BW folding sleeping mat, surplus
A great example of German design. This foldable mat also acts as a frame in the Jägerrucksack and the larger infantry ruck.
Only a German mind could come up with something like this. A foldable sleeping mat that makes sleeping on the cold ground more comfortable, and when it's time to move out, folds into a nice package and slips in the ruck.
The dimensions of the mat are 55 x 190 cm (folded 27,5 x 38 x 3,5 cm).
Genuine German surplus
Used but in serviceable condition. These might have some markings from the previous users and little wear here and there, but they're good to go.
Staff reviews of BW folding sleeping mat
This has been an excellent compromise for when I haven't been so keen to take a rollable sleeping mat along, but some kind of padding would have been nice. Yeah, this is probably not the thickest of them all, but it fits into such a small space that I can forgive it. Absolutely the best choice for the summer months. During the winter months, I would recommend a thicker option, or you could just shove some extra insulation underneath.
This makes the rucksack a lot tidier and compact. Maybe this isn't so important for those of you using more modern technology, but for those of us hauling around equipment from the beginning of time (depending on the individual's taste of course), this is a great way to get around the carrying capacity limitations and still have something soft under you when you need a nap. If you own any frameless or padless ruck, I highly recommend that you get familiar with this sleeping mat!

Vaatii tietynlaista luonnetta.

Very well, the extra volume around my foam sleeping mats was filled with bubble wrap. They pretty much bubble wraped ensolite foam!
Succesfully. The pads arrived uncracked, unshattered, not the least bit broken. Image what they'd do for glass!
Shipping time to the Seattle area just before Christmas was about 4 weeks.

- hieman paksumpi saisi olla tietty eräilyssä, mutta ajaa hyvin asiansa istuin-alusena, repun pehmikkeenä yms.

To my surprise, my pad came in pretty much "brand spanking new" condition.
I can definitely see using this pad to stiffen up my BW mountain ruck. It'll also keep my butt dry and comfy as a seat pad. And this pad will be super-duper-ultralight cool as a shooting mat while I play Tom Berenger in Sniper at my range to keep my tacti-cool camo under armor panties and go fast team issue tank top nice, clean and looking fresh. It's scientifically proven that looking crazy cool makes your bullets shoot faster and straighter! It's just science!!!
Buuuuuutttt....I'm not so sold on the idea of it being a sleeping mat, at least for me. It's too thin for my liking but, I'm also not a Navy Seal, Delta, Ranger, death dealing uber commando that chews nails and spits rust or Chuck Norris.
Basically, I'd get another one for sure if this one gets torn to pieces by a BearShark or YetiSquid. Which we happen to have a infestation of in the states...especially in New Jersey...

Besides the shipping took just 6 days from Finland to Chile!

Great for hiking and outings or as a shooting mat for the range.
For sleeping, why not put more padding on the ground under the mat if you find it to be too thin.
If you're out for all the comfort, get a hotelroom instead ;-)

I use it as a sitting pad and pack stiffener for the BW mountain ruck, and it works perfectly for that. Even if you don't want to sleep on it, there are dozens of possible uses for it, and would recommend purchasing one.
