    Are they quiet? My MSR inflatable is so noisy…the Neo Air…I can’t use it becuase it crackles like a potato chip packet!

      These are quiet Rob. No rustling problem which you hear so much about with the Neo Air.

    Hi Tim,
    Based on your review and your comparison tables I’ve just ordered one of these mats, hopefully will get it in time for this weekends bivvy! You mention a super thin foam mat underneath – what do you use for this & where did you get it? Apologies if you have answered this elsewhere already. Thanks

      Hi Rich, I hope the mat arrives and fits the purpose. The thin mat’s mostly used for protection but, in carrying it, you also get a tough mat that you can sit on outside.
