Well I think I kinda gave up on the whole thing is bouncing because of convenience and reliability.

Looking for a recommendation for a sponge mattress surface.
Sample Ridge rest or have featured models ZLITE?

And point are there stores that sell in the country if not are there any sites where you can buy them with delivery to Israel?

Beyond the practice of what I wrote:
I think you should consider:
I am 40 years old and weigh 95 kilos at a height of some 177 .... not fat but very wide and heavy. In my experience it isn't easy at all to sleep (!) on a mattress soaked just long-while 20-year-olds sleep on gravel.
You can't compete with the reliability of a sponge, but you can't beat the convenience of inflatables. What to do???

As I already wrote here before. in light of the technological development in the world of bouncing-I was considering buying an inflatable 3 seasons (NEO AIR SHORT or maybe INERTIA KLYMT XLITE XLITE) and combine with plesiv mattress 2 ~ 3 seasons full length (you can play with it easily by cutting and pasting-eg 3/4 length RIDGEREST and pasting THINLITE GOSSAMERGEAR in the legs)
I think you can reach the combined weight and better performance if there is a bouncy tired patched חו"ח (whatever happens because it rests on the sponge, not the ground) you can always fold the sponge along the way and least reasonable protection and insulation under the body and putting feet on the bag, branches etc.

Both? OK I will think about it.
Hear about the discomfort I'm sure it's great.
But that system will consider the area 600 g. And to be quite expensive.

Consider what you are considering. But I always rest on sponges.

Arthur, after one night on an inflatable mattress, then never come back to take.

Arthur – it's going to be another one of those ashrshors?

[QUOTE = arthur] well I think I kinda gave up on the whole thing is bouncing because of convenience and reliability.



I don't understand why you gave up the bouncing because the comfort issue?
Beyond that, I agree with what Mickey suggested about the combo system.

Like you said, it's more expensive solution, and of course your judgment.

No, it's not going to be one of these threads because I want two weeks already.

About the discomfort I can throw it where I wanted to use it as a mattress for breaks etc.

If you delve into the details revealed it's just not accurate (the weight issue)

Given the same R VALUE (to sleep around a little below zero Celsius you need say R3) you can find thin sponge gymnastics and swells easy and short to be equally easy. Maybe even less.

The price is another story entirely.

So the system gives you the flexibility that you have a mattress that you can just throw on the ground and sit on breaks.

Also no insulation beneath foam mattresses system.

Remains only the issue of price-if you only have two weeks, that really means in Kenya which means limited supply and prices are pretty outrageous.

I read that the ridgerest lasts longer while zlite
Its disadvantage, who it was relevant that he folds the same way.

Not essential but try to find the current version called ridgerest SOlite

Is a little more durable and insulated

ZLITE is holding the less that is biodegradable in ruffles and finally snapped.
Not sure. Indeed easier to fold

I was trying to get both the SOL.

More generally: I wrote a post somewhere on the ingredients (i.e. what kinds of sponge diving and isolation coefficient per unit volume) most companies that are working with the good stuff (PACIFICOUTDOOR, THERMAREST, plus Cup MULTIMAT, MEC as GOSSAMERGEAR

If you go for a combination of swells you thinner. Look at GOSSAMERGEAR

The RIDGEREST undoubtedly is GOLDENSTANDARD

Notice none of them enough if you go under a minus 5 Celsius in a consistent manner (how rude of course)

One comment about the EGG CRATE PATTERN (cardboard eggs format as in ZLITE):
The idea of course is that the air caught in shkarories and increases the isolation.
-Heard reports (happened to me) low btemp (minus 10) sweat, ashcsh mthendpt down shkarories and accrued preferences later freezing when moved and reveals the mattress for. .. And like small cubes of ice.

At the moment I see only lapidot of the mattress to land
Link to website of lapidot

The SOL is that you recommend?


About the combination of the two mattresses. Now I stress at the moment it looks like a place where I can save money and weight. Maybe I'm wrong, I notice in the current tour + write in Journal of quality sleep every night.
Of course, I will share with you.

Now if there are no other suggestions in Israel I think I buy the RIDGEREST. What they say Arthur 41120.6584490741

Experienced in ridgerest (though not in the new version) and on and I prefer zlite much lately, mainly because it is thicker and less comfortable soft feeling stones etc. And he's hanging in there with me for years (. ..) without wear.

I need to go to lpidot and see them both in the eye and then decide.
It might be also one open I can lay on it a bit.
It is important to be thorough!

Very sad that the supply of quality space mattresses in the country have only one shop only 2 models.

I bought today Z-Lite SOL in lpidot.
It seems.
Comfortable, not shrunk a lot when I'm lying about.
Very compact when picking up the accordion.
I think about wrapping it in some heavy-duty trash bags and tie off the case in the final. Because I remember my old sponge mattress has many of tearing and punctures and sharp rocks during my tour.

Mickey

Without knowing it sounds like crap in. Amount of person perspiration sweating (and other such source conditions.) Fathom the amount of fluid required to create small cubes of ice. Just an urban legend that some bored hiker came when he saw the mattress.

If it were true then each other travelers would see thin ice layer low detail or wetness all along in higher detail any mattress or miles on it, do you?

Dear friends,

I have a crush and bought without thinking it twice

It has everything I like, cutting-edge technology, tiny volume and weight of 258 g.
Now we just go out into the field and try ...
