Lightweight and easy to carry, but larger in size. It may be designed to be thinner, or it can be folded in half to reduce the size.

Why spend more???

Excellent foam mattress!!! Used for over 3 weeks now on a long trek… insulated very well from the cold and comfortable once used to it (one night for me). Plus the icing on the cake, wider than the competition (only product found over 51cm), a price almost 3 times less expensive and above all the guarantee of not dying in the middle of the night... for the story of the bulk I consider this to be a false question in view of the many advantages that the product brings

Cheap, high r-value and slightly harder

Well, it does what it says

It's a great product, it delivers what it promises, the only problem is the volume is quite exaggerated, it becomes disproportionate even in large backpacks. I would recommend a smaller insulator combined with an inflatable one, it will be a little more expensive and greatly increase comfort and thermal insulation

Very light and easy to strap to a hiking backpack

Very good mattress for small budgets!

Very good mattress, light, comfortable, captures heat, anti-slip effect which prevents you from slipping on steep terrain A little big for transport but easily attaches to the elastic cords found on many hiking backpacks / treks

I don't use it as a hiking mattress, it being far too bulky and not very comfortable compared to an inflatable mattress. On the other hand, it is perfect to bring with you on small picnics, or in a camper/van to place on the ground. It is relatively durable, and for this type of use it is practical, its foldable shape making it easier to use and store.

What is the r-value?

The R-Value is a measure of the thermal insulation. It measures the ability of a mattress to retain or prevent heat from escaping from a warm body (human body) to a cold floor.The higher the R-Value, the better the insulation of the mattress.Please note that the R-Values can be added; this means that you can use two mattresses and add their R-Values.All our mattresses are tested to standard ASTM F3340-18.

What r-value for what use?

R-value from 0 to 1.9: Hot season (summer) onlyR-value from 2 to 3: 2 or 3-season (spring-summer-autumn)R-value from 3 to 4: 4-seasonR-value of 4.5 and higher: Use in all 4 seasons and in extreme conditions (glacier, far north and high altitudes)

Comfortable postural support

Sleep on aluminised side, facing the sleeping bag with foam side on the ground to minimise losses of body heat.For a foam mattress, this mattress offers a greater level of comfort thanks to its design and the depth given to the foam by the mould. This specific design allows for 2 cm mattress thickness, giving home comfort and real postural support.
