      On our most recent Snow Course, one of our students used a down air mattress made by Warmlite:
      http://warmlite.com/down-air-mattress-alone. Considering the ambient temps were down to 12-degrees, when it wasn't snowing, he was warm and insulated from the ground. The rest of us used doubled-up summer pads and some were still cold.
      I don't know if this product is the next new mousetrap out on the market, but it worked for him for winter camping!

      “Indecisive” is my middle (if not first) name.  So – I have a Neoair, a Thermarest Prolite 3 and a Thermarest Prolite 4.  I’m reading up on a POE Ether Thermo 6.  Does anyone have any yeahs or nays on these?  Please don’t add any others to the mix (I know some of you like Montbell, but they don’t work for me).

      I have a Phantom 15 degree down bag.

      I’m a side sleeper and I  sleep cold.

      I know I can sleep on a Neoair and a Prolite 4 comfortably.  The Prolite 3 is not warm/comfortable enough for me.  Will the Neo or Prolite 4 be warm enough if it gets below freezing?  Or might the POE Therno Ether 6 be better?

      Thanks, Barbara
