I have to admit that I have been at it again…..
I took all my non inflatable sleeping pads and did a critical assessment of their various merits including weight, warmth, packability, robustness and size. I happen to like non-inflatable pads, partly because I sleep warm and also easily on hard surfaces and partly due to their cheapness and non-puncturability (if thats a word?). The pads that I currently use at various time in the year and have been included in the assessment are as follows:
- OMM duo mat
- Laminate floor underlay
- Gossamer Gear Thinlight pad
- Gossamer Gear Torso pad
- Radiator reflective insulation material
Some of the assessments are my own opinion and some are pure measurements which cant lie. When I have worked out a way to put these into a presentable format I will do a separate post. Needless to say the assessments threw up some interesting results….
