Light and compact for easy packing, yet thick and warm enough to really make a difference on cold hard ground, an insulated inflatable mat is one of the best single purchases you can make if you value a decent night's sleep.
But they don't come cheap and there's a lot to be said for affordable alternatives that unfussily get on and do the job. For occasional backpackers, all-round car camping, or anyone on a budget, the Trekmates Air Lite could be all the camping mat you need.
