The Tensor Regular Sleeping Mat from Nemo is really light-weight comfortable sleeping mat with an impressively small pack size.
Offering quieter, more supportive sleep at a tiny packed size, Tensor™ ultralight sleeping pad stands apart as the ultimate backcountry adventurer’s best friend. Updated with a zero-profile, micro-adjustable valve and included Vortex™ pump sack, NEMO's lightest sleeping pad uses premium 20D fabrics to shave grams without sacrificing plush comfort.
Spaceframe™ baffles offer unparalleled stability, weight distribution, and a quieter sleeping experience by using low-stretch die-cut trusses to eliminate springiness and keeping your elbows and hips from poking through to the ground.
Nemo's 2019 Tensor Regular Sleeping Mat is an extremely small and functional package. Don't let the lack of R value put you off this mat is given a temperature range of 2 to 7 degrees Celsius which is impressive given the low weight and pack size.
The mat packs slightly smaller than 1 litre Nalgene bottle and is quickly inflated using the included vortex pump sack. Using the sack prevents moisture getting into the mat. The mat is thick and comfortable to sleep on, I didn't sink through when laying on my side. The rectangular shape give you more room than a mummy shape and its easier to join 2 rectangular mats together. Despite the low weight the material feels durable and is quiet without the 'wrinkle' effect of other mats so wriggly sleepers have no fear.
