The Thermarest Trail Scout is often billed as the ideal mat for those wanting to upgrade to a self inflating mat or those on a tighter budget. However when compared with other mats in the Trek collection it does have a place to compete with other mats. It is after all a lighter mat that will pack down smaller and still offer an R-Value of 3.4. 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.
The Trail Scout has been made with less expensive fabrics, noticeable in the outer fabric which though still durable will be less durable than the TrailLite or Trail Pro. One of the great advantages of this mat is that it packs down nice and small and is an ideal 3-season mattress for backpacking.
