Thumbs up

I slept by an open window last night. That's close enough to camping for me.

My wife is on the lower end of BBW (north armerican size 16/18 on the bottom, smaller on top), but is all hip. I’m thinking that other larger women with similar builds may have the same problem that she has had when camping—hips push right through almost any sleeping pad or air mattress, pressing right against the hard ground. Which of course results in a bad night’s sleep. We tried big thick air mattresses, but for them to keep her hips off the ground they had to be inflated so hard that again it was not a good sleep.

Well, this Summer we finally came up with a solution, so that she actually got a good night of sleep when camping (only took 20+ years and a lot of investment). Warning, not necessarily a particularly cheap solution, but I’m hoping it will be worth it. So for any other hip-heavy women who are under 300 pounds…

We got this very compact, lightweight, clip together camping cot (by Thermorest—we bought it at Mountain Equipment Coop, but Thermorest is carried by a lot of higher end outdoor places). For sure got her the larger, more heavy duty, version (rated for up to 300 pounds). It has enough stretch and flex that her hips were off the ground and not on too much of a pressure point. http://www.mec.ca/product/5035-214/t.../?q=thermorest

Then on top of it we put an extra-thick Thermo-Rest sleeping pad (really a mini air mattress) that we already had. This helped even out the support—her hips still pushed through it to the cot, but it then supported the rest of her enough, and the cot was giving enough, that she was actually quite comfortable. I don’t think the exact model she has is showing in the MEC web page right now, but any that would inflate to 6+cm would probably do the job.
