    Self inflating mattress for camping

    Im sick of cheap air beds lasting 5 mins and going flat during the night so thinking of spending a bit extra on a self inflating mattress. Not having to fart around with pumps would be a bonus and should keep the cook happy. Was thinking about one of these - OZtrail 10cm Self Inflating Leisure Mat - Double

    Has anybody got or used this or similar? Pros and Cons?

    We have a Freedom Camping/Zempire Twin bomber one that is very similar, Reasonably sturdy for camping. Bulky and heavy, but comfy. You may still need to inflate it more before putting your head down depending on how tight you like your mattress, We can get ours good with a bit of manual puffing. If you have it quite firm it is best to pull the bung during the day so it doesn't pop as it warms up.

    Some have no Thermal rating. Brought one for the wife last year (sorry cant remember what brand) and she was cold sleeping on it in summer even in a down bag.
