3 Year Alpine lite Guarantee Your mat is warrantied for 3 years against defects in materials or workmanship. If the mat is found defective under the warranty we will repair or replace it at our discretion free of charge. Mats may be replaced with a fully guaranteed but cosmetically irregular replacement. Normal wear, puncture, misuse, alteration or abuse is not covered. Please follow the care instructions below to ensure the maximum life of your mat. The lifespan of an incorrectly stored mat will be considerably shortened. When you get your mat open the valve and let the mat self-inflate. Add a couple of breaths then close and store overnight. Next day open the valve and store as normal. Inflation Open the valve and allow the mat to inflate naturally. Add a few breaths to add air pressure for the de- sired level for comfort. Close valve. Your mat is now ready for use. Deflation Open the valve, fold the mat into 3 or 4, sit on the mat until all the air is squashed out. Roll from one end towards the valve end. Close the valve and pack. Storage All brands of self-inflating mat should be stored the same way. Make sure the mat is stored dry, unrolled, with valve open and full of air. If the mat is stored rolled up then mildew may form on the cover and mois- ture trapped inside may result in delamination. This is not covered by warranty. Cleaning Every now and then to make sure that food, damp and other materials do not degrade the mat. To clean, inflate the mat and close the valve. Wash with techwash and rinse. Leave unrolled to dry, and donï¿½t forget to open the valve. Tips * Always check for puncturing hazards under mat area when setting camp (sharp rocks, thorns) * Use a ground cloth beneath mat if not sleeping in a tent * Its not a flotation device * Do not pressurize or inflate with a pump * Do not leave in direct sunlight for prolonged periods

Fits into my suitcase a treat - my Dozer was a little too large for taking abroad on long haul flights (!), so I bought this.
Compared to the Dozer, it does an admirable job and provides a comfortable nights sleep.
Perfect for lightweight travel.
This is a step up from the traditional foam sleeping matt. It folds up much smaller, it lies completely flat and its really comfy. I have had mine a few years and it still seems to work OK, although it doesn't really self-inflate - it takes about 30 seconds blowing to get it up.
I bought one of these in 2013 prior to a trip to the Himalayas and have used it extensively ever since.
Pros-Lightweight, small pack size, good insulation properties, durable and very comfortable
Cons-doesn't self inflate which means puffing and blowing and trying to shut off the valve at the same time. That's fine at sea level but at 5000 metres altitude it's not much fun!! I also imagine that the moisture from my breath will rot the inside at some point.
Would definately buy again though.
light convenient and packable but a bit on the thin side
I've stopped using the Airo 180 as it's a little too thin for comfort. However, I'm about 85 kilos (14stone) so a lighter person might fare better, but my experience is of feeling the ground and interrupted sleep. It is v well made and v light... just not for me. I've tried a slightly thicker but still v lightweight pad and found the difference a luxury I can't do without.
