Featuring a dual layer zoned construction, the Sea To Summit Comfort Light Insulated Sleeping Mat not only looks awesome, it introduces a new benchmark for comfort and warmth in lightweight trekking and hiking mats.
Air filled cells function in a similar manner to a pocket spring mattress with single layer cells in the head and feet areas and dual layers in the torso to create a mat with an outstanding balance between comfort and weight.
Thermolite® fill and silver coated Exkin® Platinum fabric insulate and reflect heat back to your core which when combined with the comfort of body conforming air cells can often lead to impatience amongst your trekking party and abandonment of those sleeping-in every morning.
A fabulous mat! It is lightweight and compact. Loved the fact I could sleep on my side. Only downside is that it's quite noisy when you move around.
one of the most comfortable sleeping mats I have slept on! plus it is ultra light for that comfort, so rate it as the best sleeping mat for hiking and camping yet made.
I just used this mat for the first time over a few nights in Freycinet National Park here in Tassie. I'm not sure how cold it was overnight (Freycinet is pretty mild in winter) but I was certainly warm and comfortable. I missed the width of my old Exped mat (I had a "wide") but there's always the trade-off between comfort and weight. It is a little bit noisy but could be worse. I LOVE how easy it is to get back into its little sack - I can't stand gear that's almost impossible to pack away. That factor and it's packed size alone make it a winner for me.
I really wanted to give myself the best chance of a good nights sleep while out on the trail. This mat lived up to my high expectations. It is light and small to carry, it is easy and quick to pump up with the little stuff sack pump (purchased separately). I felt really comfortable and it was warm. There is a bit of a rustling noise when you move, but with my daughter & I both sleeping on one each next to each other, any noise it made did not keep me up.
Thanks for your review Deanna. There has been much talk about the noise made by Sea To Summit mats. Those who work at Snowys who own them have, much like yourself, not found noise to be an issue, particularly at the end of a day of adventure. Thanks for the feedback. ~ Ben.
The best sleep ever on my new mat, I'm a side sleeper and used to get severe hip pain when using my old mat, I am warmer now off the ground and I don't wake up stiff from the pain and cold!!! Easy to inflate without pump!!
I've only used this once but it was great. Easy to inflate without a pump, easy to deflate, super comfy, and provides good insulation from the cold ground. Would definitely recommend.
Used this mat several times now in the high country. Weight and pack size is great for overnight hikes. Has to be the best mat I used, definitely feels warmer using this mat. When I was choosing a new mat I read comments about the mat being possibly noisy when rolling over which made me slightly nervous. I have to say I haven’t found that to be a problem. Use the jet stream pump sack makes it easy to inflate, also fits nicely into the top of the stuff sack.
We bought two of these (one each) and they are the best mats we've ever slept on! Very compact in pack and light weight. Takes not time to blow up or deflate and they're easy to pack away (no struggling to get back into bag). Highly recommend :-)
Great sleeping matt, bit noisy when you roll over, nice and warm. recommend for Victorian region.
Have slept many nights on this mat now. I chose to buy the large and it's positively luxurious. I can wrap my arm around my head and my pillow without anything touching the cold ground. Snug as a bug in -1 deg c. Really easy to inflate, deflate and roll up. Super comfy sleep - including for side sleeping.
To keep weight and packing sizes down I was thinking of just using the pump sac but I'mm not sure if the large size will fit into the jet stream.
This is a good question Stewart, and not one that seems to have been addressed anywhere previously.
Just looking at the packed products alongside the Jetstream Pumpsack, the mats that would appear to fit comfortably are the non-insulated Comfort Light and the Ultralight range of mats in all sizes. The XS Ultralight insulated may fit at a squeeze, but any the other mats, particularly the insulated models will probably be a hassle to squeeze into this pumpsack. I hope this is useful.
will the small at 168cm be OK or should I opt for the regular size mat?
For your height, it looks like the small is going to be the better fit. You could go for the regular size if you prefer a more spacious mat - it's really up to you as to what you'd be most comfortable with, and if you don't mind carrying the extra little bit of weight and volume.
I am 161cm tall. I was thinking about the regular for extra comfort, but just want to check. Thanks
The length of the Comfort Light Insulated Small Mat is 168cm making it a perfect fit for you. In comparing the small and regular sizes, there is no difference in thickness, so there is unlikely to be any difference in comfort.

Most hikers try to save on as much weight and space as possible, but I would probably recommend going for the small size which is 168cm, that way your feet won’t dangle over the edge of the mat and leave you cold.
how do you chose a size for this brand? I'm 173cm tale.....
On the product page where it says 'Choose from 3 sizes', select the arrow drop down, and you'll be able to choose from small, regular or large.
As you're 173cm tall I would choose from the regular size (184cm long) and the large (201cm long) depending on what length you would prefer.
