Product Description

A Backpacker Magazine Top Pick!

You just finished a long day of hiking, found the perfect campsite with an epic view and are ready to settle in for the night. Nothing could be more perfect than cinching up your sleeping bag or quilt on a nice comfortable sleeping pad.

That's why we designed our ReCharge sleeping pads with comfort in mind. Narrower vertical baffles that run across the body create a smooth sleeping surface while the non-slip finish of the diamond rip-stop will keep you from sliding off the pad.

The ReCharge UL is our answer for backpackers and thru-hikers. Featuring a tapered 72 x 20-inch sleeping surface, 2.5 inches of thickness, and weighing only 20 ounces, it provides an incredible comfort-to-weight ratio.

We wanted our ReCharge pads to be true 3-season pads. We've laminated high-loft synthetic microfiber insulation to the interior of each pad to minimize air movement and maximize warmth. As a result, the ReCharge UL achieves an estimated R-value of 3.5.

Finally, we utilize a large two-way flat valve to make inflation quick and easy. The valve features an internal built-in flap to prevent air from escaping when inflating.

  • Thickness: 2.5 inches
  • Estimated R-value: 3.5

How do I keep the valve open while deflating?

Our large two-way valve incorporates an internal flap to keep air escaping when inflating. However, this flap can make deflation difficult by constantly closing and keeping air from being pushed out.

To remedy this, we've added a small notch on the inside of the valve to keep the flap out of the way when trying to deflate the pad. Simply insert your finger into the valve opening and push the internal flap to around 90 degrees. It should then catch on the notch and stay in place. This will keep the airway open for easy deflation.

How do I make a repair using the included repair kit?

Please follow these steps to make a repair to your sleeping pad:

  1. Cut the repair patch to cover the puncture location and provide at least 1/2 inch of overlap. Try to keep the cut to a circular shape and avoid corners which can snag.
  2. Apply an adhesive to the leak area, extending slightly beyond the size of the patch.
  3. Press the entire patch down on the adhesive and squeeze down for 2-3 minutes to help the adhesive get a good grip.
  4. Let dry for 5-10 minutes, then apply another coat of adhesive on top of the patch and give it 15-20 minutes to cure. Depending on the location of the leak, you may want to apply an additional coat to help keep the patch down over curved areas.
  5. Let the pad dry flat overnight.

BEST BANG for the Buck out there.

WORKS! I own the UL Recharge and the Recharge "S" and I love them both. I took my Recharge UL on a 150 mile PCT section and it worked flawlessly every single night. Did a wild camp in November at 7000 feet and was freezing by the fire until I slid in my Paria 15 degree quilt strapped to the Recharge UL. In 4 minutes I was toasty warm when before my knees were knocking together by the fire.....NICE STUFF....I have NO desire for any other Pad even if it was given to me. Thanks Paria Love you guys and great customer service as well. Photo is from the freezing night with my Tarptent Moment SW.

Great Product & Great Customer Service

Quick and easy to inflate (under 3 minutes). Works like its supposed to. Lightweight. Ordered one for me and accidently picked the wrong one. Emailed customer support and they worked with me to send me this pad. It worked well and CS was so great I ordered one for my wife as well.

Good, warm pad for the money

For the price, I'm happy with pretty much every aspect of this pad's performance. It rolls up really small, and is quite compact. However, it's a little heavier than some pads out there with higher R Values, so if I had spent more money on it I would expect a lighter pad. I don't do a huge amount of backpacking. I mostly use this for kayak and car camping, so the weight is fine for that, and it's warm enough for three season use. At first I found the pad very difficult to stay on, and had a couple of restless nights rolling off the pad every time I dozed off. The trick I've found is to just underinflate it a bit, and at that level it's still comfortable and cushy but cradles you a little better. I am not a heavy user, but so far it's proven durable. It's also awesome for hammock camping, because the mummy shape of the pad really fits well with the shape of a hammock and it provides good support and insulation.

Great nights sleep

Quiet, warm, lightweight, rolls up to a decent size and took minimal effort to inflate. One of the best mats I've tried! Love it!
