Which hiking mat would be right for me?
Well, that is a matter of personal preference really, and the hiking mat that you choose will depend on the conditions where you intend to camp. If you are not quite sure which of our hiking mats would be right for you, then check out our handy guide below for the various options that we have available.
Air Pads: Air pads are both comfortable and lightweight, and they either come equipped with an air pump, or you can blow them up yourself quickly. Our air pads are designed with varying levels of insulations, and you can customise how hard or soft you want your sleeping surface to be.
Self-inflating pads: Our self-inflating pads are an excellent option for hiking and backpacking in the outdoors, and will inflate on their own just by opening the valve. They offer superior insulation and are made with stronger fabrics that are durable and robust.
Closed-cell Foam Pads: These are standard hiking mats, and they can easily be rolled up and transported wherever you wish to go. They are lightweight, and comfortable, offering decent insulation. However, they are not quite as comfortable as the other options and may be more suited to shorter trips.
What else is included in this range?
This range also includes a selection of hiking mat accessories to ensure that you get the most out of your product. A coupler kit is a perfect option to keep two hiking mats together, and it is ideal for a couple or anyone who is looking for a wider sleeping space. We also have fitted mat sheets to protect your mat, provide a more comfortable sleeping space, and these are easy to wash when you get home. Some of our hiking mats also come with a repair kit so that you can repair punctures in the field, which can definitely be useful!
Do you have any tips for choosing a hiking mat?
A decent hiking mat can make all the difference, and their purpose is two-fold- cushioning and insulation. It will help to keep you both warm and comfortable wherever you. There are a few matters that must be considered, mainly the likely temperatures that you are going to face, how you intend to transport the mat and how much comfort you are likely to need. Insulation is critical to ensuring a good night’s sleep, and survivalists often say that having a mat on the ground to keep your body heat retained is key to maintaining a comfortable temperature. Check to see if the hiking mat that you desire has the right temperature range to figure out how much insulation that it is likely to provide. The size and weight of the mat are also significant, particularly with regard to transporting it and for overall comfort. If you are backpacking, it might be better to choose a lightweight option, whereas, if you are camping you may prefer to select one of our heavier options to ensure comfortability.
