Multimat Adventure Superlite 38 - self-inflating full length mattress. The lightest 38mm full length self-inflating mat in the range - uses quality materials to keep weight to a minimum.
Self-inflating mats are the most popular choice for backpackers because they provide a good level of comfort and insulation from the ground, in addition they are relatively light and compact when deflated and rolled.
The two superlite mats in the Multimat Adventure range use a slightly lighter weight face material than the others in the range which is how weight is saved - though they are still a robust unit. And for 2011 Multimat have changed the shape to eliminate wasted material at the corners of their mats - saving weight compared with previous models.
This mat is just over a centimetre thicker than it's original counterpart. Extra comfort and a greater tog rating, for not much weight penalty.

From 2020, there is a new industry standard for measuring the R-value (level of insulation) of sleeping mats – ASTM F3340-18. This new standard is the sleeping mat equivalent to the EN rating for sleeping bags.
You can now directly compare the R-value of mats rated using the ASTM F3340-18 with confidence that is a fair and accurate comparison between mats. In simple terms, the higher the R-value, the warmer the mat.
In general terms, an R-value below 2.0 is for summer use, 2.0 to 4.0 is for cooler 3 season use and 4.0+ is for winter temperatures. This will be also be dependent on your sleeping bag, how cold you sleep etc. Please contact our customer service team if you need advice on choosing the right mat for your activity.
