Kaira XL-sleeping mat.

A simple, proper no-bullshit lightweight closed-cell kip mat, roll-up model. A three-season model fit for general use, with good size. Made in Finland!

  • Measurements opened: 60 x 195 cm (23.5" x 6' 5")
  • Measurements packed: 60 x 18 cm (23.5" x 7")
  • Thickness: 1 cm (0.5")
  • Weight only 390 grams (14 oz.)

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. The 60 cm width means these have a very welcome 10 cm more room to roll around during the night when compared to many other sleeping mats.

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 packaging space isn't an issue, the closed-cell model should work just fine. Besides, you can use the mat as a sled and it won't get destroyed.

Honestly, this sure beats the one issued by Estonian Defence Forces any day. Sure, you can't use it to transport your fallen comrades, but it's much better for camping purposes.

It's wet? No problem, wipe it with some napkins or towel and you are done! No need to air dry it for weeks and then deal with molding.

Lasts you a lifetime, especially since rubber bands are separate and you can use your backpacks molle webbing instead.

Edullinen, kestävä ja toimiva materiaali, tarpeeksi pituutta kaikkeen - täyttää makuualustan perustarpeet. Tämän saattoi ottaa huoleti suoraan käyttöön, ei haissut uutenakaan pahasti.

It's big and inexpensive. My arm fell asleep using it on a concrete floor but I haven't had any problems on softer surfaces like the earth. I'll probably upgrade it eventually but it's very solid for the price.

Very cushy and thick. Much more support than other foam pads i have tried. I would compare this to the legendary blue foam pads from wally-world but its better because the colour doesn't stick out in the woods like a U.N. "peace keeper"

Nii...joo... En tiä mitään niistä ilimalla täytettävistä, vaan niistä "vaahto-jotaki aineesta tehty". Tää on vähä parempi ku muutama aukileikattu pahavi laatikko su alla ku tulee välttämätön tarve sammua, pistää maata, istahtaa pitemmäksi aikaa, jne. Ei ole aivan täysin vedenkestävä/ vedenhylkivä, mutta paljo parempi kun ne pahavi laatikot, ja väri soveltuu maastoon paremmin. Eristää sua maasta hehkuvasta kylymästä joten kuten (kolome on parempi ku yks), mutta yksiki on parempi ku pahavi, ja o helepompi kuliettaa mukana ku o aika lähtiä. Mutta jos o leiriyty vaikka betoni lattialle kahen sorvin välii, lakase pois kaikki lastut, kivet, sora, mutterit, naulat, jne. su alta huolellisesti, ennen ku paat maata tään päälle, tai ne saattaa upottua tai jäädä kiinni niin ku Velkroon, tai kehittää reikiä kun muikertelet ja vaikeroit tään päällä; ja poista kaikki sähkö johot ja kuivettueet puun oksat, pikku tikut, jne. Jos makuupaikka on niin kapea ettei saa kunnolla levitettyä tätä pehmoketta aiva littiäksi su alle, tai jos joku juuri jää törröttään sopimattomaan kulumaan, ne aiheuttaa halakeemia jota ei voi koriata. Jos sul on tapa tonkia roskapönttöjen läpi (vaikka sähkömoottoreiden korjauspajan takana), saattaa joskus löytää isoja laattoja mustaa [vaahto-jotaki ainesta] jok on palio samallaista, mutta kaks kertaa paksumpaa, eikä maksa mitään. Se tavara eo oo kylläkään nii heleppoa rullata heleposti kulietettavaan kiekuraan, mutta...

Nice ensolite pad. I use it in my Deep Jungle Hennessy Hammock and found it formed better to my body than the stiffer army surplus pad I was using. As this pad is wider then many on the market it works better for hammock camping

Finally, a lightweight, closed cell, roll up sleeping pad for tall people. Good quality, at an incredible price (used, beat to hell, roll up military surplus sleeping pads in the USA cost more than these).

Decent cushion for a closed cell pad and for use on softer grounds like dirt, but best used in addition to another type of pad / inflatable mattress on harder ground. I like to use multiple layers of padding / insulation, as I can change it up for the environment and temperature, but it also seems to work better than one inflatable sleeping mat, which can be damaged and leave you SOL on a long camping trip.
