Having tried our first camping trip a few weeks ago with airbeds which went down overnight we decided to give these self inflating mats a try.
They arrived within just a few days of ordering. They are rolled up into their own little bags and my two girls aged 2 and 4 years, were very excited to give them a go.
These mats are a great alternative to air beds, you simply roll them out, open the valve to let them self inflate (we blew some more air in to make them a bit firmer), then they are ready to go. The girls had a good night sleep on them and on one of the nights when my little one wouldnt sleep (so we all moved beds), I slept on it and although not recommended it wasnt the worst nights sleep I have had.
Having camped just twice now (for a week the first time and two nights the second) I am realising that unless you actually take your bed with you then comfort is not the top priority, however these mats keep your little ones off the hard ground and dont get too cold so they are a good alternative to air beds which just seem to go down and can get quite cold.
