As you guys know I post when I buy or use good or bad field gear.
Bought one of these Russian Army sleeping Pads. They are thick 1950's type canvas with a thick rubber bottom,

Went on a mountain camping trip last night next to the Shenandoah valley and the temps went down in the 20s with snow.

No problem with cold coming in from the ground and slept very comfortably.
Better than the Air mattress
I also used a slightly used USGI modular sleeping bag with a gore tex shell.
It kept me very warm, but the multiple zippers were a pain in the butt' in the dark.
Still a good value, the GORE TEX holds in your body heat
Anyway The Ruskie pad is very heavy would be a great item for truck camping or a canoe trip but not for hiking
The Modern G.I. bag is worth it for the GORE TEX shell alone
By the way we took firearms and would have shot the Coyotes had they go close enough , so I am on topic
