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
  • Measurements packed 52 x 17 x 14 cm
  • Thickness 1 cm
  • Weight only 265 grams

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.
