: Park Slope 4th Ave & 9th F/R trains - 15 min from East Village or Downtown Manhattan


Hi,

I'm moving to Europe and cannot take my beloved hiking backpack that I used for my backpacking trips around the globe.

It has 3 compartments - Main, bottom and top, padded shoulder and waistbelt - and has additional straps on the outside to affix sleeping back or a small tent. It has capacity for up to 62 liters or 3800 cu which is probably the largest to get. The pack itself is light so if you do not use the whole space you have at least some left to carry stuff you pick up on your travels :)

The pack has served me well - see below CL ad for pictures as well as below specs. Need to sell by Friday

I am on 4th Ave and 7th Street in Park Slope, Brooklyn, 2 minutes walk from F and R trains and 15 min from Downtown Manhattan
