Any suggestion on a good sleeping pad that help getting your body good rest during multi-day practice or race? Even if I sometimes get to sleep in a cot, I need a pad as another layer to treat my back (especially) well.

I was recommended OutdoorsmanLab Ultralight Sleeping Pad https://professionalcamping.com/outdoorsmanlab-ultralight-sleeping-pad-test-trek/ which seems to be super light and easy to use, perfect for my solo practice.

I also found even lighter one, Exped Synmat UL LITE M, but the score from review site wasn't that good https://www.outdoorgearlab.com/reviews/camping-and-hiking/sleeping-pad/exped-synmat-7.

Anyone use these and could share user experience?

Any further recommendations are most welcomed!

Do you need light or comfort ? It seems they'll be at opposites....

If you're not carrying the mat then go for the comfort ?

I use an exped down mat when I go camping and wouldn't swap it for anything else. It's comfortable, warm and I sleep as well on as I do at home.

If weight is no option i'd go for the wide version for a little more wiggle room. I also use their pillow.

I just use any random airbed (have a 6 one from Tesco currently), although it's pretty heavy if you're you're going to be lugging it around too much
