About Therm-a-rest - In 1971, a mix of unemployed engineers, a leaky foam gardening pad, and the dream of a better way to sleep under the stars came together to change how we experience the outdoors forever. As climbers, Jim Lea, Neil Anderson and John Burroughs knew first hand that long days in the hills were only made longer by a horrible night's rest, and a better sleeping pad was key to changing that equation. This blend of science and a desire to make the most of every day outdoors created the world's first self-inflating air mattress, and it continues to be the fuel that drives us today..
Since we invented the very first self-inflating camping mattress in 1972, Therm-a-Rest has been committed to creating the finest portable outdoor comfort solutions for every kind of adventure. Our product offerings represent the leading edge of innovation across mattresses, sleeping bags, cots, pillows, hammocks, seating and more, with the majority of it still made in Seattle, USA & Midleton Ireland, where it all began over 45 years ago. Today, Therm-a-Rest remains at the forefront of comfort innovation and quality, with a commitment to building what we make, with our own hands, whenever possible.
