    You’ve got a different idea of small and compact to me if you think a 9 DLX fits the description

    Like Andy I've got some very effective, compact mats

    I've also got one of these that we used to use in the back of our Landcruiser, I took the rear seats out and had a false floor to sleep on. It's very comfy, no affect from the other half rolling over

    Happy to sell if of interest, we now have a roof tent with a mattress in it

    If insulation from the cold is the name of the game then either a single expedition weight closed cell foam mattress or two standard ones is the way to go but they don’t fold down too small being designed to carry outside a rucksack. I’ve slept in ice caves using a Karrimor camping mat and a thermarest air bed (foam filled) and been fine whereas a normal air bed would have had me shivering all night. It’s all about pack size most of the time and the Thermarest packs down to about 1/4 of the size of my Exped so if I’m using small panniers it stays at home.

    The Mrs and I do have our own bikes so not like we trying to pack one bike 2up. So got plenty of space,

    With reference to the cold, there is no mention of how cold a place he is going to sleep, so i thought something down to minus 15-20 ish would be ample, i may be wrong of course.

    If he goes below those temperatures he needs treatment.

    If you buy a down filled mat remember do not store in its compression bag. Store preferably hanging in a wardrobe or maybe in a pillowcase.
