Do you need a camping mat?

When pack­ing your camp­ing equip­ment, you should ensure a com­fort­able night’s rest. Of course, an indis­pens­able attribute is a sleep­ing bag that warms dur­ing sleep. But will it be com­fort­able to rest if you put the sleep­ing bag on the grass or the bot­tom of the tent? After such a dream, a per­son is pro­vid­ed with pain in the neck or back, which will neg­a­tive­ly affect the fur­ther pas­time in the cam­paign. There is a way out: to sup­ple­ment the equip­ment with a tourist rug.

A tourist rug (kare­mat) should be cho­sen, pay­ing atten­tion to the thick­ness (the larg­er, the more com­fort­able the rest), warmth (the val­ue can range from 1 to 8, most have an indi­ca­tor of 3–4) and the ratio of warmth to weight.

Tourist rug: main purpose, types

Many peo­ple around the world pre­fer to spend their leisure time in nature, regard­less of the time of year. How­ev­er, it is dif­fi­cult for a per­son to over­come long routes with­out rest. There is a cer­tain set of equip­ment that is dif­fi­cult to do with­out when hik­ing: a back­pack, a tent, a sleep­ing bag, a tourist rug (kare­mat). The lat­ter pro­tects against cold and mois­ture when sit­ting or dur­ing sleep, and also smoothes the relief, pro­vid­ing com­fort. Kare­mat is cov­ered under a sleep­ing bag, a tent, used for halts.

Trav­el mats come in dif­fer­ent types:

  • polyurethane foam — have good ther­mal insu­la­tion, are ver­sa­tile and have a low price, dif­fer in thick­ness (greater thick­ness pro­vides soft­ness and reli­able pro­tec­tion, but increas­es weight);
  • self-inflat­ing — have the struc­ture of a wash­cloth with a thick­ness of 2.5 to 10 cm, pro­tect well from cold and mois­ture, cor­rect small irreg­u­lar­i­ties, but quick­ly dete­ri­o­rate upon con­tact with sharp objects or sparks of fire;
  • inflat­able — a wide vari­ety in weight and con­tent (syn­thet­ics, fluff), they have proven them­selves well in hik­ing with strong tem­per­a­ture changes, includ­ing the win­ter sea­son.

How to choose a travel mat for a tent?

When choos­ing a kare­mat, many indi­ca­tors should be tak­en into account: the time of year, the type of hike (the area where the camp­ing is to be laid out), the size of the back­pack and tent, the type of sleep­ing bag, height, gen­der of the tourist. Accord­ing­ly, rugs dif­fer not only in appear­ance, but also in size, shape:

  • 119–130 cm — designed for a part of the body, an ide­al solu­tion for sup­port­ers of the min­i­mum load;
  • 183 cm — the most com­mon para­me­ters for aver­age height;
  • larg­er mod­els cor­re­spond to the W size (which indi­cates a large width) — ide­al for a tent or for camp­ing;

The shape of the rugs can be rec­tan­gu­lar and cocoon-shaped (the sec­ond option is suit­able for tents in the form of a trape­zoid).

How much does the travel mat weigh?

An expe­ri­enced tourist has var­i­ous tourist equip­ment in his arse­nal, includ­ing a rug, with­out which it is dif­fi­cult to imag­ine a good out­door recre­ation. How­ev­er, it can be dif­fi­cult for a begin­ner to fig­ure out which mat­tress is bet­ter to buy so that it is com­fort­able dur­ing sleep and not dif­fi­cult when mov­ing. To choose an irre­place­able attribute cor­rect­ly, you should fig­ure out how much the tourist rug weighs.

The weight of the kare­mat is cal­cu­lat­ed in a fold­ed state (it is in this ver­sion that tourists car­ry it) and depends on the type:

  • Izhevsk — 430 g;
  • inflat­able — 400‑4000 g;
  • self-inflat­ing — 600–900 g;
  • seat — 80–300 g.

Of course, the weight cat­e­go­ry is of great impor­tance when over­com­ing long dis­tances (less mass is more attrac­tive). How­ev­er, low weight may indi­cate poor strength, ther­mal con­duc­tiv­i­ty, or over­pric­ing. You may not feel dis­com­fort when mov­ing, but it’s hard to endure sleep or, con­verse­ly, rest com­fort­ably at night, but trav­el dis­tances with a big bur­den. In any case, it is nec­es­sary to choose, tak­ing into account pri­or­i­ty fac­tors.

How to fold a travel mat?

Com­fort should always be: dur­ing sleep, when mov­ing, stop­ping for a halt. That is why it is impor­tant to pack the back­pack cor­rect­ly so that all the nec­es­sary things fit. The trav­el mat can be fold­ed in dif­fer­ent ways:

  • out­side — does not occu­py the inner place of the back­pack, does not require open­ing in case of halts. Cons — fre­quent loss­es, a kink at the place of twist­ing, dif­fi­cul­ties in fold­ing in the win­ter sea­son;
  • deployed inside — takes up space, strength­en­ing the walls of the tourist bag. Dis­ad­van­tages — incon­ve­nience if you need to con­stant­ly get on halts;
  • twist­ed inside — elim­i­nates loss­es dur­ing a tourist hol­i­day, but takes up a lot of space if the back­pack is small;
  • accor­dion — even­ly dis­trib­utes the load, it is con­ve­nient to lay out when sit­ting. Dis­ad­van­tages — takes up a lot of space inside;
  • below out­side — does not take up inter­nal space, pro­tects the bag from con­t­a­m­i­na­tion, but not all back­packs have sim­i­lar fas­ten­ing loops;
  • on the facade out­side — they are used with a wide tourist back­pack, this arrange­ment neg­a­tive­ly affects the back (the cen­ter of grav­i­ty shifts).

Each tourist choos­es inde­pen­dent­ly the opti­mal place­ment of the rug, because for a great hol­i­day, the main thing is con­ve­nience and com­fort.

Large selection of travel mats in the Adventure online store

The Adven­ture online store offers a huge selec­tion of trav­el prod­ucts, includ­ing trav­el mats. A wide vari­ety allows you to choose equip­ment for a com­fort­able stay, accord­ing to any pref­er­ences: pil­lows, seats, foam, mat­tress, inflat­able and self-inflat­ing mat, kare­mat, etc. Afford­able price, excel­lent qual­i­ty are the main advan­tages of a reli­able online store in Ukraine. The cat­a­log of the Adven­ture online store con­tains a huge vari­ety of tourist rugs that dif­fer in type, size, weight, thick­ness. When choos­ing, one should take into account such fac­tors as the time of year, the dura­tion of the rest, the area, the dimen­sions of the tourist.

For a short rest, a kare­mat-foam is per­fect, which has a low weight and excel­lent ther­mal con­duc­tiv­i­ty. A more com­fort­able sleep will be pro­vid­ed by self-inflat­ing mat­tress­es, besides, the tourist will not feel dis­com­fort with small sur­face irreg­u­lar­i­ties. Going on vaca­tion in the win­ter, you can take two options for kare­mats: foam and self-inflat­ing. Such a “burg­er” will reli­ably warm in any sit­u­a­tion. Of course, it is impor­tant when choos­ing to take into account the rec­om­mend­ed tem­per­a­ture regime indi­cat­ed on the prod­uct. Also, small-sized pil­lows and seats can pro­vide con­ve­nience.

Com­fort is the main indi­ca­tor of a suc­cess­ful hol­i­day. When choos­ing a mat, pay atten­tion to the type, dimen­sions and weight, which many reli­able man­u­fac­tur­ers try to min­i­mize as much as pos­si­ble for com­fort in any con­di­tions. Adven­ture store man­agers will always help with rec­om­men­da­tions so that your active hol­i­day brings only pos­i­tive emo­tions!
