About this deal

Finally, it’s worth bearing in mind that you can add R-Values, so sleeping on two sleeping pads will maintain your heat better than one. Sierra Design’s shadow mountain mat props you over 7cm off the ground, which really helps with all-night comfort, especially if you often toss and turn, and at 410g is still compact enough to travel anywhere. Very comfortable when pumped up and similar to a normal mattress in regards to movement felt from the other person. Backpackers and wild campers will want a compact and lightweight mat (some compress as small as a water bottle and weigh under 400g). We needed something better than the smaller self inflating mattresses, but not an airbed ( too bouncy!

Inflation and deflation is nicely handled by the patented ‘Cyclone valve’ which sounds a bit gimmicky but works very well. The KingCamp Deluxe Double SIM comes in two great covers a delicious electric blue or a gorgeous grey/anthracite mix. The iceshield also stood on test for its great quality – the outer fabric is tough yet comfortable and the mat keeps its shape once inflated and feels like it’ll withstand years of sleeping under the stars. Used chiefly for backpacking tent trips but unlikely to be used at a campsite if you’ve brought the car and can transport something thicker.A lot of mats that offer reliable warmth and pillowy comfort end up being heavy and hard to care about, but that’s not the case in Roben’s new iceshield camp 35. Inflatable air mattresses which are essentially big air balloons which you sleep on have notoriously low R-values and are no good at all for sleeping on in winter or autumn.

If one of you wants to go camping on your own or with the kids then you don’t need to try and wrestle with the larger SIM. However, we had to pump the mat up at least 8 times in a 2 week camping trip which got very tedious. If you are planning to use it on top of a camp bed then this is an important consideration – you might be a foot off the floor! It is also available as a single mat for when space is at a premium, for example if you're overnighting in a car. In summary, we are impressed with the IForrest, but please don’t be expecting Shangri-La levels of comfort.The precision-cut foam aids packability, helping reduce the size of the mat when you’re transporting it between home and your tent. When inflated, there is a slight thickness increase in the head and neck region – this acts like a pillow – a nice touch. This bright yellow mat is very lightweight at 377g, packs down small and offers solid quality, night after night. With a sleeping mat under your sleeping bag, the ground will feel more even and create an additional layer of insulation between your body and the ground.

That extra 5cm of cushioning over a 10cm SIM makes all the difference, but we still think 10cm is suitable for most people. One good feature of the Ultim is that both the single and the double SIMs in the range come with clips which enable you to join up multiple SIMs into an enormous bed. The KingCamp is undoubtedly fabricated from decent materials – the two valves on the SIM are brass which is a nice touch and differentiates the Deluxe from other SIMs which rely on plastic.

It took a bit of puff for us to get this mat inflated, but the 9cm thickness combined with Thermolite insulation kept us warm and comfortable out on the trail, even in temperatures that hovered around freezing. The Berghaus Air 10 double SIM is a very comfortable double size bed which could suit people who are taller than average. The xlite comes in a range of sizes, with models available to suit taller, shorter and wider campers. With the right sleeping bag and a good quality camping mat, you can look forward to a comfortable and restful night. The wide design makes it one for side-sleepers but at 119cm in length, it’s suitable for shorter sleepers more than tall.

A sleeping bag is one of the most important features of your camping sleeping kit, so make sure yours is up to the job.I didn't give it the full five stars as the puncture repair kit turns out to be two small patches of material and no glue.
