We sought out a variety of camping mattresses made to fit different needs — from lightweight, backpacking-friendly pads to cushioned models better suited to car camping.
In all cases, we aimed for picks that scored high marks on functionality and durability. Convenience factors — a lighter weight, easy folding, fast inflation and deflation — were also big priorities. Mattresses designed for winter use also needed an R-value greater than 5 — an indication that they contained enough insulation to keep you warm.
Lastly, all of the mattress pads on our list specified that they were made for two people. But since camping mattresses don’t offer much in the way of standardized sizing, some models were definitely roomier than others.
Checking the measurements before you buy is the best way to determine whether a pad will be big enough for you and your partner as well as fit in your tent, if needed.
