How can I find the right mat?
The different mats are not only designed for comfort, they prevent heat from being lost from the body to the ground and provide insulation against the cold. When buying a mat, you need to decide how much comfort you feel is important, how much space you have in your backpack, whether weight is important and what temperatures you are expecting during your tour.
Mammut offers two different types of high-quality and functional mats to provide the optimal response to each individual's circumstances and needs.
Our super light foam (PE foam material) iso mats set a new benchmark for weight. Our foam material is three to four times lighter than conventional EVA foam. Iso mats are not compressible, but are also not susceptible to defects.
When the valve is opened, these mats automatically fill with air up to a certain point. The thickness and hardness can be regulated by additional manual inflation, ensuring optimal adjustment to the body. They provide excellent insulation, are water resistant and easily stowed away. However, the more comfortable the mat, the higher the packing volume and weight. They are more sensitive than foam mats, however any holes can be repaired quickly and easily on the spot.
Mats with integrated air pump
These lightweight and stowable mats are extremely comfortable. The hand pump integrated in the cushion allows them to be inflated quickly and easily. They offer maximum insulation and comfort and are water-resistant.
