Previously, I had used the Divide and Conquer method of getting enough pad under me for comfort while still fitting it in the kayak: I used a thin closed-cell foam pad plus an original ThermaRest (the 3/4 length kind). Divide and Conquer sufficed, but the Prolite 4 gives me more comfort yet packs smaller than *either* of the other pads alone. It is the perfect pad for someone of my size, and I recommend it without reservations.
