Self Inflating Mats (19)
If comfort is at the top of your wish-list, our self-inflating mat (SIM) is a perfect option. We’ve designed the mat with a durable vinyl outer layer and a polyurethane (PU) foam interior. One of the advantages of PU foam is that is has open cells. When the mat is rolled up and the foam is compressed, air is squeezed out of the open cells and they close up. When the inflation valve is opened and the mat is laid out flat, it allows the cells to open up again. As the cells open up, they suck in air, which causes the foam to expand and the mat to automatically inflate. In other words, the mat does the hard work for you. Although SIMs are heavier to carry than other types of camping mat, most people find them softer and warmer to sleep on. We stock single and double SIMs in a variety of colours and thicknesses. Our 2.5cm to 3cm thick mats pack into a smaller size and are lighter to carry, whereas our 5cm to 10cm thick mats deliver the highest level of warmth and comfort.
