The Airo 120 was designed to help you go a little bit further and travel a lot lighter, at 450 g it can dramatically decrease the weight of your sleeping kit.
A lower weight and smaller pack size than the larger Airo 180 this 2/3 length mat is designed to keep your torso insulated. The tapered design, lightweight fabric and aggressive die-cut foam trim the mat down so that there is no excess weight - compromising on length and comfort, but helping you get a good nights sleep when you need it.

Top piece of kit
I used this mat for around seven years with fairly heavy use. I’ve used it in base camps, bothies, tents and bivi’s. It was reliable, durable and lightweight. For the size and weight it was very comfy. I’m on the tall side at 6.3 and still found it big enough.
It inflates well and just needs topping up once inflated, I’ve found this to be the case with all self inflating mats I have used. I got a small hole it once but this was easily fixed with the repair kit that was included. It finally gave up on life last summer when it delaminated whilst camping in 30 degree weather. I can’t have any complaints though given how much use I had from it.
Will be looking to buy another when it is back in stock
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.
Comfortable.... but not great at all.
I have had this product for 2 years now and im just over it. it does not self-inflate. it requires a good blowing. its also tiny. Im not the tallest man alive, but from my knees downards are always off the mat. I sadly must always resort to using my backpack to tuck my legs into when camping using this mat.... to stop them freezing during the night.
Would not recommend.
