At the price simply hike are charging for it, this mat is excellent value for money..........
I think this is a great mat, it`s stated R / tog value is very high for a self inflating mat of this light a weight, and at only 625grams, it`s very light indeed for a mat that contains insulating foam and not just your breath.
The size and shape is very practical, obviously, it`s much narrower than many other mats on the market, but that`s why I wanted it, and at 6.2 and almost 14 stone, I`ve found that it`s enough, and providing I`m on a level pitch, it will serve my needs quite adequately for fast and light wild camping trips, and, even for a person that was taller than me, it would still ok if they used a self-inflating pillow above the mat.
Even though it`s only 2.50 cm thick, although it obviously doesn`t offer super luxury bounciness, for it`s thickness, it is very comfortable, though I will put a thin silver bubble foam roll mat underneath it, to help protect the multi mat from potential sharp stones or thorns under the tent`s ground sheet.
Even though it`s only an inch thick, it`s rated as a four season mat, and that`s incredibly good for it`s size and weight; I have a similar mat that is half a cm thicker than this mat, but it`s only rated as a 3 season mat, as it only has an R-tog value of 2.5, compared to this multi-mat that has a 4.02 R-tog rating, which is brilliant for a mat of this thickness and weight.
I couldn`t be happier with my purchase, and for fast and light adventures, I would recommend this mat to anyone, but do make sure…
