Seat pads???

Seat pads???

Jordan wanted to go the closed-cell foam sleeping pad route. It seems that Therm-a-Rest is at the top of the heap in closed-cell foam and inflatable ultra-light sleeping pads for camping. Making it ideal for backpacking.

Once the decision is made I take to Amazon and Ebay for the deals. I did’t realize that they offered irregulars with cosmetic blemishes significantly lower in price.

At the time of this writing the prices have increased just a tad.

 

At the time I was looking at buying a seat pad for both he and I. The Therm-a-Rest Z seat was about $15 so doing the math I figured I could cut several out of a $25 (the price at that time) investment, and save some cash.

The Therm-a-Rest Z Seat is top dawg of seat pads.

 

Yes I’ve been involved in Scouting so long that it’s second nature to think that this is a way for a whole Patrol of boys to get seat pads for $25 only costing approximately $3.50 per boy. Of course the reality now is we have 2 seat pads and a 3/4 sleep pad.

Obtaining ultra-lightness (if the word exists) can be costly. But if you use a little thought and searching on the internet you can save money over time.

Get outdoors and take a kid along.
