Ultralight hiking gear is usually expensive. That isn't the case with the Sea to Summit Ultralight Sleeping Mat. It is one of, if not the lightest sleeping mat on the market and one of the cheapest too.
This lightweight sleeping mat is dot weld constructed to create air-filled cells that function in a similar manner to pocket spring mattresses. Confidently do away with a pump and inflate the mat with your breath, the durable rip-stop fabric is extrusion TPU laminated and has an antimicrobial treatment to resist the growth of mould. Alternatively buy an Air Stream Pump Sack to make inflation a breeze... well, breath.
Are you a hiker, bicycle tourer, or climber that likes to carry a ridiculously small backpack? This is the spring/summer sleeping mat for you.
Fabulously light and compact, the comfort for a front & side sleeper is great but my sleep was disturbed by the squeaking/rustling!! Noisy enough to disturb everyone else's sleep as well, I was banished to furthest camp site. And no, no one got used to it even after 2.5 weeks. Will need to bring enough earplugs for everyone if use again.
This mat packs down to an insanely small size when deflated. It's easy to inflate with the STS Jet Stream Pump Sack. A 95kg male can comfortably lie on the mat without touching the ground.
The material is very noisy when moving around though.
This mat does exactly as promised: comfortable night's sleep with no compromise on weight or volume. We stored one inside the S2S Jetstream pump sack, which was perfect for blowing up the mats and pillows. We saved so much pack space by using these mats.
I found the mats a little squeaky, but I stopped caring after putting in ear plugs to block out snores. As a front/side/back/side flip-flop of a sleeper, the mat was very comfortable no matter how was I sleeping.
We took these mats over 30 days of stony campsites in the Sierra Nevada in California, followed by another ten nights in the Canadian Rockies. Very impressed with their comfort. And they were so light to carry.
A bit noisy when you move around on it, but if everyone in the tent has one, then probably will get used to it.
Amazed at how light it is and how small it packs down to!
Hope those welds all hold...
I'm a side-sleeper. A challenge that many lightweight hiking mats aren't up for. My hip didn't touch the ground once. On the first night with any foreign mattress I usually have a really achy back the next day. Not at all with the baby. It really is a deceptive little mat. It doesn't look like it will do much, but comfort-wise it is amazing. In a tiny, ultralight package too!
Hi would you be able to tell me how the sizes compare for the small and regular of the sea to summit ultralight sleeping mat, thanks
The small size is 168cm long and 55cm wide with a rolled diameter of 7cm x17cm whereas the regular is 183cm long and 55cm wide rolled to 7.5 diameter x 17cm.
Depending on your height, the extra 50grams of the regular will ensure you don't have cold feet!
I am thinking of purchasing this mat and am interested if it is self-inflating or not
