Cloud Basesleeping mat
Lightweight inflatable camping mat weighing 395 grams and 6 cm thick to soak up uneven ground
Cloud Base sleeping mat
Lightweight, thick, comfortable and easy to inflate and deflate. Cloud Base is designed to make lightweight camping comfortable night after night after night after night leaving you refreshed and ready to get after the day.
Cloud Base is criss-crossed with diamond shaped chambers that act as little pillows of air. As the mat has no foam inside it rolls down small making it especially suited for activities where space is in short supply such as back packing and bikepacking.
Comfort comes in big supply courtesy of its generous 6 cm thickness. Inflation is via a wide one-way valve which makes inflation and deflation quicker, and means you can take a breath without the whole mat going down.
The whole mat rolls away into its own stuff bag which also includes a repair kit for emergency field repairs.

Fantastic nights sleep
I used the cloud base last night on a wooden sleeping platform in a bothy. I got a great nights sleep. Plenty of depth to the mat which meant I didn't feel the solid surface below, I am 90kg. Woke up this morning with the mat just as firm as it when I inflated it. I would recommend this to anyone. Really pleased with the weight and value for money as well.
Cloudbase is brillaint
An excellent mat used to replace my helium. It's lite and comfy and long enough. I'm 6ft 5 and 110kg and it stays inflated all night. Another excellent product from alpkit. Thanks
Cloudbase is quality!
When looking for a new sleeping mat to replace my old mountain equipment helium after the valve broke on it, i was looking for three things, these were comfort, lightweight and affordable. The Cloudbase ticked all these boxes.
Comfort - The mats honeycomb construction kept me incredibly comfortable and warm all night meaning i had a great night sleep on two consecutive nights wild camping on uneven ground.
Lightweight - The Cloudbase is extremely lightweight and compact when packed away, in fact, I managed to squeeze it into the stuff sack for my sleeping bag which fits nicely into the bottom compartment of my rucksack, meaning that all of my sleeping equipment was in one place and both of them together weighing about 1.7 kilos; not bad for a bed.
Affordable - At 50 quid the Cloudbase doesn't break the bank unlike other market competitors such as therm-a-rest. However the only slight niggle that i had was that Robens make a very similar mat for about 40 quid, but i favoured alpkit as I'm a huge fan of the business and their customer service is second to none - it comes with a three year warranty and even came with a personalised note signed by the team.
Overall, although I've only used it twice so far, im loving my new bit of kit and would recommend it to anyone who likes a good night sleep and it to be lightweight, something that i imagine any outdoor enthusiast would want. I also am really impressed by Alpkit, like many times before, with their supreme customer service and would recommend them as a business to anyone!
Ace mat this. Buzzing at the price when I found it, even more satisfied at its quality. Slept on it in a rocky cave for a windy bivvy on the moors. It evened out a bad surface well, even when turning all night to get my face out the gusts as the wind changed.
10/10 would recommend & have recommended
Inflates in seconds and feels brill. Deflates quick and packs away in its own bag woohoo
Good for the price
Good mat for the price.
Mine weighs 399 grams by itself and 414 grams with the bag and patch kit.
Rolled up it's 26cm's long with a 25cm circumference which gives a very good packed volume of 1.3 litres.
I got this to replace an UL Exped mat which has served me very well over the years but has a few drawbacks.
1) I'm 183cm and a 183cm mat is slightly too short.
2) Is slightly too narrow at 50cm's wide.
3) I'm not a fan of the vertical baffles.
The Cloud base covers all these issues being slightly longer/wider and having that honeycomb construction.
I weigh 85kg's and have found that any mat less than 6cm's thick means that as a side sleeper either my hips or shoulders touch the ground. After 2 nights out I'm happy to say that the Cloud base keeps me just off the ground and is extremely comfortable.
The trick is to NOT over inflate.
My only gripe would be that the valve is a bit of a faff. The bit of rubber/plastic that stops the air coming out when you blow it up, does have a tendency to dislodge itself which results in a deflated mat but this is only when you are blowing it up.
NO air was lost during the night.
I'll also be interested to see how durable the material is over time.
All in all very happy with my purchase .
Cloud Base Sleeping mat
Mine just arrived in the post, packaged with a nice little handwritten personal not which is always nice (don't get that from Amazon)
So before this I had a Thermarest NeoAir xlite, I hated it as I couldn't get comfortable and the noise drove me mad. Packing away was always a faff too.
So far the Cloud Base is exactly what I want as ultralight backpaker here in the UK, I will pair it with a torso length piece of CF for thermal and protection qualities.
I will only be giving this a 4 star as I have only inflated it the once in the house and already the inside is soaking wet from my breath, time will tell if this then becomes mouldy.
I am 6ft, 90kg and a side sleeper.
Attractive price. Punctured the first night I used it when bivouacking in a forest but not a big deal as I found the leak and used the repair kit. Good mat nevertheless.
