Camping is at its best when it’s wild, when it’s deep in the great outdoors when it’s well-earned – looking out over views that you’ve hiked hours for and on top of peaks you’ve had to battle to reach.
After all that hard work, when you reach your camping spot, whether you have indeed trekked miles or simply set up the tent a few kilometres into the hills to look back out on the view, the last thing you want is an uncomfortable set up to lie back on.
Camping is at its best, of course, when it’s comfortable.
That’s where a good sleeping mat is absolutely essential, and the standard of sleeping mats available at reasonable rates really has come on leaps and bounds over the last five or so years.
Take the Robens PrimaCore 60 sleeping mat, which inflates to provide amazing comfort when you go to lie down in the wild. It’s one of the best options on the market.
