Here is a link to a review of the Klymit Inertia X-lite by daveswildcamping

As Dave says, it isn't good.


Definitely not for me, but there are a lot of positive reviews out there too.


PS - Dave does like his steaks!

It seems to be a bit like marmite this mat.

I thought the review was very funny, these bits in particular

"the Klymit Inertia X-lite has been banished to a box I call my wildcamping junkbox for the past year, BEST PLACE FOR THIS PILE OF [censored]"

It is safe to say Dave didn't think much of the Klymit  :)

After all that I have said about camping mats, I've just taken a punt on a 'lightweight' (506g) camping mat from Lidl; price 17.99, with a 3 year guarantee. Not for my own use of course - honest!  :D

I'll report back on whether it is any good.
