On a cold night in your tent, you'll thank yourself for adding an extra layer of insulation to your sleeping set up with the Giga Earth Mat from Oztrail.
This mat is made from 20mm thick closed cell foam, which makes it great for layering under another mat when camping, but it can also be used for gym, yoga, or sports.
A tad bulky. Had to rejig my pack to get it in. Edges break away too easily. Base is already starting to come away from padding. Having said that, it is comfy (under a self inflating mattress) and light
Found this product very hard and uncomfortable to sleep on, would prefer an air mattress
I'm sorry to hear that you've had an uncomfy sleep on your new mat.
The Giga Earth Mats are terrific when used under another mat for insulation (& extra comfort), to keep you warm in cooler conditions. Unfortunately, they're not as comfy as most mats on their own, but they're definitely a handy piece of gear.
If you're interested in doubling up, I'd recommend the EPE Sim Camper F35 - both mats together would make a very comfy nights sleep. Laine :)
Great product for school kids to us on school camping trips. Great value for money.
Used this on top of a camp stretcher. Makes it very comfy.
Were very comfortable on our Oztent Goanna stretchers and want something purely for insulation. This is a cheap option, but the packed dimensions still seem the size of an air mattress, which we want to avoid. Is there a pure insulation option out there that folds up really small?
I'm afraid that we don't have anything thinner in our range that matches what you've described. There are higher end versions of this mat on the market, but they will all essentially do the same thing and won't pack up that much smaller.
There is always the option of an ultralight self-inflating mat which is designed to pack up very compactly, but I'm not sure if that's what you had in mind to use on top of your Goanna Stretcher.
Sorry, we couldn't be of more help, Alan.
Has this product got an r-value that rates its insulation efficiency?
Oztrail haven't had the Giga Earth Mat rated for it's R-Value. Sorry.
Intend to use on top of air matress for extra warmth. Need a double. Thanks
Unfortunately, the Oztrail Giga Earth Mat only comes in a single width of 65cm. I'm not aware of any closed cell foam mats being made to a double width. If you'd like to use these on a double mattress, my suggestion would be to buy two and place them side by side.
IANO m t sure which side is up and which down??
It probably doesn't matter either way, but I would use it the green side of the Giga mat up with the black side facing down.
We are needing a few robust hiking sleeping mats for our clients.
The details section on this product states external dimension width is 50cm. I've seen this product in person and it's definitely wider than 50cm and more like the 65cm you've quoted in this answer, might be an idea to update the specs listed for those that might not read the Q&A section?
Getting my hands on one of these to double check was harder than it should have been, but you're spot on, it is 65cm wide. I'll get that changed on the website. Thanks for the heads up!
