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
  • Measurements packed 60 x 18 cm
  • Thickness 1 cm
  • Weight only 390 grams

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.

Manufacturer

Made by Plast-Team Ltd., which is a Finnish company specialized in foam plastic products. All of their stuff is made in Finland from CFC-free plastics.

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.
