If frontcountry luxury is your thing, the Motobed’s all-in-one system delivers all the comfort of home. Everything you need is integrated: a synthetic 90-by-64-inch quilt (directly attached to the pad via zippers, with cinches that close the footbox); a soft mattress cover and pillowcase; and two 76-by-25-inch sleeping pads that stacked together are 3 inches thick. The pads score a superwarm R-value between 7.0 and 9.0 (Zenbivy doesn’t have an exact figure) and reliably self-inflate, usually needing just two to three extra top-off breaths. While it takes up as much space as a small microwave and you wouldn’t want to carry it more than a few hundred yards, the Motobed’s quick setup reduces stress and its package deal lightens the financial load.

 35°F; unisex large and extra-large
