Buying Tips

To ensure that you choose the right camping mat for your needs, consider the following factors while you shop:

  • Weight: For long backpacking excursions when every ounce matters, look for a thin, narrow camping mat that will add comfort to your sleep without adding unnecessary weight to your gear. If you will not need to carry your mat over long distances, weight may not be as significant to you.
  • Insulation: Some camping mats are specifically designed to trap pockets of air near your body, helping to reduce heat loss overnight. If you will be camping in cold weather, look for a camping mat with insulating properties.

Expert Advice

  • You can reduce your weight by choosing camping mats in shorter lengths. Three-quarter length camping mats can provide a great deal of comfort while taking up less space in your pack and adding less weight to your gear.
  • Inflatable camping mats are another great way to avoid excess weight. Many of these camping mats are extremely lightweight and can be inflated with just a few breaths.
  • Larger camping mats, such as thick, queen-sized self-inflating mats, can serve as an extra bed for guests at home. When not needed, these beds can be easily rolled up or tucked away in a stuff sack.
