Thermarest sleeping mat upgrade!

I bought a new Thermarest LuxuryMap regular size sleeping mat. Have been using two 25mm mats for some time but the first mat I bought 25 years ago has given up the ghost! The second one is a decade old but still perfectly ok. A slow leak & the foam has started to delaminate from the skin.

I would have liked a larger size but it has to be the regular so it fits in the car & hiking tent. The other half has a 35mm mat & will use the 25mm as well, so 60mm total thickness. Putting them side by side, even though the LuxuryMap is 75mm thick, it has a much better comfort level than the 35mm & 25mm combined. It really has a nice feel. Not quite as bulky as I was expecting. Remember not to blow them up too hard!

Found it here for a good price, freight was a bit dear but still cheaper than typical Sydney prices! Procrastination, mankind's greatest labour saving device!

2x 1kg ABE, carpet in doors. ARB TPMS, 3 compressors heatsink fan cooled 4L air tank. 4x 10L fuel tanks on LR roof racks & 2x 5L. Highly modified 28L Waeco fridge, 3x 26AH gel battery, 120w solar, awning, acoustic insulation. 2 spare Pirelli Scorpion AT Plus 255/60R18 Fuji/Almond/Dark Chestnut. Petrol 10.48L/100 (26.95mpg) inc 500kg payload
