Dream boat

2. The Outwell Dreamboat Mats

If your feeling brave enough, these mats are perfect all year round due to their new excellently versatile dual feature which achieves heat regulation through offset air core sculpting which enables greater or less body heat retention depending on which side is slept on. When the mat is turned with the air-cores next to the body excessive body heat can escape making it easier to cool down during warmer summer nights. If the mat is turned opposite it gives the user the optimal insulation as the body heat is reflected by the foam - perfect for colder nights. This mat is also easily self inflating with two air valves which also aid in easy deflation and packing.

Available in single and double sizes both with different thicknesses available for added comfort.
