Should you find yourself without access to Therm-a-Rest Repair Kits, repairs can also be made using items commonly found at most outdoor gear shops. (Remember that for maximum effectiveness, ALL of the below repairs should begin with a clean and dry mattress. An alcohol swab is an ideal cleaner that dries fast.)

  • Small leaks not requiring a patch: A urethane-based glue should be used. Some popular brands are SeamGrip® and AquaSeal. Apply a small dab, large enough to completely seal the hole, and allow 24 hours for drying. If your mattress fabric is relatively smooth like the NeoAir or Trail mattresses, peel-and-stick bicycle tube patch kits are an option offering instant repair.
  • Larger holes and tears: All mattresses can be repaired with a self-adhesive fabric patch—like those used to repair jackets and tents. These are commonly found in outdoor gear shops. Cut the patch in a circle to generously cover the hole. Apply a small amount of urethane-based glue to the back of the patch and the area to be covered on the mattress. Apply patch and press firmly. Wipe away excess glue from edges and allow 24 hours to dry.

If you’re not comfortable making the repair yourself and have some time before your next trip, call our service department at 1-800-531-9531 for instructions on sending your mattress back for repair.

Roll the mattress up to force the water out of the open valve. If there is a lot of water, you may have to do this several times. Hang the mattress upside down with the valve open in a warm, dry place. It will take about three days for the mattress to dry out.

Regular cleaning will extend the life of your mattress, especially if you sleep in direct contact with its surface.

Do not put your mattress in the washing machine. Cleaning with a hose or in a bathtub is best. Do not forget to close the valve while washing. For general cleaning, a quick scrubbing with Formula 409®, BioClean All-Purpose Cleaner, or other general household cleaner is best.

For tree sap, spot clean with a cotton rag soaked in rubbing alcohol. This will take some work and sap will likely leave a stain. However, a dusting with talc or baby powder when you are done should eliminate any residual stickiness.

While both LuxuryLite cots are lightweight and pack up small enough to easily fit in a backpack, pannier or portage bag, our UltraLite Cot is the lightest, most packable cot available. However, if breathability is a priority, our Mesh Cot offers the most breathable comfort.
A single bow (one pole) can be used for a lighter weight setup, while a twist bow (double pole construction) is used for extra support. To build a single bow, insert a male pole into a female pole. Place a nylon foot on each end using the hole closest to the hook side, with the pole positioned on top of the platform. To build a twist bow, place a male pole and a female pole into one foot. Repeat the same process with another foot, so the two pieces are identical. Connect the male and female poles to create a bow. When assembled correctly, the feet will face opposite directions.

Repeat the same process with another foot, so the two pieces are identical. Connect the male and female poles to create a bow. When assembled correctly, the feet will face opposite directions.
Poles need to be fully seated in the back of the hole of the foot. To check if a pole is fully seated, you can tap it with a hand or against the ground gently.
To make installation easier, lay out half-assembled poles (one pole seated into one foot for single bow setup; a male pole and female pole seated into one foot for twist bow setup). Line up so all feet face in the same direction, which will help you more easily find the parts you are looking for.
Stand at the end of the fabric with both your feet on the shock-corded poles. Attach a single bow to one of the shock-corded poles using the hook on the nylon foot. Holding the opposite foot and the center of the pole, pull the bow away from the fabric until it is possible to hook the other foot. To attach a twist bow, make sure poles are assembled correctly by first lining up poles in the same direction so one set appears upside down. Connect one end of the bow to a shock-corded pole using the hook on the nylon foot. Twist (rotate) the other foot 180 degrees until the hook is facing the fabric. Apply tension to the bow with your free hand and hook the other foot.
For UltraLite Cots, the Lightweight Setup includes 4 single bows that support up to 175 lbs. Standard Setup includes 4 single bows and 2 twist (double) bows in center locations for extra support of weight up to 325 lbs. If you feel contact with a pole bow when lying in a cot that is set up with single poles, it is recommended that you use a twist bow for extra support. For Mesh Cots, Lightweight Setup (4 twist bows) supports up to 175 lbs, while Standard Setup (6 twist bows) supports up to 350 lbs.
You will notice there are more pole holes than there are poles. LuxuryLite Cots are designed for three different pole settings, providing the most adjustability of any cot. Multiple pole holes allow you to choose between no bow, a single bow or a double bow at different locations to customize your cot. For the lightest possible configuration for your needs, start with the four single poles, and then add poles where you feel you need the added support.
Cots can be stored partially assembled, saving you time during multi-day trips. For ease of reassembly, leave poles in foot when storing (may require larger stuff sack).
Sit down to get into the cot, avoiding any jumping or sliding, which can cause feet to splay. Once you are in the cot, the cot will sustain a great amount of direct pressure (increasing tension with applied weight), and you can roll freely from side to side. However, try to avoid any rocking motion from front to back, which can cause feet to splay and hooks to break off. When getting out of your cot, sit on the fabric or mesh (not the side poles) and push off on the side poles above the feet rather than between the feet to avoid generating lateral force and splaying feet sideways.
Spot clean fabric as necessary with a mild detergent. Do not machine wash. Hang to dry.
LuxuryLite® cots have twice as many, and more gently rounded feet compared to most cots on the market, which helps distribute your body weight and minimize cot feet wear and tent floor abrasion. Placing fabric or padding under the cot feet can also help further protect your tent from potential abrasion (especially on hard, rocky ground). Wear on tent floors will vary depending on the fabric weight. If your tent develops any wear spots due to gossamer fabrics and coatings, reinforce wear spots with pressure sensitive repair patches available in Therm-a-Rest® Repair Kits or similar products.

Therm-a-Rest® sleeping bags offer a lighter, more comfortable way to sleep. Using an integrated system approach that pairs mattress and pad together, our system solution also allows our bags to be among the lightest on the market, making them an ideal choice for anyone in search of warmer, more restful nights and lighter, more productive days in the backcountry. Read more about our Design Philosophy.

No. Our SynergyLink™ system that connects your bag and mattress together works with any pad up to 25” wide. We recommend Therm-a-Rest® NeoAir™ mattresses, especially the XTherm™, All Season and XLite™, because they are incredibly light and warm. They also provide reflective warmth you can feel through the bottom of our 3-season bags. Self-inflating mats and closed-cell mats also work well for customers who don’t have a Therm-a-Rest® NeoAir™ mattress. Like many sleeping bags, Therm-a-Rest® sleeping bags are tested and rated when paired with a mattress with an R-value of approximately 4.7, where R-Value is a measurement of the warmth of the mattress. This R-value is clearly marked on all Therm-a-Rest® mattress packaging and on our website. As long as you use a mattress with this R-value or higher, most people will be warm at the advertised temperature rating for any of our bags. Everyone sleeps differently in the outdoors, and you must ultimately find the combination that works best for you. If you are a warm sleeper, or are using a bag that has a temperature rating significantly higher than the temperature you are sleeping in, you may be comfortable with a lower R-value mattress. Alternatively, if you sleep cold, or have a bag that has a temperature rating significantly lower than temperature sleeping in, you may prefer to use a higher R-value pad.
For over 40 years Therm-a-Rest has pursued a single mission: to provide the best night of sleep in the outdoors. Along the way, we’ve spent countless hours field testing, conducting independent trials and studying consumer feedback. And we are one of the only manufacturers in North America with an in-house cold chamber. For close to 20 years, we have tested sleeping bags and mattresses together in our cold chamber and examined almost every aspect of sleep insulation to better gauge real world performance. We have always approached product testing with the view that the mattress and sleeping bag need to function together as one system to provide optimal comfort and performance. Through our decades of research, we have learned exactly what makes a great night under the stars.
Our extensive research into the differences between the way men and women sleep confirms that most women are indeed colder sleepers than men. Our approach to designing women’s-specific sleeping bags with added warmth has three main components: First, we addressed fit because a bag with too much or too little space is not efficient and will result in lost heat. Having just the right amount of dead air space around you allows you to heat your bag up efficiently and makes maintaining that warmth easier. Our women’s bags are 6 in. (15 cm) shorter in length than our unisex bags, and we cut them with added room in the hip area, while designing a more tailored fit in the shoulders. Second, our reflective ThermaCapture™ Radiant Heat Technology [link to tech page] is applied to the inner lining of all women’s sleeping bags, reflecting radiant heat that is otherwise lost through traditional insulation. With it, you warm-up faster and it saves you weight and bulk because we can use it, instead of down or synthetic insulation, to contribute about 5F (3C) degrees-worth of the sleeping bag’s temperature rating. And finally, we added a great little down pocket for your feet inside the foot box of each bag that we call the Toe-asis™ [link to tech page]. How many times have you gotten in your bag with socks on, hoping to warm-up your feet faster? Now you have the choice to simply slide your feet up into this little haven of warmth and comfort. You can even roll side-to-side, and the whole foot box rolls with you to keep your feet toasty warm.
Research shows that almost 70% of people sleep on their side, 13% sleep on their back, and only 7% sleep on their stomach. Unlike most mummy bags that are designed for people who sleep on their back, Therm-a-Rest® sleeping bags are designed to accommodate a wide range of sleep positions. Therm-a-Rest sleeping bags are designed with extra room in the torso to allow your shoulders, elbows and hips to move freely. At the head and foot the fit is closer, keeping you warm and decreasing overall weight. In addition, the placement of our SynergyLink connectors is optimized to keep the mattress secure while you roll, yet allow the head and foot of the bag to rotate 90-degrees in either direction, following you for maximum comfort and warmth. Our Efficient Comfort design is ideal for side sleepers or anyone who wants more freedom of movement without adding extra weight to their pack.
Our patent-pending, easy-to-use connectors ensure that you stay on your pad, so you can stay warm all night. To insert your mattress, start with a fully inflated pad. Insert the head of the pad into the fabric connector near the head of the sleeping bag, then bend the pad and insert the foot of the pad into the other connector.

The Mattress Loop Kit, now included with each new blanket, and sold separately in the Fast & Light Mattress Snap Kit, includes (8) loop tabs with adhesive backing that let you attach your Therm-a-Rest blanket directly to any mattress, creating a lightweight sleep system.

Unlike other mattresses, Therm-a-Rest® NeoAir™ mattresses reflect a moderate amount of radiant heat. When used next to the skin, the effect is noticeable. Although this radiant heat always contributes to overall warmth, most sleeping bags have too much insulation in the back for the effect to be noticed. Therm-a-Rest® sleeping bags are designed with less insulation in the back than most other sleeping bags, allowing radiant heat to be felt throughout the night.
Therm-a-Rest® sleeping bags use a unique synthetic insulation that incorporates the best characteristics of both short and long staple insulation. Our EraLoft™ synthetic insulation uses three distinct fibers to create a structure that is lightweight, compressible, warm and durable. The hollow fibers are highly resistant to water and provide warmth even when wet. The insulation is built into Therm-a-Rest® sleeping bags using shingle construction, a configuration that minimizes heat loss and provides the most efficient performance.

Developed in Europe, the EN 13537 sleeping bags ratings are the results of strict, standardized tests designed to provide you with a more meaningful and objective measure of a sleeping bag's warmth. Without standardization, a sleeping bag's advertised warmth rating is unreliable at best, arbitrarily picked by the manufacturer. That's why most manufacturers today submit their sleeping bags to an EN-certified lab for testing.

Each EN sleeping bag test produces four temperature ratings-Upper Limit, Comfort, Lower Limit and an Extreme rating, with the following definitions:

From Wiki:

  • Upper Limit - the temperature at which a standard man* can sleep without excessive perspiration. It is established with the hood and zippers open and with the arms outside of the bag.
  • Comfort - the temperature at which a standard woman* can expect to sleep comfortably in a relaxed position.
  • Lower Limit - the temperature at which a standard man can sleep for eight hours in a curled position without waking.
  • Extreme - the minimum temperature at which a standard woman can remain for six hours without risk of death from hypothermia (though frostbite is still possible).

*For the purpose of these measurements, a "standard man" is assumed to be 25 years old, with a height of 1.73 m and a weight of 73 kg; a "standard woman" is assumed to be 25 years old, with a height of 1.60 m and a weight of 60 kg.

The three ratings commonly advertised are Comfort, (Lower) Limit and Extreme. For Men's bags, most companies advertise the Limit rating, and for women's bags, the Comfort rating, though even this can vary.

To provide you a more meaningful selection process, Therm-a-Rest sleeping bags are now grouped into seasons and, within that grouping, we provide you with the exact EN test results for each bag so you can compare it directly against other EN-rated bags.

It is unusual, but occasionally a down plume can pass through the fabric of any sleeping bag. The best solution is to cut the down plume as close to the fabric as possible with a pair of scissors. This removes the sharp end of the plume that managed to penetrate the fabric. Then, push the remainder of the plume back into the bag. Rub the fabric between your fingers to seal the hole. Most sleeping bags hold more than two million down plumes. The loss of a handful will make no difference in your sleeping bag’s performance.
Sleeping bags must be stored dry and loose (not compressed) in order to extend the life of the bag. All Therm-a-Rest® sleeping bags come with a Compartmental Storage Sack. For long term storage, the sleeping bag should be stored with the sack fully extended. For short-term storage or when shipping, you can use the smaller draw cord loop in the center of the sack to create a tighter container that saves space.

Follow the care instructions below to help maintain the high quality and extend the life of your down or synthetic Therm-a-Rest® sleeping bag.

 

Hydrophobic Down Care Instructions:

All hydrophobic down treatments wash out over time, and washing is hard on all down. Extend the life of your bag by spot cleaning with a damp sponge, and only machine washing when necessary.

Washing

Hand wash or machine wash in a large capacity, front loading washing machine, using 3 oz. of Nikwax(r) Down Wash(tm). Select cold water and a gentle/delicate cycle with two rinses. We recommend an additional spin cycle as well to extract as much water as possible before drying.

DO NOT dry clean. DO NOT bleach. DO NOT iron.

Drying

Hang dry your bag whenever possible. This can be a long process (24-48 hours or more), but this is by far the best way to get the longest life from your down. Use a well-ventilated, low-humidity environment. Hand-tease or shake out your bag gently to break-up down clumps, and flip it often to help speed the process.

If you need to dry your bag faster, tumble dry in a large dryer on low heat. As your bag gets drier, it will begin to loft and can actually fill the dryer chamber, preventing it from tumbling. This can cause hot spots and even melt the bag's shell, so check it often for overheating and visually inspect frequently to make sure it's tumbling. When you check it, feel for clumps of wet down and either shake the bag gently or hand-tease the clumps apart to redistribute down. Throwing in 3-5 tennis balls can help agitate the bag, breaking up those wet down clusters to speed dry times.

 

Nikwax® Hydrophobic Down Treatment and Re-Treatment

Use Nikwax® Down Proof to restore your down's hydrophobic properties. Specially formulated to renew the Nikwax Hydrophobic Down treatment, it can also be used to provide improved water-resistance to any down bag. Follow directions on the bottle.

Storage

The less time your sleeping bag is compressed, the longer it will serve you by maintaining the loft necessary to keep you warm. Store your sleeping bag loose, in a cool, dry place. If you must store it in a bag, use the extended storage sack it came in, or something even larger. Never use a waterproof bag for long-term storage.

 

Eraloft Insulation Care Instructions:

Washing

Hand wash or machine wash in large-capacity, front loading washing machine. Use a mild, non-detergent soap. Select cold water and a gentle cycle with two rinses.

DO NOT dry clean. DO NOT bleach. DO NOT iron.

Drying

Hang dry your bag whenever possible. This can be a long process (24-48 hours), but this is by far the best way to get the longest life from your bag. Use a well-ventilated, low-humidity environment. Unzip fully and flip it often to help speed the process.

If you need to dry your bag faster, tumble dry in a large dryer on low heat. As your bag gets drier, it will begin to loft and can actually fill the dryer chamber, preventing it from tumbling.

Proposition 65 is the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act passed by voters in the State of California in 1986. The act was created to inform people about possible exposure to chemicals known by the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects and/or other reproductive harm.
For an MSR tent, waterproof means that all external fabric has been coated with our exceptional polyurethane coatings and the seams have been factory-taped, making that area of the tent impermeable to water. "mm" refers to millimeters and is paired with a number to represent a standardized measurement of how waterproof a coating is. For instance, a 1500mm coating will withstand a 1500mm (5') column of water for more than one minute before a single drop might appear through the fabric. That's strong enough to prevent rain from leaking into a tent in a hurricane-force storm.
"D" stands for Denier. It's a numbering system for fibers, filaments and yarns, in which the lower numbers are lighter/finer and the higher numbers heavier/coarser. "T" stands for Thread Count – specifically the number of warp and fill threads in a square inch. The lower numbers represent a loosely woven fabric and the higher number a tightly woven fabric. These two numbers together help indicate the strength and feel of a piece of fabric.
The 7-point design has a "flat" and a "pointed" end. For all configurations, the "pointed end" should always be used as the highest supported point. The opposite "flat edge," which consists of three points, can be stretched tightly and attached to a shelter, car rack, or even the pole-supported vestibule of a tent to form a protected area. Try placing the poles at different points, using no poles at all or adding more poles to create new living spaces. (Paddles and sticks work well in the cord storage pockets, too.) Experiment and be creative!
We recommend that you use an MSR footprint (sold separately) underneath your tent. Customized to fit each specific model, it will not only keep your tent floor clean and dry, but it will also protect it from excessive abrasion, prolonging the life of the tent. In addition, some of our tents can be set up with just the footprint and fly, creating an incredibly light, minimalist alternative to a full tent.
Never pack or store your tent if it is wet, damp or dirty. Although we use the best polyurethane waterproofing available, prolonged exposure to moisture causes hydrolysis which, in turn, causes the waterproof layer to break down, becoming soft, sticky and no longer waterproof. Storing a wet tent for as little as 24 hours in warm weather is also likely to start the process of mildew forming on the fabric. Mildew will cause your tent to stain, smell and will also lead to the premature breakdown of the waterproof coating. Mildew and moisture damage are not covered under the Limited Warranty.

For long-term storage, keep your tent in a dry and cool area, out of direct sunlight. Store it outside of its stuff sack, as you would a sleeping bag, in a breathable, over-sized cotton or mesh duffel for protection. On the cheap, an old pillowcase is ideal.
A tent's lifespan is directly connected to the amount you use it. A tent's biggest enemy is UV radiation (just like your skin). A tent that lives in extreme conditions at high altitude, such as Everest Base Camp, may only last a few months, while a well taken care of tent, used occasionally under normal conditions, can last for many years.
At MSR, we voluntarily follow ASTM International F 1934-98 standards around these two tent industry terms. In accordance with this standard, packaged weight includes the total weight of the packaged contents off the shelf. Minimum weight, by comparison, refers to the combined weight of the tent body, rainfly (if applicable) and tent poles, but not any of the other items that may appear in the package, such as tent stakes, guy cords, stuff sack, etc.

Many MSR backpacking tents can be pitched using only the rainfly, poles and footprint, and in our tent specs we call this non-industry standard setup option our Fast & Light weight.

To learn more about packaged weight vs. minimum, and the manufacturing processes that can affect them, check out our blog post on the topic.
Guying out your tent will provide more stability in windy or extreme conditions while also maximizing ventilation. To guy out your tent, run cord from the tent's guy point through the tensioner. Pass the cord around the stake and back through the tensioner, keeping the curved side of the tensioner toward the stake. Tie a knot at the end of the cord. To tighten cord, pull the tensioner up along the cord and release.
One of the easiest ways to damage your tent is by not drying it as quickly as possible after it gets wet. Storing a wet tent for as little as 24 hours in warm weather is likely to start the process of mildew formation. Mildew can permanently damage the waterproof coatings by causing them to separate from the fabric, but mild to severe staining is more common. Mildew stains are permanent. They cannot be removed without potential harm to the fabric coatings and are not covered by warranty. Even when your tent appears to be dry after use, it is always best to assure it is completely dry before storing. Hang it outside or pile it loosely in your house for a few days, turning it inside and out to assure it has dried everywhere. Never machine dry your tent as the heat can melt the fabric.
Cleaning your tent is not necessary unless it has an offensive odor or becomes heavily soiled. If heavily soiled, the pressure from a regular garden hose will remove most loose dirt. For more severe cleaning, set up your tent and hand wash it with warm water, a sponge and mild, non-detergent soap. Do not use dishwashing liquid, detergent, bleach, pre-soaking solutions, or spot removers. Rinse well. Dry your tent by pitching it or line-drying it. Never dry clean, machine- wash or machine-dry your tent. Any of these methods can remove all the waterproof coatings from the tent.
Superior fabrics and construction make MSR tents extremely waterproof. The rainfly and floor are factory seam taped, so seam sealing is not necessary. If any problems develop over time, seam seal the specific area only, on the inner, shiny side of the area. Follow the instructions on the seam sealant tube. Use a syringe for accuracy. Allow the seam sealant to dry, then apply a light dusting of baby or talc powder to prevent it from sticking to the rest of the tent when stuffed or folded.
Condensation is the build-up of moisture inside your tent due to differences between the inside and outside temperatures. There are three main sources:
  • Weather Conditions: High humidity, low temperatures, and rainy conditions create the most condensation.
  • People: We produce about 1 - 2 pints of moisture per night through breathing and skin evaporation.
  • Wet Environment: Wet ground or wet gear stored inside the tent.
While no tent design can eliminate condensation, the key to reducing it is ventilation. Cooler, drier air has to flow into your tent and warm, moist air must escape. We have designed a variety of ways to do this.

To start, the tent body and ceiling are made of breathable and mesh fabrics. This allows moisture to escape the interior of your tent. However, it must also be able to escape the waterproof fly, and every MSR rainfly has a peak vent that provides protection from the outside, while still allowing essential, free-flowing fresh air to move through your tent. You can also leave a door open in good weather, or take advantage of the double sliders on the doors to vent from the top where warm and moist air tends to accumulate. Make sure to leave at least two vents open if possible, allowing any breeze to provide cross-flow ventilation for maximum circulation. Guying out your rainfly will also increase ventilation in hot or humid conditions.

Video: What causes condensation in a tent
You can do minor repairs in the field using one of several alternatives. We offer waterproof, self-adhesive patches (sold separately) for all of the fabrics and mesh on your tent. Seam sealants are also a good alternative for small holes, or use duct tape for minor, temporary field repairs. If you use duct tape, be sure to remove it as soon as you are through with your trip. The adhesive will eventually eat away at the fabric and you will end up needing a larger patch. We recommend carrying at least one of these as a precaution. If you have a large tear, our Product Service Center can also fix your tent after you return from your trip.
If a tent pole breaks, you can make a temporary splint with the pole repair sleeve. Slide the repair sleeve over the broken section and tape or wedge in place with a stick to hold it secure.

Our Mesh Cot is very breathable, with the tiny holes in the fabric allowing for air circulation. Our UltraLite Cot fabric is not breathable, but the lack of breathability only affects contact points with the body; the cot’s open, off-the-ground design allows air to circulate below the cot to help cool hot spots.
Proposition 65 requires that the Governor of California maintain and publish a list of harmful chemicals. The list is updated annually and includes chemicals that can be found in solvents, drugs, dyes, food additives, by-products of certain processes, pesticides, and tobacco products. A chemical is listed if it has been classified as a reproductive toxicant or carcinogen by an "authoritative" organization on the subject. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Food and Drug Administration, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, the National Toxicology Program, and the International Agency for Research on Cancer are considered authoritative for carcinogens. For reproductive toxicants, the authorities are the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Food and Drug Administration, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, and International Agency for Research on Cancer. Chemicals will also be listed if they are required to be labeled or identified as a carcinogen or as a reproductive toxicant by an agency of the state or federal government.
While LuxuryLite cots offer no insulation, you can easily increase the warmth of the cot by pairing it with a Therm-a-Rest ® mattress or blanket, or our new Therm-a-Rest® LuxuryLite® Cot Warmer. Featuring ThermaCapture® Radiant Heat Technology, the Cot Warmer attaches to your cot to capture your body’s heat and increase cot warmth by 10-15 degrees F.
