So so comfy

Cards on the table: I'm old, broken and my back is riddled with arthritis so I wake up stiff and sore and groaning like a zombie with toothache.
I've reached the point where self-inflating mats just don't provide enough comfort and I spent a significant amount of last year resorting to strong pain killers, muscle relaxants and brandy to see me through a night.
Then along came the numo. The extra depth means it is a really comfortable experience. The larger end ribs ensure you stay on top rather than roll off in the night. And it's light too!
Downsides are: the need to inflate it (offset in my belief by the comfort) and the reduced insulation versus a foam filled mat (extra convective heat loss) though that may be partially offset by the extra loft in the underside of the sleeping bag in the grooves. It is a wee bit noisier than a normal mat too.
I love mine as it has stopped me hanging up my backpacking gear. Money well spent!

Best mat I've ever used

I've used this from bikepacking to sleeping on floors of friends all over Europe, and this thing is the lightest, smallest and most comfy sleeping mat I've ever used. Managed to burst it on my break lever whilst bivying, and the included repair pack let me fix it in the dark and snow in less than 3 minutes. Used over 100 times since, no problems. You get used to blowing it up and deflating it pretty quickly and is worth every puff.

Great bit of kit

Just got back from a weekend camping on Dartmoor. My kids have inherited my ME and Multimat sleeping mats and I decided to give the Numo a go. It's a great bit of kit..very comfortable and packs down very small.. I didn't have to allocate space for it (as I have with my previous sleep mats) as I knew I'd be able to find space for it somewhere. Plenty long enough (I'm 6 ft) and whilst it looks narrow I found I didn't roll off it as much as I do with my other mats.
In summary, it packs down great, insulates you from the ground well and is comfortable.

I love this thing!

My Numo is a few years old (it had the slight bit of insulation on the inside) and has found it's way around the world bikepacking & camping. Previously, I used a couple different pads from the big T company and never slept well. Since the Numo arrived, I've slept great! Unfortunately, mine now has a very small leak that I can't locate so I might have to 'upgrade' to the newer version like I bought for my wife.

Braw mat!

Had this mat for a few months now & used it wild camping on the Scottish hills & at campsites. It is very comfy & I get a great nights sleep on it. It also packs down very small & is lightweight which now allows me to pack my overnight camping gear into my day sack.

Envy of all

Bought for my son (14) on a school trek in Norway. Apparently he was he envy of all, as he had the most comfy, lightweight may if all his mates. Borrowed it myself last weekend and loved it. Very comfy for old women too.

Great but mine has, seemingly, died

I've had mine for about 3 years now. In fact, it's old enough it has the small bit of insulation on the top inside. Anyway, after a trip to Iceland, it has sprung at least one small leak that I can't find, no matter what I do. I've tried submerging it, spraying it with soapy water, etc. All, to no avail. For the price, I can buy 3 of these mats for the price of a 'name brand' comparable mat. So, it's a no brainer to buy another as a replacement.

Great, light and quick to inflate

I have only used it a couple of times on bike packing trips: it packs up very small (think a 50cl beer can..) it is light, very comfortable and it inflates very quickly with a few puffs! A great mat so far..

Dartmoor keith
exactly as described

Ive used this mat for static camping, festivals and a mountain marathon. Down to 5 degree overnight low. Unprecedented level of comfort at this weight and size. At the lower end of the temperature range I noticed the cooler nature of the inflatable mat compared to self inflaters or CCF but when weight and space and comfort are priorities this is really hard to beat.
I've given it 5 stars as it does all that it claims to in spades.


I've previously used the Airo 120 (perfectly fine, did the job well!) but wanted something with a smaller pack size to trim down my existing bikepacking rig.

I was unsure what to expect going for a non self inflating mat after using a competitor's model that was, in a word, crap.

Really impressed with my new mat from Alpkit both in pack size and comfort level. It also arrived super quick on the standard delivery.

I love it

This mat is amazing...light, smal packable and does fit my sleeping habits.

I need 15-17 breaths to fill it.
After the first night (-6°C) I thought my matt has a smal leak also, like one of the previous guys mentioned. But it was just the cooling down of the air.
Just think about it...You push a high volume of 35-30°C air inside the mat at first. As soon as it cool down to the surrounding temps the pressure will lower also.
Just make sure to inflate the mat some time before the sleeping and add some more air after the cooling down/right before sleeping...everything will be perfect!

Keep on with your great work Alpkit!

Light and comfy

Just used mine on a week's cycle camping trip. Packs small and is very light. I found it very comfy - but I sleep on my back. Does what is says on the tin.


This product gets a massive thumbs up from my mother, who loves camping but has trouble with sciatica. Everyone functions better after a good night's sleep!

Mark on the Moor
10/10 for service and quality

Purchased this item for my wild camping trips up on Dartmoor , very light very strong and very comfortable , would recommend this to anyone buying this mat .
And the companies after sales is 10/10 .

Great mat, valve lets it down

The mat is fantastic, however I have used it considerably over the past three years and over time the hard plastic of the valve has worn through the mat material and it is now irrepairable. A slight change in the mat design would ensure this mat kept it's 5 star rating from me.

Great comfy mat that packs small and light

I've used this mat a lot and find it perfect - it packs very small and light, and is easy to inflate and roll up afterwards. it's good at insulating you from the ground and is very comfortable although it may be a bit narrow for wider people. only slight issue is that it is a bit slippery so your sleeping bag can tend to slide around on it - maybe some rubbery strips would help with that...

great we thing

ive had mine for aeyar and even let my son use it for his dofe exped. ive had the micro leak issue and it took ages with very soap water to find it only appeared when alot of weight was put on the mat very glad the repair kit worked becuse duct tape wont stick to it

apart from this it comfortable and smoothes out the usual bumps very well i always sleep well.

Good summer mat but not suited to cold conditions

I bought the Numo to replace an Exped Synmat UL 7 S that had failed after 6 years intermittent use (One of the internal baffles had split the length of the mat, leaving an uncomfortable bulge).

It is definitely a 2-3 season mat and I find it considerably colder than the Exped mat, similar to a standard foam mat (Although far more comfortable). A lot of the cold comes through the gaps between the ribs where the top and bottom surfaces connect.

The Numo also requires far more effort to inflate than the Exped as it takes sometime for air to pass from the first tube to the subsequent ones. So you end up blowing at a higher pressure for longer, which is harder work, especially at altitude.

All in all a good, lightweight entry-level or summer bikepacking / microadventure mat. However if you are looking for something to use winter mountaineering or in cold conditions I'd recommend picking something warmer.

I've attached a photo of the amount of snow melt from a single night camping between the Numo (left) and a therm-a-rest self inflating mat (right). Not overly scientific, however my climbing partner and I are similar height and build and were using similarly rated sleeping bags in the same tent.

Super lightweight but not very comfy

I really like that it packs away so small and weighs hardly anything, therefore it's great for microadventures, backpacking and wherever you have a bit of a walk-in. However, I don't find sleeping on it very comfortable - it feels like sleeping on one of these old school pool air matrasses and I end up not sleeping well, waking up frequently and feeling stiff and sore the next day.

Multi leaks

First 3 or 4 uses were amazing. Really comfy mat and, when paired with a foam mat for insulation, was fine during winter in Scotland.

Sadly, after only a few uses it had sprung leaks at the corners of the vale where they overlap the mat material. I thought the repair kit provided hadn't fixed the issue so bought a good repair kit on here for a fiver which seemed to do the trick. It appears however that the mat has multiple small leaks at the seams separating the air tubes. I've fixed around 8 areas on the mat however it still doesn't stay inflated for an overnight sleep - let me down out in the highlands in a very cold October.

Really disappointed at the resilience of the mat which otherwise was a great, lightweight solution.

I am 5' 7'' and weigh an unimposing 11.5 stone - not a load I would expect to overly challenge the mat.


Hi Dougie,
We have contacted you directly as your sleeping mat would appear to be faulty and will be covered by our 3-year Alpine Bond.

You can do just about everything with [the MytiMug] - cook in it, eat out of it and drink from it. Now that is space saving!

Another suberb value offering from Alpkit... We used [the Numo] down to 0°C to great effect.

Andy McCandlish

For the money [the Hunka] really can't be beaten ... The small pack size and built-in stuff sack are a very welcome bonus.
