Double Pad

Price here changeable and I would say capricious. Sometimes the price difference is striking,. Quality average, but acceptable. Alexika EXPERT Life-mat, designed for long-term travel with a false route, such as climbing, hiking and any other adventure tourism. Designed for the off-season and winter. Sufficiently light and compact. Himself stresses the anatomical shape of rug back consists of a polyurethane foam with the shape in the form of rhombs.

The bottom is sealed over. It weighs 700g. Size – 180 50h2, 7 cm Folded – 18 62 cm It is within 2,000 rubles. Pros: – inexpensive – easy – holds and retains heat – enough Lightweight – compact Cons: – the valve fragile – the surface may be damaged as a result he will miss the air – the air slowly descends Opinion: alternative replacement pad – “Penke.” It is good in principle, but poorly withstand the load, especially if severe enough man. To wear no proof, however, it is not enough for several seasons. Learn more on the subject from Viacom. Weakest point – the valve. The cost is very reasonable. Alexika COMFORT PLUS Series plus comfort different in that they are made on the basis of orthopedic mattresses.

The thickness of the mat 10 cm, has a check valve for faster and more comfortable blowing. Carpet manufacture of polyurethane foam, the front side covered with velvet cloth, and the reverse a sealed and equipped with anti-slide coating.

It feels quite comfortable and cozy. True valves rather weak, especially one that is used for blowing, as it is completely plastic. This is the weakness of his. In general, it is not bad, but it would be kind of money for something better. And finally like to say that there is no single opinion on what kind of mat is better. Someone will tell you that the self-inflating mats are bad because they periodically go down, do not hold forms, their valves are not reliable and he will prefer such mats usual “scum.” Again, after all it depends on how a mat and a firm “met” this person. It is also almost any rug is calculated for certain categories (camping, to extreme sport) and season (autumn – winter, spring – summer). But our resourceful and restless Russian minds to find creative use for the same “foams”, using them as fanned to a fire that can not be done, with self-inflating mat for yourself. Whatever your choice, it depends on your portebnoste, tastes, preferences and character. I wish you really make your the right choice.
