suitable for stretcher tent?1 answer
Hi there, Is it ok to use this mat in a stretcher tent – primarily to block colder temps from the floor of the stretcher, or should this mat only be used laying flat, like on a regular tent floor? Thanks.

You can absolutely use this mat within a stretcher tent. It is a tapered mat, as it's designed to be light enough to carry (eg. hiking situations) so a rectangular shape would be a better fit on the stretcher bed section. Something like the Camp Plus in the regular wide rectangle might be worth looking at. Its abit thicker and will give you better insulation, but is a similar price. Just triple-check the dimensions of the mat against the dimensions of your stretcher.

suitable for multi day hiking? Ease of packing?1 answer
my teenage daughter needs a sleeping mat for a month long hike/ trek. I am nervous that an air filled insulated sleeping mat might puncture so wonder if this SI mat would be a better option. What is your opinion? Also how hard is this to pack away. My daughter has to be able to pack it up every day my herself and I have heard they are difficult to pack. Would a bigger bag help?

A self-inflating mattress still requires air inflation to be functional, so a puncture can affect these as well. Regardless of what mat you chose its best practice to have a patch repair kit with you so any issues can be sorted. This mat is design for light weight adventures, like hiking, etc so there isnt a question of suitability there. I personally prefer the air filled mats as I like to carry lightweight, small gear wherever possible, but I also like a thicker mattress. That would be my main concern on a month-long trip, because ultimately space and weight in your pack is a bigger deal than a few nights where you could get away with not fitting something in. In terms of pack up, I'm assuming your daughter is a teenager/young adult, and not a small child? In that case, there's no reason why she wouldn't be able to pack the mattress up herself. The air-filled is obviously the quicker and easier option, as it's not filled with a slab of foam, but the Self Inflating isn't an issue to pack up at all, and there would be no need for a bigger bag.
If it was me personally, knowing what things I prioritise, I would go with the air-filled version. I have had a Sea to Summit air-filled mat for a few years now and not had any punctures. A large group of the team here at Snowys has these style mats, one woman has had hers for nearly 7 years with no issues.
Ultimately Im sure she'll be happy with whichever one you go with, but I do believe the benefits of the air-filled outweigh any potential negatives.
You tube can be an excellent resource for reviews and feedback videos if you want so more real life info! This one in particular gives you a good run-through. https://youtu.be/eTPxcwRYqS4

how does it compare to s2s comfort plus insulated1 answer
Hi, could you please provide some advice about the pros/cons of this compared to the sea to summit insulated mat? I'm looking for a hiking mat, but am prepared to carry a little extra weight to ensure comfort, and am also nervous about losing all insulation in the event of a puncture, therefore both these mats look good (the air one has dual layer, this one has the foam). I'm also looking at my daughter borrowing it for a 9 day hike and so durability is important too. How does the comfort level compare? any other advice? I am also vaguely looking at the new ether light xt, but that's probably getting a bit pricey. Very comfy though! I also wonder about that kind of design having no redundancy in the event of failure while out in the stick - which could lead to very cold, uncomfortable nights.

Both the Comfort Light and the Comfort Plus are terrific mats and for hiking, you can't go wrong with Sea to Summit! If you and your daughter don't mind the slight weight difference and packed diametre on the Comfort Plus, then the extra 3cm mat thickness and added insulation could make the decision. Here's a great blog post from Paul, which will hopefully offer a bit more insight and don't hesitate to give our Customer Support team a buzz on 1300 914 007. Hope that helps, cheers :)

Can you double check the weight? 1 answer
Sea2Summit lists it at 545g for the regular, and 775g for the large.
Bebs - Holland Park(5 years ago)
Thanks for getting in touch, I can see that Sea to Summit have the incorrect weight listed on their website. In their catalogue they list the Regular as 665g, this is also listed on the packaging. We've actually physically weighed the mat in its stuff sack and weighs 732g. All of our specifications that have an orange tick next to them mean we've physically measure and weighed them.
