  1. Never understood why sleeping pads aren’t longer. You’re stuffing sacks, bags, anything really, at the bottom of your pad where your feet hang off???? WTF? Those things first of all aren’t made for that, and second of all will never stay put. All of the other tips are solid!

    • I agree, and as someone who is quite tall, this can be a challenge at times. There is one simple reason why a lot of sleeping pads run short though. It’s to cut weight. If they are smaller and shorter, they won’t weigh as much and most people only care about having padding under their back. In the winter though, your legs and feet can get cold without a good pad too.
