The 3" Borah Pad. 100% Waterproof. Quick Self-inflate. 3 Year Warranty.

One of the FASTEST self-inflating waterproof foam pads available. Our customer's call this a camping must have!

The perfect high quality bed for outdoor lovers desiring cushioned comfort. Enjoy a good night's sleep, in nature.

Whether you need a camping pad, or just an extra mattress for overnight guests, this sleeping pad will take you or your guests, to the next level with a supportive feel. Oh and it's ready to go in SECONDS.


Made from 100% waterproof, WELDED, 22oz 1500D PVC vinyl, the same exact material made from whitewater rafts and truck tarps. Made to withstand stress, wear, and even claws from digging into it. Can be used indoors or outdoors.
>>Compare this to others made from welded & glued 18oz, 1000D PVC Vinyl.

Each pad is made from open cell, FIRM, polyurethane foam to deliver maximum support and pressure relief. Lay the pad over rocks, sand, grass, dirt, or even the back of a pick up truck. The firm foam inside will provide comfort over many surfaces. Firm pads have long been promoted as a preferred choice for those with back pain.
>>Compare this to others made from soft low quality foam which sinks you straight to the ground.

The 4 grommets allow you to strap this pad onto your raft for comfortable seating. The grommets are heavy rolled brass--thicker and can withstand a beating, plus it will NOT rust.
>>Compare this to other thinly rolled grommets needing to be replaced after several uses.

Straps are heavy woven and will not fray over time. All straps are welded together for strength and longevity.
>>Compare this to other standard straps sewn together and will easily fray.

The inner foam pulls in air as the valve is opened so you can be ready to rest in seconds. All you have to do is open the valve and watch the pad do all the work. Lay it down on the ground or place it on top of a cot. Each pad fits right onto a standard size cot.

Excellent Comfort

Bought this for my wife on a recent Hells Canyon Trip, we placed in on top of a cot and it was more comfortable than our bed at home. The dual valve system is nice as well.

Very well made

Took this pad down the Middle Fork and used it every day for a seat on the boat and to sleep on. Very happy with it.

3" Borah Pad Plus

I order a custom sized pad. Mine is only 57" long. It is still 27" wide. I wanted a pad that would roll smaller. It is still long enough for my body with the exception of below my knees. Paddle Idaho delivered it quickly and made to my specifications.

Well done thank you.

Just what we needed!

Just got done with a two night Carey Creek to Spring Bar trip. The pads are so easy to inflate and kept us sooooo comfortable!! Great sleeping pad!
