Thermal Resistance: The R-Value of Thermal Sleeping Mats

The so-called R-value is referring to the thermal output of any given thermal mat. Lightweight thermal sleeping mats for use in warmer places or for use in the three warmer seasons generally have an R-value of 2.5-4. This makes them just as perfect for sleeping in 20 degree heat as they are in temperatures around the freezing point with a weight of 0.5 kg.
If you prefer to be warmer, then you should go for a thermal mat with an R-value of 4.5 or higher. These thermal mats even insulate enough in minus degrees and have a weight of 0.6 to 1.5 kg.
If you need to save on weight and are more in the market for a soft surface than heat, then you can also go for a thermal mat with an R-value under 2.5. This may only make it suitable for summer use, but it has an incredibly low weight of 0.4 kg!
