About this deal

For real additional comfort to the Ultim you need to be looking at a 15cm SIM such as the Outdoor Revolution Skyfall or similar. It may be lighter for you to carry two sleeping pads and a lightweight 3-season sleeping bag, rather than a heavy 4-season sleeping bag and a standard mat. KingCamp have pulled another top product out of the bag with their Deluxe double self-inflating mattress.

I like the trekology has a lot more thickness as I'm a side sleeper and very thin (or maybe I'm just ultralight). Couldn’t find an R-value anywhere, but guessing it’s somewhere around 2-3; This is a 3cm thick, 119cm long minimalist ultralight mat, after all.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! DURABLE - This self inflating air mat from Berghaus is built to last with a nylon ripstop durable fabric construction with TPU laminate which is tough, durable and rip-resistant. Superb Berghaus sleeping mat, very comfortable with a bit of extra puff and still packs up fairly small, it has a good quality feel about it and I expect it will last a long time. The packed size is only 69 x 20 x 20 cm which should be fine for a car boot or roofbox to transport. Even though they're only maybe 3cm thick, when your body weight is spread across the mattress, it still keeps you off the hard floor.

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. In use, the comfort is very good indeed, and provides just enough support for up to around 15 stone in weight. We really love Outdoor Revolution – they make great quality items at the mid-to-top end of the camping spectrum.In summary, we are impressed with the IForrest, but please don’t be expecting Shangri-La levels of comfort. Just make sure you bring along a decent sleeping bag or use electric hookup for an overnight heater. Definitely recommended if packing space is not an issue for you or if you need that extra 5cm of cushioning (anyone over 15 stone we would say), but it's easily the most expensive option on offer here. Surprisingly, even without adding extra air by blowing into the valve, it's firm enough to sleep on after five minutes auto-inflating!

It has vertical side walls to maximize the top-level surface area and this means that you don’t roll off in the night. inch thick) and I could always feel the ground pressing up against my hips as I tried to get to sleep on my side.One specification we’ve been unable to find out is the R-Factor and as a result we would recommend always using it on a camp bed base. Moving around on this mat is silent, unlike other brands I won’t mention that are like sleeping on top of a padded crisp packet. 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. Only slight negatives are the difficulty of packing it away - we couldn't get it back in the bag, but the comfort on offer more than outweighs this concern.

New: A brand-new, unused, unopened and undamaged item in original retail packaging (where packaging . The dual-valve system works well, and there is no screw-on end cap like most of the SIMs we’ve looked at. A definite option, and potentially worth seeking out the older Version 1 which is just as comfy but now much cheaper. Andes supply a couple of clip straps to help secure the SIM in its rolled-up state, but we did find that the shiny material on the top surface made it trickier to handle than some of the more expensive SIMs using flock or tactile materials. I’ve long been an admirer of Vango inflatable gear and the Comfort 10 follows on a familiar theme of reliability coupled with performance.Both camping mats and camping SIMs can also be used on top of a camp bed or ‘cot’ (as the Americans say) for more of a bed-like experience. Due to the thick materials used in the Comfort 10, insulation is excellent and it has a warmth rating (sadly not the same scale as R-Value) of 16.
