The Thermarest Trail Pro is the most comfortable self inflating mat in Thermarest's Trek range of mats. The internal foam uses their StrataCore construction for warmth. This is a single continuous layer of thermal foam sandwiched between layers of alternating ridges of foam and air to reduce the bulk of the mat, and gives the mat an R-Value of 4.4 making it suitable for 3 season use. The Stretch knit top of the mat provides a comfortable sleeping surface in warmer conditions when you may be using your sleeping bag as a sheet.
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. The WingLock valve system has a large opening for rapid one way inflation so no air is lost. The WingLock valve also features deflation 'wings' so the mat can be deflated and rolled up easily.

Customer Reviews of Thermarest Trail Pro
I got the wide normal length, it's transformed my camping. I lay in the sleeping bag in the morning thinking "I am so comfortable it's amazing". Great bit of kit but possibly a bit bulky for ultra lightweight expeds but I'd probably put up with the extra bulk for the comfort.
Good thick cushioning. Robust material. I think it will be durable. Con - doesn't pack down small.
Very pleased - a nice balance between light weight and comfort, though I was travelling by car so maybe a hiker would go for a lighter model.Much more comfortable and less bulky than my old carrymat.It's worth playing with the pressure to get best performance.Plenty long enough for me (5 foot 9) and not slippery.I found it quite easy to roll up into the sack if you follow the instructions. The only downside is that it's best to store it unrolled so you have to find somewhere to do that (under a bed for example). Quick delivery and well packed.
This mat packs to a small size and is light enough to use for backpacking. The width is narrow and is best suited to sleepingon 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.
