They're not too bad compared to a fully inflating mattress but because there is some air in them they can get a little cool. I've used them down to about 0c lining them as per above and have been fine :)

Hi
Yep I have 2 x Roman ones with the inflatable pillows and 2 x Rays Outdoor Brand...Wild Country, all are King Single. The Wild Country ones win hands down, the Roman ones are cracking around the edges requiring loads of patching. The outer quality of the Wild Country are great as well, after a bit of wear and tear they look alot better than the Roman.

Well we ended up buying two blackwolf mats:

Went with these because they pack up a lot smaller than the 4x4 mats and have heat bonded seams, which a lot of other mats don't seem to have.

This weekend is the first trip with them so I'll report back next week!

I've used my Roman sleeping bag a few times now and it seems pretty good. I still don't like the zips, they're a no name brand zip, havent failed yet but look pretty dodgy.

I am amazed at how bad the quality of most name brand sleeping bag zips are. I got my daughter a $50 sleeping bag (no idea of the brand - would have to go find it) and it had one of those plastic thingies that prevents the material getting stuck in the zip. Another tech term... I have yet to find another sleeping bag that has one of those those and it's a constant annoyance for me that the zip of my sleeping bag gets stuck. (Espcially in the middle of the night when I've had to go out in the freezing cold because my bladder is having a beer party!)

Same here, i am surprised that the big names use no name zips? I would have assumed they would all have YKK zips?

Does anyone know if there is an issue with 4wd mattress getting wet. I mean do they dry quickly ? Are they ok on the car roof (with the supplied bag they come in) during rain storms ?

No problem with getting them wet Nigel, provided you dry them out completely before putting them away again....otherwise they will become mouldy.

And WELCOME to the forum.
