  Top two mattresses:
  Posted by: Waterbird on Jun-06-13 9:29 PM (EST)

1) Exped Synmat 7, highest rated by backpackers for comfort. Will fit in any kayak or canoe. I don't know of a Thermarest that equals the Synmat in comfort. Insulated for winter (rated to one degree F).

2) REI Camp Bed 3.5, a self-inflatable. Won't fit in a kayak, but would be okay in a canoe. This is the most comfort you can get from a camping mattress, short of a full-size airbed. A bit more comfortable than the Synmat 7. Easier to inflate (the Synmat is a pain to inflate).
