The Comfort Light™ Self Inflating Mat is an excellent lightweight, backpacking option that offers suberb comfort at a low weight and small packed size. The Delta Core™ technology removes 40% of bulk and weight from the 2" thick foam to keep your nights comfortable. The multi-function valve is a low profile, high volume valve that flips over to allow fast deflation without fighting re-inflation as you go. The Comfort Light Self-Inflating Mat is a real alternative to air mats for many backpackers and for campers who like to sleep comfortably.
Our blog post "Which Mat Should I Choose" has some helpful tips on picking the perfect self-inflating mat (or reasons why you might prefer an air mat).
Is the Comfort Light Self-Inflating Sleeping Mat...?
- Different from other lightweight self-inflating mats? Yes. The Delta Core technology reduces the weight and packed volume by 40% - and the Comfort Light is a full 2" thick (compared similarly-priced 1.5"-thick self-inflating mats.)
- Insulated well enough for three-season temperatures? Yes. The Comfort Light SI Mat has a tested R-Value of 3.1 - suitable for use from Spring to Fall.
- Small enough when packed to use for backpacking? Possibly. The packed size of 5.75"x10" (Regular) will fit into most conventional backpacker's 60+ Liter packs. Performance-oriented backpackers may prefer an air mat - see above.
Regular: 1 lb 5 oz ≈ Lighter than a carton of eggs
