Why We Chose The Nemo Tensor: Super comfy, clever design, convenient size
Nemo seem to have thought slightly out of the box with this sleeping mat and we reckon the move has paid off. This particular one is the biggest in their Tensor family which includes all kinds of shapes and sizes to suit different tents and different types of sleepers. At 675g (packed weight) it’s by no means heavy though, especially when you consider it’s designed for colder nights. There’s certainly a lot to like here..
Who Is The Nemo Tensor Long Wide Insulated For?
We can see this benefitting any backpackers or weekend wild campers who want something that’s lightweight but also warm enough to see them through some cold nights. The R-Value is 3.5, which would suggest it’ll be able to get you through all but the most extreme of winter nights in the UK.
This particular model, with its large and rectangular shape, will definitely suit side sleepers, and/or those who tend to move about in their sleep.
This has an interesting quilted construction, mixing both horizontal and vertical baffles (the horizontal ones being slightly more prominent) and this results in a very comfortable 3-inch platform that doesn’t collapse too much with any pressure at the sides.
