Vango says:

Our lightest sleeping mats, the Aotrom range is one of Vango's most technical and advanced sleeping mats. The same construction as our popular Aotrom mat, just in a more compact size, the Aotrom Short is ideal for adventurers who are looking for space-saving gear. It is the ultimate in lightweight and packs down to around the size of a can of juice, whilst not compromising on comfort. Its air filled Welded Channels mould to the contours of the ground and your body for a more comfortable sleep.

ASTM R-Value:

From 2020, there is a new industry standard for measuring the R-value (level of insulation) of sleeping mats – ASTM F3340-18. This new standard is the sleeping mat equivalent to the EN rating for sleeping bags.

You can now directly compare the R-value of mats rated using the ASTM F3340-18 with confidence that is a fair and accurate comparison between mats. In simple terms, the higher the R-value, the warmer the mat.

In general terms, an R-value below 2.0 is for summer use, 2.0 to 4.0 is for cooler 3 season use and 4.0+ is for winter temperatures. This will be also be dependent on your sleeping bag, how cold you sleep etc. Please contact our customer service team if you need advice on choosing the right mat for your activity.
