- Thermarest or what?
Thermarest. Still using the thermarest UltraLite I’ve had since the early 90’s. Still as comfortable just doesn’t self inflate as quick as it used to. Wife had an UltraLite which delaminated after 5 years. Replaced with a brand new ProLite no quibbles. I’ve used mine on snow, ice and been warm enough but some people may prefer the thicker one. ProLite packs down even smaller than the UltraLite. The TraiLite used to be the next thickness up and wasn’t that much bigger than the UltraLite when packed. Think the model names have probably changed since the model names I’ve used.
Thermarest are expensive but IMO worth it.Posted 4 years agogsm7Member
Alpkit airo seems to be quite good. Used on numerous bivvy trips in the uk and took it for a week of winter camping in Iceland. Kept me insulated and was relatively comfortable considering it’s size and weight. Still going strong and it was cheap.
I must say though, my friend has a thermarest neo air which I borrowed for a bivvy recently. Incredible!!! Far superior to any mat I have tried. But expensive…Posted 4 years ago
