Do they sell them at Walmart? or any other chain store?
I have a cheap pad from Target that I bought for hammock use because it is wider than most pads. It is not as good as my blue foam pads from REI or an older 1/2 inch white foam pad from (one of) EMS/REI/IME.Walmart Pad
I have one that I got at the EMS bargain basement 20 years ago. Despite a few rips and burn marks, it's still good. It's especially usefull when sleeping in a hammock in cooler weather, like next weekend.
FWIW, most pads these days seem to be 3/8 inch thick. For winter camping I prefer the 1/2 inch pad but I generally carry a 3/8 pad as emergency gear.
