Therm-a-Rest Trail Pro ($90)
A good sleeping pad makes a world of difference. You don’t need much, but having the right setup definitely helps. Therm-a-Rest makes some of the best, this one in particular is on point: self-inflating means less huffing and puffing on your part, and at over two inches thick you won’t be feeling those roots. Best of all? It’s made in Seattle, Washington.
