When a sleeping bag alone just won’t cut it, you can add warmth and comfort to your outdoor sleeping experience with a sleeping pad. Depending on your favorite sleeping position, the time of year, and your preferred way of packing gear, you will need to select a camping sleeping pad with appropriate features to suit your needs.
Whether you need insulation for a cold-weather camping trip or simply some cushioning for your summer sleeping bag, DICK’S sleeping pad assortment will help you achieve a sound night’s sleep. The three main types of sleeping pads are self-inflating, inflatable, and closed-cell foam. Inflatable pads require blowing into the valve either manually or with a pump, while self-inflating pads expand almost all the way on their own, requiring minimal additional inflation. Foam pads are thinner, denser, and require no set-up at all.
Top brands like Therm-a-Rest and Field & Stream provide a variety of options across these three categories in different shapes, sizes, and lengths to accommodate all campers.
