A great all-rounder, the Explore Planet Earth Standard SimF35 mat is an ideal choice for adventurers looking for a sleeping mattress to cross obetween hiking and general camping, and want it at a value for money price.
Made with a durable 75D polyester exterior, quality brass valve and a compressible open cell foam interior, the EPE F35 mat is lightweight, durable, and inflates quickly and easily without the need for noisy air pumps.
At 3.5 cm thick, the F35 has a compact packed size suitable for hiking, and provides plenty of sleeping comfort for general camping use. Anti-slip dots on the base help keep your mat in place overnight and it comes complete with stuff sack and compression straps.
Do you reckon this would be a fab mat for the kids? You can still clip them together at this size? We have 3 kids 5yrs, 7yrs and 9yrs and they will be sleeping in sleeping bags so thinking a" raft" of 3 of these could be a great bedroom set up for them. Still wondering what would be best for us - the twin bomberpad or the F100's
I’ve just confirmed by checking our display model, and the Sim Camper F35 doesn’t have press studs along the sides for joining mats together. However, the Sim Camper F60 (which is the middle size) and F100 do have studs so you will definitely be able to join those to make a raft.
The Zempire Twin Bomberpad is probably too small for three kids as it’s only a double size, but the single may be a good option as it is a bit wider than the Sim Campers. From feeling both brands in store, they both seem to be very similar in comfort.
I think that if you really want to join your mats, the F60, or F100 are great options and you can use them separately as your kids get older. But if that’s not essential you could go for the Bomberpad and save a bit of money - either one is a solid choice.
I've been reading up and binder mats apparently are more sturdy and can be thinner but you don't hit the ground. I saw this bonded?
I've just checked with the display model, and I can confirm that the EPE Sim Camper F35 Self Inflating Mat is definitely bonded.
You're right about these style of mats - bonded mats will distribute your weight better so you are less likely to touch the ground when you're sleeping on it.
If you are needing something smaller/lighter the 35 is a good option as it is on the thinner side at 3.5cm, but if you're after a more luxurious mat, the Sim Camper F100 is a step up as it is 10cm thick.
