"Comfortable and packs small"

A lot of extra comfort, for not much extra weight or space in your backpack. Check out the review here:

"Aero 5.5 lightweight matress"

One of the few available light weight air mattresses in the country that is also reasonably priced. If you are willing to deal with the fiddliness of rolling it up properly each time it packs surprisingly small. Material feels fairly fragile but have yet to have a problem with it, also comes with a repair kit. As comfortable as most air mattresses and reasonably silent to sleep on in comparison to some. The issue I have had is compared to my other air mattresses in the same weight range there is no incorporated insulation or reflective material, and the mattress sleeps fairly cold. As a summer mattress when pack space is a priority this has been a top choice, would be a little more cautious in winter or if you struggle with cold weather as your mattresses thermal properties are of as much importance as your sleeping bag itself.

"First Ascent aero 5.5 lightweight mattress "

Definitely the most comfortable nights sleep had in the berg so far! Placed inside the sleeping bag and combined with thermal base layer, this was easily the warmest and most comfortable I have been in a cave. Great product!
