Because who likes to lie directly on the hard floor and then sleep comfortably? With the right sleeping pad, you can make many a night outdoors much more pleasant and ensure that you can really enjoy your vacation.

Which sleeping pad is the right one?

The market for mattresses is growing: While a few years ago you had to make do with the conventional mats made of a special foam, today there are many different models. Some of these differ fundamentally in their way, in their material and thus also in their area of ​​application.

In the following text, the different versions are to be briefly explained and notes on their respective use follow.

The conventional foam mat

Even if this type of sleeping pad has long been outdated for many outdoor experts, it still has its advantage for one person or use! Since this type of mat is made of a very robust material, it cannot be broken by wet or pointed objects. It is therefore ideal, for example, for sitting outside by the campfire without having to be careful that sparks get on the mat.

Inflatable sleeping pads

Inflatable mattresses are coming onto the market more and more. In contrast to the foam mats described above, they are much smaller to pack. Therefore, they are of course much better for trekking, cycling and the like than the large, bulky models made of foam. Some of the products have only a quarter of the pack volume and are usually much lighter.

When they are inflated, they are usually somewhat thicker and therefore they also offer a more comfortable and softer sleeping pad. So if you go on a longer tour, you will certainly be better served with such a modern product. However, you have to be a little more careful here in part: Moisture inside can lead to mold and, of course, holes can be cut into the material through very angular stones or even shards. However, if you take a little care to always air your mattress well and are a little careful where you lie down, such a mat is also very durable. If there should be a hole, the sleeping pads can of course also be patched up.

Another advantage besides

  • Comfort
  • Small packing volume
  • Light weight

is the insulating property: some of the new mats have special layers that keep cold from the floor. This means that when you sleep in nature you are kept warm much longer in the cold.

What should you pay attention to when buying?

Before buying, think about what you want to use the mat for and what properties you would like to have: Should it be well insulated, thick or better thin? What length do you need? If you already have a sleeping bag, it can also make sense to match the mat to it in terms of length and insulation!

Of course there are also special small mats for children. Nevertheless, you should consider whether these make sense when you sleep next to each other in the tent. Small mats often slip much more easily than large ones, which fill the entire area!
