When good night’s sleep is your priority over weight, then the Comfort Plus XT Insulated Sleeping Mat from Sea to Summit is the luxurious air mat for you.
Side sleepers will benefit from this 8cm thick mat, and the R-value of 4.7 will help insulate on a chilly night. You’ll also have extra room to move around as this model is wider than standard air mats in the Sea to Summit range. The clever dual chamber design allows you to independently pressurise each layer, so you can adjust the top layer for your comfort, and maintain the base at high pressure for protection. Featuring Exkin Platinum®technology to reflect radiant heat, and THERMOLITE® insulation – this mat will help keep you warm in a cooler climate.
The 30/40D nylon fabric is lightweight, quiet and packable while also being easy to repair in the field with the included self-adhesive patches. To prevent mould growth, this mat has an Ultra-Fresh® anti-microbial treatment and to make inflation and deflation easy, it’s got a multi-function high flow rate valve.
The Comfort Plus XT Insulated Mat from Sea to Summit is the generously sized mat that’ll provide cushioned comfort when you’re sleeping under the stars.

Potentially but we haven't tried out this combo ourselves. I believe the swag space itself is 77cm wide, but the supplied mattress is only 45cm wide. Ultimately this is what allows the compact pack size, the swag folds narrower for rolling up - hence the 50cm wide packed size. In theory, because the Comfort Plus XT Insulated Sleeping Mat is an air mat it should fully deflate flat and could be folded and rolled up in the Ranger to maintain the intended pack size. Hope that helps!

Any significant difference with Comfort Plus Self Inflating Mat?1 answer
Both 8cm thick, both 64cm wide, similar R Value, nearly the same weight. What is the advantage of this one over S.I version, considering this is much more expensive?

This is a fully inflatable air mat, vs the comfort Plus SI which is a self-inflating foam mat. Which one you choose out of the two ultimately comes down to packed size and weight. Sea to Summits air cell mat range is targeted at lightweight adventurers who need to count the grams and have limited space. They of course can also be used for car camping, but their advantage is their compact pack size.

Etherlight xt womens or comfort plues xt?1 answer
For hiking, 100kg, cold sleeper. Ascent 2 sleeping bag. What one would best suit?
Laura - KARIONG(3 years ago)
The Comfort Plus XT Mats are a rectangular shape with a higher R-value and weight than the Ether Light XT Insulated Wmn's Sleeping Mat. Overall they're both comfortable mats, with good insulation value, and both should suit your needs.

Does this mat require a pump?1 answer
Just wondering if a air pump is needed to inflate the mat?
David - ROSEBUD(3 years ago)
You do need a pump, David, and the included stuff sack doubles as a pump to inflate this mat.
It has an attachment that goes on the valve, then you fill the may with air by gently blowing into it, seal the end and squeeze the air into the mat. Once you've done this 2-3 times, your mat will be inflated.

Difference between Comfort Plus XT Insulated Mat and Ether Light XT Reg/Wide 1 answer
G'day. I am looking for a mat with slightly greater width (and overall comfort) than the traditional S2S size, so I am taken by this product and the Esther XT Reg/Wide. Both come in at 183 x 64, as opposed to the common 55cm width. The only thing that I can see that this product offers over the Esther is an R-Value of 5, compared to the Esther 3.8, which is still adequate for shoulder seasons. The cost for difference of 1.2 R-Value appears to be 550g (or twice the weight of the Esther). Just checking if there is anything else I am missing in overall comfort that would make one choose this product over the Esther? It appears they are made from the same material, so any noise issues or otherwise will apply to both.. If I am missing anything, I'd love to know. I am prepared to sacrifice a bit of weight for greater comfort. Cheers

Great question - the new Ether Light Sleeping Mats are similar, but a little different to the other Sea to Summit airsprung mats. They actually have a different design with larger bumps and small internal baffles which leads to less fabric overall and therefore a lighter mat (these mats have a single layer). The Comfort Plus XT Insulated Mat has dual layer cells (a top air pocket and bottom air pocket) with much smaller bumps, so you end up with a slightly higher R-value, and a little more weight, but you have a backup layer if you accidentally puncture the mat. The new Ether Light mats are also arguably quieter than the other models due to the larger bumps and flatter overall surface. Both mats are a great option, but most of our staff here at very excited about the Ether Light and have recently bought them to see how they go!
