Kaira Arctic sleeping mat.

Kaira Arctic sleeping mat.

A simple, lightweight closed-cell kip mat, folding model. A three-season model fit for general use. Made in Finland!

Dimpled to create air pockets between the sleeper and the mat, this means reduced weight and better insulation.

  • Measurements opened 52 x 185 cm / 20.5" x 6' 1"
  • Measurements packed 52 x 17 x 14 cm / (20.5" x 6.5" x 5.5")
  • Thickness 1 cm / 0.4"
  • Weight only 265 grams / 9.5 oz.

Does the mat seem a bit short? Remember, you are probably using some sort of a pillow too. This pillow does not have to be on top of the sleeping mat.

Comes with simple elastic bands to keep the mat rolled. You can also use these for something else if the mat is just strapped on the rucksack.

Closed cell or air mattress?

Either of these is not better than the other, just better for you and the intended purpose. Here are key points to consider when choosing between an inflatable and closed-cell sleeping mat.

Closed cell

  • Absolutely reliable and care-free
  • Lightweight
  • Takes more packing space
  • Cheaper price

Air mattress

  • Packs very small
  • More comfortable
  • The same or usually better insulation-to-weight ratio
  • Possibility of punctures

If you're aiming at carrying light, sleeping tight and consider yourself careful, the air mattress is probably a better choice for you. If you're looking for indestructibility and it's OK to carry the mat outside the ruck and the packing space isn't an issue, the closed cell model should work just fine. Besides, you can use the mat as a sledge and it won't get destroyed.

Kevyempi ja fiksumpi kuin entinen ilmatäytteinen Haltin makuualustani. Puoli tähteä menee ulkonäöstä. Saisi myös olla myös sentin leveämpi.

Kahdella lyhyellä mettäreissulla nyt ollut mukana ja täytyy sanoa että ihan pätevä tekele. Pakkautuu kokoon noin 8 sekunnissa ja kulkee mukavasti repun sivuun tai alle köytettynä (periaatteessa kai noita taitoksia vois vähän avata ja tunkea vaikka repun selkämystä vasten jos on tilaa). Kämpällä kesäkuumalla testasin makuuominaisuuksia pitemmän päälle, kun pari viikkoa tuli nukuttua viileällä eteisen lattialla. Yllättävän pehmeä sentin paksuiseksi, ja kyljellään pystyi nukkumaan vallan mainiosti ilman mitään kolotuksia.

Aina tietysti muutaman sentin leveämpi sais olla, mutta mitäs tuosta.

Really tough and light. Can be used to sit on instead of the cold ground. Was warm enough down to -2 last time I tried! Recommend this if you want a simple, no-bullshit sleeping mat that is pretty much indestructible!

Use it in freezing conditions and a couple of degrees below zero is no problem. Easy to use and reliable, with a good price. I recommend it!

It's a foam pad. does what it says on the tin. basically no reflective quality to it, unlike the thermarest folding pad with the foil on it. comfy enough, keeps your back and butt dry, but not warm at all. Probably can find a better piece of kit for the price elsewhere.

Note! they mean it when they say it's a three season pad! my ass was COLD when using it in winter conditions. get a real pad for that! dont be stupid like me!

Asiallinen alusta jos käyttää tykkää käyttää pieniä makuualustoja nukkuessaan eikä vedä täysin glampingiksi. Iso plussa siitä ettei lähe samantien vetäytymään tehdasasetuksille keskelle telttaa vaan pysyy kun sen kerran laittaa.

I wonder why you keep saying that you don’t need a sleeping mat under your head? I usually use a sweater as pillow (inside a t-shirt), but that’s not nearly enough insulation from the cold ground. No mat = cold head! Sounds like ultralight nonsense to me.
