You'd struggle to get better for the money

We bought 2 of these mats and have used them on a few wildcamp trips now. We've not found them to be slippy on the surface at all but that could be dependant on the type of sleeping bag one uses. They're really comfy, warm and pack up small. What more could we ask for!? We also made a more detailed review video from us here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z2YvJuA_0d8

5 out of 5 from us. Well done Alpkit, another brilliant product!

Comfy & compact...but...

I'm fairly impressed with this little mat. It's properly tiny when packed away and inflates to a fairly decent thickness. I slept out on this in November just to check out my gear tbh. (It's been a while since I camped in the garden!!)

I do have a few issues though... For a self inflating mattress it ... well... doesnt! I've tried letting it relax for a few days but it still basically needs blowing up. The foam is there of course which provides reasonable thermal protection from the floor and as I am prone to curling up the 2/3 length doesn't bother me.

The other issue is it is slippery, my tent is a lightweight with silky nylon groundsheet so that doesn't help and a combination of the two means I spent as much time trying to climb back onto this mat as I did sleeping on it; and that was on flat ground.

This mat would be perfect for ordinary camping in a regular tent, particularly for juniors, but as an ultralight option, adding stuff to stop it sliding about seems an annoyance and having to blow it up just seems like a design fault.

Still way cheaper than its competitors and does a pretty good job for the money.
