If you want a bit more luxury then there are also Outwell 7.5 cm SIMs for £19.99. Original RRP £49.99. I think I would have gone for these if they were that price when I ordered the 5cm ones

If you're a student, you can get a coleman double inflatable airbed from amazon warehouse for 11 quid
airbed should be used, but as with almost everything I've bought on amazon warehouse, the box is sealed but has a few marks on the box. Basically brand new with dirty box.
Find the 2 quid footpump (amazon add on) and you've just saved yourself a bundle

These are superior to air beds

These are superior to air beds



​out of curiosity how are these better than airbeds? the only thing I can see is that this will pack away smaller, but I've never used one before so I'm interested to know what other plus points they have?

When you use a traditional air bed the air inside it gets cold at night and you lose body heat. with these SIMs they have foam inside and don't get as cold. Pros and cons.

As far as I know this type of mattress was invented by Thermarest many years ago as an alternative to the old fashioned foam roll mat/ karrimat. It enabled people to sleep in extreme cold where simple foam just was not warm enough. This was for wild camping, these had to be carried and were just 2-3cm thick. Comfort was not really the aim.

As times have moved on, car campers and sleepovers have started to use the thicker SIMs for their comfort. If you don't overinflate them, the foam will support you a bit and it dampens the wobbly airbed sensation, letting you sink into it more like a regular sprung mattress.

Cheap air beds often seem fine on first use but tend to start leaking after you have used them a few times. Good SIMs are more durable. Also if you have just pitched a big tent you sometimes aren't in the mood to inflate a bunch of airbeds for the whole family, just want to open a beer instead.

Some serious weight there, so I wouldn't recommend for backpackers. Plus, the pack size isn't too convenient.

​Me neither, mainly for car camping with a family tent.
