The Thermarest Trail Pro is the warmest self inflating mattress in the Trek and Travel series. It is a great 3 - 4 season mat providing comfort and warmth, though it it is also the bulkiest when packed. It is a good choice for trips where weight and bulk are not so much of an issue but where essential insulation from a cold ground could be.
The Trail Pro has a longer straight section in the torso area, this increases the width and reduces the gap when two mats are coupled together. Complete with it's own stuff sack the trail pro can be compressed to fit into your pack between camps. Easily inflated by opening the valve the mattress will self inflate in a few minutes, but you'll always have to give it a couple of breaths to finish it off.

This mat packs to a small size and is light enough to use for backpacking. The width is narrow and is best suited to sleeping on your back, front sleepers may be better on the larger size mat. as with all thermarest stuff it is well made and should last a long time. I found this mat plenty warm enough and the warmth stops moisture condensing underneath your self. A good night sleep is the most important thing and any extra weight can always be removed from other pieces of kit. I mainly cycle tour and try to go ultralite, but always allow extra confront in the sleeping department.
Great product. Purchased the Large version as I am 185cm tall and was surprised how compact it was when packed into its stuff sack. Self inflates quite quickly but does need a few extra puffs to really fill it out. The 5cm thickness is worth every penny as it gives good insulation and cushions my 100kg body very well! Have used Thermarest mats before and have been pleased with the build quality. The weight is very respectable given the size making it a really good all-rounder.
I bought this sleeping mat as an alternative to the inflatable mattress I've always used for camping. I can't believe I've never thought about getting one of these before, so much easier! I feel inflatable mattresses are somewhat of a false economy as I tend to have to buy new ones frequently due to slow punctures which mean you find yourself contacting the ground in the morning whilst the mattress is deflated and sagging in the middle... Also a pain to have to keep pumping up. I tried a few out in camping shops before choosing this one, my original choice being the smaller thermarest proLite plus model. However I found the trail pro provided a lot more comfort for very little increase in size and as I'm not planning on trekking huge distances with it a small amount of extra weight isn't an issue for me. The mat does really require a few extra breaths to make it inflate fully, but I was genuinely surprised that something so flat-looking can make such a difference. I've used it camping on relatively hard bumpy ground and had a great night's sleep. It isn't too much of a chore to deflate either and I got it back into the provided carry sack easily. I can't vouch for the mat's longevity, having purchased it fairly decently however I'm glad I invested in this brand rather than a cheaper substitute as it feels well made and there is also the thermalite guarantee.
After much consideration, I bought this mat for my more luxury camping trips.
The material used is pretty nice to the touch, although I've found it a little slippery if your camp site isn't totally flat.
It certainly isn't an ultralight mat, but it's not meant to be. You lose three times more warmth through the floor than you do through the air above you, so a sleeping mat can be crucial for comfort. The Trail Pro is very warm, and I've used it throughout the year without ever feeling the cold.
If you're looking for similar warmth in a lighter mat, it might be worth looking at the new models of Thermarest All Seasons/Xtherm or the Exped Downmat UL 7.
