The Winners are:

Editors' Choice - Therm-a-Rest Z Lite Sol Mattress

The Z Lite Sol is a classic design and has been around for years and perfected the Therm-a-Rest to be comfortable while being lightweight. The "egg-crate" foam construction of the pad folds up into a compact package that clips on the bottom of a backpack. The tried and tested Z Lite wins the Outside Pursuits "Editors' Choice" award.

Top Pick - Therm-a-Rest ProLite Mattress

The ProLight sleeping pad is another excellent offering from Therm-a-Rest and has a very different design. The ProLite is a "self-inflating" backpacking sleeping pad. This type of pad inflates itself by simply unfolding it. It features a very lightweight and packable design and wins the "Top Pick" award.
