Thermarest: Making All The Difference
Posted by Nicki | April 18, 2012
Backpackers and campers have been depending on Thermarest for 40 years.
World leaders in sleeping systems and thermal insulation, Thermarest are renowned for the quality of their camping mattresses, thermal blankets, specialist camping bed linen and cushioned seating for those enjoying life in the great outdoors.
Their latest, innovative contributions to the outdoor market include the Compack Chair, which effortlessly turns a humble air bed into a sturdy, comfortable seat to relax in around the camp fire, and the NeoAir Jembe Seat Kit which transforms your sleeping pad into a high, backless stool.
Making All The Difference
Weighing either a little under or a little over 200 grams, the Compack Chair 20 and 25 are ultra lightweight kits which pack down small enough to fit into your rucksack without hardly noticing, and will make all the difference to your comfort at the end of the day’s journey, especially on fast-moving, long-distance treks.
Designed to fit any 20” or 25” wide Thermarest mattress respectively, they will transform it into a chair you can sink into – complete with upright back – in an instant.
Using a similar principle, the NeoAir Jembe Seat Kit transforms your sleeping pad into a high, backless stool.
Warmth in Extreme Conditions
Thermarest’s latest sleeping mattresses for 2012 include the compact NeoAir XTherm, guaranteed to achieve warmth in extreme conditions while packing down to the size of a one litre water bottle.
This is the most stable, non-self-inflating air mattress around, weighing just 420 grams yet with an incredible 5.7 R-Value rating for warmth and exceptional compressibility.
In a design which achieves thermal efficiency without the use of down or fibre insulation, the XTherm will keep you three times warmer than any other uninsulated air mattress on the market.
It joins old favourites the Prolite, Basecamp, Trail Pro and NeoAir Trekker which for years have been bringinging comfort to campers and backpackers all over the world.
