    Default WTB sleeping pad/pillow, lightweight 2p tent

    Looking to replace my amazon (cheap and heavy) sleeping pad/pillow and 2 person tent with something better quality & not as heavy

    Sleeping pad/pillow is big and bulky at 2 pounds
    2p tent is at 6.3 pounds

    Well, for tents look at Naturehike and Lanshan for cheap and half the weight or less.

    For a sleeping pad, look at Thermarest.

    Pillows ...

    Here is a quick search on Amazon:

    Disclosure, after evaluating all of these, wife just bought a Copper Spur UL2 HV.

    As for the pads, if you sleep on your back you have a lot more range (and can use a lot less pad) than sidesleepers.

    More of a side/stomach sleeper but thanks for the info, will look at the above sites.

    For side & stomach sleeping, I've got to recommend the Therm-a-rest Neo Air xLite in size LONG.
    The reason I recommend the long is not for the length but for the width. When I used to sleep on my stomach with a 2" thick pad, I hated the way my arms would hang off the pad. The Neo Air xLite is 2-1/2" thick (plenty for any side sleeper) and the long is 25" wide (rather than the standard 20" wide), yet still only 1 pound.

    For side sleepers, I would recommend the side regular to save a small amount of weight, a little money, and some space.

    For pillows, I've been loving my Sea-to-summit Aeros... light weight with a comfortable cloth outer shell. (I've liked the light weight of the xped UL, but not the feel on my face).

    I've got a catch-and-release BA Slater SL2 that, while not ultralight be any means, would save you 2 pounds, PM me if you are interested.

    Specs here: https://www.rei.com/product/111801/b...later-sl2-tent

    Just browsing around various sites like REI, Campmor, and CampSaver, you can find quite a few tents that will be lighter than what you have now.
