SKU: Air Impact 25
Brand: Robens

The Robens Air Impact 25 is a surprisingly large and comfortable sleeping mat for such a small and lightweight pack size.

For most family camping, I would recommend getting a large and comfortable self-inflating mat, like the Outwell Dreamboat.

When your kids are young, getting away camping is a great adventure. And while they still mike like the car camping as they get older, you do have the opportunity to take on new adventures together, such as backpacking or bikepacking.

For this type of camping, small, compact, lightweight gear is essential.

I was impressed with the lightweight camping gear that Robens showed me, such as this Robens Air Impact 25 SIM. It’s just the sort of thing to pack down small in your bag.  And fortunately, they agreed to send me one to review 😀

Air Impact 25 – Small Pack

The essential part of this type of Self-Inflating Mat is how small and lightweight it goes, and the Robens Air Impact 25 doesn’t disappoint there.

Air Impact 25 in its bag

I’m really pleased with the small pack size, which is only 26 x 14 cm and weighs just 575 grams

This isn’t going to take up a lot of space in my bag, unlike some mats I tried last year from Vango.

Small Size, Good Specs

Despite the small size, this mat still has some great specs.

Air Impact 25 Specs

R-Value of 2.1 (2°C) and inflates to 183 cm long, 51 cm wide, and 2.5 cm deep.

Inflating the Air Impact 25

You won’t find your fiddly typical SIM valve on the Robens Air Impact 25. It uses the Robens Peak Valve, a diaphram valve that makes it easier to inflate and deflate.

The Peak Valve

This valve makes it easier to inflate without air escaping, or push the valve wide open to easily get the air out.

We have some older hiking SIMs that are a little smaller when inflated, but take a lot more blowing to inflate them.
I was really surprised at how few puffs it took to get the bag inflated (and if you don’t like blowing into it, you can get a bag pump from Robens too).

Quick to inflate

It was really quick and easy to inflate the Air Impact 25.

Mat Construction and Comfort

Inside the mat, it is a mix of foam and air-core chambers. This helps keep the insulation good and the weight down.

Inflated mat

A good size when inflated. You can see the air cores in the foam giving it a honeycomb appearance.

I found these air cores gave the sleeping mat a lot of support when combined with the foam, I was surprised how comfortable this 2.5 cm thick mat is. Laying on my side, I didn’t feel the hard ground on my hip, nor on my elbow, so the mat was giving me plenty of support.

Laying on the inflated mat

Laying down on the job! A quick test of the inflated mat

So far I’m giving this the Thumbs Up. Next plan is to take it Bike-Packing. I’ll update this review when I’ve tested it some more.
