    Had a mountain equipment one and it was probably one of the best things that Ive ever bought. Thermarest are very good but expensive.

    Been using this all summer with no issues.
    Stays in my bed with my sleeping bag. I deflate it as I'm folding away my bed, just keep one valve open and kneel on the bed when folding.

    Very comfy but I've noticed not to over do it with too much air, but thats purely down to personal opinion.

    I use one of these on a compact, great bit of kit, stays on bed with bag and just have to remember to undo valve when folding bed.

    I bought the trakker one, which has been great. Just got back from a night on it and its much warmer and more comfy. Folds up fine inside the bedchair too

    Same as ^^^

    It has made a massive difference to my Wychwood compact as it jsut wasn't comfy enough. Been using it again for last few weeks with the trakker matress and I have slept like a baby.

    Are these things a ball breaker to blow up or let down? Can you really leave them on a Levelite type bed? They must move about as they appear to be small in relation to bedchair and bag size.
    Are you gonna bark all day little doggy, or are you gonna bite?

    Edna they are self inflating you just open the valve and to let down open the valve and roll it up like a newspaper, I've got a 3/4 length 1 and it's spot on

    I bought a thermarest in 95 whilst in Oz used it for 20 years on my bed chair stopped using it when I bought the rest bite. It was a god send in general totally loved it and essential during the winter.

    As said, self inflating. I have the trakker one permanently on the bed, and just open the valve once the bed is unfolded, then close it when inflated. I re-open the valve and pack the bed down, then close it to stop it being too bulky. I have one of the cyprinus levelite copies, and it fit on there with a sleeping bag and cover.

    Thermarest Trail Pro is one of the best around but is a bit more money at around 70. I have both a large version for full size bedchair and women's version for my JRC Stealth X-Lite bedchair. Both self inflate very easy, very comfortable, have a higher thermal rating than most and fold up in the bedchair easily.
