Cold Weather Mat / Pad Usage

What's the coldest weather that you've consistently (at least a few times) taken your (ground-use) sleeping mat or pad down to in temperature?

Please share the type of mat/pad, temperature, conditions (wet,...), and how it performed. [This thread applies to ground shelters. Please specify type of shelter mat/pad was used with.]

In short, this is an attempt to see what others are getting by with in cold weather.

I have a Therm-a-Rest NeoAir (the original model) and have used it in a tent several nights at 17°F and not been the least bit cold--at least until I tried to crawl out of my 20°F down bag in the morning.
