Camping: That’s why you shouldn’t blow up a sleeping pad with your mouth


Campers should not inflate a camping mat directly with their mouths. It is better to use a pump bag, the experts of the magazine “Alpin” (issue 7/2029) advise. The reason:

Many manufacturers supply a so-called pump bag together with the sleeping pad. But it is also available as an accessory in the trade.

Which mat protects best against cold?

And how well does the mat protect against the cold in the floor? The degree of isolation is specified with the R value. The higher this value, the better the insulation. However, the R value should be based on the uniform ASTM F 3340 standard, according to the “Alpin”. Only then can different R values ​​be compared with each other.
