The reflective ThermaCapture™ coating and the egg carton dimples covering the Z Lite Sol™, is a combination meant to radiate heat contributing to the 20% warmth increase associated with this sleeping pad. We like the Therm-a-Rest® Z Lite Sol™ sleeping pad because it’s immediately available for comfort.

With an accordion style fold it’s incredibly convenient to carry and easily attaches to your backpack. No waiting for it to inflate and no extra bulk. The Z Lite Sol™ is versatile and convenient with an on demand use and is largely comfortable considering it’s only .75 in. thick. This is the mattress you want if price, weight, and convenience are your only sleeping pad specifications.

It’s compact, lightweight, easy to carry and ready to use while priced below most other sleeping pads in its class. The Therm-a-Rest® Z Lite Sol™ sleeping pad can be used with hammocks. If you are willing to cut a bit of comfort for the versatile, lightweight, easy to carry design this is the perfect sleeping pad for you. We wouldn’t recommend it for car camping instead use the Camp & Comfort™ options with Therm-a-Rest.
