The mat under the sleeping bag, which tourists also call “foam” or “karemat”, should be at least 8 millimeters thick. “Or better yet, 12 millimeters!” – the expert advises. For the most sensitive to uneven and hard surfaces, inflatable models of mats will do. True, they cost more and weigh more.
Flashlight and rain cover
