Love it - dont need to fully inflate it

This is a fantastic mat - it is comfortable, warm, and non-slip. It is slightly large and therefore awkward to pack but that's the price of buying a mat with a higher R value.

A good example of the non-slip detail - one weekend I was camping on a slight hill, my mat slid down the tent but I stayed on it while my friends had slipped straight off their other-brand mats.

Two points to consider before buying. First - inflating the mat is by hand. It's straightforward but can hurt your wrists if you have issues with them. Also, smaller hands mean more pumps... you alternatively could use a book or ask a friend to help.

Second, if you cannot sleep well on baffle-like structures, you won't like it especially when fully inflated. Persons with larger bottom/upper halves may also have an issue with it fully inflated. A way around this is to deflate the mat to what might be considered 6/7cm in thickness which gives enough room to mould into it. I also found this to be the most comfortable.
