Sleeping Mat FAQs

  • Yes, sleeping mats are worth it and almost always necessary for overnight adventures. Here’s why: 


    Unless you like sleeping on the cold, hard ground, then you’ll need a supportive and comfortable sleeping mat (or an alternative, such as a camping hammock) for any camping trip. 


    Even in warmer weather, the ground can get surprisingly cold at night. A sleeping mat provides essential insulation, helping you stay warm and cosy. 


    A sleeping mat for camping plays a vital role in ensuring that you get the rest you need to perform at your best.

  • Well, we think our sleeping mat is the best, but cheeky self-promotion aside, the answer to this question actually requires a little more explanation. There is no such thing as the ‘best’ sleeping mat for camping. Instead, there is the best sleeping pad for your specific needs.

  • Here’s a quick overview of how to choose a good R-value for a sleeping pad: 

    R-Value 0.5 to 2.0 → Warm (down to 10º at night) 

    If you only go camping in warm, summery weather, then you don’t need to worry about having much insulation – an R-value of 0.5 to 2.0 will be plenty. 

    R-Value 2.0 to 3.5 → Cool (down to 5º at night) 

    A camping mat with an R-value of 2.5 to 3.5 can be used in summer without overheating, but it has enough insulation to keep you warm when the temperature drops in spring or autumn. 

    R-Value 3.5 to 5.0 → Cold (down to 0º at night)

    If you are camping in cold, wintery conditions, then you want a mat with a R-value of 4 or higher. 

    R-Value 5.0+ → Extreme (-3º or lower at night) 

    For camping in high-altitude or arctic environments, you need a specialised sleeping mat with an R-value of 5.0 or more.
